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!)

Help! Mom and Dad are moving

Help! Mom and Dad are moving

My parents moved into a retirement home 4 years ago and settled in really well. We were lucky that they were ready for the change. We were lucky that they had moved many times in their 60 years together. We were lucky that each time they moved, they sorted and let go anything they no longer needed or loved. We were lucky (believe it or not) that they believe in buying the best they could afford, making things last, reusing and repurposing items in their home.

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.

Clutter Caused by Guilt & Nostalgia

In the course of my work I find many of my clients struggle with family heirlooms, old family photographs, unwanted gifts and nostalgia in general.
This article I wrote a few years ago could help you and your loved ones through the difficult decisions regarding letting go of family history and memorabilia.

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

“Sorry, I cant, I’m too busy!”

“I’m so busy!”

“It’s hectic at the moment”

“There’s no time!”

“I don’t have time!”

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:
