One way to explain it is by sharing a blog post I wrote on the top 5 things clients say while we organize: 5) "What the heck is this?" - I hear this all the time. When digging into those paper piles, or reaching far back in those closets and drawers, we find all kinds of forgotten items. This often leads to...
4) "That's where this is!" - I love it when a client rediscovers a buried treasure, like a special photo, book, or note. But more often, I hear...
3) "Why did I ever keep this?" - Sometimes, we need to hold onto items for a while before we are willing to part with them. Working with a professional organizer provides a sounding board to think a bit more deeply about what items are meaningful and should be kept, and what can go without guilt. 2) "Holy cow - MONEY!" - Sometimes it's loose change, sometimes a bill or two tucked into a pocket. Often it's a forgotten gift card. Every once in a while, it's a large uncashed check. Almost every client I have worked with finds money at some point in our time together. That's always fun!
1) "I wish I hadn't waited so long!" - Getting organized is very rewarding (not just because of the found money). It brings clarity, a sense of calm, and decreases stress levels. Not to mention a more efficient and inviting space that is so much nicer to come home to!

How much do I need to clean up before you come to my house?
Actually, we prefer that you leave things exactly as they are right now. In order to get a true sense of how your spaces are functioning each day, we need to see your house the way you see it and live in it on a daily basis.
Are you going to make me throw everything out?
Of course not! We organize your area together, and although we provide feedback and suggestions, decisions on what to keep, what to donate, and what to discard are entirely up to you. Remember - YOU are the one who lives in your space - so the space needs to work for YOU!
Organizing Magic provides hands-on organizing sessions with clients in their homes and offices. Jodi also enjoys speaking to groups around the greater St. Louis area about the benefits of getting organized.
