If you’re feeling overwhelmed, a professional organizer may be just what you need to get back on track and into your post-summer routine. Paying for the services of an organizer can undo the mess your kids may have caused while home on summer vacation and, in the process, get them prepared to properly take on the new school year.
“In the summer, everything goes,” says Krystal Cooper, owner of We Organize! In Kansas City, Mo. “You need to get ready to pack lunches again, get the kids ready for soccer and football practice and get back to that routine.”
Professional home organizers work closely with customers to determine what areas of a home can benefit the most from being reviewed and organized, whether it’s a kitchen, bedroom or garage. They can also advise you about what to do with all those school supplies, homework and books so they don’t get lost or misplaced.
“Organizing saves you a lot of time looking for things,” Cooper said. “You won’t spend 15 minutes each day looking for your keys. It’s also more comfortable for the children. Everything goes smoother when everything has a place.”
