  • How long will it take to organize my home?
    It really depends on a variety of factors. If your home has become cluttered over the course of several years, it's unrealistic to expect it to be completely organized in a day or two. As a professional organizer, I always recommend starting with a consultation. This gives me a chance to get to know you and your home, and to better understand the scope of the project. During our consultation, we can discuss your goals and timeline, and I can provide you with an estimate of how long the process will likely take. Organizing your home can be an overwhelming task, but with the help of a professional organizer, you can transform your space into a calming oasis. Whether you're looking to declutter your closet or revamp your entire home, a professional organizer can provide the guidance and support you need to achieve your goals.
  • Will you force me to discard my belongings?
    This is a valid question! Rest assured that it's entirely up to you. My goal is to work collaboratively with my clients to streamline their living spaces and create a more organized, serene environment. I will never pressure you into parting with anything you're not ready to let go of; instead, I'll help you identify items that are no longer serving a purpose in your life and provide guidance on how to dispose of them responsibly. Decluttering your home can be a liberating process, and my clients often feel a sense of relief and calm once I've finished. By removing excess items and creating systems for storing the things you love, you'll be able to enjoy a more spacious, functional living space. In short, you'll never be forced to throw anything away when working with me. I'm here to support you in creating a home that reflects your values, priorities, and unique personality.
  • How far do you travel for an organizing job?
    I cover the San Francisco Bay Area: San Francisco to Palo Alto; Pacifica to Half Moon Bay. I will commute to the East Bay and Marin County, but will charge the bridge toll and will charge a $50 travel fee for anything further than 50 miles from Daly City.
  • Do I need to clean up before the organizer arrives for the consultation or first session?
    No. As an organizer, I understand that life gets complicated and it's not always possible to keep a tidy home. It's best for me to see your home's current state to truly understand which area(s) needs the most attention. Please keep it as is.
  • What happens to the items I no longer want to keep?
    We will discuss the best option for items that are in good condition and can still be used by others. I try my best to not send anything to the landfill unless it's no longer safe to use. Anything recyclable should be placed in recycling bins or dropped off at specific locations. I include only one car load of donations in my services, but the client will decide what would be the best use of my time in handling additional items.
  • Do I have to be there when you work in my space?
    Ideally, the client will available for me to ask questions about what they would like to keep and what is going away. I will be doing most of the work such as sorting items for you to review. Your participation will be minimal, but crucial. The end result should be something that you agreed to throughout the process.
  • Do I need to purchase storage bins or baskets?
    Storage products can be very expensive; therefore, I try to use what the client already has in the home and/or office. At the end of the session, I can assess if any additional products are needed and will create a list of recommended products either on Amazon or other online vendor (e.g. The Container Store, Target). The client will decide what, if anything, they will purchase. l ask that clients purchase products on their own using the lists I provide as I want to focus my efforts on organizing your home and/or office. However, if you absolutely need me to purchase products, I will use part of your session to place the order online and will request delivery directly to your home. It is not a problem if the client does not have the budget for additional products. The client and I will look around the house and repurpose baskets, bins, and boxes that can be used for storage.
