Stuff piles up and you do your very best to organize it but sometimes it just looks cluttered. You think you can just start getting rid of things and that will clear space but when you try to set things aside you run into the “my mom got this for me”, “I got this on my last trip”, “I use this enough times that it needs to stay.” If you have done everything you can to declutter your home but the items that are left over still don’t seem to fit anywhere it may be time to hire a professional organizer.
Who to Call has a number of companies that can get your humble abode close to show-home quality and make you feel like your house is still a home without feeling too ‘lived in’.
The term ‘A cluttered desk is a cluttered mind’ can’t ring more true on the mass scale that is your home. While a visually appealing home is one thing, there are other, more important reasons to hire a professional organizer and it has more to do with your heath:
The effects of stress on your health are serious ones to consider and one of the main reasons your home should be a sanctuary. We underestimate the the impact of stress but it can often lead to many physical and emotional ailments.
We all get a little bit lazy in our cleaning habits and neglect to lift and move every object, especially if there is a shelf full of them. Dust and dirt build up can be damaging to our health and lungs. Not only that but the time it takes to clean around extra clutter and debris can add hours onto your chore list. This is time that could be spent with family and relaxing (an ode to stress reduction).
It is extremely difficult to focus on tasks when there are so many other things to focus on. Aside from the long list of cleaning chores you will always have in the back of your mind, having that much stimulation around a home can clutter your mind and take it away from things that matter. People with cluttered homes may feel that they are more forgetful and have a harder time enjoying the simple things in life simply because their focus is off.
It is easy to see how a clean, organized home is good for your health, but how can a Professional Organizer help and why can’t you just do it yourself?
A professional organizer is not attached to your things
They have no emotional connection to your things so they can help you sort through ornaments, papers, and decor and pick out the items that are no longer serving you. On the flip side, they can pick out things that are certainly worth keeping know exactly where it could go. Sometimes it is just nice to have someone say yes or no to the things you are on the fence about – someone with a trained eye.
A professional organizer understands design
There are a lot of aspects of design that people don’t realize. For example, colours play a huge part in the balance of a room. If you have a bookshelf full of books and ornaments and figurines it can be difficult to make them all look unified. Colour and weight balance are extremely important minimizing the impact of a space. Books, for example, flow better if they are organized into colours as apposed to strictly sizes.
Secondly, Feng shui tackles a completely different kind of balance in the home and is something that is hard to do alone. There are google articles and youtube tutorials but it can be time consuming to learn and is certainly something you want to get right.
A professional organizer knows exactly where to take those unwanted items
There is huge satisfaction in donating your unwanted items to the place or organization that needs them the most. Once the work has been completed, a professional organizer can leave your home with these items and drop them off for you. No boxes and bags piled in the garage or front hall waiting for you to find the time to make the various drop offs. The job is 100% complete. A good professional organizer is in the know about the best home for your items. Its a win win!
