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.

  • Have you made a list of all the organizing tools & supplies you still need to finish the project?
  • Are your space measurements correct to accommodate the storage resources you need to purchase?
  • Did you suddenly realize that you need a contractor to help clean, fix or repair something in your home before you can finish the project?
  • Can you clearly define what is required for a contractor so that you can obtain a fast quotation to get the service completed?
  • Who can physically help you sort, move and relocate smaller physical items?
  • Who can help you install equipment or furniture to the space?
  • Who can help you with moving the larger physical items around your space?
  • What items no longer needed or wanted in your home can you recycle?
  • What items no longer needed or wanted in your home can you discard in the trash?
  • What items no longer needed or wanted in your home can you donate to a worthy local shelter, thrift store or consign/sell?

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 With You

This service might just be what you need right now to finish your project. With this service, we would meet with you to discuss your goals and desires to finish the project. We would work with you to help you with:

  • Creating a comprehensive organizing plan
  • Identify specific resources you need to complete your project
  • Source and purchase resources for you
  • Work with you in your space to install or implement resources to help you finish your project
  • Develop and manage a contractor service plan for you to quickly get the tough tasks completed

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.
