Professional Organisers are a fairly mixed bunch. Some of us were once messy and learned techniques and hacks to make life easier. Others have always had a love of systems and order, myself included.
So what does a professional organiser’s house look like?
Well, I can only speak for mine.
Firstly, a disclaimer – it’s old. And I’m not into keeping up with the Jones’, so while I love modern interior design my house does not reflect that. It’s not recently renovated or refurbished.
I have a low tolerance for clutter, so it’s sparsely furnished.
I understand that having less stuff makes organising a lot easier, so my cupboards are not full.
I sometimes use containers within cupboards to maintain order. But I don’t overdo it, because I enjoy simplicity and dislike landfill.
I am mindful of what I bring in, because I know how insidious clutter is.
I put things away.
I love labels.
I teach my kids how to sort and categorise, but they are still messy.
So what does a professional organiser’s house look like? Like this. Nothing special.
