When I arrive for the first appointment, we will start with a tour around the space you want to get organized. We discuss what is happening, what you want to achieve and then work on an action plan. I treat all of my clients in a non-judgemental manner and focus on making progress towards their goals.

First, I always try to repurpose organizing products you already have in your home. After that, we will recommend products if needed.

No. I prefer to see your space in its normal state. This will give me a good idea of where to start and what needs to be implemented.

I send my clients to their accountants and/or lawyers for specific information. For some general guidelines, H&R Block has published Filing Cabinet Fix-Up: What To Keep and What To Pitch, which is a good starting place.

I have a very strict confidentiality policy and respect my clients’ privacy. I do not share who my clients are or post pictures of their spaces. I do encourage my clients to take their own  “before pictures” when we start working together.  This will help you see the progress being made over time, but those pictures are for your own use.

I wish I could as much as I wish I had a magic wand!  The reality is that I need you there to create a system that works for you. All organizing solutions are customized. I ask lots of questions to identify your needs and current obstacles. I then brainstorm with you to identify solutions that would work.

There are many good charities that can use your unwanted stuff. You can find a great list on the Keep Omaha Beautiful website.

I offer hands-on organizing services in the Omaha metro area. There is a fee for anything requiring additional travel. Virtual Organizing sessions are by phone and available to anyone anywhere.

I can help you virtually or travel wherever you need me, but if you prefer someone from your area,  go to the National Association of Productivity and Organizing (NAPO) website. NAPO has a directory of professional organizers in all corners of the world who can help.

I want to help you tackle those areas of your life that cause stress and make positive changes in your home, office, and family. To help you do this, I have compiled toolboxes on several different topics and created Freshly Organized Toolboxes  

Seasonal Checklists are also available and will provide a good starting point for you.
