How do we start? What is the process?

Why should I hire a Professional Organizer/Photo Organizer?

As a professional organizer, I will help you get over the obstacles of getting organized. Our disorganization causes us stress and we don’t know where or how to start. I gently guide you through the process, so you are not overwhelmed. We lead busy lives, sometimes you need that extra hand to get it finally done.

Do I have to work with you?

We understand you are busy with work and family. This is one of the obstacles of not getting organized! We don’t have the time. It does go faster if you are present, and we would like to pass on skills so you will stay organized.

If you are downsizing and purging items, it would be helpful if you were there, unless you give specific instructions on what to keep and what to let go of. If you already purged and only need organizing of items you already have you can trust us to organize without you present.

I have anxiety of letting go of my photos and scrapbooks, can you scan them in my home?

We understand your anxiety. We assure you, we treat your photos like our own! We work as efficiently as possible to get your photos returned to you in timely matter, so they are back safely in your hands.

Our scanners are portable. If you prefer, scanning can be done in your home.
