What’s the benefit of hiring Time 4 Organizing?
Benefits of working with your Professional Home Organizer go beyond a neat and tidy home. You will experience less stress, more time to do what’s important to you. I 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. My absolute favorites are Kitchens, Closets, and Pantries.
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 30 min each way at NO added cost to my clients. Some charges will apply for locations outside of this area.
Do I have to prepare for 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, I prefer to work alongside my clients especially if you are a new client. I need you to help with decision-making during the editing/purging phase. For long term or established clients, I can work on my own or with my team without you being present if you choose so.
How do I prepare for an organizing session?
I always advise you to get a good night’s rest, eat breakfast or lunch and dress casually. Please keep YOUR distractions to a minimum. This means preferably no visitors, calls, work, errands etc. Some clients 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. We’ll declutter and sort first and then we can decide which containers or systems are best suited for the space.
Do you make the purchases?
Yes, my rates are all-inclusive. You can do the shopping on your own based on my product recommendations or I can make the purchases for you. No mark up on the products, you simply reimburse me based on the receipts.
Do you work by yourself or have a team?
I do both. We have the option of working one on one together or I can bring one or more assistants with me to help out. A lot depends on the size of the project, timeline, your wishes, budget etc.
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. Some loose examples, a pantry is anywhere from 2 hours for a small one to 6 hours for bigger ones with lots of labels and bins (one organizer with the client). A walk-ink in closet takes generally 2 sessions (one organizer with client). Although I do not provide hard quotes, I will do my best to give you a range during the consultation visit.
How long is a session?
Minimum 3 hours, typically 3-6 hours. 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 utmost confidentiality.
