Lately it seems as if everyone has hopped on the recent organization craze. Everywhere you look you see beautiful images of perfectly decluttered and beautifully labeled and organized spaces. But how do you actually get there? As a professional organizer one of the main things (among many others!) that I do is to help my clients declutter and then implement versatile organizational systems that continue to keep them organized after I leave. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: getting organized isn’t a one-time event and I don’t treat it as such. I focus on creating systems that will last based on the needs and current lifestyle and habits of you and your family. With those elements in mind, I’m able to implement solutions that will last because they support how you are already living, making it easy and intuitive for you and your family to adapt.
So how do you know if you actually need a professional organizer? Below are some examples of when a professional organizer can help you.
You have a closet/pantry/garage full of clothes/expired food/unused random items, but can’t put together an outfit or find what you need because you don’t know what you already have. Essentially you are spending too much time looking for things you need and/or are surrounded by things you no longer can use or love.
Your past ways to declutter have been shoving miscellaneous items into drawers or closets, only to create more chaos. Remember physical clutter fosters mental clutter!
There are reminders of your previous organization attempts and failures everywhere that discourage you from any change: random bins, trays, and baskets without anything inside, bins and boxes piling up in your garage because they don’t fit the space you originally intended them to fill, or a label maker still in it’s box.
You want some guidance and a specific plan tailored to you and your families needs.
You pay a monthly fee for a storage unit filled with stuff you could live without.
Do any of those things apply to you? If yes, don’t worry. They have applied to all of us at one time or another. And, I know first hand that life happens.
My ultimate goal for you and your family would be to create a personally tailored and practical organizational systems that allow you to focus on enjoying your lives instead of being constantly bogged down by tons of clutter and disorder.
