How I can help:

Home Organization & Decluttering

I can tackle any space in your home: from your whole house to a closet, pantry or cupboard. No space is too large or small. Common areas in need of help:

  • Kitchen or pantry
  • Bedrooms

  • Closets

  • Garages

  • Attic space

  • Memorabilia, collections, storage ideas.

Preparation for Moving or Remodeling

Are you planning to remodel or sell your home? Either way, there is a lot of preparation required. I can help you declutter, sort, pack and store your belongings so they are readily accessible when your project or move is complete. Services can include:

  • Decluttering for staging

  • Sorting and discarding of unwanted items to reduce moving costs by reducing weight.

  • Preparing for arrival of movers and move-day management

  • Unpacking and organizing your belongings in your new space.

Home Office, Documents and Photos

Even if you don’t work from home, every household has a need for paper and documents management. And, everyone has photos – digital and/or print.

  • Time management and workflow planning for household efficiency

  • Household or work paper management & filing systems

  • Photo organization (print and/or digital), storage, and photobook creation.

Sara Cummings Home Organizer Virginia Beach Norfolk Virginia

“I really appreciate Sara’s approach to organizing. She took into account what would work for our family’s lifestyle and then we made a plan of how to organize our things for real life, not a magazine. The most amazing part is that it has stayed organized because everything has a home! . . . If you want to get organized and STAY organized, Sara is the one for the job!”
