The more I look into what organisers do, the more fascinated I become.
If you think about it, we are all so different, we all have different preferences, skills and interests. Marie Kondo makes an excellent point in her book (1), tidying is not a skill that we are born with and we are not taught how to organise ourselves by our parents or at school. If we learn through trial and error, it’s a wonder that we are all as organised as we are!
Sometimes, our mental or physical health can affect our ability to manage our things. It can be incredibly difficult to maintain an organised environment or manage possessions as we once did. Our surroundings can also negatively impact our health; ‘messy homes and workspaces leave us feeling anxious, helpless and overwhelmed’. (2)
This is where a professional organiser can help. Experts in their field, professional organisers are insured, trained, experienced and passionate. They know how to organise, maximise storage and put systems in place to stay well organised. And they like to help others learn to do the same!
Professional organisers work with clients in their homes, taking time to understand them and what they want to achieve. They support with making decisions about items that are no longer useful and develop storage solutions that will work for them. The client may want to develop new habits or ways of doing things, or make things simpler and easier to manage and the professional organiser can help them to do this.
We all have busy lives and can’t be knowledgeable in everything, so it makes sense to save valuable time and effort by getting help from an expert when we need it.
