hello questions

What exactly do you do?

I say hello to your clutter, so that you can say goodbye to it! I partner with each of my clients to teach and guide them through the process of decluttering and organizing their homes and offices - leaving them feeling free! I have found that so many individuals were never taught how to tidy up their spaces in an effective way that helps them live a decluttered life, so I'm here to help!

Are you going to make me get rid of all my belongings?

No (but a little bit yes). Although this is always what my clients worry about the most, it is one of the most important parts of this process. I only want you to be surrounded both by what you love and what fits in your home. You can't have more stuff than what holds in your house, so you're going to have to depart with things. However, these are your decisions; I am there to simply aid the process and teach everything I can in the time we are together.

Should I start before you come for the in-home consultation?

Please don't. I want to see your home in its typical order. There is absolutely no judgement on my end, and for me to help you to my fullest capacity, it is most beneficial to start from scratch.

What should I expect during our first session?

We will dive right in! Before our first official session, we will have already done the in-home consultation and purchased any product that you might want, and we will be ready to go! Typically I work in 3-5 hour sessions (decluttering can be physically and mentally exhausting for my clients), but we will work with your schedule!

What will I do with all of the things I need to depart with?

I have quite a few options for you on this front. Whether you choose to throw items away or donate them. With each session I will take a car-load of your donation items to their appropriate destination. If you choose to donate and would like a tax receipt, I will return that to you.

How long will this take?

Every home and every person are different. The in-home consultation will allow me to assess and give an estimate to how much time we will need! The size of your home, the amount of items you own, and the internal process in deciding if an item is something you would like to discard or keep will determine how long your home may take. Whether you are willing to complete tasks while I am not there will also affect how long the process will last.

Do you only work in Raleigh?

I will work within most areas in the Triangle. If you are outside of the Triangle and would like to inquire about my services, please feel free to fill out the Contact Form and we can discuss what may work for us.

What COVID-19 precautions are you taking?

Hello Clutter is taking COVID-19 very seriously, and safety is our top priority. I will wear a mask throughout all in-person steps of the process, hand sanitize regularly, and disinfect all surfaces and items before finding them their perfect spot in your home! I also have a pre-session screening form for clients to complete prior to in-person services.
