How Much Time Will It Take To Organize?

When I tell people what I do, the first question I always get is “What is a professional organizer?” or “What does a Professional Organizer do?” My industry is relatively new, only being established in 1985. Every day, there are more of us out there so hopefully someday everyone will know exactly what we do and how we can make an impact on their life.

Once I explain to someone what I do, immediately there’s a spark of interest. You see, what comes naturally to us professional organizers, might seem like a daunting or overwhelming task to somebody else. Everyone that I know has that one closet or spare bedroom that they just can’t seem to get around to organizing. For them, it’s something that can be easily ignored by just closing the door. But, it’s always in the back of their mind. Maybe it will even come up as their New Year’s Resolution. “Clean Out and Organize Closet!!!” So, as soon as someone finds out that there are people, like me, out there that organize for a living (and enjoy the heck out of it!), their next question is “How long will it take?”

Professional organizers work usually work at an hourly rate and in blocks of time. The reason for working in blocks of time is because we want to make an impact on whatever area we are working on with you. Most of the time, just an hour is not enough time to sort through, purge and rearrange an area.

How long it takes or how much it will cost really depends on you. The quicker you are able to make decisions about the items we are sorting through, the faster the process will be. Everyone works at a different pace and some areas are tend to be more difficult than others. For example, organizing your linen closet might be simpler and faster than organizing family photos.

The bottom line is that at the end of the day, you will be happy you made the decision to call us. We all need help at some point. Why not let us help you tackle that problem area today so that you can relax and enjoy your home like you were meant to do. Let us be your organizing hero.
