What is a Professional Organizer?
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 organising closets, 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 many organisers offer. Each organiser has their own skill-set and personality. There are some who are also interior designers, while others assist students in study and time management. Some offer space planning and Feng Shui and others offer event planning. The Australasian Association of Professional Organisers (AAPO) can provide more information.
What Happens During an Organising Session ?
First, we’ll look at the space that needs help and discuss your likes and dislikes. Then we’ll assess your space, challenges, intentions and more. Next, we’ll create a strategy to create a useful, organised space. Then, we begin! At the end of the session, we assign you “home-work” and schedule your next organising session. Finally, we collect payment for the session or for a packaged program.
How Long Will It Take?
This depends on the size of the room and your level motivation. Generally, in 3-4 hours we can complete a small space such as a pantry or closet. Larger or more complex areas, like kitchens, home offices, garages will take longer. Some clients need someone to help them get started. Others prefer someone to help them from start to finish. Each client’s needs are unique.
Can a Family Member or Friend Help?
It’s great if your family and friends want to support you. They can be helpful during a session in lots of ways by:
Looking after the baby or taking young children out
Taking the dog for a walk
Hanging out laundry
Bringing boxes and bags downstairs
Admiring the process and giving encouragement
Loading the car with items leaving the house
Dropping bags at the local charity shop
Putting out the rubbish and recycling
Taking items to the local recycling centre
Providing and lunch and preparing refreshments
What if I’m Embarrassed?
Working with an Organiser is nothing to be embarrassed about. Getting help from an organiser is no different than getting help with any other thing you may not be able to do on your own: Professional Organisers are skilled specialists who help create order where it’s lacking.
Some people think organising is something everyone should be capable of doing. The truth is not everyone can, or wants to.
Even if you can, you may be too busy, too stressed, too tired to deal with everything on your own.
Dreams-Come-True (24-Hour Package)
This is the best value for a whole house overhaul, an over-packed garage or ongoing maintenance support.
Multi-Wish (12-Hour Package)
During the blitz, we can target one area (such as organising the office, a junk room) or a few smaller areas around the home.
Quick Wave (3-Hour Session)
In three hours we could complete a small organising project or kick-start a larger-scale project (such as a home office, kitchen, bedroom).
