Let's face it, we are spending more time indoors, spring is on the way, and it's about time we get our shit together. Folks who use virtual organizing services often say, "I know I can do this - now tell me what to do." Perhaps you have always wanted to work with a professional organizer and you are curious about the whole process of chaos to order?! Many people are familiar with the “hands-on” method of working with professional organizers. When working hands-on, the organizer and client agree on a date and time, the organizer travels to the client’s home, and together they make a plan and transform the space. The organizer works independently (or with the client work side-by-side), helping the client to make decisions about their organizing goals, then choosing what to keep or discard, find a home for everything, and how to make the best use out of your space. Organizers will typically help to donate, pack, and move large quantities of stuff in the process.
What is Virtual Organizing? Virtual Organizing is the innovative process of helping you to become organized remotely using technology such as telephone, email, digital photos, videos, and video calls. Similar to on-site organizing sessions, Virtual Organizing includes structured planning, space-saving arrangements, product suggestion lists, and various organizing tips. The only difference is you do the physical organizing and we provide off-site virtual support.
There are many reasons why a virtual organizing service would be beneficial to your life - Let's dive in!
1. YOU ARE MOTIVATED & PHYSICALLY CAPABLE TO ORGANIZE YOUR SPACE!
You feel confident you can commit your time to getting the job done, but recognize you could use structure and accountability throughout the process. Fortunately, you are not limited physically nor lack the motivation to get sorted. But, doesn't mean you couldn't use some guidance. Professional organizer will guide you with a structured and customized plan, help you with potential space saving arrangements, suggest useful products, and provide you with various organizing tips throughout your process.
2. YOU ARE LONG DISTANCE!
If you live somewhere across Canada or simply out of range with your professional organizer than virtual organizing is a fantastic option. It will save from paying any potential travel fees!
3. YOU ARE ON A BUDGET! $$$
Virtual organizing services are, in comparison, more affordable than on-site organizing services because professional organizers can conduct the virtual meeting in short time lengths which saves both the client and the professional organizer time.
4. YOU WOULD LOVE TO HAVE AN ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER!
An accountability partner is a person with whom you share your goals and your progress towards those goals. Your professional organizer will help you stay committed to your organization related goals and dramatically increase your chances of reaching your organization related goals!
5. YOUR SCHEDULE MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO COORDINATE!
Virtual organizing provides more time flexibility – no more need to block out an entire half-day for an organizing session!
6. YOU LOVE SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESSES!
Who doesn't love to support a small business. It feels great to support other folks' dreams and receive great service!
7. YOU NEED A FRESH PERSPECTIVE!
You recognize that the way you have been tidying has not been sufficient. A fresh perspective is in order!
"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result." - Albert Einstein
8. YOU WANT TO LEARN HOW TO BETTER ORGANIZE YOUR HOME AND YOUR LIFE!
Really organized people are not born organized, they have to cultivate these habits, which then helps them to stay organized. So even if you see yourself as a naturally messy or disorganized person, you can still learn to be more organized as long as you're willing to learn and practice.
9. YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU SHOULD & SHOULD NOT BUY FOR YOUR SPACE!
Many clients have told me that they would like to buy new organization products to enhance their space, but have no idea where to look and what they actually need. Professional organizer help you customize your space with exactly what you need while still maintaining your aesthetics. It's best of both worlds!
10. YOU WANT TO KNOW WHERE YOU SHOULD GIVE YOUR DONATION ITEMS!
Your professional organizer knows all the best spots to donate your donations. Get Sorted is a big supporter of local registered charities and reducing items going into the landfill. Your organizer will provide relevant resources to you so that you can donate your unwanted items.
