What do your services cost?
What can you help me with?
I specialize in decluttering and organizing all areas of the home including home offices, mail, basements, kitchens, garages, closets, and clothing.
I also specialize in organizing commercial space including: filing, storage rooms, and staff areas.
Do you work alone or can we work together?
Clients are welcome to join me for as much or as little of the organizing process as they choose to be involved in. Most clients prefer to have me perform the sorting process alone, and join me when it comes time to make decisions about what to keep, donate, or toss. Once the decisions making process is over, most clients step away and leave me to create their storage solution.
I have a lot of items that are sentimental to me. Will you throw them away?

I am downsizing. How can you help me?
Many people get overwhelmed at the very thought of moving to a smaller home because they have accumulated so much stuff over time and worry about making tough decisions to part with the majority of their possessions. I help clients prepare for a successful downsize by working with them 1-on-1 systematically reviewing their possessions, guiding them through the decision-making process of what to keep, donate, toss or sell.
