  • What's a Professional Organizer?
    The National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals (NAPO) describes a professional organizer as a person who “enhances the lives of clients by designing systems and processes using organizing principles and through transferring organizing skills. Professional organizers help their clients take control of their surroundings, their time, their papers, and their systems.” According to NAPO: Professional Organizer: supports evaluation, decision-making, and action around objects, space, and data; helping clients achieve desired outcomes regarding function, order, and clarity. Productivity Consultant: supports evaluation, decision-making, and action around time, energy, and resources; helping clients achieve desired outcomes regarding goals, effectiveness, and priorities.

  • What is the difference between a "Cleaner" and a "Professional Organizer"?"
    The following article does an awesome job explaining what we, professional organizers, do: What Professional Organizers Really Do, and How They Can Help. Here is my brief take on this matter: Professional Organizing is very different from cleaning. It requires a completely different set of skills, talents, and credentials. A cleaner's job is also very valuable. However, the spaces a cleaner tackles will regularly get utilized and become dirty over time. The goal of the cleaner is to keep coming back to help you keep that space clean. They may engage in some light organizing and tidying activities, but the scope of their work involves washing, scrubbing, vacuuming, sweeping, wiping, etc. My goal as your P.O. is to help you take care of a significant problem in both your personal and professional lives, both physically and digitally, that interferes with the quality of your work and your life. My goal is to help you solve a major life problem permanently by creating a system and equipping you with the skills which will help you move forward to bigger and better things. My goal is to save you time, money, and energy. My goal is to help better your life in the long term. In short, my organizing goal is to minimize or eliminate your need for me in the future. P.S. The set of skills and tools that a cleaner needs are vastly different from the set of skills and tools a P.O. needs.

  • How will you work with me?
    You will decide: What stays What goes Where things belong Your own "flow" How you want things to look I will: Listen actively and identify all your needs and concerns Provide creative ideas Gently guide you when you’re undecided Follow all your instructions Ensure your experience will be fun and memorable Everything will be organized 100% your way, according to your vision and preferences! And you will enjoy the process!
  • Those organizing systems out there never worked for me before!
    Getting organized is a very personal and unique process. Everybody has their own ways. What works for some won’t work for others. The benefit of hiring me as your professional organizer is because I will make the effort to understand your ways, habits, needs, and goals, and help you build a system “your way” which will feel seamless to you; rather than buying and installing a one-size-fits-all product. I will also provide the support you may need until you feel like the newly organized systems are a part of your daily routine with no extra effort.
  • Will you force me to throw my things away?
    NEVER! As you start seeing your space from a different perspective during the organizing process, and consider the guidance and advice I provide, you will be the one to decide what stays and what goes. Together we will sort everything based on 3 criteria: Is it needed? Is it loved? Is it irreplaceable? You may decide to trash, recycle, donate or sell some of your items, but nothing will ever leave your sight without your permission.
  • Do I have to be there when you're organizing?
    This depends on your schedule, goals, and specific needs. My recommendation as a professional organizer is to be present and work together side-by-side to complete your project because: Keep in mind that we are not there to clean or tidy up until things get messed up again. We are actually implementing systems that will change YOUR life. If you are absent, you will not get the highest return from your investment. My goal is to tailor everything to your exact preferences. Questions come up during each step of the process and you may find yourself modifying your initial decisions as we get deeper. If decluttering, you must make the decisions. There is no shortcut around this. Nothing will be discarded or replaced without your specific permission. Your presence is necessary for this stage to go more smoothly and efficiently. It is beneficial for you to learn the necessary skills to maintain the organized systems going forward. Your presence will facilitate the needed communication for a clearer transfer of organizing expertise. Your presence will speed up the sorting process and save you significant time and money in the long run. I aim to save my clients time, money, energy and other invaluable resources. We will maximize your savings by working together.
  • Do you work alone or with a team?
    Majority of the projects are great for me to work alone with you, while some require that I bring another organizing specialist for an extra hand. We can figure this out together during the assessment stage.
  • Are you licensed and insured?
    ​Yes! World In Order LLC fully licensed and insured.
  • What about my privacy?
    100% secure! Any information you choose to share with me stays between us. Pictures or comments will not be shared without your written consent. Please review the World In Order policies page for more information on how your privacy will be protected. World In Order strictly abides by the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO) Code of Ethics. As a proud University of Virginia alumnus, I have sworn to abide by their Honor Code. My own personal code of ethics is founded upon trust, fairness, and honor.
  • How much does it cost?
    The cost of hiring a highly trained Professional Organizer is about the same as hiring an interior designer, personal trainer, image consultant, or other similar service professionals. Quality is what you deserve, and quality is what we provide! There are plenty of money-saving options available from hourly to monthly plans, depending on your budget and project size, in addition to frequent specials and promotions announced on social media. It is very difficult to come up with an estimate because every project is unique. However, it is for certain that the cost of getting organized is much less than the decision not to get organized. After our first session, you will discover significant benefits by making this investment in yourself, your family, and/or your business. The reduced stress and increased time savings will be priceless. Current specials and packages are listed on the Rates & Book Online page.
  • Is it worth the money?
    Yes! One of the most valuable investments you can make towards your future is hiring a professional organizer. There are some real high costs associated with not having everything in order. The chaos, the stress, the overwhelm associated with not finding what you need, not paying bills on time, and not getting stuff done sooner generally result in priceless time stolen from loved ones, loved activities, work opportunities, and not to mention late fees and interest charges. What if you could feel like your life is running smoothly, you’re consistently productive without added stress, and your environment functions like a well-oiled machine? World in Order is here to help you realize that dream. I have helped hundreds of people do so, and I wouldn’t rest until I help you the same way.
  • What happens after you leave?
    In addition to the physical hands-on organizing itself, a major part of my work involves guiding and coaching you to acquire some valuable skills that you can apply to your own ways and lifestyle. If you still need support and motivation after our work is done, I am just a phone call or text message away to help you get back on track! If you need one, I will be happy to customize a maintenance package for your specific needs.
  • How long will it take to organize me? I don't know how many hours to book!
    One of the hardest aspects of organizing is estimating the duration of an organizing project due to the uniqueness of every situation. Some projects can be completed within an hour while some may take days. It is nearly impossible to know the exact impact of the many factors on the project. Remember: It is more time-consuming to sort through years of accumulation, designing and implementing efficient solutions, and coaching to transfer organizing skills, than it is to just “tidy up.” ​ If you are still unsure about choosing the right organizing package after reviewing the Services and Rates & Book Online pages, please call me at 305-209-4620 so we can figure it all out together. My goal is to come up with the best solution for your ultimate happiness! If I’m not the right fit for you, I will do my best to point you in the right direction.

  • How does the assessment work?
    In-depth Discovery and Assessment appointment typically lasts one hour and is included in all packages over 4 hours. If we are done with the assessment earlier, that means for more time for organizing!
  • Is my house / office the worst you've ever seen?
    Absolutely not! There is no such thing as good, bad, better, worse… I am not here to judge or rank. This is the work I LOVE to do, and I handle each space with the utmost respect and care. Any physical or digital space to organize makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. I love doing this and I love changing lives. It doesn't matter what the project is. The joy you will feel upon completion of it is all I care about.
  • How should I prepare for our first meeting?
    Do absolutely nothing! It is important for me to see your habitual ways and the daily functionality of your space prior to implementing the best possible systems to keep it organized.
  • Should I buy any organizing supplies?
    During our initial discovery conversation, I will advise you on the basic supplies we will most likely need, such as trash bags, rubber bands, zip lock bags, etc. (You may have a renewed appreciation for rubber bands when we are done.) The type and amount of products needed (if any) will become clearer after the sorting and decluttering stage. MY GOAL IS TO SAVE YOU TIME AND MONEY. Best way to do that is by utilizing and re-purposing things you already own. If together we decide on getting additional items, I will take measurements, do the actual shopping for you, or make recommendations on items such as shelving units.
  • How are unwanted items removed?
    All packages include the removal of trash & donation items. If the volume and/or weight necessitates assistance, arrangements can be made with a third party contractor.
  • What is virtual organizing?
    Virtual organizing is D-I-Y organizing with remote guidance and coaching by the organizer utilizing digital technology. Methods include appointments via face-time, Skype, phone calls, sending pictures, emails, chats, social media tools, etc.
  • How do you compare with Marie Kondo?
    Some of our similarities: Passion and desire to change people’s lives. Enthusiastic, cheerful, positive, supportive, and non-judgmental energy. Ability to put nervous clients at ease. Active listening skills. Encouraging and compassionate guidance on the benefits of letting go and organizing. Ability to blend coaching into cheerleading. Belief in the important role a domestic world in order plays in and brings joy to family relationships. Belief in the important role a professional world in order plays in improving business success. My natural and organic talents that resemble her organizing techniques. Some of our differences: I do the hands-on organizing work in much less time. I aim to minimize or eliminate “homework” between sessions. I will never force you to discard items you do not want to part with. You are always the boss! I will make suggestions, but if you're on the fence, we will find a way to work around those items. You and I will work together to do the physical sorting, decluttering, and organizing and we will have a lot of fun together during the process. You determine your priorities for your organizing project, while I provide gentle guidance to help the work get done in the shortest amount of time possible (not months). My organizing goes far beyond folding clothes and drawer dividers. My work greatly surpasses "tidying up". Decluttering is just part of the process. I work with you to create AND implement systems that are tailored to your specific needs and habits. I will organize for you and with you while coaching you on the techniques to transfer my skills so you can remain organized. I will not just tell you what to do and then leave you alone. We are in this together.
  • Do you work with hoarders?
    I accept new hoarding clients if we both feel that I am qualified to make a positive impact in their lives after a separate 1-hour on-site appointment charged at the regular hourly rate. The cost of this appointment will be automatically rolled into the organizing package. Keep in mind, not every messy or disorganized person is a hoarder. It's a term that's been used very loosely to express the severity of one's organization challenge. Most people who label themselves as hoarders are actually not. There are also levels of hoarding. Read more about Complusive Hoarding here.
  • Should I empty out my furniture for packing?
    No. If your move is local, we will figure out a way to minimize emptying dressers and other furniture, unless they contain breakables. Fragile items will be packed in a specific manner to ensure their safety.
  • Can we sleep at home the night before the actual move?
    Absolutely. I will help you put together an overnight-stay package so that you can sleep at home and be ready for the movers when they arrive.
  • Can you prepare our house for resale?
    Yes, we can.
  • Do we pack ourselves?
    No, please don’t! Professional packers are not insured for items they don’t personally pack. Also, we will need to see your current living systems in order to replicate it in your new residence.
  • Can I check your references?
    Absolutely. Please check the reviews on social media, or just ask me for more references.
  • What if I'm not happy?
    If you are not happy with how things are going after the first hour of 2+ hour sessions, we can refund the remaining hours in your session and part ways with no hard feelings. I completely respect the importance of finding the right match for you. Your happiness is my #1 priority! No refunds on 1-hour sessions.
