  I have provided a list before of items that should be disposed off when decluttering. However, that list was published a few years ago and items that we used on a daily basis have changed substantially again in 2 years. To reflect the changes in items in our lives, I have created 120 Items to Declutter this year. A lot of items in this list such as manuals, magazines, newspapers and movies can be obtained online and viewed through your tablets, Apple TV, computers or phones. We no longer need the physical item in our home. There are also a Read More

Stuffocation

  Do you suffer from Stuffocation? You might be asking what is Stuffocation. According to James Wallman who create the term, “Stuffocation is that feeling you get when you have to fight through piles of stuff you don’t use to find the thing you need, or when someone gives you something and your gut reaction isn’t “thank you,” but “what on earth makes you think I could possibly want or need that?” Instead of thinking of more stuff in positive terms, like we used to, we now think more means more hassle, more to manage, and more to think about.  Read More

Stop Being Tracked From Your Smartphone

I was alerted to this by a follower recently and wanted to share it with you all. There is a way for anyone, whether an individual or company, to track your personal activities including where you live and work. There is a setting called “frequent locations”  on your smartphone which picks up where you go often. This means someone could decipher where you live and work. Very Worrying. This video from NBC Today explains the concerns of having the location settings on but also how to switch it off so that you are not tracked by anyone. If you have an Read More

Since I started Decluttr Me, I have discovered who are the good friends and acquaintances in my life and who I should remove real and digital life. I recall removing one Read More

How often do you have a thought, but then forget it a minute later. Have you ever been walking to a meeting or in the mall, and remember you had to instruct your Personal Assistant to book your flight, or you had to buy something from the supermarket; then boom it has disappeared…again. Recall how many times you think of something and then forget it in a day, and how much time you waste trying to remember that item that you have just forgotten. Wouldn’t it be better to not lose that thought? I always advise clients to write their thoughts on paper or Read More
