"Organization is about facing our "clutter" and making the decision to get back to the things that are really important: our families, our children, our friends, our relationships." - Tami Doling / Professional Organizer
The biggest challenge in getting organized is starting! The idea can be very intimidating. Where do you start? How long will it take? What do you do first? What containers do you use? How do you decide what to keep and what NOT to keep? How do you sort through it all? ALL these questions have answers and the process is much easier than you think. There are also many resources available to help you get and stay organized.
Who hires a professional Organizer? Very busy people, new moms, families, parents of small children, teenagers and students, teachers, seniors, business executives, small business owners, realtors, entertainers, self-employed, new home buyers and sellers, people who are downsizing, and the list goes on. ANYONE can benefit from an organized life!
If you really want to get rid of your clutter but don't know where or how to begin, a Professional Organizer is a great option! A Professional Organizer can expedite the organizing process, guide you in organizing your space, and teach you how to maintain an organized life. You should expect to work closely with your organizer to achieve results that work best for you and your family. Organizing is a very customized process - unique to each individual. A Professional Organizer will help you discover YOUR organizing style. There is NO job too big or too small for a Professional Organizer. And do not let embarrassment stop you from taking control of your clutter! Professional Organizers are very discrete and respectful of your privacy and your space. They are here to help you and work with you - not against you. They will not MAKE you get rid of anything you want to keep - they will simply encourage you to make good choices and find a place for your things.
Being organized comes with many rewards. It will save you time - which is priceless - so you will have more time to enjoy the things you love! It will also SAVE you money. If you spend 15 minutes a day looking for keys, kid’s shoes or that unpaid bill, and you make $20 an hour at your job, being disorganized is costing you $5.00 a day! That comes to $1,825 a year! You can also make money selling items you no longer need or want, and donate items you no longer need or use. Most importantly, being organized relieves stress and boosts confidence! There is power in purging!
I have had several clients who are unsure about whether an "investment" in a Professional Organizer will be worth it. This is a very valid question in today's financial climate. I am VERY happy to say that EVERY client not only sees the value in getting organized, but also usually CONTINUES the process in other areas of their lives. They may start with a kids toy room then move to the office and then organize the kitchen. Once they see how the results of being organized pay off they usually want to keep the process going!
Having a Professional Organizer is very much like having a personal trainer for your physical body, a dietitian for your nutritional health or a life coach for your emotional and mental well being. We are Organizing Coaches - ready to motivate and help you in your quest for a less chaotic life. We are also your partners in maintaining an organized space.
Organizing is a process - a very fulfilling process! Embrace it and enjoy it. Once you start, who knows, you may even have fun!
