Commonly Asked Questions and Concerns
Simple Space Consulting is committed to addressing all your tidying concerns, if you have additional questions please feel free to contact us at anytime.
1. Why should I hire a professional?
Partnership. As a consultant my sole purpose is to set you up for success. Having a certified consultant by your side as you embark on your once in a lifetime Tidying Festival can be extremely valuable. 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 getting through obstacles while organizing your home. A consultant can be involved in as much or as little as the client desires.
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 45 minutes of our tidying session, we'll slowly start to wrap up the session accordingly so that we honor your schedule. Depending on the length of a session and our agreement, we may assign homework and schedule our next session.
3. I really need help organizing my space, but I'm too nervous to commit. What's my next move?
It's common to be nervous at the thought of committing to such a thorough organizing method.I recommend that you take advantage of my free 20 minute phone consultation and 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, Simple Space Consulting 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. I would be able to give you a more accurate quote after touring your space and reviewing your particular circumstances.
5. Is it expensive?
There is an initial investment to hiring a certified consultant, we find that the value exceeds the cost in many ways. Completing your tidying festival is more than just an organized home; you gain clarity, peace of mind, energy, and take back your time. Reflect on the purchases that you've spent money on where the intrinsic value superseded the money spent. If you view it in terms of your long term happiness, you'll find that the cost is not much at all.
