Being a professional organizer sometimes comes with high expectations from others. I don't mean the quality of my work - I mean the perception people tend to have that I live in a "perfectly organized world".
It's funny to watch people come to my home and look around with eyes wide open, looking to see how a professional organizer lives.
I always feel that I have to explain that I am human too and that I do not live in a completely organized home at all times. Life gets in my way too! However, I do know the things it takes to keep a home manageable and comfortable. And that is all I expect from my clients as well. I never expect them to be "perfect", just organized in a way that works best for them and comfortable in their home so they can enjoy it.
You can create your own definition of what living organized is about! In general, I think you would agree that it should:
- Allow you to find what you need when you need it & have the ability to store it quickly and easily without frustrating you.
- Work for everyone who needs to use it.
- Ease your stress.
- Free up time for the things & people you love.
- Keep things simple…
And, finally, what it doesn’t have to be is PERFECT!
So, relax. I can help you to declutter and get organized if it is just too overwhelming for you. Bottom line, I want you to enjoy your home, not have a "perfect" home! Contact me if you need me.
In the meantime, have a great week!
