Hello, world! Welcome to the Perfectly Purged blog. I’m Mindy Padron, owner and professional home organizer at Perfectly Purged in Edmonton, Alberta.
Our blog will focus on timely home organization tips, our process at Perfectly Purged, and the odd company update.
On Hiring A Home Organizer
In our first piece, I’m going to discuss the why behind hiring a professional home organizer – and not just from a practical sense. We’ve only got 24 hours in a day to live life well, and home organization can sure eat up that time – but more on that below.
Plus, as the Holiday season beckons and snow rises in Edmonton, we’ll chat about how professional home organization services can help keep sanity in check and boost fun levels during the haze of work parties, family parties, and out-of-town visitors.
With that, let’s dive in. Grab a coffee and get comfortable!
It’s More Than Just A Clean Living Room
Whether you live in an apartment, a condo, a bungalow, or a sprawling mansion – one thing our clients all have in common is a bustling, busy schedule and not enough hours in the day.
Time is one of those things you just can’t do anything about. You can’t save it up, you can’t move some over to the next day. You only get 24 hours.
Eight of those hours should be spent sleeping, and on most days for most people, another eight is often spent working. That leaves just eight hours left each day for errands, extracurriculars, grocery shopping, nurturing your friendships and relationships, getting a little exercise, and having enough time to relax!
With that in mind, it’s easy to see how things can get messy. It’s also easy to see how many people just have enough bandwidth for the basics and resolve to save the rest for another day.
That’s where we get to the crux of it all. In my experience, the majority of our clients are at a place in life where they’re overwhelmed with their environment and their growing list of tasks.They can’t see past what’s in front of them, and the mental dread of tackling hours of cleaning can seem insurmountable and distressing.
So, yeah, it is more than just a clean living room. Hiring a home organizer in Edmonton can help alleviate the mental burden of having a cluttered home. A professional organizer can provide you with systems and tools to ensure that it’s easier for you to maintain the cleaning after we’ve done our job.
We Can Be Objective
While we know cleaning and home organization can be a sensitive issue for our clients, we are not connected emotionally to the task at hand, so we can be objective.
We can walk into a room and easily come up with a plan. It’s intuitive. For each space or room, we know we need to break things down into categories, which helps us develop a functional plan for getting (and keeping) things super organized.
We always ask our clients for their perspectives on where personal items should go, but if it’s just general items like clothing or general housewares, we can separate items out and make decisions quickly.
Bottom line? We’re very precise and perceptive – and we hone in on tasks to complete them quickly.
Perfectly Purged: Your Holiday Helpers!
Remember all my talk about how many hours we actually have in the run of a day earlier? When December rolls around – that decreases even more! Juggling daily life with holiday fun seriously eats up that precious time.
Most people’s calendars in December fill up quickly. Kid activities, parties, dinners, parades, shopping, and more. The list is twice as long as dear old Saint Nick’s!
The last thing people have time for is a deep clean of the house. We come in to alleviate the mental and physical burden. We help get some of your time back.
How, specifically? Here’s just a handful of ways we’re helpful during the holidays:
Prepping our customer’s homes for company.
Decluttering washrooms and bedrooms.
Clearing clutter from ‘dumping’ rooms and around the home.
Clearing old holiday decor. Got an old tree? Outdated ornaments? Maybe you did a little home holiday rebrand. Whatever the reason, why not get rid of that decor that’s been sitting in the basement?
Kitchen and pantry overhaul - perfect for upcoming large family dinners. We can help make everything clean and make it so that anyone can walk into the space and help right away instead of looking around and distracting you!
