Commonly Asked Questions and Concerns
I am committed to addressing all your tidying concerns, if you have additional questions please feel free to contact me at anytime.
1. Why should I hire a professional?
After years of trials and tribulations, you can finally achieve a tidy home once and for all! As a consultant my sole purpose is to set you up for sustaining a tidy home long after I am gone. I bring accountability, expertise, and am trained to assist you in what can be a physical and emotional journey of getting your space in order. This can be especially beneficial if you find that you have a hard time starting, finishing, or focusing on organizing your home. I can be involved in as much or as little as you desire.
2. What does a typical consultation look like?
Our first consultation will always begin with a tour of your home/space, followed by a brief interview about your vision and goals for organizing your space. We'll proceed with the categories as per the KonMari Method™ and start by collecting all of the items pertaining to a category. We'll establish and refresh what it means for items to Spark Joy and go through each item before moving on to storage. When we reach the last 20 minutes of our tidying session, we'll slowly start to wrap up the session accordingly so that I honor your schedule. Depending on the length of a session and our agreement, I may assign homework and schedule our next session.
3. I really need help organizing my space, but I'm too nervous to commit. What should I do?
It's common to be nervous at the thought of committing to such a thorough organizing method. I highly recommend that you take advantage of my free 15 minute phone consultation where we can discuss any questions that you may have. I can help address your biggest concerns and ease your nerves about the process. I offer a no pressure environment with no strings attached, I will be there when you feel you are ready to take the leap on your tidying journey.
4. How long does it usually take to completely organize a home?
It largely depends on the size of your home, how many people live with you, your availability, and of course the amount of things you own. On average, I would say it could take approximately 50 hours to complete a tidying festival for one person. For most clients, at least the first 15 hours are spent in the Clothing, Books and Papers category. Kitchen and Garage are usual pain points for many of my clients, which we tackle once the initial three categories are completed. This should give you a general idea if you'd like to specifically work on those miscellaneous categories during our time together. I would be able to give you a more accurate quote after touring your space and reviewing your particular circumstances.
5. What forms of payment are accepted?
I accept Cash, Check and mobile payment services (Paypal-Venmo).
6. Cancellation Policy?
In order to receive a full refund, each client must cancel within 48 hours notice. Cancellations between 24-48 hours will receive a 50% refund, and no refunds will be accepted with less than 24 hours notice.
7. Do I need to read the books?
No, while it may be helpful it is not necessary to read the books. I am able to guide you through the KonMari Method™ in all consultations.
8. How far do you travel?
I travel often and love to travel to different places. Depending on the distance and time spent at a location, there would be a minimum required spending. This could be achieved through one or multiple households. Contact me for more details on how to bring a Certified KonMari Consultant to your area. Additionally, I announce ahead of time cities and countries that I will be visiting on my site.
9. How do I schedule a session?
