What is a Professional Organizer?

I find it so fascinating how many people have no idea what a professional organizer does, or even means. I am often met with inquisitive questions or just blank stares when I tell someone what I do for a living.

Merriam Webster Dictionary on the word Organize:

: to arrange and plan (an event or activity)

: to arrange or order things so that they can be found or used easily and quickly

: to put things into a particular arrangement or order

It is a very literal meaning that,for me, makes so much sense. I help people establish order and function to their households, businesses and everyday life. For example, you’re at your wits end with your hall closet that used to house your winter coats and now houses every season plus the mail you don’t want to deal with. I help you make sense of that chaos by optimizing the space you have and creating space saving solutions that will work for you and your lifestyle long after I’m gone.

No, I’m not a cleaning lady, but yes I do help you clear out the things you do not use or need so that your space is tidy and uncluttered and you’re left with only the things that make you truly happy. To me order and function go a long way and I’m thrilled that I get to help people achieve that!
