WHAT ARE DIY KITS & IS IT THE BEST ORGANIZING OPTION FOR YOU?
I often times get inquiries from potential clients that go something like this: “I really like to organize but I don’t know where to start and just need some help.” I totally understand that feeling and have definitely been in the same situation myself.
I’ve hopped around many NYC apartments, have had all different types of roommates and all sorts of closet space. Sometimes, you stare at the same space over and over again and you just can’t see it differently. I realized that there is a clientele out there that is just as passionate about organizing as I am they just need a fresh set of eyes for their space.
I began offering DIY kits to help these clients. A DIY kit consists of a complimentary consultation either in home if you live in NYC or virtually over FaceTime/Skype if you are out of my range or travel. I then put together a detailed plan that you execute yourself; DIY style.
Here are 3 reasons why DIY kits may be the best way for you to work with a Professional Organizer.
You LOVE Organizing: A lot of my clients actually really love organizing they just need some guidance or they have come to a standstill when it comes to their own space. It’s very common that you live somewhere for many years and you just can’t visualize your space any other way. Bringing in a fresh set of eyes to your space can work wonders and give you all the inspiration you need. Also, you learn a bunch of organizing tricks that you are able to teach your family, kids and bring with you from home to home.
You Are On A Budget: If you are on a budget and looking to save some money, DIY kits can be a great option for you. Most organizers charge a flat fee for DIY kits. As long as you are willing and committed to executing the plan yourself, then this can be a great option for you.
You Live In A Different State Than The Organizer Of Your Dreams: In the age of social media and blogging, you may really connect with a particular organizer that you follow. You really trust this person with your space and your vision BUT they live far from you. DIY kits or Virtual Organizing programs are a great way for you and this person to work together. #dreamteam
