As we’re preparing for the New Year, we’re excited to present our free 2018 calendar to you!
Find what you’re looking for in your wardrobe
Are your morning hours as precious to you as they are to me? One of the worse time vampires is the additional stress caused by looking at your wardrobe – with nothing to wear in sight! Find out how organising your wardrobe helps you start your day right!
We encourage the nation to get organised during NOW!
APDO Association of Professional Declutterers & Organisers is running the 4th annual NOW National Organising Week this Autumn. Through social media, blogs and partnerships, the association will motivate and inspire people just like you to organise their homes and workplaces. We are taking part in the campaign and bring it to this region!
What’s all in your handbag?
Is your husband or partner rolling his eyes whenever he sees your handbag? Are you complaining about how heavy it is? Did you know that the average handbag weighs 6.27 pounds? That’s just the handbag. If you’re anything like me, you may also carry a laptop bag, your gym bag and a bag with your lunch. Wow! That’s a massive weight to carry every day! I’d say: It’s time to clear out your handbag!
Get ready! This Saturday, 11 March, is “Clear Your Clutter” Day. It’s your day to get rid of some of the stuff you no longer want or need. Whether you take this day and start with a shelf, focus on a room or continue on your decluttering journey, it doesn’t matter. What’s important is that you start.
The weather may not show it but we’re approaching Spring fast. 20 March is the first day of Spring and I can’t wait for it! This Spring will be the birth of a new period and my wardrobe will some space for it. When was the last time you went through your closet? Make a start this weekend!
The ultimate Spring challenge
Ash Wednesday (1 March) is the beginning of lent and Christians are giving up something. Lent lasts for 40 days until Maundy Thursday (the Thursday before Easter) and is generally seen as a period reflection, self-examination but also improvement. Some Christians are thus giving up an indulgence like chocolate, while others give up a bad habit like smoking. Why not use lent 2017 to participate 40 bags in 40 days, regardless of your religious beliefs?
Make a start to create your dream home
Talking to a colleague this afternoon, we both wished we were at home, wrapped up in a blanket with a hot drink, reading a book. The weather is just not inviting us to spend more time outside. So why not make use of these cooler temperatures (yes, 20 C/68 F are cool) and organise your home?
Get on a high note decluttering
It’s the second week of 2017 and you know what that means. Exactly, most people are still on their high to make their resolutions stick this time! “This is the year I’ll change – no more excuses!” This is one of my clients who’s preparing for his first garage sale already!
For him, a garage sale is a deadline. A deadline to start the letting go of all the stuff he doesn’t use or need. But it’s also an opportunity, well, actually 4 opportunities:
Do you know your colours?
Many women and more and more men are having a colour consultation done. Working with a Colour Me Beautiful consultant like me, they’re finding out which colours suit their individuality and bring out the sparkles in their eyes. Do you know which colours are your colours?
