While it may still be cold out, the truth is that spring will be here before we know it! With spring comes many great things, however, one that overwhelms a lot of people is spring cleaning. If getting organized was one of your New Year’s resolutions, that you accidentally forgot to work on for the last few months, it can be especially overwhelming. But don’t worry, we are all guilty of putting off spring cleaning and getting ourselves into a literal pile of clutter that is too much to even begin to tackle. That’s why this year we are listing the top 5 reasons on why using a professional organizer to jump start the process is helpful to get the most out of spring cleaning.
One of the biggest reasons people hire professional organizers to help them is for the accountability. Think of a professional organizer as a work-out trainer for your clutter. While you may start on one area, the likelihood of finishing the project is much greater with a professional organizer on your side. Also, the results are much better with someone who is pushing you to be your best!
2. New Ideas
A professional organizer organizes for a living, so of course they know a thousand ways to turn your clutter into something you are proud to share. One of the main aspects of a professional organizer’s job is problem solving on how to truly maximize each client’s space. For example, many people forget about under the bed space, and not in the “shove everything under the bed because your guest will be over in a few minutes” kind of way. Utilizing drawer storage containers can create a great storage solution for people with little closet space. Whether you use the drawers for shoes, extra linens, or off season clothing, the drawers allow you to have easy access and can often times double the storage space in a room.
3. Less Overwhelming
One reason a lot of people do not start their spring cleaning project is simply because it is so overwhelming to know where to start. A professional organizer can help give you step by step instructions and guide you through the entire process. Once a person gets started and can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel, they get inspired to continue working. It’s a process, and once you start the project gets done more quickly and efficiently.
4. Increase Productivity
How many times have you started to clean up that messy counter space only to be interrupted by a phone call, a kid asking for a snack, or one we may not like to admit, Facebook notifications? Honestly, it is hard in our busy lives to get things that we put on the back burner off of our to do list. Hiring a professional organizer means there is no excuses or interruptions. Once you make the appointment you are going to want to be as productive as possible during that time.
5. Lasting results
Maybe the main reason to hire a professional organizer to help with spring cleaning is to keep lasting results! How many times have you actually gotten through your spring cleaning only to find the house a disaster after a few weeks. This can be heart wrenching as you put in so much effort to make it look so nice. As a professional organizer, one of my biggest goals is to not only help clients get organized, but to stay organized. Helping my clients understand my process of thinking is important for helping them keep lasting results. One tip is to make sure every item has a “home”, meaning that you will know right where to find something and, the key to lasting results, right where to put it back when you are done.”
