Transform your Home
Imagine living in a home where every room is neatly arranged and every item is in its place. A space, where you can feel more productive and calm. Have I aroused your interest? Then please keep on reading.
Maintaining an organised space is a constant challenge, especially with our busy work-life schedules. Having to eliminate excess clutter can be an overwhelming experience, at worst, virtually paralysing. Although there are lots of helpful books and online information on decluttering and organising, most people don’t have the time or motivation to tackle such a big project on their own.
You might have one of the following Reasons to Declutter your Space:
- You feel frustrated living or working in a cramped space.
- You can’t find anything to wear in your closet.
- You feel your life is getting out of control and impacting you and your family negatively.
- Your current living circumstances have changed, you … are moving house
- are downsizing
- are expecting a new family member
- have lost a loved one
- wish to work from home
Knowing which Items add Value and what’s Clutter?
Our possessions only deserve a place in our homes if they add more value and truly enrich our lives. Valuable items are the things that make us feel happy, confident or productive. All things to which that do not apply are seen as clutter. They take up unnecessary space and time.
If we understand the value of only keeping items that we like and use on a regular basis, then we will find it easier to let go of unwanted things.
My Questionnaire for eliminating Clutter
- Does the item make me feel good? If yes, keep it.
- Does it have a useful function? If yes, keep it.
- When last did I use it or have I worn it? If it’s been over 18 months, discard it.

- Do I have duplicate items? If yes, keep the nicest one and discard the rest.
- Do I want to take it into the future with me? If not, discard it.
