Twitter Facebook Email Print Have you ever been overwhelmed by the disorganization of your closets? Do you avoid opening that one drawer? Have you ever started an organizing project, given up (cried a little), and just gone back to the way it’s always been? If you answered yes to any of the above, then you are just like me. Which is why I am SO happy that Astoria has Drea Montali a local Professional Organizer that can tackle any big project you’ve been avoiding, organize any space, and is just downright pleasant to work with. The project that I actively avoided? The space that constantly overwhelmed me? The project that I attempted to take on myself but gave up on. My pantry closet. Yes the above picture is truly what I was working with, or rather was working me. It was beyond a mess, it was beyond disorganized but with Drea guiding me it became… THIS. Also after 4 weeks post organization it STILL looks like this. I sat down with Drea and asked her why you should higher a Professional Organizer, and here’s what she had to say! “Whether its boxes of old photos, or clothing we haven’t worn in years, we all have items that can cause clutter. Working with a pro to tackle these areas will make the process a lot easier for you. Professional Organizers help you sort through these items and decide what stays, gets donated or discarded. We then piece it all back together by creating a system that is simple for you to maintain. #clutterconquered” “Sometimes we get too comfortable with how we use our space. Having a fresh set of eyes can shake things up; usually for the better. Clients would call me for a consultation and say things like “I doubt there is anything you can do with this space, it’s just so small.” After taking measurements and assessing their storage needs, I would design two to three options. The client would usually respond with “Wow, I didn’t even think that was possible.”” “Good organization can save you time and money! The average person loses around 1 year of their life looking for things. Also when you buy the same hot sauce three different times because they are all buried in different areas of your refrigerator, that’s a waste! As a organizer I want to give my clients more time and more money!” “A main reason people call up a P.O. is because clutter and disorganization is adding unwanted stress to everyday life. Clutter can signal to our brain that our work is never finished. That is a very stressful way to live and an organizer can help to relieve anxiety and help you relax more.” I can’t tell you how awesome it felt to complete this project, and I can attest to EVERYTHING Drea has said about the benefits of getting organized and working with a professional.
