WELCOME TO ALL SET ORGANIZING!
Following is a quick overview of All Set’s services. Please contact me any time with questions. I look forward to working together soon.
What is a Professional Organizer?
A Professional Organizer provides information, products, assistance and systems to help people get organized in their homes and offices. The goal is to guide, encourage and educate clients about basic principles of organizing by offering support, focus and direction (defined by the National Association of Professional Organizers).
The basic steps of the organizing process:
Get to know you: You fill out the very brief online form telling me basics about you, your habits and your goals. The form is here.
Appointment: Set your first appointment online here.
Organize: In our first session, we tackle what you/we have determined as your priority areas. We will sort and purge items, assign homes to keepers, and set up lasting systems.
Next steps: At the end of the session, we will determine how you would like to continue with the process, e.g. setting weekly scheduled appointments, monthly check-ins, or something else that works best for you.
How much time will it take to organize your space?
It is not possible to give a true time estimate until we have worked together. It depends on the size of your space, your goals, and how quickly you can make decisions. We will work productively and efficiently and, believe it or not, maybe actually enjoy it.
What should you do to prepare?
Nothing! You don’t have to hide things or organize before we get there. That’s why we are coming (the organizing part, not the hiding). All you need to do is be prepared to get to work. All Set's promise: we will not judge you.
Do you need to be there?
Absolutely. All Set is not a cleaning service to tidy up your home. We will be there to help you work through decisions and to set up customized manageable systems. Our purpose is to impart organizing wisdom and habits so that you can maintain the order long term.
Do we bring supplies, containers, etc.? We have basic supplies, like a tape measure and label maker. We do not supply containers, furnishings, hangers, files or any other storage supplies. We will determine what supplies you need during the organizing process and you will be responsible for the purchase of them (we can direct you and help you find what you need online), or for an additional fee, can do the shopping for you.
Will I dump stuff for you?
All Set will not be responsible for removal of trash or donations. We will gladly give you referrals, recommendations and assistance.
