Too Much Stuff, Not Enough Time
People today have more space, more stuff, and less time than ever before. But with the luxury of “more” can also come more clutter and more disorganization. Getting organized is a common goal for most people; it is up there with losing weight and eating healthier. There are thousands of books, television shows and web sites offering advice and product ideas for getting organized. But beginning the process can seem so huge and overwhelming that most people feel discouraged and give up before they get started. Sometimes, getting help from a 3rd party (and not your best friend or spouse) is exactly what you need to get you started on your path to success. When it comes to organizing your space, time and life; consider hiring a professional organizer to help jump-start your efforts and help you reach your organizing goals.
Why Hire a Professional Organizer?
I often compare hiring a professional organizer to hiring a personal trainer. Yes, there is plenty of information out there that tells you HOW to lose weight and HOW to get in shape. And yes, it is an investment of your time and money. But it does not have to be all or nothing. Even one short session (2 – 3 hours) can help you get motivated and take action!
Reason #1: Accountability to keep you on track and on budget.
Reason #2: Expert tools and advice to teach you how to get and stay organized.
Reason #3: A non-judgmental environment to keep you motivated when feeling overwhelmed.

Getting Organized: 3 Myths About Getting Organized
Myth #1: All I have to do is buy organizing products to get organized.
Reality: I highly recommend you wait to buy organizing products until you know for sure what the purpose of the container will be and after you have taken measurements. A lot of money is wasted on unused organizing products.
Myth #2: I don’t have enough time to get and stay organized?
Reality: Your home didn’t get cluttered in just 1 day so it is reasonable then, to set aside 20- 30 minutes a day, five days a week and work slowly towards reaching your goals.
Myth #3: There’s only one way to get organized.
Reality: Everyone is different and there is no one system or magic product that works for all of us. However, once you have a system in place that is easy to maintain and makes your life easier, you will never want to go back!
