Decluttering and home organising services – hands on help, declutter lessons & decluttering advice.
I can declutter and organise any area or aspect of your home to YOUR specification. I offer either hands on help, a demo declutter lesson, or a consultation/advice only visit.
Below are just some of the professional organiser and decluttering tasks that I can assist with, click on each title for more information:
Toys, books and plastic toys coming out of the walls? Clothes everywhere and not a pair of socks matching? It’s a common scene in almost all family homes.
A good declutter and efficient storage all areas is the answer to keeping your home organised and tidy ongoing. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune – a couple of weekly sessions work really well to get things moving and I can set some achievable ‘homework’ tasks in between if you’d like. Just drop me a line with your wish list and priorities and we can take it from there.
Are you wearing less than half of the clothes you own? SO many of us have a mountain of clothes that are inaccessible to us, either because they are no longer useful, or stored randomly.
I love to help with this money saving task. Buy less, wear more!
We will talk about seasons, colour, sizing etc. then work together to categorise items so that you can SEE what you have. I can take any unwanted items to charity then we work together on organised and efficient storage. I can provide space saving hangers to streamline the process if you’d like. THE RESULT: a beautifully organised wardrobe system that can be maintained easily in the long term.
Change and transitions in life are inevitable for us all. Divorce, relationship break ups, bereavement, new baby/a growing family, downsizing, moving house, ill health and incapacity – the list is endless. The circle of life can certainly bring some challenging transitions which, more often than not bring major reorganisation with regards your living arrangements. Whatever your situation I can help ease the process. A word on some specific scenarios:
New baby/a growing family/elderly parent moving into your family home.
Is your home already bursting at the seams with people and stuff? For many people it seems like a bigger house is the only option but there may be another way. Perhaps it’s possible to rearrange use of rooms/space to create an additional nursery or bedroom. Call on me for a one to one advice session and we can see what’s possible.
Home organising after bereavement.
An already deeply upsetting time also brings the need to organise – both paperwork for probate and the home generally. I have helped many clients in this situation and would be happy to offer some practical support with getting the administrative part in order and to help ease the burden of going through other items when you feel ready. I totally understand that emotions may be to the forefront of these sessions and you are assured of empathy and compassion in help with this daunting task.
If you find yourself on the brink of a mental health meltdown, you are not alone! Over the last months the challenges of working from home, isolation and home schooling to name but a few, have created a lot of discord in many homes.
It is perfectly understandable that you may feel out of sorts and have fallen out of love with your home. I can help to create space and order again. Please don’t feel embarassed or overwhelmed; an investment in restoring order at home can be life changing. Don’t hesitate to drop me a line or pick up the phone and we can set up a consultation. Depending on current covid restrictions we can discuss your situation and whether logistics are feasible for a safe session. Nothing to lose by getting in touch for a chat.
It is a fact that busy professionals often don’t have the time or energy to keep on top of organisation in the home. No need to feel guilty about it; just give me a call for a quick chat about your goals and delegate the task of getting things back on track to me.
Administration, household bills & utilities and paperwork generally – this can be a major headache for a lot of people and I can help. Is your mail and paperwork mounting up and you don’t know how to take control of it? Is your home office just not working for you?
With several years of corporate Office Management experience, I can assist with working through the backlog and devise a new system to match your needs and logic – you will feel the stress disappear knowing that you have a system in place to keep the admin in check ongoing.
Moving house can be an exhausting and hugely stressful time. It is a well acknowledged fact that a clutter free home with defined zones will sell faster and for more money and without a doubt any money spent on the task will easily be recouped in the increased sale price. Selling house services come in three stages: Declutter. Home staging. Unpack & create systems in new home. You can engage with any or all services as you prefer. For more information on home staging & unpacking services click here.
If you would prefer to do your own decluttering but don’t know where to start, this is for you.
Perhaps you have already tried to declutter your home without success? Feel like you’re going round in circles and achieving very little? An efficient method and breaking down tasks into manageable parts is crucial for success.
I offer two options to assist with this:
EITHER a one hour consultation ADVICE visit – the purpose of this session is to help you work out where to begin and to offer suggestions/tips and tailored advice to ensure your decluttering success. Together we will take a look around your home and discuss your aims. Please don’t worry about me seeing ‘the mess’- here to help, not judge. I will then suggest the areas/categories I think it best for you to start on, in your own time. After our meeting I will follow up with an e mail summary document of the suggested starter tasks and include decluttering method and tips summary to keep you on track. (Available in some EH postcodes).
OR in a three hour declutter LESSON, a hands on demo will show you the tried and tested method used at The Help Edinburgh over the last 10 years. Working on an agreed area/category in your home, this starter session will equip you with an efficient method for best success in your own declutter sessions ongoing.
If the assistance you need is not on the list please don’t hesitate to get in touch to see if I can help.
You may of course have questions. Some of them may be answered in ‘frequently asked questions’ FAQ page. Otherwise please don’t hesitate to contact me and I’ll be happy to answer them.
