Questions and Answers

Why should I hire a Professional Organizer? Shouldn't I be able to do this myself?


  • A Professional Organizer knows a lot about organizing techniques and products. You might well know the basics, but the Professional Organizer has a whole bag of tricks you've probably never considered.
  • If you've had a clutter/organizing problem for a while, it can seem overwhelming to tackle it on your own. The Professional Organizer brings energy and encouragement to the process. The drudgery goes away, or is at least held at bay. You'll often hear my clients and me laughing as we go about our work.
  • We all have areas where we've developed our skills, and others where we have not. Many people hire various types of help: a gardener, an interior designer, a tax preparer, a personal trainer, etc. Why not a Professional Organizer, too?



How long will it take to organize my space?


That depends on many things: how much we need to sort through, how long it takes you to make decisions, etc. I've worked with one client where we completed work in her kitchen in five hours, while with another client (and a smaller kitchen) it took more like fifteen hours. After our first session working togeher, we will both have a better idea of how long your organizing project will take.
