How the Public Really Feels About Organizing

Sharon Lowenheim & Stephanie McGrath

What does the public know about our profession? How do they view their own organizing habits, attitudes, and behaviors? How concerned are they about the environment when they dispose of items? Does their technology make them feel more or less organized? What factors influence someone's decision to hire a particular organizer? Is there a typical organizing client

Join us for the answers to these and other questions as we present the result of the 2019 public survey.


  • Report on trends from the most recent public survey
  • Identify how the environment has changed from the last public survey three years ago
  • Discuss how we can apply newly-acquired knowledge to our work with clients
