Let’s Take Care of this Problem

The first step towards an organized home is to set up your free 30 minute consultation.

If you were hiring someone to come fix the furnace, you wouldn’t need to meet them first. But hiring an organizer is very personal. You’ll be showing me the areas of your home you most likely hide from others so it’s important that you feel comfortable with me.

This consultation is a chance for you to see for yourself that I won’t judge you, for me to get a sense of the scope of your project and for us both to make sure we’re a good fit.

Because of the current COVID-19 situation, we’ll schedule your consultation via a phone call or a Zoom meeting. If you need help setting up Zoom, let me know. As long as you have a computer or a laptop with a built in camera (usually top center of the screen), Zoom will work for you.

Please take some photographs of your space and the areas of concern ahead of time and email them to me before we chat.

When people tell me they’re disorganized and the place is an absolute mess, I’ve learned that can mean anything from a few magazines out of place on the coffee table and a pile or two on the kitchen counters to a completely full house with goat paths and nowhere for a visitor to sit down. Sharing photos gets us on the same page right away so we can focus more quickly on what you need.

Please don’t tidy up before you take the pictures. They’re for helping us assess your needs, not a reflection on you. You wouldn’t hide leaking faucets from a plumber, cavities from the dentist or problems from a therapist. Just like those professionals, an organizer is there to help, not judge.

During our phone or Zoom call, I’ll ask you to tell me your clutter story and discuss your goals with me. Who’s pushing you to contact me? How invested are you in the process? What does organized look and feel like for you? Have you tried other organizers before and how did that go?

As things get back to normal, I’ll be updating this page but no matter what the situation is, your health and safety are always my top priority. Many of my clients are 65 and older, so a virtual consultation like this helps us set up ground rules for in person work that’ll keep us all safe.

Ready to banish clutter and live your life? Call Lucy Kelly at (720) 526-2114,  email me at lucy@joyfulsurroundingsllc.com or fill out this form to schedule your free 30 minute consultation.
