Home Organizing

Your home or apartment should be a place you want to live in and enjoy…your refuge from the outside world. That’s not an option if you are overwhelmed by overflowing drawers and overstuffed closets, unable to find what you need, or embarrassed to have people over. In Its Place provides organizing services for every room in your home. We are your:

Needs Assessment Consultation

Getting started is often the hardest part – and the initial needs assessment consultation is a good place to start.  During this 1½ hour session, we do a walk-through of your home or apartment to

  • Determine what is and isn’t working
  • Assess your wants, needs, and goals
  • Provide recommendations and suggestions
  • Develop a strategy for moving forward

The initial consultation helps to provide clarity about what you would like to see happen and momentum to begin the organizing process.

Comments often made by clients during a consultation:

  • “That makes so much sense! I never thought about doing it that way.”
  • “So many good ideas – I feel like I can actually get started now!”
  • “It doesn’t seem as overwhelming now.”

Contact In Its Place to schedule a Needs Assessment Consultation.

Hands-on Organizing Sessions

In Its Place also provides hands-on organizing services to assist with sorting your belongings and deciding what to keep and what no longer fits in your life.  In these three-hour-minimum sessions, we use the information from your consultation as a basis for helping you make those decisions.  We utilize elements of space planning to enhance traffic flow and how you feel in each room and create systems for using and storing the items you keep so that your space and the “stuff” in it ultimately look good, function efficiently, and support how YOU want to live.

Most clients find it beneficial to have a professional organizer work alongside them throughout the organizing process, not only to keep them on task and reach their goals but also to learn new skills and behaviors that help them stay organized.

Not sure what to do with what you don’t want to keep?  In Its Place can find new “homes” for those items through recycling, donation, sale, and/or consignment.

Maintenance Plans

Some clients consider it useful to have In Its Place return on a regular basis to assist in maintaining their newly organized space or to help them make adjustments based on changing needs.  The frequency of these sessions is determined on an individual basis.
