NEAT FIND - ORGANIZATION!











NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZERS

Perfect assistance for Spring Cleaning...

Being organized is no longer a frivolous endeavor, it is a necessary factor in our busy stressful lives. Our economy is still struggling, and we have to work beyond our retirement and beyond our energy, plus care for ourselves and our families.

How do we do it all when time is still so limited?
We have to be organized to be efficient.

The most important guru to better health and prosperity is now the infamous Professional Organizer. A professional organizer is the latest go-to, filling a need somewhere between a personal trainer and a private secretary. For those of us who feel overwhelmed by our responsibilities and our stuff and a desire to be organized, this group of professional organizers is the answer.

I have been in the interior design and construction industry for over twenty years, specializing in designing cabinetry for organization. I design closets, home offices, garages, pantries and any space of the house that needs better use of it's storage. Several years ago I was referred by a client to a professional organizer who had come into her home after I had built the client her closets and garage cabinets and helped this client put everything away -
in order.

This was Lanna Nakone Cairns, a professional organizer and member of a prestigious association; N.A.P.O. (National Association of Professional Organizers). Lanna and other Professional Organizers and I have been working with clients ever since. We work together in creating organization and efficiency for our clients busy lives. We assist them in saving time and preserving their personal effects.

NAPO, the National Association of Professional Organizers started in Los Angeles, California in 1985. There are now over 2000 professional organizers with NAPO across the United States today going to monthly meetings, educating themselves in the current devices and systems to Keep America Clean - Organized!

Finally one day, I asked Lanna, my new friend and colleague to come to my house and give me some pointers. Although I am quite fastidious and know how to organize, so I assumed, I wanted her professional advice.

Lanna came on a Friday afternoon, in a whirl she told me exactly what to do, how to do it, showed me solutions and spirited me on my task. Generally she continues to work hand in hand with a client, but she just helped me for that day and I worked the rest of the week end. I was all done by Sunday night, on organizing what I had been putting off for years. I needed Lanna to get me started, I needed her to point the direction, I needed a plan and I needed her coaching and expertise. Now it is a pleasure working in my home office and getting much more done.

Be sure to contact a Professional Organizer, they will save you time and money and get you excited about being organized and proficient.
