Organizing vs. Renovation – “not enough space, or too much stuff?”

Organizing vs. renovation – surprisingly, most people will automatically assume they do not have enough space in their home and not even consider it isn’t the square footage of the home. Is it actually the possessions in the home or even the organization (or lack of) that is the real issue?  If you have been considering a renovation to your home because you “need more space” consider hiring a Professional Organizer (PO) before you start knocking down or adding walls!

Why? It’s really a win win situation!

First, the PO will help you sort through your items and help you determine if there is anything you just don’t need or want anymore. No sense packing up and storing items to go into your new space if you don’t really want them.

Second, the PO can discuss your renovation plans and help you determine some key items to consider including in your renovation to maximize efficiency and organization. After decluttering and determining solutions to the deficiencies in the current space, you may realize, it wasn’t really a lack of space, it was just a space lacking proper organization and possibly too much unneeded stuff.

What you spend for the PO’s time and expertise could actually save you thousands of dollars in an unnecessary renovation.  Or, after working with the PO, you still feel the renovation is needed, then you are left with only the items you want, fresh ideas for making your new space organized, useable and ready for the renovations to begin. WIN, WIN!
