At any stage in your pre and post retirement journey, managing personal possessions can be an obstacle to the life you both want and need. 

Keep that concept in mind … the life you want and need. 

You can be paralysed by the sheer volume of items that you have to make decisions about, unsure where to start decluttering.

You can be grieving, angry and resentful of the emotional burden. Held back by the responsibility of objects imbued with meaning and personal history. Yours, your children’s and of people long gone.

You suddenly find yourself the custodian of items that drag you down because they are not letting you live the life you need and want. A life made of smaller spaces that require less care and maintenance.

At the end of the day they’re all just objects. They don’t have a mind of their own.

 No piece of china will protest if a hole is drilled in the bottom so it can be repurposed as a container for succulents. Or smashed to bits by a gleeful mosaic artist to create a decorative piece. No pair of secateurs will sing with joy when a new owner uses it to prune roses. No wooden chair will get the sulks because someone sands it back to paint it bright yellow.

They can be donated, sold or recycled and repurposed.

As a Professional Organiser I can find a new home or purpose for most things in your home. Or a point of responsible recycling and disposal. You can tell the story of your items as you let them go or decide what comes with you into that new life. Help you plan and action those next steps. We are there to support you, listen to all those memories, and then efficiently move those redundant items out of your life.

    May I simply say what a comfort to find somebody who truly understands what they’re discussing on the web. You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people really need to read this and understand this side of the story.

    It’s surprising you’re not more popular because you definitely possess the gift.

      Thank you for these kind words. I reflect a lot on the way my clients react to what they have to face: guilt about doing the “right” thing is way up there. So glad I communicated that clearly to you.
