Rediscovering Your Possessions
When we are helping clients organize, we often find that
people had many possessions that they forgot about.With so many different items in one’s life,
it can become easy to lose track of the stock of what you have, which is why
being organized is so important.Because
we help people rediscover their possessions, we help them to save time and money.
Finding key items saves people from going
out and purchasing a replacement item for no reason.
Similarly, we find that people have multiples of several
items.Items such as shovels, brooms,
and even caulking guns are often needed intermittently throughout the seasons
or stages in one’s life and so, if things are not organized, these items may be
lost.Occasionally, items are lost a few
times, leading to purchases of more items to replace those that were misplaced.Some clients have lamented that they didn’t
know they had a certain item and had either missed the opportunity to use it or
bought another.Organizing homes and
other spaces can reveal items that have been forgotten and save people from
buying another or allow them to get rid of unneeded items.
