Organization In Bloom on KMOV!

from Sarah S of Kirkwood, MO

I couldn’t be more pleased. Now I can actually find things! Terry really has a knack for organizing and making full use of storage space.

What does it cost? What do I get?

We offer our services in two main ways: Hourly or Pre-paid Packages.

Hourly

Sometimes you don’t know how far you want to go with a project or have a limited budget.  In these cases, hourly organizing sessions might be the choice for you.  There is a 3 hour minimum.

Pre-paid Packages

This is a great way to know your total costs from the very beginning. The scope of these sessions must be tightly controlled, of course, so we can be successful in hitting the target. Your Action Plan will spell out all the details, and we’ll have status checks throughout the process to stay on track.

 

Where do we start?

Before you sign anything or commit a single penny, we set up an Assessment and will make an Action Plan for your project. That serves as the road map for our work.

How long will it take?

The duration of any project depends on its scope, for example, the number of target areas, the contents of the area, and even the final state that our client envisions. Some projects we undertake can be completed in a 3 hour minimum session.  Larger projects take more time and sessions.  So much depends on how quickly you can make decisions and if you are willing to do “homework” between sessions.

If you want your office to be simpler to use, some clever techniques might get the results you want in just a few hours. If you’re moving after a lifetime in your home and have never cleared out anything in your large storage area, it may take considerably longer.

from Sheri R of Lee’s Summit, MO

When we were downsizing houses, Terry was very instrumental in helping us purge through our attic and bedroom closet.  In very practical and gentle ways she helped us decide garage sale items and keepsakes.  We made a great profit on our garage sale and donated over 30 bags of items to the Goodwill, which she also guided us to claim on our taxes! Terry has endless energy, but at the same time is very intuitive to your needs and timing.
