Get more organized.

We all know being disorganized is never considered a good thing and can be quite stressful, but have you ever stopped to think that it can actually cost you money?

Studies have found that being more organized and reducing clutter at home can result in a 40 percent reduction in housework. Who wouldn't love that?

The average office employee spends over an hour each day looking for things. That's 5 hours a  week wasted.

One & Done helps busy people learn to delegate tasks that they don't need to do themselves We want to share these 6 best practices used by well organized people.

1. Have a dedicated morning ritual that allows for the day to start off right. Do not check your phone as soon as you get up! It is too easy to get caught up answering emails and text messages which will disrupt the morning ritual process. Complete tasks in the same order, such as breakfast, exercise, etc. and identify 3 things that would make you feel like the day was a success if completed. Once you know what the three things are, schedule them into your day so you can make them happen.

2. Write things down. Enough said. How can anyone possibly remember everything we all need to remember each day without writing them down? Just be sure to keep the list in the same spot. Imagine how good it will feel to check things off that to do list throughout the day.

3. Purge and declutter regularly. By cleaning and purging on a regular basis you avoid a marathon rouging session which automatically fills most people with a feeling of dread.

4. Get help. Whether it's from a person or through the use of tools. There are so many time tracking tools and apps available. Research the options and find the one that will help you remain on track.

5. Forget perfectionism. Most organized people are not perfectionists. They prioritize tasks and focus on getting them done as quickly as possible.

6. Make these things part of your lifestyle. Smart people realize that spending a few minutes now will result in a more organized and stress-free day. But they also know they need to maintain these best practices for continued success.

Vacation services.

Vacation. A period of time that a person spends away from home, school, or business usually in order to relax or travel.  A respite or a time of respite.

Are the plans made? Are you packed? Are you counting down the days until your much-anticipated vacation? Will you be driving to the mountains, meeting family at the beach, or flying to Europe?

If you are going to be away from home for an extended vacation, have you thought about who will keep an eye on your home while you are gone? 



Keep your home safe and get things done too.

One of the best ways to prevent break-ins is to ensure that it looks like someone is home. Besides the normal tasks such as pet sitting, bringing in the mail and newspaper, turning on and alternating lights at night, taking care of the trash barrels, and feeding the family fish, there is so much more that can be done while you are away. 

  • In addition to the standard house sitting tasks, we help our clients with things like that much-needed service call for the fridge, washer, or garage door opener.
  • We can make sure your vegetable garden and house plants will be alive and healthy after your 10-day vacation.
  • We’d be happy to coordinate getting the painter in to do those much-needed painting projects.
  • Our specialty is stocking the fridge for when our clients return so they don't need to worry about stopping at the grocery store.


Enjoy your time away.

Are you looking f.orward to relaxing and not having anything to worry about? What would it feel like to go away knowing you can delegate tasks to someone who is focused on your happiness?

Consider the peace of mind in knowing that you can hire a team of trusted, insured, service professionals who will show up as promised, handle anything you need  done, and make sure that you don’t have any surprises upon your return. Think about someone providing you a daily email advising that all is well at home…and the leaking washing machine is FINALLY fixed. Or how about no daily email unless there is something you need to know?

We can help!

One & Done. What does the name signify? When I decided to start my personal concierge business I wanted a name that would evoke the feeling of relief in getting things done. Whether it’s something you don’t want to do or you simply don’t have the time to do, it feels great to know someone else is going to help you tick that task off your to-do list. We help busy people get important things done. That’s why we are the One to get it Done!

People often say time is the one thing we cannot buy but that’s not really true. OK so you can’t actually buy time but you can experience the sense of relief or feel the release of stress by delegating a task with the certainty of knowing it will be taken care of by someone who cares about your quality of life. Delegating will provide you the time to do the things you need to do or love to do. So many people are feeling the negative effects of stress. Per the American Institute of Stress your health can be negatively impacted by stress every day.
