What’s the benefit of hiring Time 4 Organizing ?
Benefits of being organized go beyond a neat and tidy home. When you feel stressed by your mess, we’ll work with you to help you decide what to let go of for sale, consignment, donation or hauling. We will then carefully re-organize what you love, use and need back into your existing storage or recommend new storage solutions if appropriate. You will experience less stress, more time to do what’s important to you.We help clients from all walks of life, from busy professionals, families, seniors downsizing, to homeowners moving to a new house, going thru life transitions, new baby, divorce etc.
Which areas of my house can you organize?
I will organize almost any area of your home. Some examples are Kitchens, Closets, Pantries, Bedrooms etc. For a more detailed list please see my SERVICES page.
What locations do you serve?
I am based out of Powell, OH and provide services in the Columbus area as well as all surrounding towns and cities such as Dublin, Worthington, Hilliard, Lewis Center, Upper Arlington, Westerville etc. I will drive up to 45 min each way at no added cost to my clients.
Do I have to prepare before your consultation?
No. Please do not run around picking up or cleaning your home for me. I want to see the real issues you are dealing with so I can help you better. No judgment here. Organizing is what I do and I am here to help you!
Do I have to be home for the organizing session?
Yes, especially in the first couple sessions. I prefer to work alongside my clients. Generally the process is faster when the homeowner is present to help with the decision-making during the editing phase and hands on help. However I can certainly work on my own in certain occasions and keep in touch with you virtually throughout the session or leave “homework” to do after you get home.
How do I prepare for an organizing session?
I always advise my clients to get a good night’s rest, eat breakfast or lunch and dress casually. It is also advisable to keep YOUR distractions to a minimum. This means preferably no visitors, calls, work, errands etc. Some clients prefer to arrange childcare for the kids in order to maximize the impact of our work session together. How fast or how slow we go is completely up to you.
Do I have to buy anything before our session?
Not necessarily. Usually we’ll go through your home first to see if we can use items you already have. Organizing does not have to cost a lot. I strongly advise decluttering and sorting first and then we can decide which containers or systems are best suited for the space.
Do you make the purchases?
You can do the shopping on your own based on my product recommendations or I can do it all for you. I offer a $25/hr shopping assistance fee to be paid at the end of each session. No mark up on the products purchased, you simply reimburse me based on the receipts.
How much does it cost?
Please see the Services page for a description of my rates and more information.
How long will it take?
The answer to this is as variable as the types of projects and situations. It depends on what your goals are for the space, how cluttered it is, how distracted you are during our sessions, how fast you make decisions and move thru the process. Although I do not provide hard quotes, I will do my best to give you an idea of during the consultation visit.
How long is a session?
Typically 3-4 hours. I have usually found that anything under 2-3 hrs does not yield the tangible results to make enough of a difference. I will certainly accommodate special requests and maintenance sessions.
Will my session be confidential?
Absolutely! I stand by the NAPO code of ethics and your information will be regarded with the outmost confidentiality.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, check and credit cards are accepted. Payment is expected at the end of each session.
How do I get started?
Simply contact me here for a FREE In Home Consultation. Let me know what areas you’d like organized and any other details you think would be helpful. I will then get back with you and we can set up a time for our initial meeting. For more information regarding the process, visit the Services page.
