In 2009, I did not have cable TV. I did not know about shows called “Hoarders” or “Clean Sweep” or even that there were people called Professional Organizers, or a National Association of Professional Organizers (now called National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals) (NAPO).
After I helped someone go through numerous boxes in preparation for moving to a new home, helped facilitate the move and set up of her new home, she said to me, “You mean they pay people to do this?” So, it came as a surprise when, after a bit of research and a visit to the local NAPO chapter, I discovered a profession I love.
Many people hesitate to call a Professional Organizer because they fear they will be judged for their “messy house” assuming that, as someone who does organizing for a living, I must live in an incredibly organized home. Be assured that my home is no more organized than most people’s homes. (You remember that the shoemaker’s children had no shoes? Well the organizer’s house is not always organized.) So, if you are afraid to make the first phone call, don’t be. I know that we all live busy lives and sometimes things get out of control. However, all it takes is a bit of courage and a phone call to start living a RieOrganized! life! So, call or text us today at 215.435.5609 and let us help.
