HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

Results vary depending on your ability to make decisions. If you can make decisions easily on what your ideal is for each area, and what to purge, the process will move quickly and smoothly. We work at your pace; if you take longer to make decisions you won’t be pressured into thinking faster and making poor decisions. We will work alongside you to achieve the best possible outcome for your home.

The average home takes at least 4-6 sessions to gain control over the clutter.

When is the best time to declutter? 

A good declutter is useful at any stage of life but being prepared for a change in circumstances ensures a more relaxing lifestyle. If you’re moving house, about to have a baby or getting a new job; declutter before the change occurs. You may be up to your eyeballs in preparations and think it will be easier to wait until after the fact, but it’s not. Putting off the declutter adds more to your mental ‘To Do’ list and places more stress upon your brain and ultimately your body. invest the time in a declutter before the change so you can enjoy your new home, baby or job instead of feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. Getting your older relatives, or unwell loved ones, prepared for downsizing is also very important as the emotions felt when downsizing or death occurs can become overwhelming. If you’re struggling to get organised in preparation for a change in circumstance, contact us to see how we can help.
