Giving Things Away Makes Room for the New

decluttr

  This week, we have a guest blog from the wonderful Fiona Campbell. I met Fiona recently at a networking event and she discussed how she had downsized several times over the years and her experience of letting go of her things. Her experience was so wonderful and inspiring that I asked her to share it with you. So here is Fiona’s decluttering and downsizing story: In 2010 I was given 6 weeks’ notice for my husband and I to leave the beautiful Georgian Farmhouse we had called home for the past 15 years.

  I recently helped a lovely client to declutter her clothes and accessories which she had bought over a few years.

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

I often get asked, what is grooming? It is the process of making yourself neat and attractive.  Or it Read More
