What Is a Professional Organiser?

Professional organisers are those who can help you simplify your life by making your home or business run smoothly by getting rid of the clutter and can assist organising cupboards, drawers, files and entire rooms of homes. They make the most use of any space and find a place for everything.

This is a service that can take days or even weeks to complete, but will have your home looking cleaner and un-cluttered. Most of all, the service will make everything in your home and office easy to find and allow you to live much more efficiently.

You may be surprised at other services professional organisers offer. Each organiser has their own skill-set and personality. There are some who are also interior designers/decorators. Some are personal stylists and some are great with photo organising. Others offer specialised services, like counselling, working with hoarders, assisting those with disabilities including ADHD. The Institute of Professional Organisers can provide more information on highly complex or specialised services. I can also suggest who might be able assist. Please ask, I’m happy to help! 

Who Needs Professional Organising?

  • Time poor people needing physical support for greater efficiency, it could be one room or a whole house
  • Individuals requiring an extra pair of hands and guidance to manage and lead family/friends
  • NDIS participants wanting to practice home and life skills
  • Chronic disorganised people who are ready for change
  • You may have tenancy obligations and want to learn and apply strategies to keep spaces clutterfree
  • An adult child who is moving his or her parents into a retirement community
  • Lawyers, executors, social services who need practical assistance serving their clients

Most professional organisers charge an hourly rate ranging from $70 to $250 per hour.

While the price can be steep, many clients find the service pays for itself.

 

Benefits of Getting Organised

Save money without overthinking

Once you get organisied, you’ll know what you already own, eliminating the need to buy duplicate items. Your professional organiser can also help you find the perfect organising products for your space and lifestyle, so you stop wasting money on items that just don’t work.

Be more productive at work with less effort

A professional organiser can create order and structure out of mess.  You’ll be amazed at how much you get done in shorter amounts of time. And by focusing on your priorities and goals, with less distraction, you’ll be able to finally move ahead toward reaching them.

A smart way to decrease stress

When you can find what you need, are on top of your to-dos, and arrive on time, you’ll feel calmer and have more peace of mind. No more feeling over-whelmed by life — you’ll be the one in control.

Your wishes for time granted

When you’re organised, your days go smoother and you get a lot done. That leaves more time to indulge in things that are important to you.

Find lost treasures

Sometimes when you declutter you get surprised, in a good way, with what you find. I’ve seen people find cash, long lost jewellery and other sentimental items. 

How long does it take?

The total cost and time of a project is dependent on several factors including:

The speed at which you make decisions.

 The quantity of items, size of space.

Larger or more complex areas, like kitchens, home offices will take longer.

Generally, in 3-4 hours we can complete a small space such as a pantry or closet.
