As you know, I am an accredited member of APDO (Association of Professional Declutterers & Organisers). Over the past 12 years they have championed the role of Professional Organisers and helped thousands of people in the UK to clear their clutter, and I am proud to let you know I’m now joining the team responsible for training Professional Organisers.
APDO is running a third annual National Organising Week (NOW) from 7-13th November 2016 asking: why delay letting go of those possessions which are cluttering your home and impacting on your precious living space?
During National Organising Week I’m running a Decluttering Workshop for just 10 people in South East London. If you want to kick-start your decluttering and be ready for Christmas this is perfect for you, and the workshop costs around the price of a single hour session with Free Your Space. (It’s also a great pressie option for a friend/ family member which won’t create clutter!)
Just click here if you would like to book a ticket.
I’m also very excited to be volunteering my services on the 8th Nov for an amazing organisation called Dress for Success. They work with women who experience many forms of disadvantage and are about to attend an interview. They provide professional clothing, interview training and a support network to ultimately help the women believe in their own ability to succeed. One in two of the women they help gets the job. There will be at least 5 other APDO members working with me on the day (suggested collective noun- a‘Tidy of Professional Organisers’?!)
When decluttering please do bear this charity in mind if your clothes/ accessories are suitable for interviews.
National Organising Week is a great opportunity for you to stop and think about the mental and physical clutter you are living with. It’s a chance to consider how you are using your precious time and APDO hopes to inspire the UK to take action to tackle things – NOW.
