First Step to Organizing is to De-Clutter

 

We all want peace, harmony and order. We hope to achieve that in our houses, in our offices, and certainly in our hearts and souls. However, living and operating in clutter can turn peace and harmony into chaos. Not only do we then have to work through the clutter that surrounds us, but we may also feel tension and anxiety as a result of an unorganized, disorderly home.

So how do you go about achieving peace, harmony and order in your home and throughout all aspects of your life? Believe it or not, a great way to do this is to work with a professional organizer. This expert will help you determine what peace, harmony and order mean to you, and then you’ll work together to create and enact a plan to make your surroundings feel as peaceful as you imagined.

Professional Organizers Can Help Simplify Your Life

If you’re not sure if a professional organizer is for you, see if any of the following apply to you. You might need a professional organizer when:

  • Your paperwork has overflowed onto your office floor.
  • A family member passes away and you suddenly have all of his or her belongings in your home.
  • Your pantry shelves are falling down and the door no longer shuts.
  • You’re moving and you need creative organizational solutions.
  • Your home needs an organizational facelift.
  • You want to be organized, but it never seems to actually get done.
  • You have collections that aren’t being stored or displayed how you want them to be.

Professional organizers offer ideal solutions for people who find that life – or their belongings – make them feel overwhelmed. With a wealth of experience and the ability to look at your belongings with a neutral eye, a professional can easily take your worst mess and get you organized.

 

What is a Professional Organizer?

A professional organizer is more than someone who has a knack for cleaning. According to the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), organizers use their expertise and tested principles to create custom systems for their clients. They teach organizing skills that help clients take back control of their environments, tame their paper piles, and keep their lives running smoothly.

A professional organizer can help with a variety of tasks, including:

  • Closet design
  • Space planning
  • Paperwork management
  • Cross-country moves
  • Record management
  • Goal setting
  • Time management

A professional organizer is different from a house cleaner. Someone who cleans your house will come in for a couple of hours, tidy up your things, and then he or she will leave. A professional organizer will come into your home and help create solutions to tackle your immediate organizational concerns.
