I worked last night until 7:30pm. Sometimes, my clients who work M-F only have weekends and holidays available, so I try to be flexible. My clients were two sisters who recently moved into their mom's house after she moved into a nursing home. So, they had to combine the three households into one which has been difficult. Since I discovered they had tons of storage in the garage attic area, I suggested we move some of their mom's boxes up there to free up other storage space for their things. After hauling a bunch of boxes up the attic ladder, we utilized all the empty space for their boxes and loaded up one car full of things to be donated. In the end the garbage and recycling bins were full also. I also hung up some pictures and organizers inside the house, then we tackled one of the bedrooms which was full of boxes of mostly clothes and shoes that had never been unpacked. After purging tons of shoes and clothes already in the closet, there was plenty of room for all the keep clothing in the boxes. It was quite an undertaking for the three of us which I'm sure is why the one sister hadn't tackled it on her own. We made so much progress in 6.5 hrs. that I think we completed most of what my clients had wanted to work on for now. I think they enjoyed working with me as much as I enjoyed working with them. They commented on how mellow I was and not uptight like other organizers they had met before.

I'm Rene'. I've been a Professional Organizer for 8 years now. Since I love to write as much as I love to organize, I thought I would combine my two loves into this blog. Since this profession is still new to many people, I wanted to write about what I do to inform new clients what services I can offer them, and, hopefully, inspire new organizers interested in this profession.
