What to expect when we work together.

  • During an initial conversation, by phone or face to face, we’ll get to know each other and you can explain what you’re hoping to achieve from the work.  

  • We’ll agree a time for your first in home session where we’ll work together to sort through your items deciding what to keep or discard.  I always leave time at the end of the session to organise your storage, making sure that everything you love and need has a home that works with your lifestyle. 

  • I’ll give you some tips and techniques as we work so that you can keep your space clutter free.  We can arrange homework and follow up sessions depending on the size of the task in hand.

Do you need my help?

Overflowing bookcases, exploding wardrobes and piles of paperwork are examples of clutter, caused by having too much unorganised “stuff” in your home. 

Clutter also spills into our digital lives with out of control email inboxes and hundreds of photos clogging up our phones. 

Studies have shown that having too much clutter in our lives increases stress levels, disturbs sleep, drains our energy and gets in the way of us enjoying our lives. 

If you want a clutter free life then I’m here to help... see the services I offer below.

Organise your paperwork

Paperwork can quickly build up if it’s not dealt with, it gets everywhere… by the front door, on kitchen counters, in dining rooms or bedrooms.  If you’re lucky, it sometimes makes it to the study!  Working together we'll clear the paper mountain in your home or office.

  • I'll help you work through your personal papers, warranties, appliance manuals and any outstanding papers and documents.  I'll advise on what to keep, why and for how long.

  • I'll review your current filing system or setting up a new one with you to make sure that you can easily find something as soon as it’s needed.

  • I'll suggest new habits to keep on top of the paper that arrives in your home every day.

  • I can also set up a notification system so that you can keep on top of repeat prescriptions, regular appointments and annual renewals such as insurance or financial products.

Moving or Downsizing

If you’re downsizing or moving to a bigger house then seize the opportunity to sort through your possessions and clear out anything you no longer need.  I can work with you to take some of the stress out of your house move and help to ensure a fresh, clutter free start in your new home. ​

  • Decluttering before your house goes on the market will help to make it more attractive to potential buyers.

  • You’ll avoid the additional time and costs associated with moving boxes of unwanted items.

  • Unpacking boxes and organising storage after your house move.

Wardrobe Detox

Imagine opening your wardrobe every morning and it being full of clothes that you love.  If you struggle to choose an outfit each day or you’ve lost track of what’s in your overflowing wardrobe then I can help you with a KonMari wardrobe detox.

  • By letting go of clothes, shoes or bags that you no longer love or need you will free up some much needed space in your wardrobe. 

  • You may even rediscover some favourite items that you’ve forgotten about!

  • I’ll then help you beautifully organise the clothes that remain, making it easier to see what you own and saving you time every morning as you choose what to wear.   

  

Knowing what’s in your wardrobe and looking out for items that Spark Joy will help you to be more discerning on future shopping trips.

Following a Bereavement

When the time feels right for you I’m here to offer support and advice as you go through this process. 

  • Working at your pace, I’ll be at your side as you decide what you want to keep and I’ll help you think about how to store and organise it in your home. 

  • I can advise on moving on unwanted items to local charities or recycling centres. 

  • We'll talk through your requirements to ensure that I support you in the most appropriate way. 

Having been through this process myself I can empathise with the emotional challenges you will face in making the difficult decisions about what to retain or move on as you look through a loved ones possessions.
