Pricing

Organizers can charge in one of three ways:

Fixed Fee. Fixed fees are charged for discrete organizational tasks like organizing a workspace or setting up a filing system. For example, Jeffrey Mayer of Chicago charges $1,000 to organize an executive’s desk. An organizer might also charge a fixed fee to do an introductory training program, a needs assessment, a workshop, and a follow-up session. For example, Susan Silver sells such packages to corporations. Fees for such programs will vary with their length and the level of personnel with whom you are working. You can charge more to train executives than you can to train secretaries.

Hourly Rate. Fees range from $25 to $125 depending on your location, experience, and expertise. Residential and garage organizers will tend to be at the lower end of the scale; corporate organizers charge more.

Retainer. Organizers contract to work with a company for a certain period of time each month. Retainers may range from several hundred to several thousand dollars a month.
