I’m not sure how November managed to sneak up so quickly this year when it seems like just yesterday we were enjoying the warmth of the summer sun. But the reality is that it’s here and it’s time to get into a Thanksgiving state of mind.
I happen to think that November is the perfect time to declutter your Home and/or Office. Why? Let me give
Silly Me! I’ve been a Professional Organizer for several years now and until now, my marketing has been micro-focused… addressing topics that are near and dear to my heart. But since moving to Myrtle Beach last year and talking with current/potential clients, I’ve learned something very important… something I took for granted. Many people don’t know what a Professional Organizer does. When they hear the term, they immediately think of the tv show “Hoarders” and think I only work with people who suffer from the extreme, compulsive hoarding disorder. This cannot be further from the truth.
So this month seems like the perfect time to address this very question. It’s the beginning of a new season and of a new school year when people have a renewed interest in learning and education. And since there are various directions in which a Professional Organizer can specialize, I will address just a few of the key areas in which I help my clients.
Did you know that last Saturday was National Garage Sale Day? It falls on the 2nd Saturday of August each year! If you haven’t decluttered your garage/home/office, don’t worry… there’s still time. The good news is that it didn't have to be done by last Saturday and that you don’t have to have a garage sale. But the decluttering process has to be done. To me, having a garage sale is symbolic of freeing yourself of the physical and psychological things holding you back in life.
What I’ve learned from clients is that decluttering is one of these projects that’s overwhelming and as a result, it only gets done as a last resort. I’ve also learned that it stands in the way of so many things. Don’t let that happen to you. The goal of my blog is to inform you, motivate you and empower you to set goals and declutter the stuff that’s keeping you from achieving your goals.
