At our first session, we visit your space, evaluate your challenges, set goals for completing your project, review budget and product options and create an organizing plan of action. If time allows, we will get you started on decluttering or implementing organizing solutions.

If you know you need more hands-on organizing help with us, you can jump right to one of our packages below.

Get Relief: Hands-On Organizing Help

Due to COVID-19 and for the foreseeable future, we are currently not providing hands-on organizing help at client locations.

Your ultimate goal is to get ongoing control over your surroundings. Sometimes this requires more than a strategy; you need hands-on assistance. SolutionsForYou is different from other organizers because of our method: 5 Steps to Organizing®. It reflects our belief and experience: organizing is a teachable skill when it’s tailored to your specific needs. In our sessions, you get in-person help, judgment-free support, proven tools, and customized systems to help you maintain the transformation we create. You not only get organized, but you also stay organized.

4 Questions You Should Ask Before Hiring a Professional Organizer

My garage was not usable.  It was crowded with heaps of boxes that had remained sealed and stored since my break-up.  The garage had flooded, but I could not bring myself to open the boxes.  I was ashamed to let anyone see it. Just the IDEA of cleaning out the garage had overwhelmed me for years. But I felt calm and efficient once Anne and I began to work together. Anne pitched right in and worked alongside me.  I felt she was interested in me as a person. She did not think less of me because of my disorganized state.”  -- Beth Kaye

Special Services

Everyone’s situation and learning style are different. We offer three special services that supplement or replace hands-on organizing.

Coaching

With professional services coaching, you receive practical, supportive, and encouraging problem-solving, much like a mentor, tutor, or fitness trainer. Anne is a graduate of Denslow Brown’s Coach Approach for Organizers. Her coursework focused on coaching people with ADHD, though the approach works for anyone.  Learn More

Practicums

Training practicums are a team of supervised, new organizers who work with a client virtually by Zoom video conferencing to complete an organizing project over three days. These are eager, hard-working, excited individuals who want to demonstrate their unique organizing skills. To learn more, Contact Us.
