FAQs

  • Introduction

    Busy lives can cause clutter and disorder to quickly and steadily build up in our homes. Before long, there's a mess that isn't easily tackled and can seem overwhelming. Hiring a professional home organizer may be the best way to remove this chaos and improve your lifestyle at home. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about home organizers, including what they can help you with and what to expect if you hire one.

  • What are some methods to organize a home office?

    Tidy the desktop by using document trays, pen and pencil holders, and a mobile phone holder. Computer monitor stands assist with a neat and organized look. Tackle office storage with bookshelves or open shelving to hold reference materials and display items. Finish off with a small filing or stationery cabinet.

  • What are some methods to organize documents at home?

    Decide on a logical category structure for documents that you need to keep, such as bills, medical records, tax filings, property deeds, and personal documents. Then, group items by date, place them into labeled manila folders, and store them appropriately in a container or cabinet.

  • What are some tips to declutter daily, so the mess doesn\'t pile up?

    Tackle clutter every day by setting a timer for a short period, such as 15 minutes, and then, jump headlong into clearing a trouble spot. Another way is to make a priority list of decluttering jobs and complete one each day.

  • What are some tips to organize your home on a budget?

    A cheap, easy way to improve home organization is to buy inexpensive over-the-door hooks, adhesive strip hooks, or hook strips. Then, put them around the house for hanging coats, dressing gowns, hats, keys, or any frequently used items. A low-cost coat and hat rack with an umbrella stand placed strategically can be invaluable.

  • How much do home organizers charge?

    According to the project hiring site HomeAdvisor, professional home organizers have an average cost of $482. At a lower skill level, a home organizer may cost $255. In contrast, highly skilled self-employed individuals or agency-employed organizers cost closer to $760.

  • What does a home organizing session look like?

    Most home organizing jobs take between two  and 10 hours. Methods vary, but many organizers use a sorting method (keep, donate, trash) for clothing and other items. First, saved items are sorted into categories to determine access and display modes. Finally, the items are placed into specified storage containers or shelving in a precise manner.
