How to Choose...

How do you choose the right organizer for your needs?

While some people may need an organizer to help with a particular space, others are looking for an organizer to support them through one of life's many transitions, while still others may want to work with an organizer with special training and certification. 

The best organizer for you is the one with the skills and personality that meets your needs. If you begin working with an organizer who is not the right fit, let him or her know. Your organizer may be able to recommend a colleague more suited to the project.
