The rates Professional Organizers charge clients are independently determined based on the organizer's skills, experience, certifications, confidence-level and services offered. Some projects may take just a few sessions, while others take several weeks or months. Fees may be based on an hourly, daily, weekly or  by-the-sesson basis. Fees for full-time Professional Organizers can range from $50 - $150 per hour, depending on many considerations (e.g., education, certification, status and experience in the industry, confidence-level, whether they run their business full-time or as a "hobby", if they are recognized as an expert by media, etc.).
