Today, we’re doing something. We’re sharing a video with you!
So often, we don’t know where to start. There’s clutter everywhere. Motivation is low. Feelings of guilty and being overwhelmed come up. Julie Morgenstern
Can you believe it’s March already? Where have the first 2 months gone? March is a wonderful time to get ready for Spring. For many of our European friends and the freezing cold they’re experiencing, this seems like months away. To help you prepare for summer and all its fun activities, now is the right time to declutter and organise your life. We’ve prepared 4 areas for you to tackle this March!
Earlier this month, a friend finally came to visit. Originally, she was to fly with 2 other friends. Getting 3 friends to book an overseas trip is not that easy. Family commitments, no time off from work, financial constraints, you know how it is. So said to herself: “Why wait?”
This week was full of unexpected events! Each day seemed to trump the events from the previous day. I certainly did not foresee any of these. At times, it was like an explosion went off and others brought the greatest joy (like that new contract we won at OLAM!). If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably experienced the full spectrum of emotions in one day, too. Yes, it was like a rollercoaster ride!
Here are our top 5 tips to remain strong when experiencing an unexpected situation:
Have you every heard of SYSTEM? It’s a wonderful term describing the benefits of being organised. SYSTEM stands for “saving you space, time, energy and money”. Those are 4 benefits you can enjoy when taking the time and yes, also energy to declutter and organise. We’ve collected 5 fantastic and yet unusual benefits of living an organised life:

“How do I find time for my own personal development?” That was a question a client asked me recently and it sparked an interesting conversation. Do you find time or do you make time?
Fed up by her company deciding on her next role, she wanted to take matters into her own hands. Her focus was her own career progression within the same organisation.

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!
Has too much stuff ever drained you? We all read about the weight of clutter on our lives and it’s true. Peter Walsh, the Australian organiser and close friend of Oprah, wrote a book on losing the clutter and shedding pounds off your body. Believe it or not, this is what I experienced over the last few weeks too.
