Are you worried that your mess is too big to handle? Struggle with ADHD? Can't seem to create systems that last? Do you worry about being judged? 

I want you to know that I'm here for you, and never judge. And I'm far from perfect. I ask a lot of questions so you can share your hang-ups and together we can come up with a plan to get you going in the right direction, FAST! I work beside you, helping you decide what to do with your things. I'm equipped to handle even the toughest spaces, and give you the right tools for what you're needing right now.

 

Imagine twice the storage space you have today.

Imagine having an extra hour in your day every day - coming home where everything has a place, or what's not in place can easily be put away.

Imagine knowing exactly what you have so you don't buy duplicates or waste energy looking for things. 

Now, stop imagining. This can be your reality! Just take the first step and start with a free consultation.

Policies You Should Know

The following outlines the policies for Family Organizing, updated October 2022.  All policies are subject to change without notice.

IN-PERSON ORGANIZING CLIENTS: 

  • Initial Consultation and Needs Assessment: In this initial free 30 minute phone consultation we will discuss your specific situation in brief detail. I will ask questions so I can get to the root of what’s keeping you stuck or frustrated, and find out what your goals are. Then I’ll tell you what I’m hearing and if I can help you then I’ll tell you exactly what that looks like and if that makes sense to you, then we will move forward. 

  • Session times are typically 2 hours, which starts from the moment I arrive until the moment I leave your home. This will be determined as we schedule sessions.

  • Confirmations: I will send a confirmation text the afternoon before our session. Please know that this is complimentary and not guaranteed. If I don't send a text, your session is still scheduled. 

Effective Sessions:

  • In-Person Sessions: Organizing sessions require the participation of the Client unless otherwise agreed.

Cancellations:

  • Cancellation Process: It is the responsibility of the client to reach out to cancel a session. For appointments with cancellations 48 or more hours before the appointment via call or text so that another valued client may have your session time.

  • Less than 48 hours: The client will be charged for 1 hour of the hours booked, deducted from an existing package. 

  • No-shows and Last Minute Cancellations: From 120 minutes before our scheduled session, including a no-show if I arrive at a client’s home, and the client isn’t home or able to work, and hasn’t called, the full session will be deducted from an existing package. Our sessions are 2 hours in length unless otherwise specified. If you choose to end our session early, the full 2-hour session will be charged.

  • Inclement Weather: Weather can be a wrinkle, both for my safe driving to your home or if you planned on working but now school is closed and you have childcare on your mind.  Typically, we’ll connect as an appointment gets closer and the weather is predicted to be a factor, and we’ll make a mutual decision on how to proceed. 

  • Right to waive: Family Organizing alone reserves the right to waive any cancellation fees.

Payments:

  • Fees are due 7 days in advance of our first session, unless otherwise arranged in advance.

  • Payment types accepted: I accept payment by credit card, cash, check, or bank transfer via Zelle. Checks should be made payable to Christina Miltz.

  • Insufficient Funds: There will be a charge of $35 for any check returned for insufficient funds or any bank draft item that is not payable for any reason, as well as additional collection and/or legal fees to compensate for overdraft charges and unpaid account balances.

  • Cancellation fees: If you cancel sessions remaining in your package, you will not receive a refund, but you have 1 year from the start date to use them. 

Safety: 

  • Firearms and weapons: Please take care to remove these items from any space we work in together, and secure them somewhere else safely.

  • Private, “personal” items: Let’s just put it this way: If you’ve got something that you think either you or I might be embarrassed if I came across it, please take a moment to place it somewhere else. 

  • Working with minors: Sometimes, I’ll work with children, tweens or teens.  I only do so with the parents’ explicit permission, when the parents are also home. I treat the confidentiality of these clients the same as I would all clients. 

Other Services, Direct Costs, and Vendors:

  • Supplies and Solutions: Clients are responsible for ordering and paying for the supplies and solutions for the project. 

  • Shopping and Research Time: The fee for any extensive research (30 minutes or more), shopping and returns is one-half of the hourly rate. Receipts will be presented at or before the next appointment for reimbursement. 

  • Other Direct Expenses: Direct expenses, including, but not limited to, copying, shipping fees, delivery charges, parking, are the Client’s responsibility. They will be billed to Client at the time of service.

  • Other Vendor Services: During an organizing project, it may be appropriate to work with other service providers that are not provided by Family Organizing, such as cleaners, movers, furniture assembly, junk removers, carpenters, physical labor, etc. At a Client’s request, I will seek to find service provider options; Clients, however, will contract directly with such service providers, holding Family Organizing harmless for the actions or performance of other service providers.

  • Travel time:  Family Organizing will travel, without charge, twenty (20) miles or thirty (30) minutes each way, whichever is shorter. Any travel time above that will be charged at fifty percent the hourly rate, starting at 30 minutes or 20 miles. When travel fees apply, any tolls will be charged to the client, as well. Family Organizing alone reserves the right to waive any travel fees.

Confidentiality: 

  • Privacy & Confidentiality: Given the sensitive nature of the work we do together and the high level of trust it requires the Clients to place in me, Clients can be assured of absolute privacy when working with me. As a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals, Family Organizing adheres strictly to the NAPO Code of Ethics, emphasizing confidentiality, honesty, and integrity.

  • Fee Disclosure: Clients agree not to disclose to others our fees for services.

Restrictions and Liability

  • Restrictions: Family Organizing reserves the right to withdraw from an organizing project at any time if the project involves perceived unsafe working conditions, if Clients are in breach of their agreement with me, or if we cannot render the services requested by Clients through no fault of our own. I request that clients remove and secure firearms from work areas before appointments.  Other items may be requested to be handled only by the Client, such as jewelry, valuable collections or medication.

  • Limitation of Liability: Client will review all materials that Family Organizing recommends be disposed of by means of recycling, shredding, donation, resale or any other means. I help the Client make decisions, but the final decision is always the Client’s to make. Client agrees that Family Organizing is not responsible for any loss of damage caused by Client’s failure to carefully review or inspect any discarded items. The Client agrees that the homeowner’s policy is the primary insurance policy for any property damage claim.
    Client agrees to indemnify, defend, release and hold Family Organizing, LLC harmless of, from and against any and all costs, losses, claims, damages, liabilities, expenses and other obligations (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs) asserted or recovered against or incurred by Family Organizing, LLC in connection with the services proposed or provided herein. Customer acknowledges that results are purely subjective and may vary between customers. 

Photographs:  

  • Photographs: Clients give Family Organizing permission to use, anonymously, testimonials, and before & after pictures of their location (edited for identifying information), in marketing materials, including print and online. You will be shown the photo before it is used, and if you object to having it “out there”, then that’s as far as it goes!

Client Satisfaction:

  • Client Satisfaction: Family Organizing strives to meet a 100% Client satisfaction level. It is my responsibility to analyze your situation, teach you appropriate new skills and help you make the changes you want. If Family Organizing fails to meet any realistic expectations, I will schedule a complimentary session to make any necessary adjustments.

 

VIRTUAL ORGANIZING CLIENTS:

In addition to policies above, the following apply to Virtual Organizing Clients: 

  • It is the responsibility of the client to call / video-connect at the scheduled call in time. Additional time will not be added if the client calls in late.

  • Cancellations:  a 48-hour notice is required for cancellations. Please text or call.

  • No-show for appointment:  Should you not contact Family Organizing for your scheduled call, the session is forfeited and will not be reimbursed.

AFFILIATES AND RECOMMENDATIONS: On the website and in other social media, I will occasionally recommend products or services for sale. I do this when I believe there is value to the product or service, based on either my own personal experience or reviews of that product/service, or relationships I have with the provider.  In some cases, I will be compensated if you make a purchase. I may also receive the product for free in order to consider the item and provide a review; I always recommend you do your own due diligence before making any purchase, and that you never purchase a product or service that you cannot afford.
