The Cost of Getting Organized

by Tina ~ April 10th, 2013.

solution note with pushpinIs getting organized something you’ve wanted to cross off your list? Need help doing it, but are worried about what it might cost? Here are a few facts and figures to help you decide if it’s in your budget.

A 3-hour session ($240) gets most people started with sorting a couple of closets, an entryway and closet, or a kitchen.  I’ve never left a client’s place after a 3-hour session where they haven’t said “Wow, what a difference!”

An office sort and plan creation is usually 3-6 hours ($250-$500).

We just organized a basement for a family of four for $1,200, which had us putting up 10 sets of resin shelves in order to house all of their boxes of files, mementos, seasonal decor, books, school papers, family treasures, gift wrap and gifts, electronics, and hardware.

WholeHome™ organizing can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $3,000 – it’s very dependent on the size of your house and how much stuff you have.  The most common areas we do are closets, kitchen cabinets, usually a toy room of some sort, and an office.

We sort, help you identify things you no longer need, containerize, offer a plan for additional storage pieces where needed, and provide a list of suggested items to buy.  We can also source and purchase those products if you like, as well as moving your items out of their temporary containers and into specific bins and so on in order to personalize your space.

My suggestion is to be “in the solution, not thinking about the problem.”  Often working with a Professional Organizer can kick start that process.

If you have any other questions about working with a professional organizer, leave a comment or contact me directly for a personal consultation.
