Get the Organizing Help You Need (Finally!)

Clutter and disarray driving you bonkers? Perhaps it’s finally time to call in some organizing help. Whether you need assistance with a large room or a small closet, or you need an entire household reboot, this guide can get you started.
First steps: Search Houzz for closet and home storage designers and organizers and check with the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO). Or ask friends for recommendations.

When you contact each of the organizers on your list, have the details of your project ready to share (a few emailed pictures can be helpful) as well as a list of questions to ask, including about rates and price structure, services provided and the pro’s approach to organizing. Remember, this is someone with whom you will be working quite closely in your home, so beyond credentials, be sure you also click on a personal level.
