We start with a free phone consultation to get to know your needs and organizational style.  If, after the consultation, we feel we are a good fit for each other we will set up on-site sessions or work together virtually.  The fist session is a more in-depth look at you needs and current systems so we can create a customized plan for you.

At the end of a project Steele Organizing will leave you with a maintenance plan customized to you for keeping your space, time, and technology organized.
