Why hire a professional organizer?
Professional organizers listen to your unique needs and challenges. At J&L home, we bring years of experience working with clients and we approach organizing with compassion, confidentiality, encouragement and fun. We break down the overwhelming feeling you may be experiencing into bite-size pieces all while keeping it lively and FUN.
Who can benefit from professional organizing?
Everyone! We hear a lot of clients say "I just can't get organized...I feel so overwhelmed." Trust us, you are not. Everyone can benefit including parents, children, downsizers, home sellers, those experiencing a loss or those who just need a little bit of help feeling at home in their space.
Is it worth the investment?
We sure think so! Decluttering and organizing can be transformative. We help provide you with instant results, as well as life-changing and long-term solutions. It's not about being perfect...it's about functionality and efficiency in a way that works for you. Think of it as a little self-care for your home in the same way you invest in self-care for your body and mind.
What spaces do you organize?
You name it. We work in any space in your home including pantries, kitchens, closets, bedrooms, attics, basements and more! We also do your home office, your business office and your storage units.
What can I expect on consult?
During the initial phone/virtual consult we will discuss your unique challenges and needs along with our approach. We may ask you to email or text us some photos of your space(s) to help us come up with a plan. We typically start our clients with a three-hour session to get started, though depending on the scope of services, we may also schedule an in-home consultation. We are totally cool and flexible. Remember....this can be FUN!
What happens at the first session?
We come with upbeat attitudes, tunes, cool t-shirts, an open-mind and NO judgment. You don't need to purchase anything in advance. We aim to find solutions in things that already exist in your home but at times we may also suggest some items to purchase that will help optimize your space.
Do I have to be part of the process?
Of course. You are awesome. Why wouldn't we want to work with you? Working in your home can be a very personal experience for you. We are here to coach you with decluttering and organizing. It's not always easy to decide what to keep and we are here to listen and guide you. There are definitely times that you can go off on your own and let us do our magic, but expect the first session to be hanging with us.
Do you recycle and help with donations?
Absolutely! We do our best to connect you with local businesses who will help with services like junk haul-out, at-home secure shredding services and recycling. We love to help our community.
Ok...but can I still have a junk drawer?
We don't know anyone who doesn't have a junk drawer. It's a rite of adulthood. We have one, too. We just help you to keep it organized so you know where things are and give you a system to contain it.
Are you cleaners and movers?
We pride ourselves on bringing you a team of experienced and professional organizers. While we will definitely wipe down your shelves or vacuum up a room when we are finished, we are not professional cleaners. But we can recommend one if you need! Same goes for the heavy boxes and furniture....we are happy to help you find a third party junk removal service or schedule a dumpster for your declutter if needed.
We can't wait to work with you!!
