“They are patient, efficient, and give direction gently, yet boldly! You will feel incredible when they walk away from the job with bags full of trash, recyclables, and donations.”

We have a 3 hour minimum for all organizing sessions. And, sometimes it happens that you can’t be around when we are unpacking your boxes; or organizing your closet, or another area. That is okay.
We can still help!
Please know WE NEED YOUR INPUT in order to meet your expectations. But we can use pictures, phones, and lists to convey those expectations.
It is best if you are present for our sessions. At a minimum, please plan to spend 10-15 minutes at the beginning and 30-60 minutes at the end with us (even if it’s a video call).
We will talk more about your situation on a phone call. Hopefully, when we are done, you will have more timebecause your home will be more organized.

Our organizers are not interested in making you feel shame or embarrassment about your situation.
Yes, we have worked on some bad cases of clutter and neglect. But, we are here to help you and that will never include judgment or negativity.
As the owner of the company, my #1 priority is your happiness with our service. I will call you on the phone to get your feedback after the session, and I will fix anything you want fixed. This is a no-risk decision for you.
Our typical appointment is 4 hours long. All organizing sessions have a 3 hour minimum.

The number of professional organizers you hire is completely up to you. Some people feel more comfortable working one on one. For many projects we will recommend involving 2 organizers in order to save you time and money.

Because we work by the hour, it’s important to prioritize each session. If left on our own, we move very quickly, carefully, and efficiently.
How fast things progress depends primarily on how quickly you can make decisions about your stuff. An organizer will work together with you (sometimes on parallel mini-projects, sometimes on the same thing) to thin out, sort, re-purpose and generally organize your things.
Getting organized is a process and our visits are more like working with a personal trainer than a stressful one-time workout. Most clients have us back on a semi-regular basis to stay on track or to catch back up.
Taking care of the precious Earth is a big priority for Get Organized Already! We take household hazardous waste to monthly drop off events. We recycle/reuse your boxes and packing materials. And we take all donations to local, second-hand stores for you.
Sometimes the stress of wasting and disposing of things properly can keep you from letting go of items. We believe you deserve a peaceful home full of only things you love! Family and friends with good intentions may give you hand-me-downs and gifts you don’t want. That doesn’t mean they have to live in your home forever.
“I love that Nonnahs will find places to re-use, recycle and reinvent what I don’t want. She takes away e-waste, donation items, and pretty much anything that doesn’t have to –or shouldn’t– end up in a landfill. It is easier to let go when you don’t have to feel so guilty about throwing things out.”
-Monette M, actor, Pasadena
This is exactly why an organizer is miraculous! We make the process so much faster and easier.
I promise you will keep everything you love and love everything you keep.
note: If it feels physically painful to you to let go of your things, you may have the hoarding disorder and be well served to seek a behavioral psychologist. Here is a good place to start: ADAA
All of our professional organizers are trained people of integrity. Our standards are high.
I will provide you with a written and freshly signed Non-Disclosure Agreement before we start any project. It goes against our principles to violate the gift of your trust. Per this NDA, we aren’t allowed to tell your neighbors, or our neighbors (or anyone else for that matter!) what we see or find at your house.
For more warm-tummy assurance about trusting us please see the Code of Ethics on NAPO’s website. (NAPO is the National Association of Pro Organizers. I am an established member of this association.) Also, check out all of our testimonials here.
We arrive in discreet cars and (unless we are organizing the garage in full view) the neighbors will have to try very hard to figure out who we are!
