How long will it take?
The time it takes to declutter, sort and systemise your home totally depends on you. No one space is the same and it's impossible to give you a definite time frame. Some spaces need only a little motivation and guidance, others need a whole system and both is totally fine! Organising can be an emotional task for some people- the overall thought of sorting through your "stuff" or coming across items that you have not seen in a while that can bring back memories and emotions that can be overwhelming. These moments can be really special so I am more than happy for you to take this time.
Is this actually worth my time and money?
This is your space, your time and your money. But you need to ask yourself how many times you've said, "I don't know where this or that is", "Why can't I find anything in here?" or have felt totally overwhelmed in the space. Often, people will tackle the space to only come back and do it all over again, This is where we create effective and efficient habits that work to maximise the space and the time you spend in it.
Will you make me throw out all my belongings?
Absolutely not! If you want to hold onto everything you own, that's totally fine but you need to remember why you called in the first place. My first conversation with people generally includes "I just have heaps of stuff", "I don't know where anything is and I don't have the time to find it". While decluttering can be really scary, the goal is to not feel weighed down by your 'stuff'. Still, nothing gets thrown out without your permission.
What happens to the items I do chose to get rid of?
Depending on what you're comfortable with, items such as clothing, kids toys and linen can be donated to local charities or animal shelters where they be used by others. For paperwork from home offices etc, I have a shredder that I will bring with me. If a skip is required, this is an additional cost.
What do I need to do prior to your visit?
Provided the space is safe for us both to work in then absolutely nothing! I love chaos and mess... initially anyway.
Is there a cancellation/ reschedule policy?
Your time is precious and so is mine, so 48 hours notice is required should you need to reschedule or cancel.
