What is Professional Organizing?
It's not about perfection. It's about efficiency, reducing stress & clutter, saving time & money, and improving your overall quality of life. A Professional Organizer doesn't just rearrange your closet or living room, a PO will work with you one-on-one to determine the best plan of action based on your desired goals and your current state.
Who Hires a PO?
Most people who hire a PO have determined that being organized just isn't their forte. They want to be organized- maybe even tried to be- however, because it's not a skill that they possess, their efforts are minimal. There are many types of clients who would hire a PO, including (but not limited to):
A new/busy/working Mom
An overwhelmed family
Preparing for a move
New homeowners/ recently moved
Seniors in need of downsizing
The chronically disorganized
The situationally disorganized (usually after a major event takes place)
Hoarders (there are 5 levels)
Everyone has a different situation, a different story, and a different perspective. A PO will also serve as a counselor at times, especially during difficult downsizing or de-cluttering. Below is a list of services that (may or may not be) offered by PO's:
Tailored services for each room of the house:
Packing for a Move
eBay listing or other consignment services
Senior Move Management
If you're still unsure as to why YOU would hire a PO, consider this:
Would you rather spend your day purging your closet and reorganizing your basement storage OR would your time be better spent either spending time with your family, making money, or otherwise enhancing your life?
Determine what's most important to you, and the decision will be easy.
