The start of a new year kindles enthusiasm in some homeowners to create a more organized household. But when it comes time to actually do the work, we realize organization takes more time and patience than most of us have. We may need the help of a professional organizer. The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota (BBB) offers advice to homeowners before they hire someone to come into their homes to sort through confidential paperwork and valuables.
“Organizing our homes is an important task and often helps us feel happier in our surroundings,” said Dana Badgerow, president and CEO of the BBB. “But you want to be certain you understand what an organizer does – and doesn’t – do, and how he or she operates before you allow them access to your home.”
