I have been sending out this newsletter now for over 5 years. For those of you who open it and read it, I hope you have gotten a sense of who I am, what I do and why.
For those of you who are new and have just recently signed up or, for whatever reason, decided to start reading, the readers digest version is: I am a Professional Organizer and one of my specialties is residential organizing. That covers everything from linen closets to bedrooms to playrooms to the garage. There isn’t a place in a home that I can’t improve upon. I help people get organized or “better” organized as the case may be.
One of the reasons I started Organizing Concepts and Designs (aka OCD) is because organizing comes naturally to me. It’s just something I’ve always done for myself and for others. I can walk into a room full of clutter or boxes and make sense of it all. I can make that space more efficient.
Here’s the problem…my house is under construction, and it looks like a tornado hit it. There’s stuff everywhere. Much as I tried to contain it prior to and during the construction, it was just impossible. After living this way for a few weeks, I am now completely overwhelmed. I don’t know where to start to put “humpty dumpty back together again”. Why is it that I can do this for everyone else but I’m having trouble figuring this out for myself? The answer is simple. It’s never easy when it’s your stuff.
So, even though I know exactly what to do I am going to hire a Professional Organizer to help me. Here’s the questions and thoughts I had that led me to the decision to hire another P.O.:
1. Why should I do it myself?
2. Even if I can do it myself, it’s always better and quicker to have another set of hands.
3. Maybe another P.O. will have some insight into organizing products that I haven’t thought of before.
4. Perhaps I can organize things differently which might even be better than it was.
5. It would be great to have another perspective.
Bottom line is I’m going to give it a try. I’ll let you know next time how that worked out. All I know is I can’t wait to get some order back in my life.
