"A year from now you may wish you had started today."
We begin our journey with a phone conversation to make an appointment to meet together in the space that you are wanting to address for an obligation free, 30 minute Needs Assessment. During the appointment we will walk through the spaces that are of concern. This conversation is the beginning of building a relationship, which is fundamental to a successful outcome for you.
During this tour, we will talk about your lifestyle and how it relates to what you are needing help with. We will talk about what is and isn't working for you, and what your vision is for the space. I will take notes and begin to come up with a plan of how we can address your needs. I will ask you what success "looks like" for you, paying particular consideration to your lifestyle, budget and timeline.
In order to make changes to a space and help you develop new organising habits, I need to understand the history of the space and see your organising challenges in real life. So please don't tidy up before I come over. I want to see your space as it is functioning at the time, so we can develop systems that will result in your success.
Budget is always a big factor, and because every client has different needs, I can't give you exact time quotes. The amount of time a task takes depends on several things:
The number of items in a space. The more stuff in a room, the longer it takes to to sort and declutter
The extent of the work you wish to be done. A basic declutter is faster than a job that entails new containers, labelling or having to make space in another area of the house first, so the items can be stored elsewhere, for example.
How quickly you can make decisions.
Your readiness to let go of items that you don't use, need or love.
Your flexibility to try new strategies
