Frequently Asked Questions - A Little Organized - Organizer

Why hire A Little Organized?

There are lots of reasons to hire a professional organizer or a virtual 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 virtual receptionist to take calls, reply to emails, and book appointments?  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 until after we have worked a session together.  

Home and Office Organization:  

You will need to be present during the initial session since you are the one making the final decisions.  I work with you, not for you.  I'm here to guide you through the decluttering and organizing process and I will work with you to find the best solution that works for you.  I am not a house keeper/cleaner.  Decluttering and organizing is not a quick fix, it's a lifestyle change.  It takes multiple sessions to completely purge, declutter and organize an entire home or office.   


1.  Free Phone Consultation:

You may contact me via email or phone to schedule a free 20 minute phone consultation.  Before the phone consultation, you can email photos of the area/project to contact@alittleorganized.com  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 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 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.

I'm ready to get started now!

What type of payments do you accept?

During the consultation we can schedule a session.  I will send you an invoice for you to pay through Paypal.  No personal checks will be accepted.  All appointments must be paid in full before the scheduled date and time.  No refunds will be given for unused hours.   All payments are non-refundable.  

Who all can you help?

I help all types of individuals and small business owners.  These include parents, busy professionals, teachers, seniors downsizing, shopaholics, collectors, relocating families, and more.   

What are your business hours?

Because I'm here to help improve your daily life, I am flexible with my days and times.  Sessions can be scheduled in the morning or afternoon, including weekends upon availability.  

Remotely and virtually, I'm available 7 days a week and times vary upon job types and needs.

What if my city is not listed on the areas served?

Typically I service within 15 miles for a one way trip from downtown Dallas and charge a travel surcharge outside of that area.  The travel charge will apply to each session.  Please contact me for your location.

How far in advance can I book a session?

Sessions can be booked 2 months in advance.  Payment is due before the scheduled appointment. I will send you reminders.  All initial sessions must be used within 60 days of purchase and are non-refundable.  Rescheduling is accepted.
