What is a professional organizer?


The question, “What is a professional organizer?” has come up so many times in conversations that I feel the need to address this question. Answering such a question with an example always brings a greater understanding for people. My examples will be previous client consultation reports.  These reports are examples of projects that have happened over the last couple of years and will give you an excellent overview of what happens in the world of a professional organizer.  My main areas of expertise are dealing in what I call the 4 Ds, Death (Estate organizing projects), Disabilities (can range from ADHD to Alzheimer’s disease to Parkinson’s disease), to Divorce (division of assets) to Downsizing (for our Boomers and seniors folks).

Coles notes provided for the busy people.       

Since these reports are a few pages in length I don’t want the Blog Kings to give me an “F” on my Blogging report card so I will provide the Coles notes by putting certain areas in italics for you to easily scan with your eyes.  Please note organizing services are a personal service so detailed reports are important to clients especially in a crisis situation. Prior to any consultation we always ask clients what their 3 biggest concerns are so OMP can be prepared for the consultation plus we have the opportunity to make sure all their concerns have been answered during the session. All reports have been adjusted for confidentiality purposes but they will provide you with a great understanding of what can be done for your particular life situation.

Informative Organizing Reports

My aim is to blog about these reports as quickly as possible so 1-2 reports per month.  These reports all deal with the 4 “D” categories but have different circumstances pertaining to the client.  If you have any questions regarding a report, ask away!  Also comments are appreciated, whether they are good or bad because it is how we grow as a company knowing what you like and don’t like.  Please note since Organize Me Please deals in life circumstances that are not always pleasant, we ensure that every client is heard and their needs are met BUT we make sure that we take time to laugh during the organizing project because life is a journey and laughing is allowed along the path!


First example report deals with a senior downsizing and such tasks as decluttering, purging, packing, moving and setup their new home.  Stay tuned!
