​​​​​​​​​ Phone Call and Schedule In-Home Assessment:


We start with a phone call to talk about your overall needs and determine if we can work well together!  If the synergy between us is there, we then schedule the In-Home Assessment outlined below.  When I arrive, we can sit down together and check in about your immediate organizing goals and find out about your main source of frustration.  What could we change right now that would allow your home to work well for you?  Let's
talk!



In-Home Assessment:


During the assessment, we will walk through your home and talk about the challenges you are facing, and what you would like to change or accomplish with my help. We will figure out:


  • What’s working?
  • What’s not working?
  • What items are essential to you and the space?
  • Why do you really want to get organized? (we need to determine the reason behind the reason so we can keep it that way)
  • What’s causing the problems? (so we can eliminate them entirely)


This will enable us to estimate the number of organizing sessions needed to meet your goals, and a timeline that fits your schedule.

What To Expect

An assessment usually takes 1 - 2 hours. During the assessment, we will do the following:

  1. Walk through your home and talk about your source(s) of frustration.  I will be taking notes during the walk-through.
  2. Identify what you want to accomplish with my help. 
  3. Prioritize if there are multiple areas you would like to address.
  4. Estimate number of sessions needed to reach your goals.
  5. Develop an action plan for your first organizing session.
  6. Most of the time, I encourage you to dive in and get started with me right away. We will most likely start the decluttering process during this first visit! (Should you decide to  book a session at the consult, I can give you some simple tasks to start the process on your own to prepare for our first session)


I take great care to understand your needs and expectations and to clearly define the scope of work before the work begins.

In-Home Assessment Rate: $50 - if you book with me on the spot, this can be applied to your first session! (To schedule an in-home assessment contact Ruma here!. Payment button below for your convenience or in-person.)



Organizing Sessions:


Hands-on organizing sessions, including home-office projects are scheduled in 3-hour time slots (10:00-1:00pm or 2:00-5:00pm or I can accommodate a specific time you prefer). I am always with you for 30 minutes before the session so we can strategize/analyze the situation and 30 minutes after the session to make sure you are at a good stopping point where we can assign "homework" to keep the project moving.

Organizing Session Rates:


$75 – “Pay as we go” hourly rate (if you prefer not to book sessions)
$225 – Per organizing session (4 hours)

$420 – Two organizing sessions booked for same day (8 hours - Savings of $30)
$625 – Four organizing sessions (Spread over two days!! Savings of $215)
