What is a Professional Organizer A Professional Organizer is someone who helps you to overcome clutter and disorganization to make your life less stressful and your time, more efficient. Professional Organizers provide long-term solutions to organizational challenges. We provide guidance, support and the tools to create the skills needed to get and stay organized.
How can I benefit from hiring a Professional Organizer? A Professional Organizer not only helps you organize your mess, but they also create easy-to-follow systems to help keep it that way. They are there to help you through the entire process or to get down and dirty and do everything themselves. They are there to sit, sort, clean, file, de-clutter, and de-stress to help make your home or office a better place to live and/or work.
What are the benefits of getting organized? EVERYTHING! You will find yourself having more time and less stress. You will know where everything is located (which saves time, money and huge headaches), and it will make your life easier and, more importantly, happier. Your environment plays a huge part on your attitude, outlook, and even blood pressure levels. When it’s in disarray, that will reflect and play an immediate part on your life. It makes life so much simpler when your environment is organized, clean, and it’s easy to find things.
Which areas do you service? I will tackle anything from your children’s playroom to your kitchen pantry. Almost all areas of your home, office and vehicles are covered. You can see a full listing of areas and rooms serviced on the services page.
Will you work with me or just coach me? It’s entirely up to you. If you don’t want to touch a thing, you don’t have to. But, if you or anyone else wants to help, it’ll get the job done faster, and in the end, save you money.
How do I get started? Simply contact me here and tell me what needs to be addressed, what rooms/areas you’d like organized, and any other details you’d like to include. I will then get back with you and we can set up a time for our initial meeting.
What takes place at the initial meeting? I come and evaluate the space(s) as-is and formulate a plan of action. Then, we will discuss what problems you have with the space(s), what you would like to see change, and what is currently working for you.
What should I do before you arrive? Absolutely nothing. It's important that I see how you function in your space on a daily basis. We will discuss habits, routines, etc. and come up with a custom plan to suit your needs.
What should I purchase for the session? Please make sure to have large trash bags available. These will be used for items that need to be discarded or donated. If you happen to have some boxes for sorting on hand or have access to them, those would be helpful as well.
Will you be flexible and able to work around my schedule? I’m here to work with you and your schedule.
Will my sessions be confidential? Absolutely! All meetings, conversations, and questions are between you and I, and no one else. To see other guidelines I stand by, please read the bottom section of my about page
What are your rates? Please see the services page for details.
What if I only need you for a few hours? That’s A-Ok! We have a package that will suit your needs.
What methods of payments are accepted? I accept cash, checks and all major credit cards, and payments are due in full for packages.
What areas do you service? I service the Dearborn/Dearborn Heights and surrounding areas.
Do you sell organizing products/storage systems? If organizational products are needed/desired for the project, I can provide product recommendations within your allotted budget. I do try to work with products you may already have on hand to help keep cost low.
How long will the project take to complete? Each project/session is unique. I can recommend a package for the completion of your project. The amount of time it takes to complete a project will depend on a number of factors:
Volume of clutter
Level of disorganization
How quickly client can make decisions
Energy level of the client
