Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why should I hire a professional organizer?
A: Professional Organizers use their skills and knowledge to educate and teach others about organizing
principles. We are an objective, third party who will assess your environment and pinpoint the areas of your
life or business that present the most challenges to you.
Q: If I have been disorganized all my life, can I really change?
A: Of Course! Organization comes naturally to some people and for others it is a skill that takes time to
develop. Over time and by working with an expert, it is possible for you to learn to apply the principles of
organizing to your own life.
Q: Should I clean my home/office before you visit?
A: Not at all! A professional organizer is just that, a professional. We are non-judgmental and have seen
many different situations and circumstances. We need to see the environment that truly exists so we can set
up a system that will work for you.
Q: Will my sessions be confidential?
A: Absolutely. We know our clients place a high level of trust in us. As a member of the National Association
of Professional Organizers (NAPO), we are bound by a Code of Ethics to insure any information remains
Q: Will you actually do the work or will you just show me how to do it?
A: Both. A professional organizer’s role is as a consultant. Our purpose is to identify your goals, needs, and
specific challenges and helping you find solutions you can maintain long term. Some clients want to work
hand-in-hand with an organizer, working together to sort, purge, categorize, and set up appropriate, workable
systems. Other clients are self-motivated and feel comfortable doing the work on their own, but just need a
specific plan to help them get started. Our purpose is to show you how to organize and streamline your life to
be more productive, because organizing is a continual process. We don’t want you to be dependent on us, we
want just the opposite, independent, productive, successful, and happily organized clients!
Q: What do you charge? Is it expensive?
A: We always provide a free initial consultation. We do pride ourselves in organizing on a budget and we will
use any existing tools and supplies you have on hand for the new space. As for specific rates, each project is
unique and we offer different plans based on your needs. We have hourly and per project rates. Rest assured,
Life Management will find a way to work within your budget. Our services allow you to find the calmness in the
chaos of everyday life. Think about our services as an investment in your overall well-being and happiness.
Q: How long does the organizing process take?
A: Since every client’s needs are different, the time it takes to organize a space can vary greatly from client to
client. After the needs assessment and initial consultation, where we talk about your goals, ideas, and
pinpoint your needs, we can give you a range of time it will take to complete a project.
Q: What methods of payment will you accept?
A: You may pay by cash, personal or business check, money order, or credit card via Paypal.
Q: Help!! I need an Organizer now! Do you work evenings and weekends?
A: I can usually get you scheduled within one week. And yes, I work evenings and weekends, whenever is convenient for you.
