When to Hire a Professional Organizer


Does your organizing world consist of shoulda, coulda and one days? Then it’s time to think about hiring an organizer. Whether you have a closet that dumps on you every time you open the door, a home office that isn’t functional or productivity levels that are less than desirable, a professional organizer can help!
When I work with clients a phrase I often hear is, “I don’t know why I couldn’t do this on my own.” My response is usually the same, “because there are a million other things you would rather be doing”. This is the short answer. The long answer is this, without accountability and a plan, you: delay projects, do them half way, become overwhelmed and stop, create a worse mess than you started with, get distracted and walk away or are so overwhelmed by the task you don’t know where to start. It is our own anxieties, laziness and distractions that keep us from getting our clutter and time under control.
A professional organizer is, among other things, an expert accountability partner. With someone standing next to you while sorting your closet you are more inclined to part with pieces you’ve held onto far too long. A professional organizer can also help you envision a space differently. When we spend years in the same space it’s hard to imagine a different configuration or a different use for a piece of furniture, that’s why you hire a professional.
When you hire a professional organizer you will find that the projects you dread take half as long as you feared and the impact even more positive on the space and your life than you could imagine.
When you hire a professional organizer, you are less likely to buy unnecessary “organizing” products because you often have many useful products already, they just need a fresh perspective and a little decluttering to find their purpose.
When you hire a professional organizer you are in a safe, judgement free zone to address and transform your most dreaded spaces and habits.
When you are serious about getting things done or seriously tired of looking for your keys every morning in a panic, it’s time to hire a professional organizer. It’s so much more than just tidying a space, it’s about implementing systems that will work FOR you, empowering you and encouraging you to maintain your spaces and continuing to implement systems in your life and home for a more beautiful, functional life.
