Decluttering and home organising services – hands on help OR advice.
I can declutter and organise any area or aspect of your home to YOUR specification. I offer either
HANDS ON HELP or if you have very limited budget or would prefer to do the hands on work yourself, investment in an expert decluttering and organising ONE TO ONE ADVICE session is highly recommended to get you started.
Below are just some of the professional organiser and decluttering tasks that I can assist with, click on each title for more information:
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.
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.
I offer hands on help and advice to help you create a spacious and attractive home ready for viewings. This process is about creating an attractive space that you will be able to keep tidy and presentable (decluttered and organised) during the viewing period. The added bonus? Packing up and unpacking after your house move will be easier – more time and energy saved.
So your beautiful new Edinburgh or East Lothian home is in place and the bunting is justifiably out!
I can help with advice on how to get the most out of your removal company and hands on help with unpacking that sea of cardboard boxes; so that you can start LIVING in your home straight away.
You can decide on the level of help you want with this, from ‘boxes to breakfast’ (getting you set up for the basics to eat/sleep/wash), to a whole house sort out. Now really is the ideal time to create the systems and zones that will keep your home decluttered and organised for the long term; a relatively small investment in this now will save you many hours and a whole lot of energy over the years.
Divorce, relationship break ups, bereavement, new baby/a growing family, downsizing, moving house, ill health and incapacity, moving into a care home or sheltered housing- 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 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.
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.
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.
It is a fact that everyone’s brain works differently. Some of us are good with directions, some are creatives and others great with numbers for example. In other words not everyone finds organising easy. I’d be happy to develop some strategies and systems that make sense to you to help make your home a more enjoyable place to be.
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.
