Holiday Help

Are you feeling overwhelmed with the holiday season approaching? Do you find yourself constantly searching for that one gift you bought last year, or struggling to find a place to store all the new decorations and gifts? It may be time to consider hiring a professional organizer.

Professional organizers can help you declutter and reorganize your space, making it easier to find what you need and creating a more functional and enjoyable living environment. This can be especially beneficial during the busy holiday season when our homes often become cluttered with new gifts and decorations.

Here are a few reasons why you should consider enlisting the help of a professional organizer during the holiday season:

  1. Reduce Stress: The holidays can be a stressful time, with lots of events, parties, and obligations. A professional organizer can help you create systems and processes that make it easier to manage the chaos, allowing you to focus on enjoying the season rather than feeling overwhelmed.
  2. Create More Space: With all the new gifts and decorations that come with the holiday season, it can be hard to find a place to store everything. A professional organizer can help you declutter and find creative storage solutions, so you can make the most of the space you have.
  3. Get a Fresh Start: The start of a new year is a great time to reevaluate your living space and make any necessary changes. Working with a professional organizer can help you set yourself up for success and create a more organized and efficient home environment for the year ahead.
  4. Save Time: It can be time-consuming to declutter and reorganize your home on your own. A professional organizer can help you streamline the process and get it done more efficiently, so you can get back to enjoying the holiday season.



If you’re ready to enlist the help of a professional organizer to make the most of the holiday season, here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Make a list of the areas of your home that need the most attention and prioritize them.
  • Consider the needs and schedules of your family when scheduling appointments with a professional organizer.
  • Set aside some time to go through your belongings and decide what you want to keep, donate, or throw away.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask for help! Professional organizers are experts at creating systems and solutions that work for you and your family.

Enlisting the help of a professional organizer during the holiday season can be a game-changer. Not only will it help you reduce stress and create more space in your home, but it can also set you up for success for the start of a new year. So if you’re feeling overwhelmed with all the holiday chaos, consider hiring a professional organizer to help you get organized and enjoy the season.

Decluttering Tips To Keep Your Home Clean For Good

Ease Up was recently featured in a blog post about decluttering your home from the company, Bin There Dump That. Here is what we had to say:

Decluttering means decision time! Which items do you keep and which items need to go?

Most people who are decluttering feel psychologically overwhelmed and tight on space. One great question that often helps people make swift decisions when deciding whether to keep or release an item is “what do I want more right now?… more space? or this item?”

Most people are decluttering because they are starting to realize the wellness that comes from living within their spacial means. In other words, a lot of people are waking up to the energetically draining “cost” of having more physical items that reasonably fit into their space.

It is wise to remind yourself while you are editing your items that you are engaging in this task because you are longing for more order, ease, clear surfaces and easy-to-find items

Brampton Library – Organize With Ease Seminar

Professional Organizer and founder of “Ease Up – The Organizing Experts”, Lindsay Whisen, delivered a workshop for the Brampton Library summer series in which she demonstrated organization tips to help attendees win the battle against clutter. She showed you how to start decluttering and how to stay organized. The workshop was very well received by the participants.

Here’s What Happened When I Hired a Professional Organizer

As someone surrounded by her share of “do it yourself” attitudes, asking for professional help came hard to me. At work, I was organized and could easily knock off a to-do list like nobody’s business. But that same level of organization didn’t translate over to my home space, and it was clear…I needed help.

Conquer the Clutter
It’s no secret that space is a commodity – homes are just getting smaller and smaller. When I set out to declutter our spare bedroom (for the umpteenth time), the overwhelm was intense. Sure, I could have just ‘cleaned up’ and tossed everything out that accumulated in our tiny room, but that didn’t solve the problem at its core: we really had no idea how to organize our living space and actually stay clutter-free.

It was there in my dumping yard that I realized that professional organizers exist for a reason.

Just as you call an accountant when it’s time to do your taxes, or visit your mechanic when you hear a rattle coming from the car — that was how I approached seeking out a professional organizer. Sure, I could do my own taxes and change my own car oil, but just because I can doesn’t mean I should. There are people much more qualified to do those things. I knew hiring a professional organizer wouldn’t be cheap. So, I did a little research on industry rates, and while they were premium, I knew that the investment would be worth it. Why? Because no amount of organizational hack articles or DIY gusto would save me. I had already tried the DIY route and the clutter was only getting worse. I needed an objective, experienced opinion to help me move forward.
