Declutter your shoes

Did you know that the average American woman spends USD 20,557 on shoes in a life time? It doesn’t look much better when you convert it into AED 75,506. That’s a lot of money! Just guess how many of these shoes are never worn or maybe just once. I know I’ve been guilty of that! What about you?

Continue your decluttering journey

NOW (National Organising Week) may have finished yesterday. Yet, your decluttering journey can still continue. We often get so involved in a decluttering session that we don’t think much about it. Last week, we’ve helped a client let go off paper (lots of paper!) and create more space in their filing cabinets. The joy on their face as we cleared old papers… It was priceless. And we want you too to enjoy happiness, relieve and achievement. So keep going with your decluttering journey!
