Clean-up coach: the expert for tidying up and organising

ordnung machen

Ever heard of a "Professional Organizer"? This profession actually exists. People practising it also call themselves clean-up coaches or order specialists . They help their customers to organise themselves optimally: whether it's sorting and organising things or personal time management.

In Anglo-Saxon countries, this profession has been firmly established since the 1980s. It has now also arrived in here in Switzerland. Since 2016, there exists even the associated professional association - the Swiss Association of Professional Organizers (Swiss-APO).

It is not surprising that the profession is in demand. Cleaning out and tidying up is a lifestyle these days. The reasons for this are many and varied: on the one hand, we live in a chaotic world and would like to keep at least our home in order. We want to feel comfortable, create a pleasant atmosphere and get the feeling of being in the right place. On the other hand we simply own more and more things and have to make sure that everything has its place.

Sufficient storage space for a tidy apartment

The crux of cleaning up is that order is not permanent. If you want to keep order, you have to organize yourself. It is helpful to create sufficient storage space: cupboards and tidy boxes in which every object keeps its place without the rooms looking cluttered.

If you don't have enough space in your home for keeping things tidy, you can move things out that are not used every day. A dry personal self storage room, for example, offers space for equipment, clothes, old toys or furniture. The decisive factor is that the storage facility must be easily and quickly accessible and accessible at all times. This means that nothing stands in the way of a spontaneous ski trip or fondue evening, even when the equipment is in storage.
