Professional Organizers


Professional organizers are individuals who use their talent and skills to declutter and rearrange spaces, rooms, homes or offices for clients, creating organization out of chaos and clutter. In performing their job, they sort through items, documents, photographs, collections, memorabilia, and similar belongings, either working on their own or side-by-side with a client. They create systems and environments which are tidy, organized, clutter-free, and functional. The resulting spaces allow their occupants more productivity, efficiency, and comfort.

Professional organizers may have specialties, such as photo organization, home organization, office organization, document organization, family history preservation, or time management. They also run the gamut from those who simply help others to “tidy up” to those with professional degrees that address hoarding disorders and other emotional or physical conditions which result in chronic disorganization.
