Frequently asked questions

Why hire a Professional Organizer?


Professional Organizers create systems that are easy to follow and manage. They are there through the entire process (declutter, space plan, clean, and organize) or in whatever capacity you see fit. They are there to motivate you, present ideas, and ultimately create your dream home with you. They allow the ability for freed up time, space, money and more!




Will you work with me, or just coach?


This is entirely up to you. If you want help doing everything, Lyons Den Organizing is here for you. If you prefer doing the work solo but need a plan of action (minimal hands on sessions scheduled), we can do that too! Weather you need encouragement for donations, want tons of tips and lists, or have a preferred system already in mind and just need a boost getting started, we can make it happen together.




What rooms/areas does Lyons Den service?


Ranging from short term (e.g. closet or car cleaning) to long term projects (e.g. offices full of inventory or garages of hoarders, etc...) Lyons Den is here to accommodate your needs. We believe there is no project too small or task too large to tackle. For a complete list of areas serviced, visit the Services Page and select the topic closest to your needs. If you don't see a room/project mentioned, just ask, chances are YES I CAN DO THAT TOO! Currently serving residential homes in the Seattle Area only. Note: self-employed individuals with at home offices are A OK so long as there are no more than 3 employees working from your home office at the time oganizing services are provided.




What are the benefits of getting organized?


ENDLESS! First and foremost: stress levels will decrease, and your attitude and mood will increase to a positive, happy vibe. You will know where all your belongings are placed and have more time to do the things you love (since you won't be busy looking for this or that, or cleaning ASAP for an unexpected guest). You will save money, from items repurposed and new outlook of "less is more", meaning no more impulse buys that clutter the valuable space you have, a possibility for profit from consigned goods (if any) and a tax deduction for donated goods also weighs in your favor. You will be proud of your home and feel comfortable in it again because it will be organized, manageable, clean, and an aesthetically pleasing place for you to enjoy and spend time in. MANY other benefits come from organizing, my Pinterest Board has an entire section devoted to educating people on the positive ways organizing can influence your life, find on the home page under "Little Big Extras".




How do I connect with Lyons Den to make an appointment or ask questions?


Send an email directly through Wix by visiting the "Contact" page, or emailing lyonsdenorganizing@gmail.com. You can also call Erin Lyons at (206) 883-6547 and leave a message, please allow 48 hours for a response (which will include inquiring when a good time for your FREE 1-hour consultation session would be). Our initial meeting (the free consultation) will consist of a questionnaire which will help point out problem areas, as well as a walk through of the home.




Are discount packages available?


Yes! The minimum you can request is one session (4 hours of service for $300) however, the more sessions you schedule, the greater the discount! Discounted packages start at purchases of 3 sessions (12 hours).




Will Lyons Den Organizing keep our sessions confidential?


Yes! Everything I see, hear, or help with is confidential, 100% of the time. I have many years behind me working with sensitive data (prior accounting and real estate positions) and know how important it is to keep your information confidential. I value privacy and expect the same consideration from my clients.




What payment types are accepted and when is payment due?


I accept cash, checks, and online transfers, and venmo app payments. I prorate additional sessions purchased so you will always get a discount when purchasing 3 or more sessions (12 horus). I invoice on the last day of the month, and all check payments should be made out to: Erin Lyons no later than the 15th of the month following services rendered.




How long will it take/how much will this cost?


The short answer is: it depends. There are 6 factors to consider before giving a price estimate, and even then, boxes are full of surpirses! We will talk more about how to best work in the timeline and budget you've rewarded yourself with.
