Declutter these 6 areas before you move

Moving is stressful at the best of times. Packing boxes, moving them and unpacking at the other side is tedious and time consuming. One of the ways to make this easier is to declutter before you move and only pack what you use and love. I encourage clients to start with 6 areas that will make a huge difference in your new home.

Spring (cleaning) is around the corner

It’s nearly September, and for those of us I the Southern Hemisphere this means Spring is around the corner.

When I think of Spring I think of longer days, with warm sunshine intermingled with rain clouds and cold mornings and evenings. I think of the beautiful carpets of veld flowers up the West Coast and I think of the promise of summer!

AND THEN I think of Spring Cleaning. Cleaning house from top to bottom, packing away winter woollies, and having my home sparkling and ready for the summer ahead.

Please don’t leave me your clutter!

Please don’t leave me your clutter!

A few month’s ago I worked with a young woman who had lost her mom, and needed to clear out her home. She had called me in as her time was limited, and she needed to get the house sorted as quickly as possible. Even though she had visited her mom on a weekly basis, and been inside her home regularly, she was not prepared for the onslaught of stuff in cupboards, under beds, in boxes in top cupboards and the garage, along with paperwork and memorabilia in all corners of her mom’s home.

Decided to sell your house? Now what?

Decided to sell your house? Now what?

I am working with a couple who have made the decision to make their last move into a small retirement home. Over 28 years they have filled their large family home to the brim. It is a daunting task, and they called me in to help get their home ready to sell. It is a lovely home, with lots of light, and lots of space, but completely lost under all the stuff. So, armed with a plan, along with boxes, bags, bins and a large van to fill with recycling and donations, we are moving mountains (well almost!)

Moving house is a stressful time! So once you have made the decision to move, take time to think about everything that needs to get done before the moving truck arrives. Make lists and have a schedule of all the things that need doing and by when. To help you with this process here is a schedule I share with clients to help them make this transition as easy as possible.

Article in Living and Loving Magazine

When I started as a professional Organiser I tackled all sorts of projects, and was very lucky to write articles about organising for several publications.

I was recently approached by Living and Loving to talk about organising children’s toys.

While I now work predominantly with Seniors, I love sharing the joys and advantages of being organised and thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with Living&Loving again

Let the past go and focus on the future

Years ago, right at the beginning of my career as a Professional Organiser, I started a list of things I came across while helping people declutter, downsize and move on. Things that meant something at some point in their lives, but things that were holding them back from a new chapter:

Why Overwhelmed Seniors are Disorganised

Here we are again working with an elderly couple who are downsizing from their family home to a retirement bedsit. The family are completely taken aback at how disorganised they are, how much stuff there is and how difficult it is for them to let go. This is not unique! We see this time and again when assisting Seniors with a move or simple declutter. With that in mind, I thought this was worth sharing again!
