Our Unique Process

Frequently Asked Questions

An Abundance Organizing consultant will conduct a needs assessment in your home. The assessment is a chance for us to learn about your goals and needs, evaluate the space, and work with you to identify the scope of the project. While in your home, your consultant will provide suggestions and offer resources as you work together to begin planning your project. Your consultant will prepare a custom action plan for your review and approval.

It’s always your decision whether our services are the right fit for you. There is no obligation to schedule sessions with our team after the initial assessment. 

The Certified Professional Organizer credential is held by professionals who have demonstrated that they are on the cutting edge of the industry. CPOs earn their credential by proving they embody the founding principles, have the requisite experience, adhere to the BCPO Code of Ethics, and comprehend the entire body of knowledge required to pass the Board of Certification for Professional Organizers® (BCPO®) examination. In order to become a CPO, members must provide documentation of 1,500 hours of paid work experience as a professional organizer within five years prior to applying. Additionally CPOs must agree to adhere to the highest ethical standards, and successfully pass a standardized exam with more than 100 multiple choice questions. Recertification, by CEUs or re-examination, is required every three years.

There’s no required preparation. Please don’t feel you need to tidy your home before we arrive; it’s helpful for us to see your home in its natural state. 

Before your assessment, it’s a good idea to walk through the spaces on which you’d like to focus. Identify what kinds of items you have, your goals for the project, and potential problems. Having key knowledge up front allows us to go deeper with our initial analysis and better plan ahead. Most importantly, the day of any session with Abundance Organizing, we suggest you adhere to regular self-care routines that nourish your body, mind, and psyche.

Our unique methodologies and on-the-job communication protocols ensure that clients who experience anxiety or ADHD can remain focused and never feel overwhelmed while the work gets done. 

No! We understand that everyone’s lifestyle is different. As the client, you’re in the driver’s seat, especially when it comes to downsizing decisions. We use our expertise to provide perspective and support through the decision-making process. It’s our job to make sure you’re fully informed about all of your options and remind you of your goals; the final call is always up to you.

It depends. Every project and person is different. Depending on your goals and budget, you can start with a small task and one or two sessions to test the waters or jump in for a weeks-long project! 

While we can have your household systems fine-tuned and expertly organized in a matter of a few sessions, we’re proponents of the idea that true “organization” is a process–  not a static solution. Staying organized requires habit-building and constant maintenance efforts, some small and regular, some bigger and more time-consuming. The longer we work together, the bigger the difference we can make. As we gain more insight on your challenges, we do our best to educate you on the principles and practices that you can use on your own to maintain your ideal level of organization. 

Many clients find that, over time, they benefit from tune-ups to get things back into shape again as life happens. We suggest regular maintenance plans for those who want more regular check-ins after their initial project to avoid backsliding. 

The cost of your project will vary based on the number of days and the size of the team. We will always work with you to find the best options for your budget. 

Professional organizing is a thriving, diverse industry. Each organizer and/or organizing company independently determines their own rates based on a reasonable evaluation of their skills, training, specialty, and standard scope of work. As with most professions, service providers with more experience will command a higher rate than those with less experience. By using a team approach, organizing companies can accomplish your projects more efficiently and more effectively than a solo provider due to the level of experience and shared knowledge of the group, however they often can charge lower rates per individual. 

Other factors that will always increase value and improve the quality of results: professional affiliations, continuous improvement, certifications/credentials, proper insurances, ethical standards, employee satisfaction, strong partnerships, and exceptional customer service.

You’re not alone. Most people who seek professional organizing services for the first time deal with nerves and anxiety about the decision. We understand that it’s a big deal to invite strangers into your home. Know that our team is highly trained, compassionate, and dedicated to meeting you wherever you are. If you’re still unsure or just curious, a phone call can answer a lot of your questions. We’re always happy to help!

We understand that life happens. We do our best to work with you when unexpected changes need to be made. If you need to cancel or reschedule a session, you can do so up to five business days before the session at no extra charge. If you need to cancel or reschedule within five business days or fewer, a fee will be deducted from your initial deposit. Applicable fees are discussed during the Planning Phase.

While voluntary and never expected, tipping is welcome and appreciated if you feel that your organizers have performed above and beyond your expectations.
