Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my project take?
The amount of time a project takes depends upon a number of factors, including the size of the space, the amount of “stuff,” the desired outcome, and your decision-making process. I will work hard to make the best use of our time together and keep you moving forward, while respecting your individual pace. After an initial consultation, I can give you a general estimate of the amount of time expected to complete your project.
Will I need to buy new containers?
Much of that depends upon your preference and your project. I will strive to work within your budget, utilize existing containers if desired, and provide you with multiple container and price-point options. If new items are needed, you can purchase them directly, or I can purchase them on your behalf ( a full-service shopping option is provided for an additional fee).
What will I do with any items I choose to donate?
Each session includes a complementary drop-off of donated items to a nearby thrift shop or charity. If you would like your items to go to a specific charity or organization, a minimal fee may be added to cover time and mileage expenses.
How will my privacy be protected?
I will keep all your information confidential and will not reveal any of your personal or business information to others without your permission. I adhere to the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO) Code of Ethics ( for more information visit www.napo.net).
Will I have to get rid of my stuff?
No, you make the final call on what to keep. Deciding what to keep and what to let go is often the most difficult step in the organizing process. I will assist and support you throughout this process, based upon your individual preferences and goals. If you are looking to simplify and reduce your possessions, I can provide information and encouragement to help you do so. If you don't want to get rid of anything and just want organize what you have, I can help with that, too.
