Is a Professional Organizer Right For You?

Do you have an area in your home you’ve been meaning to organize but just don’t know where to start? Are you hosting an event soon and need your space guest-ready? A professional organizer may be a worthwhile hire. Before you make that decision however, it is important to know if that’s the right choice for you. Does everyone need a professional organizer? Will it really help you? How can you find a reputable one? Read on to find out if hiring a professional organizer is the right fit for you and your needs.

When to hire a professional organizer

Lack of free time is one of the best reasons many seek out a professional organizer. With an expert on your side, you’ll have someone who will make decluttering and organizing your space their priority.

If you are motivated but easily overwhelmed, this may be another sign that a professional organizer is right for you. They can act as a coach who can keep you on track and will know where to start. Professional organizers have experience with breaking down big and potentially overwhelming projects into smaller and more manageable sections.

How to find a great professional organizer

If you decide that an organizer is right for you, the next step is to learn what to look for. Here are some skills and traits you may want to search for:

  • Working as a team: Any good professional organizer should take on projects as a team, not as an individual. This is especially true if you have a larger project to tackle. They should work alongside you to make sure they meet your needs and handle the project with the utmost care.
  • Transparency: A professional organizer should be open with you throughout your working relationship. “Magic Solutions” are often magical because they are not easy to maintain or customized for your specific needs and lifestyle. Find someone who will work with you to find the best solution and communicate effectively along the way.
  • Supporting the right businesses: Organizing calls for collaborative effort, which is why whoever you choose should be working in tandem with businesses you support. Your collaborators should try and source the organizing materials from local businesses. You and your collaborators should also make sure to drop off the donations from the project at your favorite non-profits.
