What is a Professional Organizer?

Professional organizers strive for solutions which are realistic, attainable, comfortable, and align with your style. We guide, encourage and educate clients about the basic principles of organizing with support, focus and direction that can reach beyond our face-to-face sessions.

Cleaning Service vs Professional Organizer

Cleaning Services help when your house is dirty

Professional Organizers help when your house is cluttered or needs organizing systems put in place

A professional organizer will not be cleaning your home. Instead, we work with you to understand the organizing problem and your organizing goals. Then we implement solutions and teach organizing skills for long-term success. If you are interested in a cleaning service, we’d be happy to look into that for you.

How Long Will My Project Take?

It depends on which specific room or space you are looking to have organized, how much there is to sort through and organize, and then what is needed to be done with your unwanted items. Maybe you want to have a yard sale, or bring your unwanted items a donation site.

Before we begin working, I will provide you with an estimated completion time. Projects are not quoted “by room” because I only see the outside perspective of things until we really begin digging in. From there, your ability to decision make and assist in progress will also determine speed of the project. In cases where I am working alone, the process moves very quickly!

 The time it takes to complete an organizing project depends on many factors, including but not limited to:

  • The number of people working on the project at hand.
  • The client’s ability to make productive decisions regarding items being purged.
  • Household or digital distractions.
  • Not completing action items in-between sessions.
  • The amount of clutter in areas not visible during consultation.
  • The client’s vision for the space.

Will you make me get rid of all of my stuff?

Absolutely not! Getting organized is about being able to find and use the things you love and use at your fingertips in order to simplify your life. My goal is to help you reach your goals. Whether that is minimizing your possessions to simplify your life or organizing everything you own. The first step to any organizing project is to sort like with like. By putting all your like-items together it provides an excellent opportunity to reduce the number of items we own by removing duplicates, stained or worn items, un-used or un-loved possessions as well.

Where will my donations go?

Spruced Up Home can take one car load of donations to a donation center. We can also set up for a donation company to come to your home.
