Frequently Asked Questions (In Person Organizing)

Curious?  Here are some of the most commonly asked questions from prospective clients who are ready to get organized:

Q.    Are you going to make me throw my stuff away?

A.      Nope.  You are the decision maker for anything that leaves your space.  You won’t throw anything away that you don’t want to part with.

Q.    How long will the organizing process take?

A.      It depends on how ready to get organized you are.  I’ve cleared two cluttered rooms and transformed them into a functional craft room and blank canvas for Lego creations in under 4 hours, but it really depends on how quickly the client can make decisions.  I’ve match the pace of our clients.  Most clients prefer to work in smaller chunks of time than an entire day and we can set up a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly schedule to keep the progress moving forward.

Q.    How much do you charge?

A.    Streamlined Living is competitively priced and charge per hour of work for each team member.  We are efficient and work quickly, but never rush.  Check out the Work with Me page for details.

Q.    What should I buy before the first visit?

A.      Nothing!  If you are like most people, you own more than enough container options already.  We’ll work with what you have, and if necessary, we’ll make a plan for any purchases together.

Q.    Should I clean or try to sort through items before your initial visit?

A.      Please don’t!  You can clear your sink of dirty dishes and run the vacuum cleaner, but beyond that, please don’t try to get a head start.  Believe it or not, it’s most helpful for organizers to see the space as it normally is.  You can best prepare by getting ready to make decisions and be motivated to see change in your space.

Q.    Will you teach me to be organized?

A.   Absolutely!  You will learn tips and strategies that you can apply to other spaces in your home or office through out the organizing process.  See what clients have had to say about this.

Q.    Do you offer gift certificates?

A.    Gift certificates are not offered because individuals need to want to be organized themselves.  There are far more people who need to be organized than there are who want to be organized.
