Why Do You Offer Emergency Preparedness Services?
By working with families on a frequent basis, it has become apparent that most people just aren't prepared for the worst.  If you are not prepared for the unplanned, no matter how organized you are, there can be terrible consequences.  

We have partnered with some awesome companies that specialize in providing everything you need to be prepared.  We can also work with you to develop a written emergency plan your family can refer to if necessary.   Emergency preparedness is very important.

Why Does A Professional Organizer Charge More Than A Maid Service?
•  A maid service will simply do their best to clean up after you without regard to rectifying the problem.  They will have to return again and again to provide the same services because disorganization and clutter continually create more work for them.  You can imagine how these costs add up.  

•  A Professional Organizer will cost more initially, however, you will learn to remove the bad habits and become more efficient.  The  clutter management coaching and organizing systems will help you to stay organized which reduces the need for continual services.

•  The increased success you can achieve by becoming more organized makes it worth the initial time and cost alone.

•  A professional organizer must provide services beyond just organizing to be truly effective.  These services are commonly associated with a variety of fields such as life coaching, counseling, project management, and/or interior design.

Will You Book Other Related Services As Well?
We have teamed up with a variety of companies to make the process easier for you.  From deep cleaning services to custom closet companies, handyman services to junk haulers.  We will work with you to book any services which we are not equipped to handle.
