In-Home Consulation at No Charge

Home organizing makes your home a sanctuary ... your space, your way. Clutter and disorganization can create powerful feelings of frustration, anxiety, and paralysis. We can help you transform the rooms of your home into peaceful spaces that function well to support the activities that happen in them, instead of hampering them.

We’ll take care of whatever in your home needs organizing and get it done. Our goal is to create a more functional, peaceful and harmonious environment that reduces your stress and results in greater comfort. We will spend the time with you explaining ways you can maintain a clutter-free space, and if needed provide periodic visits.

A professional organizer & staging expert helps you keep your home easier to live in and ready, if you want to sell. This is one of the many services we provide.

Home organizing & staging

Over the years, we all collect so many things. Some we need; some we don’t. There are even things that we think we’ll need, and then it works out that they weren’t as needed as we originally thought they were.

Are the closets in your bedrooms always messy? Is your garage or basement an assortment of disorganized ‘stuff’ you’ve collected over the years? Do your kitchen counters fill up because they have become the ‘catch all’ for your mail and things in daily life?

At Overwhelmed, How Can I Help, we specialize in home organization and staging. Our goal is to help you make your home easier to live in (without the clutter) or to get it ready to sell, if you are so inclined.

Home organizing

Home organizing is simply a system for arranging and establishing the items in your home in a way that is proper and methodical. It is about functionality, ease of use and convenience. Our schedules, our time, and our lifestyles may not give us the ability to take the time needed to set up those systems in our own homes. This is where we step in!

Our specialists at Overwhelmed, How Can I Help? will do just that! We will come up with proper systems that not only function well for you but will also look appealing and provide you with a stress-free environment. You’ll know where everything is, and everything will be in its place.

There are many spaces in a house that home organization can help you in your daily life, including:

  • Kitchens
  • Pantries
  • Closet organizing
  • Game rooms
  • Offices
  • Living rooms
  • Bedrooms
  • Bathrooms
  • Laundry areas
  • And, more.

Our simple 3-step home organization process

We can get it organized! We will use a simple 3 step process with you to achieve the order you have been longing for.

  1. Work with you to discard any unwanted items
  2. Determine the best use of space for you
  3. Create a new system that works!

All of this sounds simple but having a professional help you organize your home can reduce so much stress you may have in daily life; more than what you’re aware of. Don’t put it off longer. Your home should be that place of tranquility that you have always imagined!

Our home organizing process

On our first visit to your home, we will review each room, make notes, and then create a list of recommendations to help improve the organization of your rooms. The changes we specify will not only help increase the usability of your home spaces, but also help provide a relaxing and calming space for you and your family.

We will put this information into a contract for work, which will include many of the details and options, along with a price. We will provide this to you in one of the ways you, either in-person or via email. You will need to sign the contract for us to schedule the work.

Once the contract is signed, we will schedule the work and our team of organizing professionals will be at your home to complete your home organization.

Many times, during the organizing process, people decide they would like new storage ideas, different furnishings, or other items to increase how organized their home looks. We’re happy to make suggestions, if they fall in-line with the work that we’ve outlined in the contract.

Corporate, office or home office organizing

If your company runs an office building (or has several offices), does your staff having trouble finding everything that is needed for daily work? Are there clear logistics and organization for your employees to follow?

If the answer is, “No,” then our office organizing services may be perfect for you.

Our office organization systems can help you and your employees get the most out of your workspaces and improve efficiency.

What will a professional organizer do?

When you invite a professional organizer into your home to help you, we’ll take the time to:

  • Talk with you about problem areas of your home (clutter, access, etc.)
  • Specific issues you may be experiencing
  • Functionality or efficiency you would like to have

Once we’ve done some analysis in your home, we’ll design a great system for you and your family to use, so your home works much better for you. Not only will your newly organized home be easier to live in, but it will also be much more enjoyable and relaxing.

Most professional organizers will tell you they adhere to the idea of, “Keep it. Toss it. Donate it.” Meaning, helping you go through much of your stuff will be so much easier, since there are only three options.

One of our professional organizers will help ensure your home or office is neat, organized and a much more peaceful environment. This will help reduce the stress associated with being in these environments.

Home staging

If you are looking to create the perfect space entertaining, to sell your home or just improve the overall look and feel of your home environment, then home staging is a great solution.

Home staging involves the work of creating the right look for every room in your home, from furniture to artwork to organization. Our attention to detail will help ensure that each room will look its best for your event or showing.

One important fact to note is that furnished, staged homes sell faster. We will reorganize your furnishings, lighting, wall hangings and accessories to ensure each room has the right touch to make it look great. We also will declutter and (in the case of a home for sale) depersonalize it, so it will allow potential buyers to have a great first impression and envision themselves in your home.

Home staging services vary by type, style, and size of homes. We will create the right plan that works for your property and family.

On the first visit we will tour your house to discuss the changes that need to take place, as well as pointing out the repairs and furniture relocation. Changes that will help accentuate and maximize the space of your property so that prospective buyers realize its full potential and value.

Our home staging process

On our first visit to your home, we will review each room, make notes, and create a list of recommendations to help improve the overall ‘feeling’ of each room. These changes will not only help increase the appeal of the rooms, but also will increase the feeling of comfort and neatness. Ultimately this work will increase the chances that someone will want to spend time in your home. (I.e., As a buyer or guest.)

We will put this information into a contract for work, which will include many of the details and options, along with a price. We will provide this to you in one of the ways you, either in-person or via email. You will need to sign the contract for us to schedule the work.

Once the contract is signed, we will schedule the work and our team of home staging professionals will be at your home to complete your project.

During the staging process, we will make suggestions and have discussions around:

  • New or different furnishings or art
  • New or different accessories
  • Storage and organizing ideas
  • And, more

Many times, during a home staging project, additional work will come up, such as painting rooms, wall repairs, cleaning, landscaping, or simple modifications. We can help ensure that each of these are done with the help of our professional network of providers.

If keeping holiday traditions is important, then look no further.  We would be glad to decorate and then take down and put away your interior decorations at the end of the season.
