Why have I not been able to do this myself?

Disorganization and clutter happens slowly, over a long period of time. Year after year it gets a little bit worse, but never at a rate that stops you in your tracks and forces you to deal with it. Before you know it, significant time, skill and effort are required to get your space back under control. At some point the organizing job becomes so much more than one person can tackle, so it gets avoided and might even become a source of shame and embarrassment. The fact is, you have enough other tasks to keep you busy. Let us take care of your organizational needs!
