The Rest of My Week
The rest of the week, Wed-Fri, I worked for a couple who were getting ready to put their house on the market and needed to down-size. On Wed. one of my assistants and I tackled the woman's closet. We pulled out all the shoes, purses, clothes and other miscell. asking the client if she wanted to keep or donate every single individual item. It took us 4 hours to get through everything, even though our client made extremely quick decisions. We cleaned off the empty shelves in the closet before putting all the keeps back in an organized manner. I didn't count, but we had approx. 12 black trash bags full of donate and 2-3 bags of trash. The closet still looked full afterwards, but very much decluttered. It's amazing how much one closet can hold! The client was extremely happy with her "new" closet. The rest of the week we did many more closets and the basement. By the time we finished on Friday the house was ready for it's first showing on Sunday. The hardest parts of the job were hauling all the bags down the stairs and outside and all of the basement bags and items up the stairs. I'm thinking all those stairs must be why my hip has been hurting me the last few days! I definitely appreciate having the weekends off to recuperate especially since I have a full week scheduled coming up.

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.
