What is Virtual Organizing?
Virtual organizing is a one-on-one session with an expert organizer that lasts roughly 2 hours. Communication is done via video conference and telephone/email (as needed). The organizer provides guidance and structure to accomplish an organizing goal while you put the plan to action.
What are some of the benefits of virtual organizing?
- If you need assistance at work we can work discreetly. No one has to know.
- You have total control over what we see and don’t see
- Distractions are reduced because we work one-on-one
- You will use your auditory, visual, kinesthetic and verbal processing skills so you remain focused and absorb information better which creates good sustainable habits.
- We focus on one project at a time
- Sessions are brief, making them easy to implement into your day.
- If you can’t always have us in your home virtual sessions are a great supplemental service to help you maintain momentum on projects.
- Accountability is always good.
How do I know if virtual organizing is right for me?
If you have difficulty finishing organizing projects or if you have the stamina to organize but just don’t know where to begin virtual organizing is a great fit for you.
If you’re too embarrassed to have someone in your home virtual organizing can be a great solution because you are in control of what the organizer sees.
If you have difficulty staying focused virtual organizing has many benefits. Sessions are brief, one-on-one and only one project is completed at a time.
If you have several rooms that are unusable due to the amount of clutter you have virtual organizing may NOT be the best fit.
What does a session look like?
If you are using our services for the first time we will do a short phone intake before a session is booked. We will ask you a few questions to get a full understanding of your goals and needs. We will review our client agreement and schedule our first session.
Sessions are two hours in length. Generally, the first 45 minutes you give us a virtual tour of your space, we collaborate and develop a plan together, and provide you with strategies. You start organizing and we provide guidance and answer questions as you work. Then you continue to work for one hour while we remain offline but available as needed. In the last 15 minutes, we discuss any roadblocks, celebrate successes and book your next session.

What if I need products to organize my stuff?
Your organizer will provide you with a list of products that you can order. Some products are available in our warehouse in Richmond. For a small fee, we will deliver any products we have in stock. Other items can be ordered and mailed to your home.
What happens to the items I decide to donate or toss?
We can coordinate a donation pick up for a small fee or direct you to where to drop items for donation. If large items are being thrown away we can coordinate hauling services to pick up. The hauling company will call to explain their fees and process.
Can I hire you to come to my home and do the organizing for me?
Yes! We love to work with all of our clients in person. With the current restrictions due to COVID-19 we are offering virtual services. We will gladly come to your home and work when things get back to normal again. For now, virtual organizing is a great way for current clients to maintain what we have been working on when in the home, and for new clients to get comfortable with us before having us in. Or we don’t have to enter your home at all and we can work virtually indefinitely if it suits you better.
Can you organize my kid(s) virtually?
Yes! We can occupy your children and help them get their spaces organized too. Sessions work just as they would with an adult. The bonus is you can take time for yourself and your kid(s) can learn organizing skills.
What technology is needed to work virtually?
We use Webex for our conference calls. You don’t need special software or equipment to have a virtual call via Webex. You will need a desktop computer, iPad/Tablet, or a smartphone. When we set up the meeting, you will be given instructions on how to access the call.
What does the service cost?
$125 for a single 2 hour session. Three 2 hour sessions for $300.
