Let's Have a Conversation
We start with a complimentary phone consultation to discuss the project you have in mind. Either we set up an on-site appointment or you send us some pictures so we can assess the situation better. At that point, there will probably be some more discussion and we set up an appointment to get started. Sessions can run from 3-6 hours, depending on circumstances.
Our Home Organization Services and How They Work
Donna Declutter’s professional organizing services include home organizing, whether it’s your garage, kitchen, closets, home office or the entire home.
Once we clear away the clutter, we’ll set up systems to help you stay organized. It's easy to use so you know where to look for things, where to store things and when to let go.
We’ll even cart away a car’s worth of stuff for donations after every visit and provide you with a receipt for tax deduction.
Different Ways We Can Work with You
As a Santa Rosa organizer, we customize our services to help you organize your home in the way that works best for you. Below are several options to choose from.
Sorting it Out
We can work with you to sort through the piles. whether it’s too many clothes, papers, years of accumulation of stuff, we can help you make decisions about what to keep, discard, or organize so you can find it when you want it.
If you want a do-it-yourself (DIY) plan, we can use our expertise to design a plan of action to get you started. Then you take it from there, using our support only when and if you need it.
If you are too busy to do it yourself but need to get it done, we can begin with a consultation. We find out from you what we need to know so we can act as a personal assistant, do the work and just ask questions here and there to keep the process going.
If you need help with rearranging your space, putting in custom closets or shelving, we know how to get it done. Our goal is to remove the stress and have you say “aaaahhhh” when you walk into your home!
"Seriously, it is so nice to reach for something to wear and find it clean and unrumpled. I’m very grateful and especially appreciate your managing to finish in a day and leave my already stuffed calendar some unexpected free time.”
Wine Cellar Management
Keeping track of your treasured wines can be tricky. When is the best time to drink that bottle?
We work with wine pros to properly determine the right "drink by" date. It's no fun to open a bottle and find it's "over the hill."
It can be frustrating to not be able to find that special bottle you wanted to serve tonight. We can help you keep track of every bottle's location in your cellar.
Donna Declutter is your personal organizing professional. Our dedication to keeping an orderly home helps us help you with your wine collection as well.
We will provide you with your choice of an electronic inventory, paper inventory, or simply clearly marked tags to identify the important information on every bottle you collect.
It's not uncommon for even modest collections to reach a value in the thousands of dollars, so isn't it worth it to ensure you receive the maximum enjoyment from every bottle?
