How to Reduce your Wardrobe with Cost per Wear

    You see these boots? They cost me $900 on sale (yep on sale. I hope my mum is not reading this!). They are a beautiful pair of boots, but the middle section of my foot starts aching after wearing them for 5 minutes. It is so bad that I have worn these boots 3 times since I purchased them 5 years ago.  This is what you call a complete waste of money. How did I come to that conclusion? By using this handy formula: (Wears per Month) x (Number of Months worn if it is a Seasonal Item) x Read More

Why Shopping Whilst DeCluttering is Never a Good Idea

  I recently helped a lovely client to declutter her clothes and accessories which she had bought over a few years. Whilst we were still in the declutter process, a parcel arrived… The parcel was from Net-a-Porter and contained beautiful new clothes to add to the wardrobe.   She then confessed she had been shopping online before I had arrived and ordered more stuff to be delivered later in the week. A few minutes later, I was told I had been called in to help declutter so she could buy new stuff!! Imagine my face. By using a professional organizer Read More

It seems excessive to me, and it must be affecting them, as I am in their house helping them Read More

    Many of my clients declutter clothes that have hardly been worn or still have the tags on them. They fashion items range from high street to designer items and are definitely not ready to be thrown away. Due to the hassle of selling on the second hand market, I tend to suggest the clients donate their items to Dar Al Ber’s Women and Children’s Society, the majority of the time. When the clothes are high value and in good condition, it seems a shame to not sell the item and get some money back. However, the second-hand market here is very Read More
