list of reasons to hire a professional organizer for your organizing needs

I have just returned from Baltimore, where it was my very good fortune to have spent 3 days in the company of a host of professional organizers attending the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO).  We were there to show them the benefits and advantages of having hundreds of printable lists available to print or download at ListPlanIt, and they in turn reminded me of the multitude of ways that they make a difference in the lives of overwhelmed people everyday.  We have two things in common: 1) we use our skills and energy to help organize people’s lives and 2) we are listmakers.  It is a beautiful things to watch a group of professionals become giddy at the sight of so many lists.

While lists can be used to create plans, inventory items, plan schedules, track to dos, check off your progress, and much more, there may be times when you need some outside help.  A Professional Organizer might just be the person for the job.  This is a group of people that have a whole host of systems, advice, know-how, and muscle, ready to assist you in solving personal, family, and business challenges.  Here is a list of some reasons to consider finding a personal organizer near you or contacting a professional organizer from around the globe to advise and encourage you.    If you don’t know where to get started, check out our Professional Directory full of organizers and coaches who not only have access to all of the resources available at, but would be willing to assist you in gaining control in any area of your life.
