Don’t wear those painful shoes

Don't wear those painful shoes

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?

My shoe collection has changed over the years and nowadays includes anything from relaxing flip flops, cool sneakers to comfortable flat and super high heels. Yet, what remained the same over the years: There aren’t too many!

Today, we’re helping you to make space in your shoe closet! Let go off those painful shoes!

Now that NOW is over… continue your decluttering journey

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!

The surprising benefits when you declutter

6 surprising benefits when you declutter

You’ve probably heard about Barbara Hemphill, the paper tiger lady, mentioning SYSTEM. It’s a slogan she picked up early in her organising career and it stands for “Saving you space, time, energy, money.” That’s right, that’s what professional organisers like her and us at Organised Life and Mind do. However, some folks are still sceptical about the true benefits of getting organised. So we’ve asked the ones who’ve already started their journey of decluttering and getting more organised. “What were your biggest surprising benefits, positive or negative, when you decluttered?”

Downsizing

Downsizing

Prepare to downsize

Downsizing has been a common process for seniors. Many seniors found it difficult to maintain their house and garden or struggled getting upstairs. Moving into a retirement home, often only consisting of one room, or a smaller apartment were often the answer. In recent years, more and more younger folks are also downsizing – voluntarily.

After long discussions, we’ll be downsizing this summer, too. Over the last few months, we’ve started the process and are letting go of even more items.
