What is a Professional Organizer?


Do you ever find yourself looking around your home and feel like things are not getting put away, or you're not even sure where they're supposed to go in the first place? The piles and stacks seem to build right along with your frustration, don't they! Don't worry, you are not alone! We hear this from our clients every day.

How Do Professional Organizers Differ From House Cleaners and Stagers?

Your first instinct may be to call a house cleaner--they know how to straighten up, right? The Encarta Dictionary defines cleaning as "the activity of making things clean, usually in a domestic or commercial environment." Cleaning and organizing are two very different things.

What about a Home Stager, can they get your home in order? Staging is "cleaning, repairing, and updating the décor and furnishings of an older home to make it more attractive when shown to potential buyers." (Encarta)

Okay, what about Professional Organizers?

"A professional organizer enhances the lives of clients by designing systems and processes using organizing principles and by transferring organizational skills." In addition, "Professional organizers help individuals and businesses take control of their surroundings, their time, their paper, and their systems for life." ~The National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO)
