Domestic Diva Awards is The Singapore Women’s Weekly’s annual highlight of innovative products that help us live, work and eat better. This year, over 250 products across 69 household categories, ranging from cleaning and cooking appliances to healthy meal subscriptions were nominated. The winners were decided through public voting in an online survey in partnership with Milieu Insight, and Editor’s Pick, recognising the best in their fields.
Since Marie Kondo‘s launch of her book ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up’ and Netflix show,
sparking joy decluttering has become cool. But she’s right. Not only can cleaning up be super satisfying, but there’s also nothing quite like having an organised sanctuary to regain some clarity and control in our lives, especially amidst the chaos of the pandemic.
Tidying up isn’t your forte or you have no energy nor time on your hands to get that chaotic closet sorted? Here are seven professional home organisers in Singapore to have on your speed dial, and their rates.
Originally from France, Get Organised & Beyond founder Nathalie Ricaud’s passion for organising started from childhood. “I was raised without systems or schedules. Looking back, I’d say organising things around the house was my way of creating the structure that had been absent in my life,” she says.
Get Organised & Beyond received the most votes from our readers when it came to their choice of a professional home organiser, making them the winner of the Domestic Diva Awards 2022.
With Nathalie, our session starts with a short chat on the challenges you face, be it decluttering or time management, or to ask any questions. From there, you can choose to get hands-on assistance, have an on-site consultation while executing the deed on your own, or opt for online coaching if you need just a bit of advice to get on the right track.
Rates: Her hourly rate starts at $100. Nathalie offers not just decluttering and home organisation services, but also digital organisation, paper organisation, time management, corporate talks and workshops/webinars.
