Just the FAQS
What are your hours?
I'm available to help you between the hours of 8:30am - 5:00pm, weekdays (Monday - Friday).
Do you come over to my house to give me an estimate for cost?
If you hire Ashley Organizes to work on one area of your house, then we just set the date and work together to complete the project. If several areas/rooms or whole house are involved, then I come over and meet with you so that we can discuss a game plan ... where to start and how to begin.
How do I estimate how long a project will take?
This is the most difficult question to answer. Much of our success depends on your willingness of letting things go which no longer serve you. I am able to work quickly but, given that all of this "stuff" has a personal connection to you, you have to be ready to look at, assess and give me direction. Once the paring-down stage is complete, I am able to structure/organize the remainder of items in a way that should be most suited to your needs (I can work independently and quickly at this stage).
After an initial session (3 hours), we are better able to gauge how efficiently we are working together and we typically have a better idea of how long it will take.
Do I have to be present for you to organize my house?
Yes! During the initial purging/paring-down phase, this is when I need you the most. I ask a lot of questions. I want to figure out where problems exist and how you use things ... with what frequency ... what is important to you etc. After this initial phase, I am able to then work by myself to restructure and reorganize your space. It helps though if you are available so that I am able to ask questions should they arise.
Should I buy an organizational pieces/products beforehand?
No. Not at the beginning. We have no idea what the remainder of items will look like and how things will be structured. We have to pare down before seeing what we are left with. Also, I am a big believer in re-purposing items in your household. I will find as much as I can with what you already own.
Do you remove items for donation and trash?
No I don't. But I am able to help schedule these resources for you.
Why do you ask to take "before" and "after" photos? And, do I have to agree to this?
No, you don't have to agree to this. I fully respect your privacy. Many people feel embarrassment or shame. I am a judgement-free zone for you! I just love making a difference and helping someone find peace and balance out of their clutter. I ask to take photos in the event that you are ok with me using before/after photos in my marketing. It's the best way to showcase my skills. Plus, it gives people a sense of relief that there are "others like me" and that something can be done to change things.
The best way to get something done is to begin. Are you wondering if I might be able to help? Call me 502-558-9865 or email me and we can talk about tailoring organizational solutions the are just right for you.
