Organizing Resources

Information about professional organizers and organizing, challenging disorganization, and finding local resources for items you no longer want or need to have in your space.

I have to admit that my very favourite resource is Google!  There is an amazing world of information and resources available to all of us, right at our fingertips.  But I do have some “go to” resources that I recommend as well.

Information about Professional Organizers and Organizing

In Canada: Professional Organizers in Canada

In the US: The National Association of Professional Organizers

In Australia:  The Australasian Association of Professional Organisers

In Great Britain: The Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers (UK)

In Japan: Japan Association of Life Organizers

Information about Challenging Disorganization, including professional organizers with education in this area:

Institute for Challenging Disorganization

Finding local resources for items you no longer want or need to have in your space: One person’s junk is another person’s treasure…

To find a new home for items that are still useful, but not for you, post them in your local freecycle group and someone will come to your home and take it away.  Note:  do not use this as a way to gather material you might make use of some day!  If you or someone you love has hoarding tendencies, this is a dangerous way for them to acquire lots of free stuff.

In Canada, one of my favourites is the Canadian Diabetes Association’s  Clothesline.  They will put you on a phone list and call every couple of months to see if you have clothes and small household items to donate – of course you do! – then come and pick up the bags from your front door, then take it to local thrift stores, where the sponsoring association earns money for the donation.
