Do I need to clean up my house before my initial consultation?
No! We need to see your personal space as it currently is in order to create the best organizing systems that will work specifically for you.
What happens at the initial consultation?
At the initial consultation, we get a visual of your space. We talk to you about things that are and are not working for you and make recommendations for steps you can take to start the organizing process. We provide a written estimate within 48 hours after your initial consultation.
How long does it take to get organized?
Each project varies in length. It depends on the size of your space, how many items are in your space, how many rooms we are organizing, and your ability to participate in your project. Some spaces can be completed in just a few hours, while other areas will take longer to organize.
How should I prepare for my organizing session?
When you schedule your first organizing session, we provide you with a list of basic supplies to have on hand. We ask that you get a good night’s rest and eat a meal prior to our arrival so you have the energy to be fueled for the entirety of your session. We also encourage you to dress comfortably and have liquids available to help you stay hydrated during your session. To make the best use of our time together, we ask that when you schedule your session, you make sure that it is a time where we can work free from interruptions.
Do I need to be present during my organizing session?
We strongly encourage you to be present and participate throughout the duration of your organizing session in order to ensure we are making changes that support your vision. We also spend the last 30 minutes of your session reviewing changes we have incorporated and discussing next steps to be taken. However, we understand your schedule may not allow you to participate. In this case, we will text or email you a detailed summary of your session.
What if I need to reschedule or cancel?
We understand things happen but do require a 48-hour notice for you to avoid a cancellation fee.
Will my session be confidential?
Yes! Your privacy is a top priority for us. No details about your sessions will be made public to anyone outside of the Life Simplified team.
Will I need to buy a lot of organizing products?
We always start by utilizing products that are currently in your home and incorporate other products as needed. We will only recommend products that work with your budget.
Are you going to make me get rid of all my stuff?
Of course not! We work with you to make the best, most informed decisions based on your interests and lifestyle. We understand sentimental attachments to items and help you create a realistic goal of what to keep and what to pass along. We do not force you to get rid of anything. In the end, the ultimate decision is yours.
What should I do with the stuff I don’t want to keep?
There are many options! If necessary, we will recommend preferred businesses that provide additional services you may need, such as charity donations, estate sales and trash removal. In most cases, we can coordinate these resources for you.
Will you take pictures of my space?
We like to take pictures for training and marketing purposes. You are asked to sign a photo release before your session begins that ensures your privacy will be kept when pictures are taken and used.
