Phone Consultation Free

We will then set up an appointment for a free, 20-30 minute, phone consultation. The phone consultation is an opportunity for us to get acquainted, and for you to tell me about your situation. I will seek to determine what is “out of order”, whether it is one area, or your entire home. I will attempt to find out what your organizing challenges are, and what your goals and expectations are. You will have the opportunity to get a feel for how I work with clients. If we feel that we are a good match, you can then either schedule an In-Home Consultation or, you may choose to schedule your first Hands-On Organizing Session or Organizing Package.

“The Forecast”  –   In-Home Consultation $75

During the In-Home Consultation, In Order for Life will evaluate the area(s) in your home that are “out of order” first hand, whether it is one area, several areas, or more! This is a time for me to ask many questions, as I seek to figure out your unique organizing, working, and living style. I will then be able to give you an idea of both the time frame and the process, and you will be able to get an idea of how I work.

Next, I will establish a suggested step-by-step Plan of Action, personalized for both your budget and your style, which will be presented to you during our first work session. If you choose to purchase an Organizing Package, $50 will be deducted from your first package, if scheduled within a month of the “Forecast”.

If you initially choose not to schedule a session or purchase an Organizing Package, you will receive your Action Plan within 5 business days.

If you know exactly what you would like to accomplish, and where you would like to start, you can choose to begin with an Organizing Session or Organizing Package and forgo the “Forecast” In-Home Consultation.

Organizing Packages:

Package Pricing:                         Total        Per  Session       Pre-Pay


4 Hour Organizing Package     $ 190              $  190               $  180


8 Hour Organizing Package     $ 352              $  176              $  334

32 Hour Organizing Package   $1,220           $  152              $1,165

During our first session, we will begin by working together to sort and purge, one area at a time.
Subsequent sessions will involve organizing your space and belongings in a manner that is both stylish and functional.

I will suggest specific “homework”, jobs that you can accomplish on your own, after each organizing session, reducing the number of hours that we work together.  You may, however, choose to have me work alongside you throughout the entire process.   The choice is yours.

An integral part of the process is giving you the tools and tips necessary to maintain your newly organized space.  To keep it “In Order for LIFE”!

The number of hours of actual hands-on, one-on-one, organizing services will depend on the size and condition of your space, and your desired result.  It will also depend on whether or not you choose to complete homework, and how quickly you make decisions as we sort, purge, and organize.
