Get Schooled: Homework Help Desk
I have three kids in school in various grades and at one time or another they all seem to need help with homework. When they were younger, this really wasn't a big deal. However...
Do you ever look around your home and feel overwhelmed by all the stuff in it? If so, you’re not alone. Clutter can build up gradually over time and when you’re leading a busy life, it’s easy to overlook it until it becomes a problem.
The good news is, it doesn't have to stay that way – decluttering and professional home organizing can help turn your home into a calm and composed dream.
Simply put, it’s the process of getting rid of things that you don’t need or use any longer, or never needed and never used!
It’s a process that, when done properly, pushes you to think about everything you own and whether you want to keep it.
It sounds like a lot, but it’s easy to break the process down into small, manageable chunks. Start with a single drawer. Or a shelf. Or the pile of post on the worktop. But don’t cheat! Take everything out of that space and make a decision about each and everything. Do you want it, need it or use it? Does it deserve to have space in your home?
Home organizers are experts at this process and they’ll take you through the highs and lows. When motivation is waning, they’ll pep you up. When you can’t see an end to it, they’ll keep you focussed. Their job is to get you from start to finish and help you to make decisions about everything in your home.
A good home organizer will take you beyond that though. They’ll help you design and organize your home to function better for you and your lifestyle. They’ll help you to create storage and organization systems tailored to your specific needs, whether you live alone, or have a family of 7.
If you feel like you don’t know where to start, or you don’t have the time or the inclination to get your home organized, then maybe yes.
Home organization is a specific skill set, and good professionals have lots of experience in dealing with all kinds of different challenges. From mountains of clothes, to awkward storage spaces, chances are they’ve seen it all before, and know how to turn them around and create calm and manageable spaces.
There’s no reason for everyone to be good at everything, so hiring a pro could save you masses of time, stress and energy from trying to do it all yourself.
Often our clutter and disorder builds up in layers, and it’s hard to take a step back and see how to unpick years of hiding things in cupboards, or overbuying because you can’t find things. A professional is that objective onlooker who can give you patient, reasonable advice and support to create the home you want.
