Bringing Tidy Rooms to your home
Our standard hourly rate is £30
Included in the price
A free phone consultation and personalised action plan after your first session; travel to and from your destination;* research into local services such as furniture collection; storage and product ideas; all rubbish and recycling bags; cleaning products AND lots and lots of encouragement, enthusiasm, empathy and hands-on help!
Our service begins with a chat on the phone and a few questions about your situation and what you would like to achieve. If required, we'll continue the consultation at your home to look at the areas you'd like to organise. We'll talk about how best to get started together and we'll think about how you want to use your space in the future. This will help us find a way forward that reflects your needs, personality, style and way of living.
Lynda works primarily in Surrey, SW London and parts of the Home Counties.
Tailored plan of action
After your first decluttering session, Lynda will provide you with a personalised plan of action to show you how we'll tackle your decluttering project. Every client has different requirements and depending on the pace we work at together and the progress we make, will depend on how long it will take us to achieve your goals.
Lynda works on a pay as you go basis and you are welcome to book and pay for sessions one at at time. Most clients like to book an initial session to see what it is like. I suggest booking in 3-4 hour slots as you may be surprised at how tired you feel after a session. Lynda's diary also gets booked up quickly so you might like to book in a few sessions at at time. You'll need to be at every session to make decisions about the things in your home.
Decluttering and organising
Together we will tackle your spaces, removing things you no longer need and finding the best home for your keepers. Before we start, we will analyse the space and any challenges you are facing. Lynda will help you make decisions about what to keep, what to donate and what to throw away. She will encourage and motivate you through the whole process from start to finish, working at your pace. She will give you advice on storage solutions and how to maintain your new space.
You can pay by cash or cheque after the first session, or by BACS on receipt of your invoice. Our hourly rate is £30 charged in 15 minute blocks. You do not pay VAT on top of our rate.
An example cost might be £130 to organise your living room. This would include an initial phone consultation, 4 hours of decluttering, a boot load of items taken away, a couple of black sacks to your wheelie bin, a phone call to the local furniture recycling charity to collect your old table and bookcase, re-arranging your furniture to improve the layout, hoovering and polishing, a follow up email with links to storage ideas for your sewing and craft supplies, plus lots of motivation and encouragement to spur you on, as well as tips to show you how to keep your room clutter free in the future! Great value!
Tidy Rooms provides a totally confidential service to our clients and we are happy to create a filing system for you teach you filing techniques. We can also help you purge and maintain an existing system. This is charged at our standard hourly rate.
Removal and disposal
At the end of each decluttering session we can dispose of up to one boot load of items to the charity shop. We are not able to remove items to the local tip, but can advise you on local collection schemes for larger items or waste removal services. Removal and disposal is charged at £10 per load.
Lynda can advise you on how and where to sell your items - whether on line or locally.
If you have specific needs which Lynda is not able to support you with, she will resesarch the appropriate service providers and refer you on to them.
Lynda delivers decluttering and organising talks to local groups which are tailored to your members' needs. Current topics include decluttering for seniors and decluttering for busy parents. Talks last about 1 hour and cost £50.
