Do you have one room in your house that you keep the door closed and hope it will just go away? Or maybe, it’s those kitchen cabinets that seem to be reproducing content while you sleep. Maybe you just can’t find your keys in the morning and find yourself rushing out the door ten minutes behind every morning. Or maybe it’s your entire house that needs some order brought to the chaos that comes with a busy, modern lifestyle. I will help you find simple, efficient solutions and systems that will save you time, money and possibly your sanity.
Here's how it works:
We begin with a Complimentary Phone Consultation:
This 30-minute to 1 hour phone consultation will give you the opportunity to tell me about the projects you want to tackle and the organizing goals you would like to reach. We will have a chance to discuss what you want to accomplish and how I can help. I like to spend quite a bit of time with this conversation so that I can come as prepared as possible for our first session. Because this is a lengthy call, please understand that we may need to schedule a good time for both of us.
From there we move to an One Hour In-Home Consultation:
During the In Home Consultation, we will tour your home, or as much as you are comfortable showing me ( I understand those scary rooms we just can’t open the door to yet) and determine what your priorities are. Generally this takes one hour, depending on the size and scope of the projects you have in mind. Please do not clean up before I come. I will need to see the "real deal" in order to properly understand the scope of the project. If you are comfortable with the plan of action I suggest and are wanting to begin immediately, we can get started right away on the area highest on your “help me please!” list. I work in minimum of three hour sessions, so this day would be a total of four hours. Keep in mind that we may not have all the supplies that we discover you need for the project we begin this day, but we will make a list of what is needed and determine which method you would like to purchase the supplies. If you decide to tackle your project on your own, I will leave you with a few suggestions and ideas on how to proceed and will collect my $55 hourly rate.
Let the fun begin!
If, during the In-Home Consultation, you decide to begin the process of organizing your space, we will decide together how much you would like to accomplish and I will give you an estimate of how much time it will take. Purchasing a larger block of hours will give you a larger discount. Keep in mind that some projects go faster than expected and some projects grow as we get deeper into the heart of things. Another factor that can affect the time a project takes is your ability to make decisions and keep moving forward. There is NO pressure in making decisions, and I will never "make" you get rid of things you are attached to. But I will encourage you to think about your possessions and why you keep the things you do. Need it? Love it? or Toss it?
I work in minimum of 3 hr sessions
$165 - 3 hr
$295 - 6 hr (10% discount) Paid in advance
$445 - 9 hr (20% discount) Paid in advance
Larger blocks of time may also be purchased with additional discounts, if paid in full, in advance. Time must be used within one year from purchase. For three hour sessions, payment is due at the end of each session.
There are three methods to obtain needed supplies:
I will provide you with a list of what is needed and where to purchase it. Please make sure you have the supplies before our next session.
We can shop together. This method involves you in the fun decisions like color and style. Shopping's always more fun with a friend!
I can do the shopping for you. Some people just don’t enjoy shopping. Hard to believe, but true. Or you just don’t have the time or desire to shop at Staples for that perfect file box or drawer divider. I will either deliver the supplies personally or have them shipped to you.
Typical supplies needed to complete your project are labels, file folders, bins, baskets or other containers, and sometimes shelving. Before we rush off in a shopping frenzy, we will “shop your house” to see if there are supplies and solutions already available. Think recycling, reusing, and repurposing. That’s all the rage and works quite well quite often.
Whether I shop with you or for you, the fee is $20 per hour. I do not charge for mileage or drive time to shopping locations. The cost of agreed upon supplies is the responsibility of the client
Each project is unique and tailor-made for each individual.
Payment is due at the time of service and I accept cash, check or PayPal and all major credit cards.
There is a 3-hour minimum, unless other arrangements are made ahead of time.
There is a travel fee for clients located 35 miles outside of the Austin city limits.
There is a cancellation fee of 1/2 the time booked if canceled less than 24 hours in advance.
