Why Should I Hire a Professional Organizer?

Updated: Oct 30, 2023

Great question! Let's get down right down to it. Life is chaotic and managing clutter and disarray in your home is a common challenge. Many people try to maintain order, but often find themselves spinning their wheels, stuck in a vicious cycle. Some have attempted solo organization efforts only to realize they lacked an effective approach, while others delay tackling the task due to the overwhelm and not knowing where to begin. I'm here to shed light on what I've learned from my clients, and why hiring a professional organizer might be just what you need to organize your space - and maintain it for good!

1. Personal Support

In the whirlwind of life, juggling various roles can leave you feeling overwhelmed and stressed. Striking a balance between work, parenting, health, relationships, and household order is a challenge. Yet, many hesitate to ask for help because inviting someone into your mess can feel shameful and embarrassing. A huge number of my clients, mainly women, feel burdened and unsupported. But the misconception that asking for help equals failure is just not true. Hiring a professional organizer is similar to seeking expert guidance in any other area of life. Just as you hire a house cleaner when time is scarce, work with a personal trainer to attain fitness goals, or engage a bookkeeper during tax season, a professional organizer gives you the tools, insight, motivation, and assistance you need. By enlisting their expertise, you gain access to someone who understands the best products for your space and the art of functional organization.

2. We Understand the Struggle

Feeling judged often deter many people from considering the idea of hiring an organizer. It's important to stress that this choice does NOT mean you're incapable or inadequate. As a mom myself, I'm SO very aware of life's intricacies and how clutter and messes can accumulate - and FAST! I know how it feels like the walls are caving in, and even after years of experience, maintaining a tidy home remains challenging still. I empathize with the demanding nature of managing a household amidst ALL the commitments. The universal cycle of intending to declutter and organize, only to be stopped by overwhelming complexity, resonates with many. Countless clients have attempted independent organization projects, yet found themselves stuck in the same cycle of disarray. Remember, you're not alone in this - ask for help!

3. Form + Function

A big misconception I encounter is the belief that small spaces require extensive remodeling. However, many clients discover untapped potential within their existing space when beginning an organizing project. A well-organized setup can often provide more space than initially thought. If your kitchen or pantry seems cramped, the solution often involves optimizing organization, not physical expansion. As a professional with years of experience, I've tested the best products that truly enhance the functionality of a space, and am ready to offer insights into what will work best for your home... the first time!

4. We Help You Let Go

Organizing is a process that is also psychological. Hiring a professional organizer is similar to having a personal coach, therapist, and organizer rolled into one. Emotional attachments to possessions are common, complicating decisions about what to keep and what to let go. This is where an organizer's skill comes into play. By asking the right questions, I help clients identify their true needs, items of value, and help you understand what's truly necessary. Unwanted items are not trashed; they are channeled to the appropriate places through donation or recycling. The goal is to create a space that's easy to use - and maintain!

5. We get the job done - quickly!

The process of decluttering and organizing goes faster when you have an expert working alongside you. I can't count the number of times a client says, "I can't believe how much we got done!" And the transformations are incredible. A professional organizer can tackle in one or two days what you've been putting off for weeks, months, or years. I hear so often that clients feel lighter because things are easy to use, put away, and maintain after we complete a project together.

6. Expertise and Professionalism

I bring a wealth of training and experience to each organizing project that goes beyond surface knowledge. Just as you'd expect from any expert you collaborate with, a professional organizer is no exception. I understand the sense of overwhelm you feel because I've been there too. And I come with a zero-judgement, always cheerful attitude. There's no space to big, too small, or too scary. Trust me, no matter what you think, your space is NEVER the worst I've seen!

Remember, you're not alone in beginning your organizing journey. Life is busy and hiring a professional organizer may be just what you need to eliminate clutter, uncover hidden potential, and refresh your space.
