According to Roget's Thesaurus, to "organize" means to "methodize, systematize." "Organization" means "grouping, orderliness, arrangement, structure". Both definitions have nothing to do with being clean or not having stuff, but do emphasize making sense out of the stuff you have.
A professional organizer offers creative ideas, information, structure, solutions and a system that will increase productivity, reduce stress and lead to greater control over time, space and money.
Organizing is an ongoing process of making sense out of what you have and putting things in areas of your home or office that are most logical and convenient so that maintaining these areas will be easy. Things are always coming in and out of your life. Therefore, the key is maintaining these systems and areas, that have been set up, to keep like things together and close to their use.

We have both hourly and daily rates depending on the amount of assistance needed. We bring inexpensive organizing tools with us; many times you already have what's needed.
After 5 hours of uninterrupted time working together, you'll not only feel motivated, but like a huge weight has been lifted off your shoulders.
You'll find the increase in your productivity, as well as the amount of money and time you save by not searching and rebuying is an invaluable investment. Ultimately, the benefits of being organized, feeling less stress and being in control of your environment again are priceless.
It depends upon your needs, desires and capabilities. One day of working together is five hours of uninterrupted time. We work at the pace you are comfortable working at. Remember, organizing is an ongoing process ... it is not a one day project; although our time together may be only one day.
Sometimes we can not keep up with what life has sent our way. Therefore, we offer a maintenance plan should back-sliding occur. In this way, you can regularly expect a visit which may help you keep your space in control or relieve the stress of things piling up when unexpected life occurrences happen.
Part of being organized is realizing and taking action to get things back in the order that makes sense to you. Remember, being organized is not being perfect; rather, it is being in control of your environment so you can find what you want, when you want and need it.
An open mind, uninterrupted time to work together and the desire to maintain the system we help you set up. By working together, to organize your space, we are creating a system that specifically meets your needs. This also will help you maintain the systems and solutions we set up, since they will make sense as to how you operate in your environment. We can work out a plan (what we call "homework") for other areas of concern we feel confident you can accomplish without our assistance. Together, we break down the balance of your projects into manageable increments of time.
