  You may be surprised to hear this, but even professional organisers have their moments when they need to (re)organise their home.

Organizers don’t have a crystal ball to show them what their home will look like after we have worked with them, so we have to build trust to enable the client to grant us permission to change their lives. I have client who books me every quarter for a few hours to assess her home, organize a room which is disorganized and advise what she needs to declutter or Read More
