For your convenience, here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions:

Who Needs an Organizer?

People hire organizers for many reasons.  Some have a hard time keeping clutter under control in their homes or offices.  Others want a fresh perspective to guide them in transforming their surroundings.  Some folks are in the midst of a crisis, or a difficult or joyous transition.  There are people in the process of moving themselves or a loved one into a new home, and others who just want to rid themselves of clutter and simplify their lives.

What Kind of Clients Have You Worked With?

Some of our clients have included busy moms with children, seniors on their own, small business owners, young professionals, artists and musicians, therapists and doctors, families caught in the unexpected care of elderly relatives, individuals facing illness, and persons challenged by ADD.

What Is the Process?

We will talk about your needs on the phone, make sure A Room of One's Own is a good match for those needs, then set up a time to meet and begin the work.  You do not need to tidy up before a visit.   Depending on the scale of the job, we may only need to meet for a few hours, or schedule further blocks of time to complete the task.

How Long Does It Take to Finish a Job?

It depends on the complexity of the job and how easy or difficult it is for the client to make decisions as we declutter/organize the space.   A block of time is set up for the first meeting to assess the job and make good headway on it.  One or more follow-up visits may be needed to finish, though sometimes clients can see their way clear to continue on their own.  For stubborn or chronic organizing issues, standing appointments can be scheduled to keep things under control.

Do You Have a Specialty?

Paper clutter is a particular specialty, but we are ready for most any kind of clutter challenge.

Will You Make Me Throw Things Away?

Although the effectiveness of some organizing jobs can depend on whether a person is able to let some items go, we never force anyone to throw things away.  The organizing process is always under the client's control.

How Are You Paid?

We charge by the hour and payment is due at the end of each session.

What Is Your Cancellation Policy?

Twenty-four hours notice is required, otherwise clients are charged for the missed session.
