Got Questions? 

How do I get the process started?

First of all - congratulations on taking the first step towards a clutter-free life! We can’t wait to get to know you! All of our services begin with a free virtual consultation so we can talk about your goals, do a virtual walk through of your space, and provide a personalized quote based on your needs.

What exactly do you do?

I say hello to your clutter, so that you can say goodbye to it! I partner with each of my clients to teach and guide them through the process of decluttering and organizing their homes and offices - leaving them feeling free! I have found that so many individuals were never taught how to tidy up their spaces in an effective way that helps them live a decluttered life, so I'm here to help!

How does the process work?

We have broken down how to get organized into our own 5-step process whether we do in-person or virtual sessions!

1. Consultation + Goal Setting
We’ll take a look at your space virtually, discuss your goals, talk about the services we offer, and find the best solution for you!
2. Sort 
We take out every item from the space we’re organizing and sort into categories. - This will help you with making the decisions on what to keep, toss, or donate (and we’re there to support you the whole way!)!
3. Declutter
Time to say goodbye to the items that aren’t serving you! We even take away your donations and take that extra step off your plate (one car load per session).
4. Organize
We come up with a personalized organization plan that is going to work for YOU (and your family!). Our systems are easy to maintain, and will fit any design style and price point you’re looking for.
5. Maintain
From there - it’s time to keep things tidy! If you need extra support here, we also offer monthly maintenance packages to lessen the work you need to put in!

Should I tidy up before you come?

Please don’t! In fact, we’d prefer if you didn’t that way we can see how your space typically looks and how you’re currently functioning in it. We NEVER judge, so please don’t feel the need to hide your true self. Our goal is to find a solution that will work for you, so it helps to see it in it’s true form!

Are you going to make me get rid of all of my things?

No (but a little bit yes). Although this is always something my clients worry about, it is one of the most important parts of this process. I only want you to be surrounded both by what is serving you, and what fits well in your home. You can't have more stuff than what holds in your house, so you're going to have to depart with some things. However, these are your items and therefore your decisions; I am there to simply aid the process and be your accountability partner along the way!

What should I do with the items I say goodbye to?

I have quite a few options for you on this front. I will help you decide what should be disposed of (trash, items not worthy of donation), and what should be donated. With each session I will take a complimentary car-load of your donation items to their appropriate destination (if you have a favorite donation center!). If you choose to donate and would like a tax receipt, I will return that to you.

How long will my transformation take?

Every home and every client is different. The in-home consultation will allow me to assess and give an estimate to how much time we will need! The size of your home, the amount of items you own, and how quickly you can decide if you would like to discard or keep your items will determine how long your home may take. I have estimates for each space based on my experience so we can decide what package will be best for you and your goals.

What about organizational products and supplies?

Clients are responsible for paying for all agreed-upon supplies necessary for the completion of the project. We can create personalized product lists for what supplies should be purchased and the client can do the shopping, or we will shop and purchase supplies and make arrangements to have those supplies delivered to the client's location for implementation. Product expenses are to be reimbursed by the client at the time of service.

Do you only work in Raleigh?

I will work within most areas in the Triangle, and for a fee can travel outside of the Greater Raleigh Area! If you are outside of the Triangle and would like to inquire about my services, please fill out the Contact Form and we can discuss what options will work for you (in-person or virtual!).

What is Virtual Organizing?

Virtual Organizing is the process of getting organized through remote sessions led by Sarah. These sessions are held via Zoom or FaceTime. Sarah will work 1:1 with you to help set and accomplish your organizing goals, offer support, product selection, and beyond!

Sarah is a master of objectively helping you

see your stuff for what it is. She has an easy streamlining process for whittling down the volume to a manageable, organized representation of the things you need, the things you love and the things that just don’t need to be around any longer.

hiring Sarah has been the best investment 

I’ve made for my health and happiness. She helped organize my cluttered craft room and turned it into a clean, functional workspace. She asked all the right questions and was supportive and helpful in all the right areas. I felt like my needs were her primary focus.

Sarah from Hello Clutter completely changed my life

and the way I feel being at home. Being able to not feel so stressed or guilty when being in my space has allowed me to feel more successful (while working from home) and connected (to my significant other) in my life unlike ever before.
