rates & packages

fairy wandWe grant busy families’ wishes for time, space and simplicity.

We offer two ways to purchase our organizing services: single-session and multi-session packages. You do not need to decide right now. At the end of your first session, we can discuss the scope of your project and figure out which option will best meet your needs and budget.

We can work with just about any budget. Rates vary from $50–$70 per hour, depending upon how many hours you purchase and the type of services you require (hands-on organizing, unpack/set-up services, or DIY consulting-only). At your request, we can even add an assistant organizer to larger jobs for super-speedy progress, at an additional rate of just $30-$35 per hour. We would love to work with you at any frequency, whether we meet just once, a few times, or on an on-going maintenance basis. The first step is a free initial phone consultation to get to know each other and answer your questions, so please call us at (651) 717-1284 to get started!


Quick-Wave Session

3 hours
(1 three-hour session):
(3 hour minimum) 


This is a great opportunity for you to work one-on-one with an experienced professional organizer! In three hours, we could complete a small organizing project (such as a closet, bathroom, or entryway) or begin a larger-scale project (such as a kitchen, bedroom, or home office). We begin our session with an in-home assessment and then dive in to make life-changing improvements in the area of your choice. The Quick-Wave session includes sorting, decluttering, storage solutions, and organizing skills education as needed. At the end of this session, you may opt to upgrade to a cost-effective organizing package, schedule another 3-hour Quick-Wave session, or continue on your own with the knowledge you’ve gained from our time together.

Do-It-Yourself Consultation

90 minutes: $150

This is a great option for self-starters who are on a limited budget. If you have the drive and basic organizing know-how to tackle an organizing project on your own, we’ll get you started! We will conduct a 60-90 minute in-home assessment. During that time, we will write up an action plan to move you forward. The action plan will provide a general outline for your project, helping you prioritize your organizing tasks. We are happy to give organizing product recommendations, furniture placement suggestions, and donation resources at this time. A 15-minute phone call follow-up is included in this package, to be used within one month of the in-home consultation. This will give you accountability and also allow you to ask any questions that pop up during your project.


Single-Space mini Session

75 minutes: $99

This quick session gives you a chance to meet your professional organizer face-to-face in your home. You’ll receive a 30-minute assessment of one space in your home, followed by a 45-minute mini-organizing session (75 minutes total.) This is your chance to see an organizer in action! We’ll help you determine a small space to work on, such as a kitchen cupboard, small pile of papers, or entryway closet. This short session will give you an opportunity to see if working with a professional organizer is right for you, as you learn the basics of sorting, decluttering, and storing. (Limited areas and times only. Please contact us to see if your city is included in this offer.)
