What is your clutter costing you?

The Cost of Clutter

There is nothing wrong with having an affection for clutter, but when clutter gets out of control and becomes an irritation rather than a source of comfort – its time to ask if it is costing you valuable energy and the opportunity to live a comfortable life.

Here are the Costs

  1. Monetary – buying stuff you don’t need
  2. Physical – moving all your stuff from one area to another
  3. Mental – worry and stress about your stuff

Start Small

Make a decision to have one area in your home that you are NOT going to allow stuff to accumulate. Several years ago I worked with a hoarder, this was his first Homework Assignment, he had to decide where he was going to designate a NO CLUTTER ZONE. He decided to have the area next to his stove, which was an area that was not cluttered. This client made a decision long ago not to clutter that area up with stuff because of his love of cooking. If you live in a home with others, make sure they know where the ‘No Clutter Zone’ is located.

The Simple Answer

Why does one spot accumulate ‘stuff’ while another doesn’t? There are 3 answers.

  • You allow it
  • You make the decision
  • You make a conscious decision

Just like my former client, he made a conscious decision to not allow his ‘stuff’ to flow into a place where he loved to create. Realize when you make ‘That Decision’ your stuff will have to go somewhere. Spend some time creating some easy, natural-to-use systems to place your stuff or get rid of it – if everything has its own place your home or office will flow more efficiently and effectively.

How to Hire an Organizer

When you first decide to work with a Professional Organizer, you need to do some work to find a PO that is a good fit for you and your style. Consider these Pointers:

  1. Be specific about your wish list – are you looking for one or two zones in your home or office to get organized? Do you want to start with a certain area of the home? Do you want to have the whole home organized or just the areas that are bothersome at the moment?
  2. Budget Accordingly – expect to pay anywhere from $36 to $90 an hour depending on your location. As you can see it is an investment in your life . . . but well worth it in the end.
  3. Decide how you want to be involved? – Do you want the PO to simply come in and come up with a plan to execute or would you like the PO to coach you throughout your organizing journey?
  4. Consider your daily schedule – Working with a PO takes approximately 4-5 hour sessions at a time, making sure you have the time to work with the PO is crucial in getting your home organized. It takes a commitment not only from the PO to get your home in an efficient and functional position – but a commitment from you!
  5. Prepare for “Homework” – Small tasks to road-test the techniques put in place is important. You or your PO does not want you wasting your time and money on an organizational system that is not working for you or your family lifestyle.
  6. Consultation – The consultation is where you want to have answers for the questions above – it will streamline the organizational process that is needed for your space. The consultation is where your PO will want to build a rapport with you to see if she/he is the best fit for your style and personality. I always ask my prospective clients NOT to go through the home and try to organize before I show up, I need to get a truthful, honest look at the home – to see what is working and what is not working.

If you are thinking of working with a Professional Organizer – Please consider reaching out to me. I am always happy to give a 45-minute free consultation.

2 Secrets to Speed Cleaning

Okay, are you ready for the 2-Step process?

EVERY SPACE you walk or reach into has this same process – No matter the size

small foyer 2      large foyer 2

  1. Work space ~ Top to Bottom
  2. Work space ~ Left to Right

If you work each space in your house or office with this simple process, you will not be spending all day cleaning. You will find yourself moving through the home or business in a more efficient and productive manner. One last tip; the only thing you should be listening to on cleaning day is your radio – the others are way too distracting.

Enjoy some Clean Therapy!

*This book has been a part of my Business Library since 1987, I was certified in Speed Cleaning for Pros in 1989. The Clean Team training was one of the most organized, best engaged, informative training I have had in my cleaning career.*
