Why do I need the help of a Professional Organizer?
For many people, organizing is not a natural skill. They find that even with their best efforts, they cannot complete organizing tasks independently or that the hard work doesn’t last over time. Professional Organizers can remove the stress and intimidation many people feel with an organizing project by teaching clients valuable skills and strategies to meet their unique needs. Organizational Bliss has extensive training and hands-on experience with many different circumstances and personalities.
Will you make me throw away all of my things?
Absolutely NOT. I believe it is my role to encourage you and discuss reasons why letting go of clutter could benefit you, but I will never force someone to part with anything. All choices are completely yours. When purging is complete, we will evaluate how your kept items can best be organized in the space available.
How long will my organizing project take?
This question depends greatly on the area’s purpose, amount of clutter, size of the space and the client’s motivation for change. Some projects can be completed in one session while others may take multiple visits to complete. Session lengths will vary depending on personal preference, with a minimum length of three hours.
How much will my project cost?
Organizational Bliss is an experienced, full-time company. We have dedicated many hours to research and education to assure that our clients are receiving the most valuable service available. Rates within the industry vary – ours reflect the length of time we have been in business, our professional association with NAPO, the added client protection of liability insurance and the fact that I am a Certified Professional Organizer®. Our Rates are detailed on our website and packages are available at a discounted rate for larger projects.
What if I am nervous about having a Professional Organizer in my home?
It is a natural feeling anytime you have someone new in your home. Rest assured that Professional Organizers do not look at clutter and feel overwhelmed – we immediately start to problem solve and see the possibility for change! As a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), Organizational Bliss is bound by a Code of Ethics. We respect your right to confidentiality regarding all items and papers we are working with. We are also insured for the protection of our clients and their homes.
What can I expect during our sessions?
Every project is unique, however the first step is almost always sorting and purging so that we can see what we are working with. Once we have established what needs to live in the area and how much space we have to work with, storage options will be considered. I often find that many clients already have useful organizing products that I can reuse and I am a big fan of repurposing! I will make recommendations for containers, organizing tools, space planning, addition of shelving, purchase of storage furniture, etc. as appropriate for the project. Then, we recreate the space. This is where you really get to see the reward of all your hard work! Systems will be put into place according to your individual needs as well as your family’s. We will also discuss tips for long-term maintenance of your organized space.
