Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Professional Home Organizer?  

Professional Home Organizers are people who offers real solutions for real people, emphasizing simplicity and ease in their approach to organizing challenges both large and small. They help their clients create personalized systems to bring order to their homes and lives.

Why hire a Professional Home Organizer?

Professional Home Organizers not only help you organize your spaces, they also create easy-to-follow systems to help keep it that way. They are there to help you through the entire process or to get “down and dirty” and do everything themselves. They are there to sort, clean, purge, file, and de-clutter to help make your home a better place to live.

What are the benefits of getting organized?

EVERYTHING! You will find yourself having more time, feeling less stressed, you will know where everything is located (which saves time and huge headaches), it will make your life easier, and, more importantly, happier. Your environment plays a huge part in your attitude, outlook, and even your blood pressure level. It makes life so much simpler when your environment is organized and clean.

Why did Simply Organized choose a team approach with 2 organizers instead of single organizer?

The benefit of working as a team is obviously, you can get projects done in half the time but more importantly, the team approach allows for a collaborative style encouraging input and creativity (2 heads are better than one). The owner personally performs every “Complimentary” consultations with the client to understand their needs, requirements and to take pictures of their problem areas. Our organizers review the pictures and discuss the clients needs and we develop the best plan of action so when we get to the clients house we can “hit the ground running”.

Which areas do you service?

We will tackle just about any area in your home including the (ever dreaded) garage! No job is too big or too small.

Will you work with me, do it for me or just coach me?

It’s entirely up to you. If you don’t want to touch a thing, you don’t have to. But, if you or anyone else wants to help, it’ll get the job done faster, and in the end, save you money.

How do I get started?

Simply contact us here and tell us what needs to be addressed, what rooms/areas you’d like organized, and any other details you’d like to include. We will then get back to you promptly to set up a time for our initial meeting.

What takes place at the initial meeting?

We will come to your home and evaluate the space(s) as-is and formulate a plan of action. Then, we will discuss what problems you have with the space(s), what you would like to see change, and what is currently working for you.

Will you be flexible and able to work around my schedule?

Absolutely! We’re here to work with you and your schedule.

Will my sessions be confidential?

Completely! All meetings, conversations, and questions are between you and us, and no one else. To see other guidelines we stand by, please read the bottom section of our About Us page.

What are your rates?

Please see the Services & Rates page for details.

What if I only need you for a few hours?

That’s perfectly fine!

What payments are accepted?

We accept cash and checks. Payment is due at the end of each work session (each day).

What do I need to do before the organizing session?

Absolutely nothing! Clients always think they have to “pick up their space” before we come to organize. That is not necessary. It’s actually beneficial for us to see the space “as is” so we can see what’s working and what needs to change in your space. Don’t worry, we have seen all kinds of spaces and we are here to help alleviate the “embarrassment factor”.

What will happen during the organizing session?

We will work together to address your organizing challenges and the best use of your space(s). We will then sort items and put them in a system that works best for you and the space. Every client and every space is different, which is why it’s important that the system fits your needs.

Do I need to buy organizing products?

No, Not necessarily. We will make the most of the organizing items you already own. Based on your specific project, we may make suggestions for baskets, shelving, containers, or other organizing tools that we believe would add greater value to your space if used. You’re welcome to purchase these items yourself, we can purchase them for you, or you can choose to use something else– it’s completely up to you. We will be glad to purchase organizers ahead of time for your particular space with advance payment. Any supplies we bring to the project may be purchased if desired and payment is due the day of service. 

Do you help people who are moving or recently moved?

Yes, we love to help people who are in the moving process! Getting organized before you move will help your house look better for showings, may help your home sell faster, and will save you the time and expense of moving unneeded and unnecessary items to your new location. Who wouldn’t want that?! If you have recently moved and still have unpacked boxes, we would love the opportunity to help you set up your new space. There’s nothing better than having an organized home right from the start.

Will I have to throw things away?

Not necessarily. We will work together as a team to determine which items remain in your space. Items may be donated, recycled, sold, consigned, given away, thrown away, or organized in your space.
