Why should I hire a professional organizer?

Getting organized is more than buying containers or finding the perfect app. It is about changing the way you approach the things in your life. Organizing skills can be developed. A professional organizer uses organizing principles and systems to help clients manage their home or office, and teaches effective strategies and processes so clients can stay organized. If you’ve tried to get your home or office under control but haven’t been able to keep it up, contact That's Neat! Organizing™ today.

How do I work with That’s Neat! Organizing?

The first step is to contact us for a free phone consultation so we can learn more about your specific area of need. Next we’ll schedule the initial in-home session to discuss your project in more detail, set a plan, and start organizing. Then through ongoing hands-on organizing sessions, phone coaching, or a combination of services, we will work with you to complete the project.

How much does it cost? What's included?

We charge an hourly rate with a 2-hour minimum session time. For larger projects like preparing for a move, we can create a plan with budget estimates and costs. Contact That’s Neat! Organizing for a phone consultation and more information on your specific organizing needs.

All services include:

  • Free initial phone consultation 
  • Tip sheets and resource suggestions specific to your organizing project
  • Referrals to local professionals and services as needed
  • Subscription to The Neat Sheet e-newsletter
  • Ongoing email support: I love to hear your wins and help you meet your challenges!

Do I need to buy anything before we start?

No, please don’t buy a lot of supplies ahead of time. For most projects it's helpful to have some boxes for sorting, paper bags for recycling, and plastic bags for items to be donated. That’s Neat! Organizing can often use existing containers and other items in your home as part of the organizing solution. As you work with That’s Neat! Organizing, we can create a shopping list for additional supplies needed to complete the project.
