Dollar for dollar, hiring a professional organizer to help expedite the project and keep you on task will cost less than the cost of renting the unit for a another year; not to mention the peace of mind you’ll achieve once you’ve cleared out all the “stuff” and moved on with living your life!
The National Association of Professional Organizers has designated January as Get Organized (GO) Month. The event is dedicated to raising awareness of the benefits of getting organized by hiring a professional organizer who has the ability to enhance the lives of his/her clients by creating individualized systems and processes, which can help people get organized. Year after year, getting organized is one of the top five New Year’s resolutions; making January the ideal time to “Get Organized.”

Setting-up a simple three-file filing system to help you keep track of your paperwork and tax papers is the easiest way to keep on top of the paperwork year round. All you need are three files, one marked “taxes,” one marked “taxes/medical” and one marked “donations” and you’re on your way to being organized.
