I am located in New York City, and I travel anywhere within Manhattan, the Bronx, Astoria, Long Island City, and Northern Brooklyn. If you live outside that area and are interested in my services, contact me. A travel fee may apply.
Sessions are booked on an hourly basis, with a 3 hour minimum and 6 hour maximum in one day. We will start by taking a tour of your home and I will listen to what you think works well in your home, and what doesn’t. Every person and family is different, so I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. We will create an action plan to tackle your needs. I work extremely efficiently, so you should ideally start to see great progress after one session. Don’t be surprised if I give you homework to complete by our next session 😉 Before your next session, I will make sure you have the organizational tools needed to complete the process (storage bins, etc.).
As much as I would love to, it is extremely difficult to estimate without seeing your space and working together for a couple of hours. This is why my pricing is based on the hour, instead of by room or project. Every home and person is unique. I work very efficiently, and once you’ve learned my process, things will progress more quickly.
For the first session, I require you to be there with me as we go through your belongings. It’s impossible for me to know what to keep and what to donate because they aren’t my possessions, and I want you to be a part of that process. There are many home renovation TV shows that surprise a homeowner with a completely new, organized house. This makes for great TV, but in my opinion, is not very realistic. By working together, I will teach you organizing techniques that you can use in every space of your home, and we will decide where your beloved possessions get to live within your home. The best system is one that we create together.
Yup, it’s all gotta go!
Just kidding! Of course not. I willhave you take a good look at all of your belongings and help you decide what to keep and what to let go. I am an extremely sentimental person, so I understand how difficult it can be to part with your possessions. What is special and important to one person may not be to another. My goal is help you get to a place where you will easily know what items are worth keeping and what are not.
I will only organize those who are willing. Organizing isn’t a one day event. It is a lifestyle that my clients adopt after working with me. And while you may wish your messy spouse would start picking up after themselves, they probably wouldn’t be too happy to find out that a stranger went through their things without their knowledge.
That said, if you know someone who wants to get organized I am happy to facilitate a “surprise” of sorts. Contact me to chat!
Most people don’t want to spend time researching where to donate their used possessions, so I can help with that. I’ve curated a list of charities throughout the NYC area that accept clothing, kids toys, household items and more. You are welcome to drop-off donations yourself, or I can arrange for a donation pick-up (my regular hourly rates apply).
Absolutely! tidyspot services are not limited to homes. Please reach out so we can discuss your office organizational needs.
Definitely! Moving is the perfect time to declutter and let go of items in your home that you no longer love. We can help you declutter, donate, and sell anything you don't want to bring with you. We are also happy to advise you throughout your move regarding packing techniques and ways to make the entire process easier.
The answer is likely no. Not by a long shot ;-)
tidyspot is a professional home organizing service, and aside from a quick wipe-down of a shelf, we do not clean homes.
I would never, ever do anything to break a client’s trust. Remember, I am there to help you, not judge you.
