Organization Services

Home Organization

Client Assisted

We will work together to transform your space.  The process begins with sorting belongings, de-cluttering and eliminating unnecessary items.  My services include removal of items you no longer need or want, a space plan with individualized organizational systems, and product recommendations.  The space plan will include product recommendations within your specified budget, and shopping services are optional.  We will work together to complete the project, utilizing your individualized space plan and new products.

Comprehensive

We will work together initially to sort belongings and establish goals for your space.  A space plan with individualized organizational systems and product recommendations within your specified budget will be developed.  The remaining steps will be completed without your assistance, or need to be present.  These steps include: removal of items you no longer need or want, (donation and consignment options available) product shopping services and completion of the project utilizing your individualized space plan and new products.

 

Space Planning

Space planning and consultation services are for those that are interested in doing much of the work themselves, but are not sure how to get started, what products to invest in, or how to develop a system that will work over time.  I will review challenging spaces in your home to assist you in developing a plan to control clutter and establish order.  This includes a personalized organizational plan, recommendations of products to assist in establishing and maintaining your organizational system, and a product shopping guide. Clients often request that we begin the process and then schedule periodic 1-2 hour appointments to finalize a space and get started on a new project.  This is a great option for those that are working within a tight budget, but need some assistance to get started and keeping moving!

 

Closet Design

Many closets are created with a “one-design-fits-all” philosophy that results in frustrating storage systems in old and new homes alike. Designing a closet requires a detailed analysis of the belongings it will hold and the lifestyle of those that use it, from an expert with knowledge of the endless materials and customizations on the market today.

If you would like to update an existing closet or find yourself designing a new closet with a blank slate, Organized Housewife can assist you. Working together, we will create a closet that is perfectly designed for your belongings and your lifestyle, with your budget and interior design preferences in mind. Properly designing a closet before installation will allow you to invest in a storage system that is both efficient and beautiful.

 

Staging & Moving

At Organized Housewife we talk a lot about protecting the investment of your home through proper home management and cleaning techniques. However maximizing the value of your home is never as important as when you are preparing to put it on the market. We all know the value of staging a home that is appealing to others and often call on professionals of the interior design or real estate community to pull together the details of home staging. However, many homes are bought and sold because home buyers desire more space and better order in their homes. Decluttering and organizing your home before placing it on the market will maximize its value and make your move to a new home less stressful and time consuming.

Organized Housewife will assist you in purging the clutter that makes rooms feel small and closet space look inadequate. Through this purging process you will fully evaluate your storage needs for your future home so that you can make wise space and design decisions. We will also assist you in categorizing belongings and evaluating systems to streamline unpacking and settling into your new home. Decluttering and organizing before you move will prevent the common mistake of moving stuff that you don’t even want or need, saving you time and money in the moving process.

Home Management

The modern family has larger homes and busier schedules than any generation before us. This combination has left most of us overwhelmed by the task of managing and cleaning our homes. Organized Housewife pairs traditional cleaning services with home management to keep your home clutter free and organized. The piles of paper, toys, sports gear, laundry and other articles of life that often get pushed aside for surface cleaning are properly stored prior to cleaning. This prevents closets and cupboards from becoming disorganized from the necessity to quickly stash clutter, and allows for a more thorough cleaning throughout your home. As each item in your home is properly stored on a regular basis you will find that you live differently in your home, knowing where to find your belongings and having more time to relax and enjoy the company of your loved ones.

 

Cleaning

The Organized Housewife Team is passionate about assisting you in cleaning and caring for your home as if it were our own. A clean and orderly home is an important aspect of a healthy family life. Our team will manage the details of caring for the interior of your home, so that you can care for the people in your life and engage in the aspects of life that you are passionate about.

Organized Housewife has a unique approach to home cleaning services that allows us to work with home owners to systematically deep clean your home on a regular basis. Traditional cleaning services differentiate between ongoing cleaning and periodic deep cleaning that typically takes place in the spring, for the holidays, etc. Preserving the quality of our homes requires us to continually pay attention to the details of our home and attend to cleaning and maintenance issues in a timely manner. Our team will complete standard cleaning tasks including: kitchens, baths, vacuuming, mopping floors, dusting, etc. We will also regularly rotate through additional deep cleaning tasks such as: light fixtures, baseboards, appliances, doors, handles & knobs, walls, etc.   Cleaning your home and preserving your largest investment is an ongoing priority, as we work to make your home “Open House Ready” after each visit.
