We are unable to give estimates, but we have a solution!
Every project has too many variables in order to give an accurate estimate. The time it will take to finish depends on many things. They include the overall amount of clutter (visible and non-visible,) the amount of open space available for sorting and staging, your personal attachment to various items, your personal ability to make quick decisions, and more.
Although every situation is different, we can assess your needs over the phone, and we may, although rarely, request photos to have a better understanding. We then recommend starting with a 5-hour session with 2 of our organizers. When we arrive, we will take a tour of the home and briefly discuss what your priority concerns are. Once we agree on an area to begin, we jump in. While working at your pace, we learn more about you, your needs, your sentimental attachments, and your ability to make quick decisions.
By the end of this first session, we will have good insight and can better guess the approximate time we think it will take to accomplish your project goals. At that time you can decide how to proceed. You may opt to purchase a larger package or pay just for that day's session, or you may even opt to work with one organizer instead of two in future sessions. We believe in flexibility and only want to work at a pace that is comfortable for you!
All matters are kept completely confidential and will not be shared without your written consent. We will help you throughout the entire process, however necessary, and we will work with you in a way that will inspire you to take what you have learned onto other areas in your home and life well beyond our working relationship.

A Word About Our Rates
WE DON'T CLEAN HOUSES, WE CHANGE LIVES
Decluttering and organizing homes can be a difficult and emotional process for most clients, and letting strangers go through... Read More
your things requires a great deal of trust and confidentiality. We are often hired out of necessity rather than a luxury, to help improve daily living and to learn how to keep it that way. Hiring a professional organizer is really a personal investment.
Not all professional organizers are trained by the organizing industry's top experts, but we are, and we take it very seriously. Because we often work with both able-bodied and able-challenged clients, who have anywhere from minor disorganization to major hoarding issues, our organizers are required to have non-judgmental personalities. We can help you through various life transitions like moving, a marriage or career change, or the onset of physical injury or illness. We work with ADD/ADHD, aging seniors with or without certain ailments, people in mourning, hoarders, and many other client types.
Because you have chosen to expose your personal belongings and challenges to us, we take it very seriously. We do not judge and are here to help, not just provide a temporary fix. Each organizer on our team either follows or has individually paid memberships to ICD, NAPO, and other organizations. They offer classes and conferences, which we often attend, to help us keep up on the wide and complex organizing industry. They also offer specialty certification programs for various types of service. All this on-going education provides us with invaluable knowledge and allows us to serve you and your needs in the best possible manner.
Even with all this in mind, our pricing is still comparable to other professional organizers in the central Illinois area. Nationwide you will find professional organizers charging as much as $150-200 per hour PER organizer. Our rates have been set based on many factors to be fair to both our business and our market area whom may not be as familiar with what has been a very fast-growing industry. As with any business, we have expenses including advertising, insurance, training, gas and travel, payroll, taxes, supplies, uniforms, occasional protective gear, and more,
On average, our work is around $50 per hour per organizer and as low as $45 with bulk packaging. Discounts are available to seniors, military, realtors, professional mental and physical health referrals, and social service agencies.
Regardless of business expenses, we are providing a service that you will receive many long-term benefits from. In many ways our services have been considered a therapeutic life-coaching experience. We will assist you in the physical aspects such as sorting and purging, and coach you through the mental and sometimes emotional decision-making. We will help you analyze and re-think your organizing habits in both your home and in your life.
All matters are kept completely confidential and will not be shared without your written consent. We will help you throughout, however necessary, and work with you in a way that will at the very least inspire you to take what you have learned onto other areas in your home and life well beyond our working relationship.
Thank you for your attention,
