“For every minute spent in organizing, an hour is earned.” ~~ Benjamin Franklin
There are many facets to organizing. Let us help you with:
organizing - kitchens, closets, pantries, basements, kid's spaces, storage areas, garages, laundry rooms, bedrooms
preparing your home for sale
moving into a new home
home office - setting this space up efficiently and effectively
businesses - work spaces, entrances, paper management, filing systems, process flow
Senior transitioning may involve moving a parent into a smaller living space such as an apartment or condo, or into a retirement home or long-term care residence.
Transitioning to a new home can be very stressful for anyone but especially for seniors who may be afraid or resistant to change. This is a difficult time and we are here to help. With a sensitive and respectful approach, we work closely with the homeowner and their family to ensure that the transition is as seamless and stress-free as possible.
Clutter in any type of space inherently creates chaos, and chaos creates a stressful and undesirable environment. Getting rid of clutter is hard, but keeping it makes life even harder.
Dealing with clutter can be overwhelming and many people don't know where to begin. That's where we come in. We'll create an organized and more manageable environment, leaving you with a pleasant and peaceful living and working space.
Sometimes you don't know how much weight a chaotic environment carries, until it's been lifted.
Lee Anna is certified in Lean Six Sigma Management and has successfully led several 5S projects. 5S is a methodology that creates a workplace that is clean, uncluttered, safe and well organized to help reduce waste and optimize productivity. 5S involves five steps: Sort, Set in order, Shine, Standardize and Sustain. Proven 5S projects in the workplace have successfully achieved effective and more efficient work environments. These principles apply at home as well.
Offices today take on a new form as many work settings have transitioned to home offices. We can assist with organizing your home office and we'll work with you to choose the best design for your new normal.
Paperwork is an important part of a small business and handling it can be a stressful part of your day. Tax forms, bank information, receipts and filing systems need to be organized to help your business run more smoothly. We can help you manage it all.
Managing Your Move
Why pay to move items that are no longer needed or don't fit into your new space? We can create a space-effective plan for your new home or office, and assist you with purging what is no longer required. Purging before you move saves time and money and helps to create a clear vision of the work required to pack and transport your items, and to set up your new space.
Pre-move purges can happen months in advance of when you actually plan to relocate and reduces a stressful rush on your moving date.
The loss of a loved one is a very difficult time for family and friends. This is often a time when your attention is required in many areas, and we can support you with the sensitive task of clearing the home.
With compassion and understanding we will respectfully work with your family and estate executors to assist with designating items for loved ones, sorting, purging, packing items for family, or donating to your preferred charitable organization.
Selling Your Home
Decluttering and re-arranging your space will help showcase your home to its full potential. With more open space, buyers can visualize how their belongings will fit into your home. Also, by decluttering before you sell, there's less to transport and pack on moving day. Whether you wish to sell in a few months or even a year, starting the decluttering process early will help to reduce stress when it's time to list.
Let us help you to visualize a cleaner, de-cluttered, and visually appealing space when you're ready to prepare your home for sale. We will work with your own home furnishing to create the best possible showing.
We work with you closely throughout the entire process to ensure that the work is timely, professional and on track with your requirements and expectations. We continue to communicate directly with you as we progress.
We take pride in our work, and as part of striving to meet your needs, it is important for us to follow up with our clients after the work has been completed. Our check-in will help you to maintain your newly organized space and ensure that you know we are always available to assist with its sustainability.
