What are the first steps? Through our initial phone or Zoom call I will get to know a little bit about you and your home, and which area you would like help with. I will ask you to send some photos of the spaces. This allows me to get the best idea of the space to be prepared and as efficient as possible when organising your home. This also enables me to give a more accurate estimate on how long the service will take. From here, I will email you a proposal, along with terms and conditions and an deposit invoice.
My house is such a mess.... Please do not worry! As a professional organiser it is much job and passion to recreate your home how you want. There is not a space that cannot be decluttered, reworked or redesigned. I provide a compassionate and non judgemental space so you can relax and focus on your priorities and enjoying your home. And please be rest assured all the work we do, and my visit to your home remains confidential. Do I need to purchase more storage? If you want to! However, I will always try to work with what you have initially if you prefer. There will be times we offer guidance and advice when we believe extra storage solutions would be beneficial. Am I required to be there? Ideally yes. The sorting of your items is very personal and unique to you. My services include supporting and offering advice if necessary on decisions that are to be made regarding your belongings from whether to keep or not to keep, or how I think it could be best organised. Being a part of the process benefits you as you will learn how the newly organised space will work, how it will fit into your life, your family's life, and how to sustain the space. However, there are stages during the time I am there, that I can be left to work the magic, if you wish! What are the benefits of engaging a professional organiser? Can't I just do it myself? If you are feeling like you have too much stuff, it can be very easy to feel overwhelmed when organising. Or perhaps you are too busy, with many other priories being juggles. This is where I come in. I help create order where there isn't, calm where there is chaos, and help set up systems to keep the clutter at bay. An organised home is not about having a perfect or minimalist home, it's about surrounding yourself with the things that make you happy, that you enjoy, and that have a function. If everything has a place, its much easier to return to calm next time the chaos takes over! What are the costs? Please take a look at my Services page for pricing. All packages are flexible and can be customised to your needs. A 20% deposit is required to secure the booking and is deducted from the final invoice. Travel time is only charged when over 40kms from the CBD, and is discussed at the time of booking. Should shopping for organisational or storage products be required, payment is required in advance, or a deposit to be paid (amount to be mutually agreed upon). Organisational storage or styling products that are required to complete the editing and styling work purchased on your behalf (with your pre-approval), occurs a 15% administration fee on top of the cost of the products.
What locations do you offer your services? I travel anywhere within South Australia. I am based in the Adelaide Hills and the first 40kms of travel is free.
What will happen to the items I declutter, if any? All packages include the removal of belongings that are no longer needed or wanted. This excludes large bulky items and furniture.
