About Our Rates:

Professional Organizers charge about the same rates as Interior Designers, Image consultants  or similar service professionals.  Most charge by the hour. CastAway the Clutter! offers bulk rate packages for your convenience and helps to save money. For packages a deposit is due at time of scheduling. Or if you prefer to pay by the hour, our hourly rates are $65-95/hour.
Why hire a Professional Organizer?

Being organized is a tremendous investment in yourself that will pay you back with less stress and more time to do the things you want and need to do.  Using a professional who can teach you the skills you need to be organized, will be worth the money spent.

1. Do I Need to Prepay? 
Prepayment is preferred, but optional, except for the purchase of gift certificates.  We offer this service as a convenience for clients who prefer to pay by credit card. However, a 30-50% deposit is required at time of booking, or at first appointment and full package payment must be received before all sessions are completed. A deposit is also required to reserve your session or space analysis.

2.  What happens after I have paid for my gift certificate?
If you have purchased a gift certificate, you will have stated in your order where you would like it to be shipped. Gift certificates can be mailed directly to the recipient at no additional charge.

3. I know that we could easily use the Cast it Away Decluttering Package, but we cannot complete it in a short period of time.  Can we spread it out over two weeks or more?
We do recommend that organizing sessions be completed close together for faster results and to build momentum. However, we understand that this is not always possible and will try to work with you accordingly.

4. I'm on a tight budget but really need your services.  Do you offer any type of payment plan?
Pre-payment options are available based on your budget and needs.  

6. Do you charge for mileage?
No. We do not charge for mileage unless it's more than a 45 minute drive.  Exceptions may apply, but would be fully disclosed prior to our first appointment.

"Jacquie was extremely easy to work with.  Great personality.  Very upbeat and good energy. She was very helpful in my kitchen and my master bedroom sitting room and gave me lots of ideas I could use myself.  Jacquie is very talented, helpful and professional and I would recommend her services to anyone."  Nancy Brennan, Clarksville, MD

I do not give great references frequently.  Jacquie's business is outstanding.  She is participative, friendly, professional and successful.  She's also honest.  Her hourly or packaged rates are more than fair.  CastAway the Clutter! deserves the highest rating I give, dependable, fair, goal-focused, and therefore, outstanding.” C. Hurley, Columbia, Maryland

           The Road to Minimalism  

The Road to Minimalism may be for you if your entire home is cluttered and you need to take time out of your life to get it done.  Sessions are scheduled weekly or every other week (minimum) and  always on a weekday.  Suited for people who work from home, stay at home moms, retired persons, etc., who are able to carve out 2-1/2 to 4 hours ongoing. However, anyone can use this as long as they are committed to getting organized, without major breaks.  The Road to Minimalism can be only be customized for 60+ hours, and require commitment and a signed agreement.  

Personal Coaching Benefit:
For some individuals, personal coaching may be an important part of the journey.  I will offer additional support to help instill new habits and positive change, and.coaching can occur during the session, or by phone.  Some of the organizing can also be completed virtually.  Your road to minimalism will be customized accordingly (also see my Virtual Organizing Program).

Session Length and Investment:
The Road to Minimalism's periodic sessions are typically 2-1/2 or 3 hours and range from $180-$250 per session, depending on your needs, how you will be paying, and location. We can also begin with longer sessions and shorten them as progress is made. 

A retainer of $220, plus the amount of the initial session is required to start. The retainer is non-refundable, but will be applied to the final session. Contact me if you are interested in having me help you on your road to minimalism by committing to 60 or more hours of decluttering, organizing and coaching. (Individual coaching sessions are optional.)

 "Cast Away Your Old Life" Maintenance De-Clutter Club  for Current & Past Clients

3. You can do it, but just don't have the time or motivation.
4. You struggle with ADD/ADHD, or have a physical limitation that prevents you from doing it all yourself.

If it's been awhile since I've seen you, and, especially if your home is very cluttered, please plan to schedule an In-home In-Depth Space & Needs Analysis  before joining the club (see description and fees above)...  Clients with a heavy amount of clutter are encouraged to schedule some "clean sweep" sessions before beginning.  Club terms and payment plan can be customized to your needs and are guaranteed to remain the same for one year, as long as account remains current.
