People often ask me, “So, Sue, just what does a professional organizer do?” My simple answer is that we don’t just clean up messes. We don’t rearrange furniture. We actually go to extraordinary lengths to simplify a client’s life by giving them more functional space in their offices and homes. Besides that we work with our clients to identify and eliminate harmful and erroneous thought patterns. Finally, we come alongside our clients to guide and mentor them into new paradigms and new methods of doing things.

My colleague, Vicki Norris of Restoring Order, states that she exists to help people reclaim their lives, not simply to help them organize. It’s her passion to help the world get back to what-matters-most, instead of being enslaved to their stuff. “With that aim, we roll up our sleeves and link arms with our clients, helping them organize, rearrange, beautify, respond, research, dive in, wrap up, plan ahead, prepare, recover, execute, and so much more. We are the capable hands that tackle difficult or delayed projects, bringing relief and freedom. Truly, we are Order Restorers, not simply ‘organizers.’ ” Check out her article “Unexpected Things Professional Organizers Do” here!
