Free Me – the new way to get rid of your decluttered stuff

decluttr

    Often whilst working with clients, especially in bedrooms, we find that post decluttering and organizing there are pieces of unwanted, empty furniture in the room. There are also bags of great quality clothes, toys and kitchen utensils.  These items need to leave the house, but what is the best way to get rid of them? I have previously advised on ways to sell your stuff and donate it to charities and not-for-profits in the UAE (see my post here). With the clothes, toys, etc, I often donate them to local charities, but it is a little more difficult Read More

Decluttering and Organizing your Expat Move

decluttr

    I have moved back and forth from the UK three times in my life. Once whilst a teenager to Kenya (and back in a year – it was not for us) and twice to Dubai. Being organized and decluttered I was able to travel with only a few boxes from each country (yep I have always been this organized, even as a teenager), but understandably for many people moving countries is an incredibly stressful time, and there will be much more stuff to ship to the next destination. I have helped quite a few clients in the last few Read More

Why Shopping Whilst DeCluttering is Never a Good Idea

decluttr

  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

Being Organized Post Networking

decluttr

  I attend a lot of networking events to: a) meet new people, b) meet old friends and acquaintances, c) talk about business, d) learn something that will help my business (possibly), and/or e) be inspired by the speakers. Being in the village of Dubai, you get to meet the same people, but there are always new people to meet and talk to about my business. I am not an advocate of forcing my business card at people I meet, but if people ask for my details or say they need to book me for my decluttering and organizing services, I always give them Read More

Why Hiring a Professional Organizer Will Pay for Itself

decluttr

  If you had a broken water tank, you would hire a plumber right? Or you lost the internet you would call the telecomms company to fix it. So if you are buried in clutter and can’t get organised, wouldn’t you call a professional organizer to help you? There is no need to feel shame for asking for help with your clutter as there is no shame in asking for help for your internet service to be fixed. Hiring a Professional Organizer is often considered a luxury, but if you want to clear the stress that clutter is causing you, Read More

Personal Grooming: Why It Is Important For Your Staff and Brand

decluttr

Hospitality is a major industry in this region with residents and tourists alike visiting restaurants, hotels and entertainments venues on a daily basis (and sometimes more than once a day).  Hospitality is such a professional service, where each and every member of the team must maintain high standards of grooming and hygiene at all times. Unfortunately, whether it is due to lack of training, general education or common sense, these standards do not seem to be upheld in a high number of establishments. I often get asked, what is grooming? It is the process of making yourself neat and attractive.  Or it Read More
