Do you need an organized office so you can focus on growing your business?

Even if you are just ready to enjoy your home, getting organized is the first thing you must do to make your home beautiful and your life less stressful.

Together we will focus in on what needs to be organized, packed, donated, recycled, and tossed. I work with you step by step, in a systematic non-judgmental way, so your home is organized quickly, efficiently, and beautifully!

You choose how involved you want to be with the organizing process. Do you prefer to work together side by side? Many people enjoy working together. It is very efficient and easier to keep focused, when you are not doing it alone.

Or do you prefer to be virtual and get organized over the phone and zoom? We can do that!

Do you just want it done? I can do everything for you, including shopping for organizational products and dropping off donations. Of-course nothing is thrown out or donated without your agreement. I work closely with you by text, phone, and email, throughout the entire project.

Although each home or office organizing project is unique,

I have listed some packages that will give you a good idea of how to I can help and basic pricing.

Home and Office Organizing

Are you ready to tackle organizing your home in a big way?

Are you frustrated by things you want to keep but have no place to put them? Do you feel that you are always wasting your time trying to find things?

Get organizing done!

Most projects typically do take at least one day to achieve. One day to us means up to around seven and a half hours, give or take plus travel time. If you have needs that would be achieved with weekly support or smaller time frames, we can discuss that but we typically like to come out for one day at a time… or if the project is larger, we will give you an estimate for how many days it’s expected to take.

How much does it cost?

We take a deposit at the time of booking your appointment and then final payment is due upon completion. Typically we charge around $1,000/day and that includes travel within a 2 hour radius of the San Francisco bay area (CA).  Depending on your project, needs, location, and resources needed, we can negotiate with you to find what works for you and your budget. (Any decided upon materials and organizational/storage products brought in would be billed separately. Time spent for shopping for those resources is part of our daily hours.)

A full day of organizing is just right for organizing specific areas such as a kitchen, small basement, bedroom, or a walk-in closet. When you typically need multiple days is for projects such as redoing the whole house, a big move in and unpacking job, a move out and packing up the whole house job, a vacation house reorganization, or a whole garage.

Whether you book ONE day or Multiple days of in-person or virtual organizing, the following is what you will get and what we will do for you or “With you”:

We will:

  • Focus on your needs, organizing challenges, and areas of your home or office that are not working for you
  • Identify additional storage areas and how existing storage areas can be better utilized
  • Create a personalized strategic plan of where to start, and what needs to be done and by when
  • Sort through the unworking, unneeded, and unwanted
  • Make recommendations of storage products and systems including filing systems
  • Shop for organizational and storage products
  • Take care of all donation, recycle, e-waste and consignment drop off for you if needed and requested

We ask you to:

  • Take and send photos and videos of your project/room before initial consult so we can have a very detailed account of what you need
  • Spend some time thinking about how you would like to “see and use” your space – our goal is make your home or office space beautiful and functional
  • Be prepared to make decisions efficiently about your space, items needed and not needed
  • Be open to scheduling a phone call to follow up after the work has been completed to see how it’s working for you! (and to get a glowing review)
