Why should I call a professional organizer?
A professional organizer can help save you time, money and energy. We can help you gain control and put systems in place so that your space will be less frustrating, more functional, more efficient, and overall more pleasing. Our goal is to help you regain a sense of calm and create a system that works for you. We specialize in creating and transforming spaces to make things easier and more enjoyable. We know how busy life can be, and our job is to help you lighten the load and put a smile on your face!
What can I expect on the first visit?
First we will determine which area(s) you would like to focus on, and then we'll talk about what is currently working for you and what is not. We will work together to decide how you would like your space to function and what your vision is for that particular space. Then we will dig in and work to make that vision a reality!
How long will it take to organize my space?
Every space is unique so times may vary, but there are a couple of key items that can greatly affect the amount of time needed:
1) The area or areas you wish to organize, and
2) How involved you wish to be.
For example, office space is much more time-intensive than a small closet or pantry because of the sheer volume involved and the time needed to examine each item. (The same amount of space that is occupied by 3 sweaters can hold 1000+ sheets of paper). How quickly and easily you make decisions regarding which items to keep, discard or donate also affects the process. Space Matters works very hard to make the entire process fast, easy, fun and efficient, so whether you want to be there every step of the way or just turn things over, rest assured - we will work like crazy to get your space transformed, because we're as excited to see it as you!
Will I need to be present during the whole organizing session?
It is entirely up to you. We are happy to organize your space solo, with just your occasional input and availability for questions, just as we are equally happy to have you present and participating every step of the way. We are very flexible and want you to do whatever you are most comfortable with. Your space, your rules!
Will my organizer throw stuff out?
Absolutely not - unless that is your wish, of course. Your possessions are yours to do with as you please; we will never get rid of anything without checking with you first. Our goal is to help you decide what items are truly meaningful and important to you and what you would like to keep in the space you have, versus what you wish to donate, discard or relocate. Once these decisions are made we will help you to create a space to store and display your possessions in a way that is both functional and pleasing to you personally.
Will my personal information be kept confidential?
Yes, absolutely. As a member of NAPO (National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals), we abide by a strict professional code of ethics as set forth in the NAPO guidelines (napo.net).
How do you charge for organizing sessions?
We charge $75 per hour and are very flexible with our scheduling. You are always in control of how much or how little time you want to us to spend with you. As always, we will share ideas, tips and tricks with you along the way so that you can decide exactly which parts you would like us to tackle versus what you would like to do on your own. Call us anytime for a free consultation - we're happy to help!
Is there a charge for the consultation?
No, our initial consultation is absolutely free. We will be delighted to meet with you to discuss your needs and share our ideas for organizing and transforming your space so you can get to where you want to be. Sometimes, all it takes is a new set of eyes to get you going in the right direction!
