Frequently Asked Questions - A Little Organized - Organizer

Why hire A Little Organized?

There are lots of reasons to hire a professional organizer or an executive personal assistant.  Are you moving or just moved?  Have a new baby on the way or just wanting to downsize?   Are the piles of paperwork getting larger?  Has the extra bedroom turned into a storage room?  Overwhelmed with clutter and can't find anything?  Does your business need a little help with administrative duties?  Do you have too much on your plate and don't know where to start or keep track?

I will help you find a good starting point to declutter and get organized and keep you focused and productive to make it easier to accomplish your goal.  I understand how busy life gets and I am here to help you in the best way possible, not to judge.  I will work one on one with you to find the best solution that works for you.  There is no one way or method to get organized.  What works for someone else may not work for you.  Organizing is not a quick fix, it's a lifestyle change.  Your confidentiality is important to me, and will not be shared with anyone.  I follow the NAPO Code of Ethics.

How much will an organizing project cost and what is the process?

Each project is different and has many variables, so there is no way to find out the exact time and cost.  The total cost and length of time depends on many things such as the overall amount of clutter and distractions, your personal attachment, your personal ability to make quick decisions, and how much you want me involved in the process.  Additional charges will be discussed if applicable.  All payments are non-refundable.   

Each project is customized around your budget, needs, and desired level of participation, therefore, I'm unable to give a specific estimate on the total project until after we have worked a session together.  I'm here to guide you through the decluttering and organizing process.  I am not a house keeper/cleaner.   It takes multiple sessions to completely purge, declutter and organize an entire home or office.    

1.  Free Phone Consultation:

Please contact me via email or phone to schedule a free 20 minute phone consultation.  You may email photos of the area/project if you would like to  During the phone consultation, we will discuss your goals, realistic expectations, my services, and my rates.  If you are ready to take the next step, we will then schedule the initial 3 hour session, and/or session packages.

2.  Before the initial Organizing Session:

You will need to eliminate distractions to make the most of our time.   Arrange childcare, pet care, work, visitors, and calls before the session.  There is no need to pre-organize.   Don't buy products until after we have completed the session and discuss storage solutions.  Have trash bags available for trash and donations.

3.  Initial Organizing Session:

I will assess the area and discuss the space.  Then, I dig right in alongside you the entire time, offering suggestions and tips.  At the end of the session, we will discuss estimated project time frame, cost, products, and next steps.  I will collect small donations and drop off or you can schedule a donation pickup with a local center.

What type of payments do you accept?

All payments must be paid in full BEFORE the session begins and a Service Agreement must be signed.  

Credit or Debit Cards are accepted through PayPal at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled session and will be charged a $5 processing fee.  Cash is accepted at the beginning of a session.  

No refunds will be given for unused hours.   All payments are non-refundable.  

What cities do you service?

Typically I service within 20 miles one way trip from downtown Dallas.  I will gladly service outside of this area for an additional travel surcharge that will be applied to each round trip session.  

Long distant projects (over 2 hour drive one way) will be charged additional fees for over-night stays.

Please contact me for a travel surcharge estimate in your location.
