Some things about life will never make sense, such as why dropped toast always lands jam-side down or why tuxedo t-shirts aren't considered formal wear. Add some certainty to an uncertain world with today's Groupon: for $40, you get two hours of home- or office-organizing services from Consider It Done! (a $90 value). Today's Groupon is valid for any home or office within 30 miles of Birmingham; locations more than 30 miles away are subject to a travel fee of $0.25 per mile.
The personable sorters from Consider It Done! summon order out of chaos with their home- and office-organization systems. The two hours of service may begin by inviting organizers to come in for an initial assessment of selected disarray, when professionals determine project goals alongside future time-management and object-arrangement strategies tailored to each client's lifestyle, working methods, and Myers-Briggs personality type. A full array of efficiency-infusing services ($45 value/hour) can banish freshly thawed springtime clutter from attics to bunkers, or combat digital waste with email-management systems. Alphabetize spice racks with kitchen cleanings, sort through closets to unearth lost fashions, or finally get around to evicting that family of wrens from the laundry room.
Consider it Done!
“My mom swears that I was born with a label-maker in my hand,” says Christi Gamble, the professional organizer behind Consider it Done!. As a child, she sorted her Barbies according to their outfits and took care to place the fake egg carton in the right spot of her play kitchen’s refrigerator. Christi later channeled that focus into her career, earning a master’s degree in organizational management and working to help corporations run efficiently. She began to lead seminars on time management and organizational skills, after which people often approached her about helping them sort out their homes. She saw a new way to make use of her talents and, in 2005, founded Consider it Done!.
Today, Christi helps homeowners tackle all of their organizational challenges, from a messy closet to an entire home. After an initial consultation, she lends her guidance as clients sort out what to keep and what to purge. Then, she brings in supplies, working within a predetermined budget to find functional containers and storage spaces.
Christi usually returns about a month later to see how things are and to shoo away Borrowers nesting in freshly organized sock drawers. For her, the most rewarding part of her job is hearing back from clients about how much more efficiently they can get ready in the morning, set up for a party, or make a meal. “They’re less stressed. They have more time with their family,” she says. “That’s what makes it worthwhile.”
