Sometimes you need a little “Pinspiration”

Starting on your organising journey can be fun and exciting but if you are doing it on your own, it can be downright boring – let’s just be honest. “Do I have to?”, you may ask yourself. “Can’t you just give me a magic wand?”, you may cry.

Have Clutter? It’s partly not your fault!

It’s school holidays and I can bet that most of us have been spending more time on the kids than on our houses, offices, garages and/or other spaces…and that is not a bad thing! People before things!

Organised: Play Room, Craft Room and Office

Keri had a multi-functional room which she had tried to organise and therefore was not a huge mountain of disorganisation but was rather a room that was not that functioning well.

Organised: Moving Homes

Gizelle is moving homes and needed to organise a few spaces, declutter and decide what to keep and what to give/throw away. This is always a difficult process but it was even more difficult because Gizelle was away at the time that the organisation needed to take place.

Organised: Toddler’s Room

When Carole sent me a message telling me about her toddler’s room she included words like “It’s bad”, “maybe you wanna sit before looking!” and “feel free to say no”.
