FAQs of Working with a Professional Organizer

These are some of the most asked questions about working with a professional organizer. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact us directly!

How involved do I need to be throughout the process?2021-02-01T12:19:27-05:00

You can be as involved as you prefer! The most involvement your organizer will need from you is during the sorting & purging process. Once that process is completed, your organizer can do the work with little to no involvement from you, unless you would like to to be a part of the entire process.

Is there any pre-work or preparation I should do before my organizer arrives?2021-02-01T12:14:48-05:00

No! You don’t have to do a thing :)

Will I be able to keep the system in place? How can I maintain the organized space?2023-03-09T17:04:48-05:00

Our services go beyond organizing the physical items. We take the time to develop personalized strategies & systems that will work for you and your family long-term. Our goal at the end of the project is to leave you with a beautifully organized space that you can maintain on your own.

If you are too busy to maintain the space on your own, or would like us to come in to refresh the space, we offer maintenance plans!

Will the final result fit the look and style of my home?2021-02-01T12:14:47-05:00

Aesthetics are an important detail! However, “Pinterest-perfect” expectations can be unrealistic unless you have an unlimited budget for product. Our organizers will do their absolute best to match your homes look & style, however our #1 priority is to create a space that is functional & maintainable.

I need organization help for my college student/elderly parents/vacation home/Christmas décor/photos and files etc…? Can you help?2021-02-01T12:14:46-05:00

Yes!! We’d be honored to. We also have organizers who hold Specialist Certificates in Chronic Disorganization, ADD/ADHD, Aging & Hoarding.

Can I leave my organizer a review?2021-02-01T12:14:46-05:00

Please do! Word of mouth and outstanding reviews are a great way for us to continue doing what we love for others. Here is a direct link to our Google Review page:

What if I need to reschedule my appointment?2021-02-01T12:14:46-05:00

You can call our office or contact your organizer anytime, if you are needing to reschedule your appointment. We ask that you reach out within 48-hour prior to your scheduled appointment, if you are needing to make any changes to the time/day.

How many organizers will come to my home? Can I request more than one for larger projects?2021-02-01T13:19:43-05:00

For most projects, only one organizer is needed. However, on larger scale projects we usually suggest adding additional organizers from our team to help. Our organizer is happy to go in detail about this, and whether more will be needed, during the time of your initial 1-hour consultation. You are always welcome to request more organizers for your project at any time! Additional packages will be required, per organizer on the project.

How does the process work once you come into my home or office?2017-10-19T14:54:50-05:00

Sorted Out will bring the necessary supplies to start sorting the items that need to be organized. The client normally is included in this process but is not required. Then, after sorting the things that need to be organized we will then access the “stuff” and make a list of supplies we will need to finish the project. Keep in mind this process doesn’t happen overnight and may take some time and commitment, but surely we will get you Sorted Out too!

Do you do the shopping for organizational products or do I have to do this?2017-10-19T14:54:37-05:00

We will do the shopping for you if you’d like. Normally, our clients don’t have the time and they are not sure what to purchase. We charge our normal hourly rate for shopping and we DO NOT up charge our products. We are in the business of organizing not retail. If you decide you want to do the shopping, we can make you a list and tell you where to go to get the items that are needed to finish your project.

What can I expect when I hire Sorted Out?2017-10-19T14:54:23-05:00

You can expect appointments to fit your needs when you work with us. All of our organizers will walk through the home with you for the consultation and if you agree to start organizing, we will schedule our first four hour session at that time. Sorted Out will determine what your priorities are for the project and what your goals are.

How long will it take to organize my home?2017-10-19T14:54:11-05:00

The amount of time it will take us depends on a few things. Keep in mind every situation is different and we are trained organizers to help the process move along as quickly as we can.

  • How much stuff you would like us to organize.
  • How quickly you can make decisions about what to keep and what to donate.
  • How available you are to organize with Sorted Out.
Do you charge by the hour or by the project?2017-10-19T14:52:34-05:00

Sorted Out charges by the hour and we have a four hour minimum. However if we are working separate from the client, they may opt for us to work the entire day. We will customize a schedule that fits your needs.

How much does your service cost?2017-10-19T14:52:16-05:00

We like to view the cost of our services as an investment in the way you choose to live an organized life. The cost of each project varies based on the amount of things you have that need organized and how quickly we all work together. Every situation is unique and we will take your budget into consideration when we visit for your consultation.

How far in advance do I need to schedule my first appointment?2017-10-19T14:52:03-05:00

Because we have a team of staff organizers trained, we can usually start your project the same week or by the next week you call. During busy periods, we may be booked out two to three weeks in advance, however we do have a waiting list that we refer to for cancellations.

I am concerned about what you will see in my home. Do you guarantee confidentiality?2017-10-19T14:51:51-05:00

Yes, all of our work is confidential. We can provide you with our confidentially agreement prior at the time of our consultation at your request. We may take pictures of your project, however no names will be released and people will not be included in the photos. You can feel confident that you can trust our staff organizers with your complete project.
