Why are people hiring professional organizers?
So the question is, why do people hire professional organizers to help them organize their stuff?
1. So much stuff
People are constantly acquiring more and more stuff. Here are some statistics that you may find interesting.
The average American home contains over 300,000 items
1 out of 10 families are renting storage units to make room for more items
25% of people with a 2-car garage do not have enough room to park 2 cars inside them
Do any of those stats apply to you home?
2. Stressed and overwhelmed
Research has shown that clutter has a profound effect on our mental wellbeing. In one study at UCLA they found that high levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, in individuals when talking about the clutter in their homes; and 77% of Americans said they felted regularly stressed about the clutter or neatness in their homes. We all have heard at some point how stress can effect our health.
Our homes should be the place we escape stress, or at least not add stress with clutter and disorganized spaces.
3. Time and Money
How much time do you think you have wasted looking for something? How often do you buy something even though you know you have it but just can not find it? Well you’re not alone, Americans consume twice as many material goods as we did 50 years ago and spend an average of 3,680 hours searching for lost items over the course of a lifetime.
Seriously, who has time for that?
3. Because they can
Maybe hiring a professional organizer has never crossed your mind because you thought it was an exclusive service for the top 1%. Or maybe you feel ashamed for not being able to declutter your closet on your own.
Let me ask you:
Have you ever ordered your groceries to your door or curbside just not to have to drag your kids through the store screaming because you wouldn’t get them crap that is strategically placed at the check out counter? Or have you used another service to save you time or money or simply because you just didn’t want to do it yourself?
I know you have a million other things you rather be doing than color coordinating your children’s crafts into the neatly organized cabinet, and would rather someone else do it. Have you ever watched The Home Edit and just wish you could leave your mess of a pantry and return with a perfectly sorted, labeled and contained one, making it easy to find everything you need? This is for you then.
If you have ever used one of these services you can (should) hire a professional organizer.
