About Abbey Claire

Since I was strong enough to push my furniture around, I’ve been arranging and organizing, choosing to clean house rather than play house. I am continually refining my skills and broadening my knowledge of the latest developments in organizing solutions. From playful spaces for children to elegant solutions for adults, I offer a fresh eye and a calm mind to any project.

What happens during the initial consultation?

Consultations are currently done remotely due to COVID-19. We can meet via Zoom, FaceTime or Skype. Please be prepared to give me a virtual tour of your space. The initial consultation is our 1st opportunity to meet face to face. It’s also an opportunity for me to see your organizing situation first-hand. It usually takes about 30 minutes, during which I’ll ask you about what’s working for you and what isn’t; we’ll talk about your current routines and habits and what you’d like to see change. Please call for rate information.

How do you know where to get started in my home/office/garage?

Each client I work with has different needs. In the time between the initial consultation and the 1st organizing session I prepare an assessment based on information gathered during the consultation. The assessment is a tool I use to break the project down into manageable steps. At our first organizing session I will go over the assessment with you and we can decide where to begin.

What can I expect during an organizing session?

The first couple of sessions generally consist of sorting and purging. In order to “get organized” it’s important to know what you have.

Step 1 is sorting your “stuff” into manageable categories.

Then we go through each category and purge unused and unwanted items.

Once we’re done purging we decide the best place to store what’s left. And don’t worry, I’ll be with you every step of the way.

Will I have to throw all my stuff out?

In a word, no. I know how much your belongings mean to you, and I’m not here to “clean out” your stuff. I am here to work with you towards making your home a place where you feel comfortable and are able to function. Often, getting there means that some “stuff” will have to go – but I will never make the decision for you, we’ll work together to make the best decision for your goal.

Will you help me shop for items to improve my space?

Yes

What happens if I need to cancel an appointment?

Please let me know about a cancellation as soon as possible (at least 48 hours notice.)

Cancellations made with less than 48 hours notice will incur a cancellation fee.

What payment methods do you accept?

Organizing services are charged by session, 3 hour minimum per session. Please call for more information.

I accept cash, checks and credit cards.

Gift certificates are also available.

Can I purchase a gift certificate?

Yes, choose from  2, 3 or 5 hour organization sessions. Please call.

Do you design closets?

As an organizer, I do not ‘construct’ closet interiors. Instead, I redesign your closets by working with you to optimize the usage of the space that you have. If you are looking to rebuild your closets, I can also work with your contractor to create a highly practical and well-ordered dream closet.
