Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer Interior Design services?

Yes! If you would like additional Interior Design services beyond the spaces we are organizing, please let me know so I can learn more about your project and send you a custom quote. Whether you need assistance designing a room, decorating, or selecting fixtures and furniture, I can help!

What is included when booking you for a session?

We supply trashbags, boxes (when needed), post its, paper, pens, sharpies, tape, etc. Time for additional services such as trash disposal, donation drop-offs, recycling, or project-related purchases will be billed at my hourly rate (pre-approved by you).

What are your payment options?

I require a payment of 50% of your session at least a week in advance of your appointment. We will send you an invoice via quickbooks. We accept cash, checks, and debit/credit cards. Electronic checks are preferred.

How do I prepare for our first session?

Please do not organize or buy storage containers or supplies in preparation for our session together. When I arrive, I will assess your space and we will discuss your routines. It is most helpful for me to see your space "lived in" and see where items are getting placed naturally.

What's your cancellation policy?

Last minute cancellations negatively impact my small business and schedule as I have blocked out time just for you and am booked out in advance. I require a 72 hour notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment that is less than 3 hours, unless it is a medical emergency. For large projects that require more than our standard 3 hour sessions, I will need a week's notice to cancel or reschedule.

What should I expect when you come for our first session?

When I arrive, you will walk me through your space and we will discuss your current routines. We will go over your goals again and talk about what’s working and what isn’t working in more detail. I will take measurements of the space, and record what items you have in the space now that need organizing. If there is time, we will begin categorizing/purging/organizing your items. We will not be able to get everything done in one day, but it is possible we can make a big dent together! After leaving your home, I will begin working on your Design Plan, and send it to you within a few days. Your Design Plan includes a map of your space as well as organizational solutions including what to buy and where to buy it! 

What’s a Design Plan?

The Design Plan is an action plan which outlines your space and tells you what to buy, where to buy it, and where to put it! It simplifies the organizational process and gives us both a roadmap of where things should be placed. At this point in the process, you will have the ability to purchase my recommended storage solutions and put it all in place yourself or If you would like my help to implement the Design Plan, you would need to schedule a follow up session with me. 

Do I have to buy storage containers?

No! While I routinely recommend containers and storage solutions to keep clutter at bay on flat surfaces, I know some clients would like to use what they have already. Whatever your budget or preferences, we can work together to make a Design Plan that fits your needs and budget.

Do you accept payment plans?

I do accept payment plans on a case-by-case basis, for larger projects that require a longer timeline for completion.

Why should I choose your services over other professional organizers?

I hold an accredited degree in Interior Design, demonstrating a deep and more comprehensive investment in time and training than a certificate or course alone. That means I am fully trained in Interior Design fundamentals and principles, space planning, materials, construction documents, and interior decorating. I spent several years of my life learning and mastering Interior Design and continue to stay up to date with the latest and greatest in professional organization and trends. When organizing your space, I am strategizing creative solutions that go beyond mere organization. I consider many variables such as item categorization, use and frequency, placement, color, and interior decorating principles for a harmonious space.  

Why is the first session more expensive than follow up sessions? 

The first session price includes extra time built in for me to measure and analyze your space, strategize storage solutions, and create your unique Design Plan. Depending on the project size, I may need to schedule extra time for mapping your space and creating your design plan. As a trained interior designer, I am thinking beyond mere organization and am analyzing your space and how it is used, categorizing items and spaces by use and frequency, and considering colors, shapes, and design principles for a harmonious design.
