What Can I Expect?
The process is pretty simple. It starts with a call, we make a plan, and then get to work!

The first step is the hardest, but it is FREE! Just pick up the phone, send me a text or give me a call! On the initial call we discuss your trouble areas, what your goals are and what you have tried in the past. This call typically takes about 10 minutes. At this time I answer any additional questions you have and request photos. I am a planner and the photos help me to prepare for our work session so it can be as efficient as possible! There is no judgement, just planning!
The In-Home Work Session
Want to invite me over to see your home in its not so finest form? Don’t stress over this part! I do not judge or criticize. You are human. You have a family and a home and a billion other things demanding your attention. I ask all my client NOT to preclean! I want to see your space as it is normally used. Otherwise, the solution we devise might not get to the root of the problem. Think your problem areas are worse than anything I’ve ever seen? Try me! I’ve likely seen worse (or lived it). The messier the better!
We start the work session with a tour of the areas we discussed over the phone. Working together we create a vision, set goals and discuss the plan of attack. After the paperwork is signed, we get started!
Organize All The Things!
This part is my favorite! The work sessions will involve defining the use of the space, editing items that don’t belong or are no longer wanted, sorting, and defining homes for everything that is left. Most often I work side by side with the client to determine what can be purged and to design solutions that work with their way of thinking. Afterall, no two people are the same! The sorting and organizing can be done with you or on my own. I always like the team work, but not everyone's busy life can afford the time. Depending on the budget and time constraints, larger projects may require that I leave you with homework to be completed in between visits.
It gets worse before it gets better! When was the last time you saw the very back of your pantry? Been a while hasn’t it! When we sort it takes up space, but it goes back! I’ll have a billion and one questions and will likely fire them in rapid succession (I value your time and try to work quickly). Some will be easy, others not so much. You just need to do your best and if you don’t know the answer the second I ask, it is not a problem. We just move on and come back later. Being involved in the process ensures you understand and are able to maintain the systems.
After each work session I will take one car load of items with me when I leave and donate them to the client's local charity of choice! For most of my clients this is a favorite part. I am often told that this service alone is worth the cost! It just feels good to have the weight gone from your space!
