What is a Professional Organizer?

What can a professional organizer do for you?

A Professional Organizer, also called an Organizing Consultant, is a person who provides personal assistance, consulting, coaching, and resources to help others get organized. They possess the skills and experience to help people regain control over their environment or time. In order to increase productivity and reduce stress, people hire Professional Organizers for a wide range of services.

A Professional Organizer can provide services which include organizing physical spaces such as kitchens, garages, attics, offices, basements, children’s rooms and closets. Organizing paperwork such as to-do piles, photos and filing. Organizing time such as family schedules. And project management such as business start-ups, estate clean outs, moving or simply vacation planning or coordinating one of life’s special events.

An Organizer is someone you bring into your life like any other professional: your accountant, your landscaper or your personal trainer. While you could do your own taxes, landscaping and workouts, a professional will have the knowledge and systems to accomplish your goal in the most efficient manner. They will guide, encourage and educate those they work with about the principles of organizing through their support and focus.

The National Association of Professional Organizers uses the following definition:

A professional organizer enhances the lives of clients by designing systems and processes using organizing principles and through transferring organizing skills. A professional organizer also educates the public on organizing solutions and the resulting benefits.
