myths vs. facts chalkboard Have you heard the expression “get out of your own way”?  Sometimes our own thoughts are our greatest obstacles.    Here are three common beliefs that can cause us to hesitate in hiring professional organizers:

Professional organizers will go all Judge Judy on me. Clients may feel that organizers are judging their housekeeping skills and abilities. In fact,  our education in this field means we completely understand the reasons people may not be able to organize themselves. Our respect for each and every client means that we work with you to organize in ways that suit your personality and organizational style. We aren’t perfect! We are all in this together.

Professional Organizers are too expensive. In fact, if you look at our sessions as an investment in yourself, and learn to maintain an organized office, kitchen, or garage, you will save money and time in the future. How much time do we spend each day looking for something? This will vary from person to person; some estimates are between sixteen and fifty-five minutes per day. Most common items include the remote, keys, socks, and important papers.

Hiring a professional organizer means I’ve “given up”. On the contrary: hiring a professional organizer means you are interested in improving the efficiency of your life, so that you can spend more of your time doing the things you care about, with the people you love. Whether you have a guest room (or an entire house)  filled to the brim with stuff you don’t know what to do with, or just want to figure out a way to organize a kitchen, office, or closet, we are here to work with you to achieve your desired results.

Sometimes all we need to get out of our own way is another voice that speaks to our doubts. How can we help you?
