How do we get started?
Contact us for a complimentary phone consultation. We'll discuss your project needs and get some basic information from you. Second, we'll schedule an in-home walk through. You can show us your space and we'll discuss the specifics of your project. Thirdly, if we are a good fit and decide to move forward, we'll book your first appointment (3 hour minimum) and get started.
How long will it take?
The amount of time it takes depends on the scope of the project and how quickly you are able to make decisions. No two projects are ever alike, so there is no "one size, fits all" for timing.
How much will it cost?
The cost depends on the scope of the project and hours needed to complete. Contact us to learn more about pricing.
Should I clean up before you arrive?
No, please don't tidy before our arrival. It's important for us to see your everyday living environment in order to assess what your needs are. Remember, there is no judgment; we are here to help you.
Do I need to purchase organizing products before our first session?
No. First, we need to go through the organizing process and then determine what (if any) products are needed. Often, we can use containers you already have in your home. If you need or prefer new organizing products, we can help you figure out what to buy. You can purchase them on your own or we can shop for you, too.
Will you take pictures of my space?
Yes, we take pictures of your space to help with our planning and organizing strategy. It's also very helpful for our clients to see the progress they've made with "before and after" photos. No photos will be published or shared without the client's written consent and shared photos will be anonymous.
Do I need to be involved in the organizing process?
Yes! We want to understand your organizing needs and come up with solutions that work specifically for you. That will require communication between us and hands-on learning. And, we love working with people. While we can work independently on some aspects of the project, your involvement is critical to its success.
Will I have homework?
Possibly. It depends on your organizing needs and personal situation. Our goal is to transfer knowledge to you, so you can maintain your newly organized space. You may have tasks you need to complete in between sessions. But, we will discuss and determine what works best for you.
Will you travel outside of San Jose?
Yes, we serve the greater San Francisco Bay Area. A travel fee may apply for clients outside a 30 mile radius.
Any Professional Affiliations?
Yes, we are a proud member and volunteer of the National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals (National and San Francisco Bay Area chapters). NAPO has over 3,500 members worldwide dedicated to helping people and organizations bring order and efficiency to their lives. We attend conferences and continuing education in the organizing and productivity industry. We also adhere to NAPO's code of ethics of client confidentiality and maintaining professional integrity.
