Get Unstuck & Back To Organizing
It's discouraging to be right in the middle of a home organizing project and find your momentum has stalled out. This can happen for several reasons. The good news is that while you may feel stuck right now, this just means it's time to take a break and regroup.
Now is the time to figure out where the project is stuck at. It may help if you start by asking these questions before you continue.
The above list of local resources might help you get back on your feet and into your project. If you cannot find something or someone on the list, please complete the Contact Form at the bottom of this page so we can help point you in the right direction.
EXPERT TIP: A gold standard in professional organizing is to deal with today first, then tomorrow and maybe yesterday.
It's Okay To Ask For Help
We find that many of our clients start out strong with a do it yourself home organizing project. You have the best intentions along with a solid plan. You invested in the best tools and resources to get the project done.
You booked off time from work and other commitments to work on completing the project. Now you find yourself stuck because you have either run out of time, or you need a few ideas about how to overcome a surprise obstacle.
Would you like two additional home organizing options that can assist you in bringing your project to completion?

Done For You
Most of our clients have a clear vision for their space. You know that you can live in a beautiful and well organized space that allows you to breath and smile each day.
You might be a great candidate for the done for you service if you:
- Started a project but for some reason, you cannot finish the project yourself.
- You have a clear idea about what needs to be done, but you don't have the time, energy or ability to get started and finished.
If you said yes to the above, the done for you service is the right approach to investigate next.
Your next step is to contact us to setup an initial phone consultation. We will then arrange a complimentary 30-minute, in-home assessment so that we can meet with you to view your space. This will give us a great chance to capture your vision and understand your project timeline, budget and goals.
After the assessment is complete, we will provide you with information on our packages or a written quotation and any other relevant details you need to choose us for your project.
