GOing, GOing, Gone! Kick Clutter to the Curb with a Professional Organizer During Get Organized Month

ATLANTA, G.A. – January 1, 2012 – Helping homeowners and businesses with their New Year’s resolutions to get more organized, January marks the National Association of Professional Organizers’ 8th annual Get Organized MonthSM. This month-long initiative is dedicated to empowering individuals and businesses to retake control of the chaos by providing the resources, tools and educational programming to get started.

“The aftermath of the holidays is often a house full of clutter, and the office is in disarray with files and emails piled at capacity from budget planning season,” said Angela F. Wallace CPO®, President of the National Association of Professional Organizers. “Becoming more organized can help reduce stress, saves time and money, increases productivity and can enhance the quality of your life.”

In a NAPO conducted survey, 96 percent of respondents felt that they could save at least some time each day if they were more organized at home, and 91 percent felt they could be more efficient at work if they were better organized. Additionally, 71 percent indicated their quality of life would improve with more organization. Price Waterhouse Cooper estimates that workers spend nearly 50% of their time looking for information because it is not organized properly.

Professional organizers use tested principles and expertise to enhance their client’s lives by designing custom organizing systems and teaching personalized organization skills. During Get Organized (GO) Month, select NAPO chapters and thousands of members will host public events including, Ask-the-Organizer panels, Organize to Economize in the New Year workshops, Shred-and-Organize events and much more.

“The beginning of a new year is a great time to jumpstart organizing your home or business,” said Wallace. “A NAPO member can help you with room-by- room assessment, organizing a move, improve digital filing processes and enhance business work-flow systems.”
