Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Professional Organizing Service?
A Professional Organizing Service is someone that helps you to overcome clutter and disorganization to make your life less stressful and your time more efficient.

Why hire a Professional Organizer?
A Professional Organizer not only helps you organize your mess, but they also create easy-to-follow systems to help keep it that way. They are there to help you through the entire process or to get down and dirty and do everything themselves. They are there to sort, file, de-clutter, and de-stress to help make your home a better place to live.

What are the benefits of getting organized?
EVERYTHING! You will find yourself having more time, less stress, you will know where everything is located (which saves time and huge headaches), and it will make your life easier and, more importantly, happier. Your environment plays a huge part on your attitude, outlook, and even blood pressure levels. We have often been told that our energy is infectious.  We bring the energy and ignite your passion for your organized space!

When your job is complete, you will feel the calmness and peace of your space.  Organization leads to a tranquil existence and who doesn’t want that?

Which areas do you service?
We are happy to assist you with any area in your home or business that overwhelms you!  We are up for the challenge!

Will you work with me or just coach me?
It’s entirely up to you. If you don’t want to touch a thing, you don’t have to. But, if you would like to work side by side, it’ll get the job done faster!  We will easily work around your schedule and comfort level.

How do I get started?
Simply contact me and tell me what needs to be addressed, what rooms/areas you’d like organized, and any other details you’d like to include. I will then get back with you and we can set up a time for our initial meeting.

What takes place at the consultation?
I come and evaluate the space(s) as-is and formulate a plan of action. Then, we will discuss what problems you have with the space(s), what you would like to see change, and what is currently working for you.

Will you be flexible and able to work around my schedule?
I’m here to work with you and your schedule.

What do I need to prepare for the work session?
Nothing!  We will do our best to work with any organizing supplies you have on hand and only purchase what is needed for the task at hand.

Will my sessions be confidential?
You betcha! All meeting, conversations, and questions are between you and I, and no one else. To see other guidelines I stand by, please read the bottom section of my About page.

What are your rates?
Please see the Services page for details.

What if I only need you for a few hours?
That’s fine with me! There is a minimum of 3 hours for each project.

Where do you take donations?
​I feel that it is important to give back to the community and to help those in need. Because of that, if the client doesn’t have a preference, I will take household donations to The Giving Tree Foundation in Wake Forest. The wonderful thing about The Giving Tree Foundation is that all proceeds go to Wake Forest Schools. It is a non-profit resale and gift shop for household items.

​I prefer to take clothing donations to Note in the Pocket in Raleigh. Their mission is to provide clothing to impoverished and homeless children in Wake County.

For unwanted furniture or larger items, those donations go to The Green Chair Project which reuses donated household furnishings to renew lives of participants referred from area programs who are recovering after homelessness, crisis or disaster.

It is important to know that The Giving Tree Foundation, Note in the Pocket and The Green Chair all provide receipts for you tax deductions.

Will you do speaking engagements?
Yes, I would love to share my love of organization with your group!

Are there any other resources you recommend?

Yes, I find the following to be very helpful:

Estate Planning Information: North Carolina Bar Association – This is the Law Pamphlet

Digital Photo Organization: VandenBroucke Imaging – Digital Photo Organizing Service

Recycling/Dump: North Wake Multi-Material Recycling Facility

What payments are accepted?
I accept cash, check, Venmo and credit card. Payment is due at the end of each daily work session.

See the remarkable changes!
