Do you feel like you SHOULD be able to declutter your home by yourself, but the motivation just isn't there? Even if you were to get motivated, who has the time to spend an entire weekend sorting through items? If you do finally get started, you quickly get tired or overwhelmed and can only make a few decisions. It doesn't have to be this hard and cause this much stress!
Today we'll be sharing our top 3 reasons to hire an organizer to help you declutter...
Reason #1: A Coach is Guaranteed to Help You Purge More Effectively
Decluttering on your own is hard. You're easily distracted, and decision fatigue is so real! You second guess yourself and keep wondering if you should keep the item "just in case."
When you work with an organizer, we act as your coach and motivator. We keep you focused and are able to ask leading questions such as,
"When was the last time you used the item?"
"Do you really LOVE this shirt?"
"What's the worst thing that will happen if you do end up needing these 5 cake pans you've never used?"
"Is letting this go worth having more space and making it easier to find the items you actually do use?" (The answer is yes!)
We find that clients are able to declutter exponentially more items they no longer use or need when they work with us. We had a client who said she had already decluttered her primary closet on her own, but we asked if we could go over a few things again with her to be sure. She ended up decluttering TEN more garbage bags of clothes with us.
She was thrilled with her newly spacious closet that included the clothes she truly loved. It was no longer stuffed to the brim with clothes she didn't wear. Sometimes, you just need coaching through the process to get the best results.

Reason #2: An Organizer is Happy to Handle Donations, Shopping, & Returns
After making hundreds of decluttering decisions, the last thing you want is to have bags upon bags of donations cluttering up your mudroom or riding around in the trunk of your car for weeks. Plus, if you don't donate right away, you're likely to be tempted to second-guess your decisions and end up keeping items you don't really want or need.
When you work with us, we whisk all donations away for you that day and send you the donation slip after. It's as easy as can be! We also do all the organizing, product planning, shopping, and returns for you. You can get that Instagram-worthy look with our expert product recommendations.
No worries about buying the wrong-sized baskets or having too few or too many drawer dividers. No pile of Amazon returns that need to be made or never get returned and just sit in your closet as wasted money. We handle it all and make it so easy that you'll be wondering why you didn't just hire us sooner!
Reason #3: A Pro Does The Sorting and Organizing For You
When decluttering on your own, there's also the time-consuming and tiring work of pulling everything out of the space, sorting it into categories, and then, after you declutter, putting it all back in an organized way, often with organizing products. That can take not just hours but days or even weeks to do on your own.
When you work with a professional organizer (or a team of organizers to get things done even faster!), we do all the labor-intensive work for you. We only pull you in to make the decluttering decisions. Then, you can go off and do your own thing again while we organize your space into functional systems. We factor in your unique daily life while also using our expert organizing skills to keep things tidy, beautiful, and maintainable.
