Professional organizers are trained, skilled specialists who help people create order where it is lacking in their lives, so that they can make long-term improvements and keep disorder at bay. A good analogy would be someone who is not naturally good at staying fit and eating healthily. You could say, “just read a book on sensible eating and exercise” but if that were true, would there be so many millions of books on the topic? Would so many people be unhealthy?
There are three basic reasons why clients call us for help:
1. They don’t know how to get organized or where to start on their own. Some people get overwhelmed and too anxious to even begin. A Professional Organizer can help find a good starting point and create a plan to follow. Knowing the steps to take (usually starting with cleaning out the storage spaces first, then going through everything needs to be stored to decide what to keep, then figure out how to best fit it in that space) and knowing someone is going to keep you focused and productive can make it a whole lot easier to accomplish your goals.
2. They don’t have the time to do it on their own. They have busy families or jobs and need an extra set of hands to complete a space quicker. You know that you have too much stuff in your garage because you can’t fit your car in it, but you don’t want to spend an entire weekend sorting through everything, trying to figure out how to store the things you want to keep, and then driving around to various places to sell, donate, or trash what you don’t. A Professional Organizer can work with you and make it all happen in a fraction of the time.
3. They don’t want to do it themselves at all. Just like accountants and tailors and housekeepers, there are certain activities that people are capable of doing themselves, but that they just don’t want to spend their time on. I have plenty of clients that aren’t even home when I am in their house. They tell me they want all of their Christmas supplies organized so that they know how to pack them at the end of the season this year and unpack them easier for next year, or they leave me a stack of paperwork and mail to sort, shred, and file.
