Why hire a Professional Organizer? The answer to this question and more...
Professional organizers encounter a variety of questions. Here we share with you some common facts and fictions about organizing to give you a better understanding of the services we provide and what they can do for you.
Fiction: Hiring an organizer is expensive Fact:Organizers save individuals and businesses time and money, bringing them peace of mind and allowing them to be more effective in whatever they do. No more un-cashed cheques, lost banking info, uncollected invoices, needless purchases for what you already have or unused gift cards etc. Actually most times we even find money and valuables once thought lost, as we organize. The question is, can you afford not to get organized?
Fiction: My office is so messy you will be shocked. Fact: Like with many things we are usually much harder on ourselves than is called for. Disorganization and clutter are relative and for some individuals a little mess can be a great deal. For others they may say "I only need a little help" yet they can barely get through the hallway as there are piles from wall to wall. There are some hoarding issues that may cause a real safely hazard, yet this is rare.
Fiction: I will be forced by my organizer to throw everything away Fact: Getting organized is not about getting rid of everything. As an organizer our job is to help our clients go through the process of deciding what stay and what goes. We are an objective party and will work with you to help determine what belongs and where it should go, so that you will get the best use out of your belongings. In fact we will never force you to throw away anything you don't want to, we help you come to your own conclusions as we support you.
Fiction: I should be embarrassed, no one else is this disorganized. Fact:Clutter is more common than you think. Almost everyone I meet knows someone that has an issue with clutter in at least one area of their life. We live in a society that encourages us to purchase and collect all sorts of things. Professional organizers are not there to make you feel embarrassed about your clutter we are there to help you clear it.
Some have tried to get organized in the past and failed, yet this is not because they are not able to stay organized it is only because the organizing system failed.
Everyone and every business is unique and a professional organizer will take your lifestyle and the way the space is used into consideration.
