I did five different jobs this week for five separate clients. Two of those jobs were for a company called Home Sweet Home that I occasionally work for. They help businesses transfer their employees to new cities and homes by assisting the employees with donating and discarding items before their move to save money on the moving expenses. Thus, I either work with the client to help with the decluttering process, or I just deal with the items they decide to donate or discard. Just got home from one of my Home Sweet Home clients. They had a large truckload that my assistant and I took to the dump. It is extremely hot today, so we were dripping with sweat loading everything up. After the dump, we took another load of smaller furniture and other miscell. to be donated. I'm still trying to find people that will take some of the other free furniture, otherwise I will have to have the junk hauler take all the rest.
My assistant and I also transformed a garage this week, so that the client can now fit a car into it. We rearranged all the cabinets and drawers and threw away all the trash. Then, we were able to find homes for all the items that were taking up room on the garage floor. The project took us 5 hours to complete.
We also worked on a kitchen and pantry this week. The pantry had lots of miscell. items that weren't food in it, so we transformed it back into an actual pantry. We had to find homes for all of the other things that came out of it. Some items got donated, some were trash, some went into the garage or other kitchen cabinets. We completed about 2/3rds of the project and will be going back next week to complete it and tackle the client's closets, also.
All together, we did 3 dump runs in the last 2 days and 2 donation runs! I'm going on vacation for the next 4 days which I could really use about now.
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.
