Clients say to us all the time "I hate my closet," or "My tupperware drawer drives me crazy." As professional organizers, our job is to help you reclaim control of your everyday life. We want you to LOVE your closet. We want you to be able to reach into your drawer and match up your tupperware with ease. We want you be able to feel excited and when it comes to maintaining an organized home and lifestyle.
Top Shelf Organizers creates beautiful, Pinterest-worthy spaces in your home while teaching you the essential skills you need to be able to live an organized lifestyle that is sustainable for you and your family.
Why should i hire a professional organizer?
Organization doesn't come easily for everyone, and that's ok! People often don't know how to find the time to get organized, they don't know where to start, or they get overwhelmed after working on it for awhile. A professional organizer can help make the process easier by guiding, motivating, and identifying organizational systems that will work for you and your family. Outsourcing will allow you the time to do what you actually *want* to be doing, while still getting the job done.
Will you make me get rid of things?
Our job is to help you identify the items that you truly need, use, and make you happy. We won't make you get rid of anything you don't want to get rid of, but decluttering and purging some of the never-used or lesser-used items will result in a cleaner, more organized space at the end of the session. Purging and Decluttering are always encouraged, but never required.
How long does it take to get organized?
One of the most exciting parts of being a Professional Organizer is that every client is different and no two days are exactly the same. We like to say: "We're here to do a good job, not necessarily a fast job." The amount of time needed to get organized depends on the size of the space you want us to work on, your goals, the amount of clutter in that space, and how quickly we can go through and declutter, sort, and organize those items. The more productive and focused you are during the sessions (if choosing to work alongside us), the quicker it will go. However, it's also important to remember that this is an investment in yourself, your home, your life, and your future happiness. Spending a little extra time now will save you a lot of time and headaches later! During the home consultation, we can give you an idea of how many sessions we think it will take to tackle each space, but we can only estimate.
What happens during the Home Consultation/sessions?
Home Consultation: We will take a look at the space(s) you want us to organize, talk to you about your wants, needs, problem areas, and give you an estimate of how many sessions we think you'll need. At the end of the home consultation, we will schedule our first session.
Sessions: Step 1: We will work together to declutter and sort your belongings Step 2: Top Shelf Organizers will come up with a system that fits your wants and needs Step 3: Top Shelf Organizers will organize your belongings in the space Step 4: Top Shelf Organizers will give you a tour of your new space and teach you how to keep it organized Step 5: You get to enjoy your new space!

Can you help organize my home office?
We sure can!!
what if i feel EMBARRASSED by my mess?
When it comes to organizing, we've seen it all. We are here to help you, inspire you, and teach you. We want you to feel empowered by your decision to get organized, not embarrassed! You should never feel ashamed about asking for help! <3
Can my kids be home during the session?
We love kids! It's a good opportunity for your older children to be a part of the process and learn how to be more organized. Just keep in mind that if you have younger children who need constant supervision, it may slow down the process.
Can i start to organize before you get here?
We recommend that you wait until after the consultation to get a head start. This gives us the opportunity to see your home in its natural form. As Professional Organizers, there is a lot we can learn by seeing your space in its authentic state. It helps us observe and identify your daily habits, see what works and doesn't work for you in each space, and gives us a LOT of insight on how to create lasting organizational systems that you and your family will benefit from.
After the consultation, you are more than welcome to get a jump start on decluttering!
what are the benefits of getting organized?
Where do we even start? The list is endless, really! Getting organized will benefit you and your family for years to come! Here are a few specific ways organizing can benefit your life:
Save time: You will spend less time searching for things you need, and more time with friends and family.
Save money: You won't buy items you already have because you will know what you own.
Have less stress: You will find things easily, reducing stress and frustration.
Be more efficient: Your daily routines will be easier and more productive.
Clear your mind: You will feel renewed and relaxed in your home.
What if i need to cancel?
48 hours notice is required for rescheduling or canceling appointments.
With less than 48 hours notice, a fee of 50% of your session cost will be charged.
Cancellations made by Top Shelf with less than 48 hours notice will be credited at 100% (ex. if a 3 hour session is cancelled, 3 free hours will be provided to the client for future use).
If we show up to your home and nobody is there, we will wait 10 minutes.
After the 10 minute wait, we will contact you.
If we don't hear back from you within another 10 minutes, we will leave a note on your door letting you know we came for the appointment but nobody was there.
There will be a fee equal to 100% of the session cost for missed appointments.
I don't want to be part of the process, I just want it to get done.
That's totally ok! Organizing isn't as fun for everyone else as it is for us... we've got you covered! We really just need you for the decluttering and purging process. After you've helped us identify the items you no longer want/need, we can take care of the rest on our own.
If you choose to not be present during scheduled visits and allow us to work alone in your home, you must be available via phone for any questions we may have.
