The cost of hiring a professional home organizer varies based on a number of factors, including the size of your home, the intricacy of the project, and the organizer’s level of experience. It kind of cracks me up when people call me asking about pricing without giving many details. It’s like asking a chef to make a dish without telling them what ingredients you have in your kitchen. It’s hard to know what to work with and what’s possible without knowing more about the specific situation. But, to give you some ranges Home organizing services are typically priced between $50 and $200 per hour.

Some organizers also provide project packages or flat fees. Before hiring a home organizer, it’s critical to discuss your budget and expectations in order to locate an organizer who can satisfy your vision.

Many people wonder if the cost of hiring a professional organizer is worth it. If your asking me 1000% YES!!! But, I may be a tad bit biased! The answer actually depends on your individual situation, the value of your time, and your needs. If you are feeling overwhelmed and stressed by clutter and disorganization, investing in a home organizer can provide you with valuable benefits. By creating a more organized living space, you can save time, reduce stress, and improve your overall well-being. Additionally, working with a professional organizer can help you develop sustainable habits that can help you maintain an organized home for years to come! Long-term benefits are ALWAYS a plus in my book!!

What Qualifies You as a Professional Organizer?

On a personal level, I am proud that I am one of a small number of people who are certified as a professional organizer by Marie Kondo—and after hundreds of hours in client homes, I know that I am able to help you learn the skills that I did. I am kind, gentle, and non-judgmental—but firm. I will build you up and reinforce your positive progress. A KonMari journey requires time, commitment, authenticity, and self-reflection. But I can tell you from personal experience that it is worth every minute of time and energy.

In a more general description, you want to look for someone with strong organizational skills, attention to detail, and a hunger to assist others. These are just a few of the qualities that can qualify a professional organizer. Also, many organizers have previous experience in areas such as interior design, project management, or counseling. Regardless of your experience, becoming an effective professional home organizer requires a commitment to ongoing learning as well as a desire to assist others in creating more functional and peaceful living spaces.

Have you ever seen how cluttered and disorganized spaces can make you feel tense and anxious? Like, you feel your heart pace looking at the shoes on the floor, toys scattered across the house, and dishes piling up.  As a professional home organizer, I’ve seen directly how decluttering can improve mental health in ways you can’t imagine! You can have a sense of calm and relaxation in your home by making it more organized. It’s remarkable how much lighter you can feel when you’re in a more peaceful and inviting environment. 

For instance, let’s call this client Jenna, Jenna had always struggled with clutter and chaos in her home. Her closets were overflowing with clothes (most she never even wore … sound familiar), her kitchen was cluttered with unused devices, and her home office was piled high with papers and files. She often felt overwhelmed and stressed out by the chaos of her, what should be, a peaceful home.

After getting fed up with failed attempts at minimalizing her home, that’s when Jenna decided to hire a professional home organizer. With the help of her organizer, she was able to let go of the items that were no longer serving her and create a more functional and peaceful living space. Her organizer worked with her to develop custom organizational systems that were tailored to her unique needs and lifestyle.

At times, the decluttering process was challenging for Jenna. She struggled to let go of certain items that held sentimental value or had been part of her life for a long time. But her organizer was patient and supportive throughout the process, and Jenna was ultimately able to create a more streamlined and organized home.

Now, Jenna’s home is a peaceful and inviting space. Her closets are neatly organized, her kitchen is clutter-free, and her home office is a functional and productive workspace. She no longer feels overwhelmed and stressed out by the chaos of her surroundings. Thanks to the help of her professional home organizer, she was able to transform her space and improve her overall well-being! 

And you guessed it .. her home organizer was ME! 

So, If you’re feeling overwhelmed by clutter and disorganization in your home, a professional home organizer can help. By creating custom organizational systems and providing valuable guidance and support, a certified home organizer can help you transform your living space and simplify your life.
