Don't be embarrassed by your clutter
Clutter is one of the last taboos and nothing to be ashamed of. There was a time when having cancer was not talked about. People will now freely & proudly admit to overcoming a disease or difficult situation but won't have guests over to their home because there is no where to sit.
Excess containers can add to disorganization
Purchasing containers to store items before sorting & editing can create more work for yourself. Simply filling containers with papers, pictures, collections or other items means you still have to look through everything to find the one piece you want or need, now it's just all in a box. Selecting & using containers is the last step in organizing not the first.
There are as many different ways to get organized as there are people & many different levels of organization. Not all systems work for every person or space. A Professional Organizer will take into consideration your life & lifestyle, the number of people using the space, whether the space is for business or personal use or both.
