Before The Home Edit and Marie Kondo, did you know that professional organizing was a thing? I didn't!
As a kid, I remember putting all my art supplies in color order, and organizing my mom's sewing thread was always my favorite. When packing for a trip, I’ve got my list that I check twice. I have been organizing myself, my home, and my family for as long as I can remember, but I never knew it was a service!
Today I’m covering the top FAQs I get about what it’s like to work with a home organizer. Take a look…
1. How do I know if I need a home organizer?
Do you feel overwhelmed in your home? Is the answer YES? 95% of the time, this overwhelm comes from two places:
A need for systems and processes.
Too. Much. Stuff.
A Professional Organizer can help bring you back to basics by encouraging you to purge what you really don't need (or even want) and find homes and routines for the things you DO! Here are 3 things you invest in when you hire an organizer.
2. How long does a project take?
Projects vary greatly in the amount of time they take. For example, a simple purge session with us can be as short as 3 hours, while some large unpack + organize jobs can take the better part of a week.
One of the great things about OfC is that we operate under a luxury boutique model— so we customize each project for your specific needs. Each project gets its own plan of action and list of products to ensure perfection in your finished space.
3. How much do professional organizers charge for their services?
This varies widely as well. It's unrealistic to state what others charge, but OfC is on the upper end of the pricing threshold.
We base our pricing on numerous things, the first of which is the experience we create. We hire only the most trustworthy, empathetic, efficient, and hilarious organizers here at OfC. If I wouldn't trust an applicant with my personal belongings, they won't be handling yours!
Part of our pricing model directly influences YOU. You contact us because you want a change. Our rates reflect your buy in! We want you to be 100% committed to the process so you can see the results of your investment.
4. What can a home organizer help me with?
Organizers are good for so many things! When you think of organizers, you probably think of pantries and closets. But we also rock at mud rooms, bathrooms, laundry rooms, play rooms, kids rooms, craft rooms, fridges, garages, pack jobs (did you know we can pack most homes in ONE DAY?), and help you set up systems so your home runs like a well-oiled machine!
