2. What do your services cost?

A.

Organizing services are $70 per hour with no minimum booking. For clients in Pickering, Ajax, Whitby and Oshawa, I offer a free consultation at your home or business prior to starting any work. The time it takes to organize a space varies depending on the size of the space, the volume of stuff, and your own ability to make decisions about what to keep and let go of. Payment is due at the end of each day via cash or eTransfer.

3. I've never hired a Professional Organizer before. What can I expect?

A.

The organizing process involves sorting through your items one by one, and deciding what to keep, donate, sell or recycle. You can be as hands on or off as you would like, but I need you home during each session, so that you're available to make decisions and answer questions periodically.

In a typical session the first hour or so is spent sorting everything in the space into categories, so that we can get a sense of the volume and type of stuff you have. Then I'll walk you through each category and we'll discuss what you would like to keep, donate, throw away, or recycle. I will never throw away anything without your permission. We'll repeat this process until the entire space is complete. Once we know which items you're keeping, I'll create a plan to better store them so that they're easy for you to access and put away. I will sort everything into labelled containers, and place everything back on shelves, in cupboards or in closets.

4. Will I need to buy bins or an expensive closet organizer?

A.

I am a big fan of reusing and repurposing your own containers and shelving whenever possible. Should we determine that you require bins or shelving I will always suggest low cost options first, for example, storage bins from the Dollar store or Walmart, or shelving units from a big box store. If you are interested in buying specific products or systems, I can research and make recommendations for you.

5. Where are your located? What areas do you serve?

A.

I am located in Ajax, Ontario. I work in Durham Region and metro Toronto. If you live outside this area you can search for a local Professional Organizer at http://www.organizersincanada.com/index.html
