In-Person Professional Organizing Services

 

If you live in the Raleigh, NC area and are overwhelmed and stressed by clutter and disorganization, and ready to make a change to declutter, organize and simplify your life, my in-person hands-on professional organizing services can help you.

 

I act like a personal trainer for your space, helping you to declutter and organize your home or office, while transferring organizing skills to you, so you can maintain a more organized life. 

Spaces Organized

Home Offices – Kitchens – Closets – Garages – Bedrooms – Playrooms – Bonus Rooms – Living Rooms – Dining Rooms – Bathrooms – Entryways – Laundry Rooms – Craft Rooms – Attics – Basements – Sheds – Mail – Paperwork – Filing Systems

How my In-Person Organizing Services Work

It starts with a complimentary 30 minute consultation via phone or video chat to discuss your organizing needs. 

We then schedule in-person hands-on organizing sessions in blocks of time of 3 hours or more. The amount of time it takes to complete an organizing project depends on the size and scope as well as the speed at which you make decisions.

 

At the first in-person session, I walk through your home or office with you to discuss your goals. We devise a basic plan of action together, and then I begin hands-on decluttering and organizing for the remainder of the scheduled session.

 

It is most productive if at least 1 home owner is available to work with me side by side, although some sorting can be done with minimal involvement by the homeowner, if requested. At least 1 homeowner must be present in the home for the entirety of the scheduled session.

 

I will usually work side-by-side with you to sort, declutter and organize, and I help you to determine what to keep, donate, sell or discard. You are the final decision-maker. I provide non-judgmental guidance, support and encouragement during this process. I also provide you with many resources on ways to donate, sell or discard items.

 

It often takes multiple sessions to completely declutter and organize a home or office. Sessions are scheduled based on your timeline and organizing needs. I offer session choices in blocks of time of 3 hours, 6 hours or 8 hours. 

In-Person Hands-on Organizing Sessions Include

  • An in-home assessment & basic plan of action (during the start of the 1st in-person session only).
  • Hands-on decluttering, organizing or unpacking during the scheduled time.
  • Free donation drop off of up to 1 car load of items to a nearby Goodwill, if requested.
  • The tax-deductible donation receipt will be provided to you.
  • Supplies provided for use during each session- trash bags, Post-it notes, label maker labels and empty cardboard boxes.
  • An email with follow-up tasks from the session.
  • A basic plan of action based on your organizing priorities.
  • Project planning and research in between sessions.
  • Support by e-mail or phone in between scheduled sessions.
  • A shopping list of storage product suggestions for the area(s) worked on during the session. *Personal shopping services are offered for an additional fee, but most clients prefer to shop on their own.
  • Recommended local resources.
  • Travel to and from your home or office within the Raleigh, NC service area.
