Frequently Asked Questions?

What is a professional organizer?


A Professional Organizer is an independent consultant who advises, guides and assists clients in attaining order within their spaces. We provide a wide range of services from home and office optimization to personal assistance. We assist with decluttering, minimizing, sorting while maximizing your space(s) and creating permanent locations for all your belongings. We educate clients and their families on how easy it is to put items back in their designated space(s) by using labels for older people or pictures for younger children that tells them exactly where the items go. Our primary focus is to help clients, families and businesses transform their environments into spaces that work best for their lifestyle. Professional Organizers are encouraging, supportive, and nonjudgmental.




Why hire a professional organizer?


Too much clutter can cause a person to feel overwhelmed which leads to anxiety, higher levels of stress, depression and reduced productivity to name a few. If conditions of life have brought disorganization throughout your home, office and/or life then we can assist with cleaning it up.

We can help you tackle that one large project such as the garage, attic, or even the list of smaller projects like the piles of papers or kid’s toys scattered throughout.

We not only assist with organizing your area(s) but also creates systems to help keep it that way.

We are impartial and don’t have the same attachments to your items as you do. We then work together to decide what needs to be kept, donated, sold, trashed, relocated or filed away.

You may see clutter as a task you want to run from. We see clutter as a mission we would love to conquer. We help people retake control over their lives and time. We can help you gain a new appreciation for your space(s).

We are your teammate on your journey to living a more selected lifestyle. We will work with you side-by-side to conquer your organization goals.




What are the benefits of being organized?


Too many to tally. You'll find that you know where everything is and have more time to spend with those who matter most. You'll be much happier and less stressed which will increase your level of productivity all while saving tons of money on the things you no longer have to repurchase.

Life is so much better when your environment is in order.

When you feel you need that extra push or guided hand, we'll be right beside you as your teammate/coach/mentor.




Will you work with me or just coach me?


Both. We will help you declutter, minimize, organize, and clean your spaces. Once the session is complete we will discuss how to go about maintaining the space(s).




How long will it take to organize the space(s)?


We are unsure. Clutter and disorganization happens over time, so transforming your space(s) may or may not happen overnight. Each session, space, and person is different. Organizing is a process and the length of time to organize a space will depend on the size of the space, the amount of items within the space, how quickly the client makes decisions. We also have to take in consideration the number of organizers on the project, the time allowed within the comforts of everyone's schedule and also if you or someone will be assisting with the process. Passion Organizing staff will work as quickly and efficiently as possible to help you reach your goals and meet your personal needs and budget.

Will my sessions and personal information be kept confidential?


Yes absolutely, we are all employees in the medical field where we are required to keep all information no matter how big or small confidential. We have a home office within the comforts of the owner’s master that not only has a lock on the door but also on the file cabinet where all information is housed. The door is always locked when the owner isn’t occupying it. Consultations, conversations, questions, meetings will all be kept confidential between you myself and any other organizers on staff.

Our hourly rate is $60 per hour/per organizer. There is a 3-hour minimum number of hours required per project. Please keep in mind even small projects can take approximately 3 to 4 hours to complete. Every space is unique the best way to determine the cost is to schedule a consultation to discuss the needs, wants and approximate budget.

What should I expect when hiring a professional organizer?


A professional organizer will not judge you or your disorganization. An organizer will keep all your information confidential.

You should expect friendly, courteous discussions about your items, questions about your goals, daily habits and suggestions about systems and ways of making organizing easier.

You should be prepared to work. Your input and help is very important to the organizing process. Whether we or the both of us organize, we will begin the process of sorting through your items.

Do not expect your professional organizer to clean areas outside the space(s) in question, unless he or she has agreed to add on cleaning services for an additional charge.




How can a professional organizer help me with the moving process?


Moving is a lot of work, and many of us cannot afford to hire a full service moving company.

If you can't, a professional organizer can help you downsize, categorize, sort and label boxes of items to be packed or left behind.

Even if you can hire professional movers, it's always a good idea to prepare for your move by sorting out what you want to take with you and what stays behind, and a professional organizer can help with that process.




We're moving to a smaller house but have too much stuff. Can you help us downsize?


Yes, we can help you through the process of sorting, purging, packing and unpacking if needed.




We're moving in together; can you help us combine our households?


Yes. Two of everything means you will end up with a lot of stuff!

We can help sort through everything and find homes for all your things you would like to keep as well as the things that you want to get rid of.




What can I do to prepare for your visit?


Most people are embarrassed about their clutter or perceived disorganization.

Don’t worry! We’ve seen it all. There is no need to pre-organize before our visit.

Eat a good meal the day of and be sure to dress comfortably. If we are organizing your garage or attic, you might want to wear clothes than can get dirty or dusty.

Be ready to sort and make decisions.




Can you help me organize my computer?


Yes. We can help with electronic files and system organization.

Technology is a growing challenge for many, as the world we live in moves more and more from papers to electronics.

Knowing where within your system to locate your files is as important as knowing where to find your house keys.




Can you help me create a process for managing emails?


Yes. Just like regular mail, email just keeps on coming and coming!

It’s very important to do an initial email cleanse so that a process can be created for handling future emails while preventing the feeling of being overwhelmed by looking at so much.




Can disorganizatin really affect my stress level?


Absolutely, research has proven that disorganization and clutter affects many aspects of your life including; your stress level. It causes anxiety and diminishes productivity.

You may know this feeling all too well. Running late to an appointment or to pick up the kids only to realize that you cant find your keys anywhere? Or how many times have you forgot to pay a bill because you misplaced it?

Disorganization steals your time and energy. Without developing a daily routine for managing life's tasks, things are sure to slip through the cracks.

Good news is that anyone can get organized. You didn't get disorganized overnight. You must remember that getting to a place of organization is a journey.

A professional organizer will work with you at your pace to help you develop sustainable solutions that can help to reduce your stress, anxiety, increase your time and improve your quality of life.

With Passion Organizing by your side, you can transform your life and get back to doing the things you love!




How can a professional organizer help you?


We can help you to save money, pay bills on time, never miss a scheduled appointment, time, transfer positive skills to you, your family and/or employees. We can add structure to your life, help you to know where things are located with a quick glance, reduce stress and the feeling of being overwhelmed and put you back in control of your environment.




Does a household member need to be present or can you organize without me?


No you do not have to be present however, organizing is a process and being involved throughout that process helps you to become more aware of how to better make use of your space(s). During our organizing sessions, we teach and transfer organization skills to help you maintain the systems that are being implemented. The end result must make sense to you, your family and/or business and must support how you live, work and play. We understand that you are busy, and we do offer sessions that do not require anyone to be there, only after we have discussed in detail your challenges, disorganization triggers, goals and budget. We would ask that you have a entry key copied prior to our arrival so that we can lock your home once the session is complete. The key will be housed with a number on it to identify client only. No one would understand the meaning of the numbers or whom it belongs to. The key would also be kept locked away in a safe at all times when not being used to organize your space(s). It will then be returned at the end of all sessions.




I am embarrased about my home. Is my home the worst?


This is by far one of the most common concerns our clients have. Its normal to feel this way, but we understand and are not there to judge. We can almost guarantee that your home is not the worst. We also, don't view things the way you might view them meaning we were born to clean and organize. It's what we love and were born to do. So while you see clutter, we see solutions. We want to help you create space, time and peace of mind. More importantly, it doesn't even matter how anyone else feels or thinks. Our purpose is to help you so that you can get back to being the best version of yourself.




Do I need to purchase containers, boxes or other organizational supplies?


No our primary goal is to make the most out of the space and items that you already own. After we purge and complete a thorough assessment of the items that need storage, only at that time will we be able to determine if container solutions are required. We are more than happy to recommend budget friendly solutions or even do the shopping for you.




Do you work with individuals who have ADHD?


Yes, if you or another household member has ADHD please don't hesitate to let us know. We know the challenges that one faces and are all very knowledgeable about the ADHD process for we have close family members who have been diagnosed with ADHD. We will work with you and/or the individual to create easy to maintain plans so you'lll be able to manage the system that are put in place.




What geographical area's do you provide services?


We currently service Atlanta, Georgia ~ Findlay, Ohio and surrounding cities. We are willing to travel out of state for an additional fee and advance scheduling. Ask for additional details.




Am I required to provide a tip?


While tipping is not required, it is always greatly appreciated. A tip shows a job well done. If I provide a tip how much should I give? We get this question all the time. While there is no magic number, those who choose to tip generally give around $5 - $20 per employee.




What is your refund policy?


While we do not provide refunds, we will do everything in our power to provide you with the best experience possible. So if for any reason you are unhappy with the service rendered, please just call or send us an e-mail within 24 hours of your service and we'll send someone out to make things right. That's our promise to you!




Are you Insured?


Yes. Rest assure that we are fully licensed, bonded and insured.




What is your policy on Social Distancing and PPE equipment?


Ideally we service your home while you’re away. Recognizing that’s not always feasible, we’d ask that everyone please remain in a different room and physically away from the staff at least 6 feet apart as much as possible. If it’s necessary for you to come in close proximity to the staff we’d kindly ask that you also wear a mask. Please contact us to discuss potential solutions and planning if you think remaining socially distant will be a challenge for you. The staff will be wearing face masks, gloves, and/or washing hands along with using sanitizer during every session, prior to leaving, and prior to arriving at all sessions. Staff will also be using commercial-grade disinfectant approved to kill bacteria and virus such as but not limited to H1N1, HIV and Coronavirus (COVID-19).




What happens when illness occurs?


We’ll never send anyone to your home that is or has been ill within the last 14 days (also includes members within their household). We require all staff in office bring a doctor's note allowing them back to work stating they are free and clear from illness. We’re also taking the added measures requiring all employees to check their temperature daily. We’ll contact you to reschedule if we’re unable to send a substitute staff member. If you or a member of your household is or has been ill and/or experiencing any symptoms within the last 14 days, please reschedule your your session.




Are you pet friendly?


We love pets! Except those that bite! Infact the owner Lexy has a Shih-tzu named Yoda. Eventhough we love pets it has been our personal experience of noticing that they tend to either follow us around to see what we are doing, wanting love and affection, make more of a mess with shedding and toys limiting what you'll be able to see has been completed or creating extra time spent cleaning/organizing your space. Some have even became anxious or aggressive around the staff (and the dreaded vacuum!) For these reasons we ask that all animals be kept in a room (that doesn't need to be serviced), crated, taken to a relative and/or taken to pet day-care. Whose pet doesn’t love a day at the pet spa? Hmmm … well maybe not ~Yoda~!
