Makeover for CNN producer's desk

One CNN producer set herself a New Year's resolution to clean her desk. She got help from professional organizer Jaclyn Gross, who also gave tips on cleaning up and what to know before hiring a professional organizer.

Jaclyn's tips for hiring a professional organizer:

  • Check if organizer is a member of National Association of Professional Organizer and follow its Code of Ethics
  • Make sure the organizer is insured
  • Request that work is confidential
  • Talk to organizer before you hire to make sure you are compatible
  • Look for someone who is non-judgmental
  • Ensure the organizer is able to handle your situation and comes prepared with all the necessary supplies
  • Go over payment amount and terms before work starts
