The Organising Bee - Professional Home Organising & Declutter in Canberra
Professional Organising & Decluttering for Canberra families and their homes.
We are about the family. Minimising clutter in the family home and putting in place organising systems to make daily tasks quicker and easier, so that you can have time to enjoy your life and have time to create those special memorable family moments.
We organise all areas within the home, but our passion is children’s spaces – organising bedrooms, organising play spaces and organising craft areas for the young and young at heart.
At The Organising Bee, we are also passionate about ensuring the key zones of a family home are organised efficiently and working optimally to achieve the goals of your family. We organise kitchens, pantries, living areas, family command centres and one of the family home’s busiest room, the laundry.
No home organising session is the same as we work closely with you to implement organising systems that make sense to you, and are easy for you and your family members to understand and maintain today and into the future.
Our Home Organising Packages
As everyone's organising goals and needs are different, we have developed a range of organising packages. We are sure you will find one that suits yours.

We also offer time management tools helping you organise your time more efficiently - have a look at our Organise My Time package.
Choosing the right organising package for you
The length of the organising session that you require is dependant on your personal organising goals, the amount of clutter you have, the degree of organising required, along with how challenging you find it to make decisions regarding items you wish to keep or discard.
Having someone in your home may be intimidating or even embarrassing, but you can trust us. We are here to help you. We are not going to judge you, nor are we going to force you to get rid of anything or do anything that you don't want to do. Everything we talk about or do within your home is kept confidential and we abide to a strict Code of Conduct governed by our professional association, the Australasian Association of Professional Organisers (AAPO).
Feel free to book in for a phone or in-home consultation and we will be able to give you a good indication as to what package would be most appropriate for you and your family.
Key Features of our Home Organising Packages
During all of our organising sessions (excluding our DIY organiser package), we work with you to organise your home or space. We help you declutter and sort your items into those you want to keep and those you would like to dispose, donate or re-home. It is up to you how hands on you want to be. We are happy for you sit with your feet up and relax - but it is essential that the final decision on what to keep and what to get rid of is made by you. We will provide guidance, but will not make you to get rid of anything.
Complimentary in-home consultation
During the in-home consultation, we will talk in depth about your space, how you or your family use your space, the challenges and obstacles that you may be facing, along with your expectations to enable us to meet your organising goals and priorities. This usually takes between 45 minutes to an hour.
With your permission, we will take measurements and photos in prep for the organising session. The in-home consultation is complimentary with all home organising packages excluding the Mini Organising Session.
Tailored organising action plan
With all of our home organising packages (excludes Mini Organising Session) we provide a written report based based on the needs and organising challenges that we identified during the in-home consultation. The plan details the key organising actions, a timeline and the organising systems that we will implement during your organising session.
Delivery of My Organising Toolkit
The Organising Toolkit reinforces the systems and strategies that we have provided during the organising session. It includes all the tools that you will need to maintain your newly organised space, including a follow-up report, tips, ‘how to’ guides and tools to assist you maintain your organising focus and motivation.
Complimentary follow-up organising session
This is a vital step in the process. Around 1 to 2 months after completing your organising session, we return to review your space, the organising systems that we have put in place and discuss how well they are working for you and your family. During this follow-up session (30 minutes), we can do a quick refresh and make minor adjustments to the organising systems, if necessary.
Keep Me Organised program
For those who would like ongoing assistance managing the clutter in their home or space, The Organising Bee offers a Keep Me Organised program. During this program, we visit your home periodically through out the year and revisit a space that we have already organised and give the area a quick refresh (or we can tackle an area yet to be organised).
Personal Shopping Service
To save you time in running round trying to find the right size container or basket to fit a certain space, we offer a personal shopping service. The personal shopping service is as an optional extra and is charged at our hourly rate.
Hands-on decluttering and sorting support
We physically help you sort, categorize and declutter your space. We will sort out your pantry, neatly fold the linen in your linen press or organise your child's playroom - what ever you need us to do.
It is up to you how hands on you want to be. We can work together, or you to sit with your feet up and relax.
It is essential that you are at home for the duration of each organising session. We will provide advice, but all decisions on what to keep and what to discard must be made by you.
Planning and organisation of your space
Once your space is clear from all clutter, we look strategically at your space, how you currently use the space and how you want to use it. We create organising systems – that is, we create homes for all your belongings in locations that you are most likely to be using them, all in a way that works for you.
We can help organise and create homes for all the items that you use frequently, so that you can always find them when you need them – the remote control, your keys, your wallet, your pens, the phone charger, your books, your sudoku puzzle and everything else that is important for you.
We will provide advice and guidance on the most appropriate way to store your belongings in line with your needs. It is crucial that this step is customised to you and your family, so that you will be able to maintain it in the long term.
Storage and organising tools
Depending on the type of storage (furniture, containers, tubs) that you already have, we may advise the purchase of additional storage or organising solutions. If this is the case, we will work within your budget to find an option that suits your needs. Please note that the costs of storage or organising tools is not included in our package price - but in most cases we find that once we have decluttered you already have more storage than you actually need.
DIY Organiser package
For those who prefer to declutter and organise their own space, but are unsure where to start, we provide a DIY organiser package. Within this package, we provide an an organising action plan based on your goals for you to follow at your own pace.
