I am an organizing maven “one who understands.” But to be an organizing maven, I need to know more than just organizing. I have to know the components in what makes something “organized”. I didn’t become a “maven” overnight, but rather I’ve been doing it for over 23 years. Honing my skills and preparing myself for meeting you and changing your life!
I help my clients create SPACE:
Assign to a category
Enjoy your life!
The mental and physical clarity, is an after effect of my services. You will find yourself able to focus on the tasks you need to do. All your "tools" will be easy to access and put away after use.
This is a common question asked, I am not able to assess a project by the square feet. Your home might be very small, but the density of how much is in your home is the factor. I have done so many kitchens, closets, bedrooms, kids rooms, home offices, and garages. I can look at your kitchen and think back to other similar layouts of kitchens I have done in the past and remember those kitchens similar to yours took me 4-6-8 hours. So after I see your kitchen, and talk about your kitchen goals, I know that it will take me 6 hours to complete your kitchen from start to finish. I am the "maven" from experience not by measuring the square feet.
Plus I have to factor how quickly you are at being able to make decisions, and if you really want to work with a professional. You don't micromanage your doctor or dentist, so I ask for you to respect me as being a professional to organize your home.
Thank you for choosing Allison Almond as a partner to help you regain control and find peace and joy in your space. Before we begin working together, it is important to review the following terms, as it is helpful when both parties are clear on expectations. Your confidentiality and trust are of the upmost importance. Listed below are my terms of service that define my process and services.
Donations / Hazardous Chemicals / eWaste / Trash
Supplies and Shopping
I ask for the client to set a budget for each space. This allows me to utilize my skills to pick the best organizing items for YOUR home. I do not mark up products and I pass on my trade discounts to my clients. However, my clients need to view organizational items as an investment and not a way to cut costs. With inflation, fuel prices, and other factors involved. A low budget may result in either lesser quality items OR limits my options to get everything needed for your home.
I do not give refunds, when I am reimbursed for the items used.
Allison Almond recognizes items as the sole property of the Client, and though efforts will be made to help reduce the volume of belongings, when necessary, it is hereby stated that the final decision on such matters belongs to the Client.
Project outcomes depend on the Client’s willingness to participate in the process; sorting, editing, and donating when necessary. Also, the Client's ability to make quick decisions will play a factor on how long the project takes. My estimate is based on my 23 years of experience. I do my best to stay on task and stay within the estimted time to complete the project. My time clock starts when I arrive at your property, and ends when we close out for the day.
Confidentiality & Photo Release
The personal information of and in possession of the Client will be treated confidentially and with respect at all times. No personal or private information is ever shared with anyone else. This includes name, address, phone number. This includes when potential clients want a reference. Please see my Yelp! or Google reviews, for determining if my services will be a good fit for your project.
The Client releases all rights to before and after photos, to be used by Allison Almond for marketing purposes, including but not limited to website, social media, educational presentations, and pamphlets. Client identity and confidentiality will always be top priority in regards to photo usage.
Please understand that my estimates are a rough estimate for total cost, and should be used a guide for an possible outcome for this project.
