Here are the questions I am asked most often, together with some answers.  If you have a question that’s not listed, or want an answer which goes in to more detail, please contact me today and I would be happy to have a chat.

When working with me, you can expect a highly qualified, punctual, discreet, non- judgemental, energetic, flexible, positive professional.

I will give you the tools, routines and systems to understand the benefits of being organised, how to be organised and – most importantly – how to stay organised.

I don’t think my job is simply to sort out your stuff or declutter your home.  It’s more about teaching you, making a difference to your lifestyle and changing your approach to organisation.

Work with me and you can expect structured sessions, all booked in advance, clear communication about what will happen at each session and an end of meeting summary informing of progress made and next steps.
At the end of each session payment is taken.  This can be cash, bank transfer or cheque.
Yes.  I can give advice on the design and style of storage solutions.  I have information about a range of storage items suitable for all budgets, functions and locations.

How long will this take? I want everything to look good now!

Time taken will depend on your availability, the amount of clutter in the area concerned and your goals.
Every project is assessed in detail – hence, the need for a paid Initial Consultation to inform the Action Plan.

Here is a very general guide:

Small Project (4 -8 hours)

•    Dining room table
•    Kitchen junk drawer
•    Bulletin/Family notice board
•    Desktop
•    Handbag
•    Linen closet

Medium Project (8- 12 hours)
•    Bedroom wardrobe (not master bedroom)
•    Kitchen cupboards
•    Bathroom cupboards
•    Child’s bedroom
•    Setting up a small paper filing system
•    Kitchen pantry

Large Project (12 -20 hours)

•    Loft
•    Garage
•    Large room
•    Multiple rooms in a home
•    Home office

Real people don’t live in homes that that look like a picture from a glossy magazine.  Being organised is not about having a minimalist environment.

I want you to know where your things are when you need them.  I want you to be calm and happy when you’re in your home.  I want you to enjoy your life.

Once you are in the frame of mind of knowing what you want, it will be clear that some items no longer serve a purpose.   If you want me to be gentle during the removal phase, I will be.  If you want me to be firm and challenge your decisions, I will be.  It’s your home.  It’s your life. Nothing goes if you want it to stay.

You don’t need to be involved in the overall process if you’d prefer to be elsewhere.  However, during the removal stage there will need to be big decisions made about your personal possessions, so it’s useful if you are there or in close contact.
I understand that we all lead busy lives and have family commitments. But when we are working together – specially during the Initial Consultation and the Removal stage – I ask that we have no distractions: no phone calls, small children, pets around the area or other appointments.
Each client and each project are strictly confidential. I will not share your name, address or any personal details with anyone.
I understand that you trust me with your home, possessions and feelings, and I take that responsibility very seriously.
That’s right – you can, but you may not.   Organising is time consuming, boring, lonely and unlikely to work in the long term if it’s not done correctly.

I have the tools and experience to get you organised in less time, with less effort and with longer lasting solutions.  By paying for my time, you get time and peace.

Isn’t it exciting to buy containers? It gives you the impression that you are in control of your clutter – you are the boss!
However, this is the number one mistake that people make when trying to get organised.  They buy containers and then start sorting, despite not knowing the volume or type of items that need to be stored.  What a waste of time and money.

Please do not buy containers before I arrive.  Together we will assess, remove, categorise and then contain.  I can then help you either re-use storage items you already have, or buy something new that suits your budget and taste.

No thanks.  I will come with my trusty step stools, measurement tape, rubber bands, Post-it notes and camera.
