Each year, I have a standing appointment with a handful of clients to assist with shopping, organizing and decorating their offices and homes…

I also spend time gift-shopping-wrapping and mailing packages to their friends and family members – all over the world.

I am Personal Shopper with a very strong family background in Retail.

May I help you?

Give The Gift of Time – with Kerry on Personal Assistant

Kerry On: A Gift Certificate

Frank M. gave his best friend “Me” as a housewarming present.
Well, he actually he gave her three hours of my time/talent
for packing, downsizing, donating  and preparing before the movers were to arrive.

Moving Experiences

Janet T. was moving from a huge loft South of Market to a much smaller space in Laurel Village.
In preparation to sell her condo she needed to get things wrapped, packed, labeled, and staged and ready to put on the market.
In tandem, we packed up three vast closets and the pantry which was filled with copious cooking utensils – it was like a mini Williams-Sonoma store.

Janet T promptly saw the advantage of teamwork and my organizing skills and signed up for an additional five hours.

Mission accomplished!

Kerry On:

I’ve shopped, shipped, wrapped, recycled, delivered, deciphered, trained, hired and fired.

My clients request myriad tasks: I’ve picked up laundry, groceries, documents, meals, organized complicated Expense Reports and researched Car Insurance for a busy Executive.

I’ve delivered documents to City Hall and hired a Property Manger in Chicago.
I’ve arranged, assembled, shred, and sorted. Closets, cupboards, garages and drawers – are all in my repertoire.
I don’t do windows, I don’t do floors – but I know who to hire to do get things done.

Kerry On Daly – Your Personal Assistant – so you can carry on and have more fun. What can I do for you?

What to do with all those old family photos? Kerry On

drawers20060109

Do you have boxes, baskets, and drawers filled with family photos?

Will you sort them by year, by family member, event, school, job, or state?  Perhaps you have plenty of time to put all of them in scrapbooks?

Or, like many of us, you might be daunted by the task and put them all back in boxes (baskets, drawers, cupboards) and plan to tackle the herculean task another day?

I enjoyed Great Customer Service with the help of Jennifer in Hayward. My client has hundreds of photographs to scan – we sent 100 photographs in- to test the process-  and he was very impressed with the quality and professionalism of ScanCafe. Now, for the next few hundred photographs…

Got clutter? There is no magic…

photo-dishes

Good News – Bad News:

There is no such thing as a Magic Wand to remove clutter…

The Good News:

I can help you toss, shred, organize, alphabetize, de-clutter and organize receipts, files and mild chaos.

Allow me - to  assist you in de-cluttering, organizing, purging, tossing, and shredding…

Janice hired me to work with her elderly parents. They had rooms and rooms filled  with items that  needed to be repaired, donated, thrown away, put in the proper place…

paper_

An affable couple, Tillie and Michael, agreed they no longer needed those 12  old jig saw puzzles, 20 ‘0dd’  sets of playing cards, coloring books and crayons for  the grandkids –  who were now in college.

It’s in the Bag    We filled up bags of junk  to toss or recycle …and bags of  toys in good shape  to be donated. Next, we sorted though dozens of old movies, cassettes, and duplicate CD’s. We agreed: there are only so many Frank Sinatra ” I Did it My Way” CD’s one can listen to.

Too Much Stuff Syndrome?  They had multiple bookshelves crammed with books and old magazines – in no time the books were sorted and organized -dog-eared magazines were recycled … giving the living room a great face lift.

(Boxes of old National Geograhics were put on Craigslist for free – and disappeared.)

Tillie has booked me to visit – twice a week – for the next two months. It’s a date!

We are working magic: clutter is  disappearing!

Time for Pre-Holiday Organizing – Get rid of duplicates

photo_8828_20090101

The Holidays are Coming!

Are you duplicating your efforts?


Time to Kerry On and Clean Out

Mary Kay simply needed a second set of hands and a discerning eye – her kitchen cupboards were over flowing with duplicates and triplicates of everything.

You don’t want to know ‘the count and the amount’ of  Tupperware pieces stacked, and floating in drawers, cupboards, shelves.

We tackled drawers of pots and pans and instantly realized a family of three doesn’t need 6 fry pans…  4 pasta pots…six spatulas…

They just had one ’10-Piece Set of Calphalon’ too many. We sorted, organized, matched pieces and purged the remainder pieces.

Voila! The  available shelf space doubled and we hadn’t even approached the formidable Baking Supply drawers.

In five hours we cleaned, cleared, organized, sorted, straightened and purged and donated.

It’s a great feeling to streamline and systemize and to bring a semblance of sanity and organization to your home.

Goal: Everything in its place.

***We had bookcases, junk drawers and a storage room filled with “stuff.” It became too much. Kerry On came in and got us organized, in no time. We plan to use Kerry On once a month. Gary and Joy T.

***Holding down two jobs with two busy kids kept me from organizing files and throwing out old documents, receipts, and statements. Kerry On came over one afternoon and quickly sorted and shredded. I am now renewed and  energized by the lack of clutter.     Thank you!  Donna P.


***I needed help taking an inventory of  all the art and stuff I inherited from two elderly aunts in Novato.

Kerry On worked with me to recycle boxes and boxes  glass, paper and fabric. Then we decided to purge the junk, donate the other stuff.  Finally, came the process of making an inventory, taking  photographs, then: measure and evaluate the remainder. She was a godsend!”   Patsy S.

Need a helping hand? Are you ready for a Spring fling?

Do you want to fling all those old magazines, files, books, duplicates and triplicate of  everything?

Kerry On and together  we can create a plan of attack – you’ll be happier for it.

May I help you?

What exactly does a Personal Assistant do? Kerry On


EggplantI have returned:
Comcast boxes, Lulu Lemon pants, library books and  and dozens of Amazon.com “mail backs.”

 I can fix it: I have arranged for windshield repair, painters, electricians, carpenters, and housekeepers.

I’m a birdwatcher- While the client was out of town I took over the care for the Canary and sent the client a daily picture, while she was stuck in London for five days.

 I do inventory: I did a photograph inventory of the client’s vast art collection – we worked together to create a professional binder replete with photos, receipts, measurements  for insurance purposes.

I’ve researched washing machine repairman, retaining walls, hot tubs, and cranes to lift said hot tub over a house in San Francisco.

I’ve sewn Burning Man costumes and delivered chairs to a famous Petaluma woodworker for elaborate repairs.

Pick Up and Delivery I have processed and picked up a Visa at the Russian Embassy in Pacific Heights.

Helping Hand: I delivered healthy meals, flowers, and treats to an aging, infirm couple each week.

Eureka: I found the perfect company to replace the lining on a client’s favorite – albeit worn and torn leather jacket. Success! The jacket looks like new.

Delivery: At Easter time, I delivered plump little baskets of candy and treats to half a dozen addresses for a client – a self proclaimed Easter Bunny.

Phone tag: I’m very good at returning phone calls, solving problems, booking appointments and talking to customer service, and waiting on hold.

San Francisco and Marin County

You’re busy.

You don’t have time to pick up the groceries, laundry, tickets, prescriptions and mail.

You would love to stock the pantry, cupboards, and refrigerator…
and the linen closet…

You really want to go to the Container Store to buy the necessary items to organize those three closets…

You wish you could return the library books and videos on time, mail the packages to your family and get your shoes repaired. Yesterday.

“Kerry On” – Your Personal Assistant specializing in short-term projects, tasks, jobs, solutions, chores and jobs.

You vowed to eat healthier in the New Year... yet, the ‘grab and go’ meals in the black boxes seem to be the fastest – certainly, not the best solution.

I’ll save you from circling the block looking for that illusive parking place;  liberate you from standing in line at the post office, pharmacy, cleaners, ticket office and at Safeway,  Whole Foods, Costco, Wine Impressions, Target…

I Moved a couple from their home of 45 years to a Senior Residence in Santa Rosa.
I researched the best water heater company in Marin and arranged for the very smooth installation
I hired and arranged for 62 windows cleaned to perfection
 I created a very thorough ‘Earthquake Preparedness Kit’ for a family of four
and facilitated the design and construction of 3 very efficient closets….
I helped a film-maker set up a home office; picked up a Visa at the Russian Consulate, bought, wrapped, insured and mailed multiple Christmas gifts, stocked a very extensive pantry from stem to stern.
I researched and found a great paint that replicates a movie screen and made a client very happy by having her wall painted/treated – voila! A new meaning for Home Movies….
Delivered: A client in New York hired me to deliver healthy, balanced meals from Whole Foods to his frail, elderly parents in Sausalito.

De-Cluttered: A very busy client needed closets cleaned up and organized
Client A. doesn’t have time – she hands me her Errands List – Considers it “done” and it is, every week.
Downsized: Another client needed help downsizing/de-cluttering/organizing before her move from a loft South of Market to a condo in Tiburon. We shopped, shipped, wrapped, taped, labeled, recycled, donated and got her feeling a lot more confident and relaxed about her next chapter.
