I’ve had a few conversations recently about Marie Kondo and her book The Life-changing Magic of Tidying
About Marie Kondo
Her basic approach is to work intensively with people to do a single one-off declutter of their homes. This approach is so intensive that it is – you guessed it- life changing! She claims that people then maintain their homes clutter-free, having had their attitude to their ‘stuff’ radically transformed.
Most of my clients initially book single sessions with me. These are at least 3 hours, but usually a day, and we achieve some great results in single rooms. Some clients then book me regularly to gradually work through their house over a longer period. This helps spread the cost and I think it also allows for a gradual and gentle transition in how you view your ‘stuff’.
But I’d love to experiment with working more intensively to see if ‘fast and furious’ can be as effective. My guess is that this would suit certain people better than the slower approach- the results would certainly be more dramatic.
My proposal to you
If you’ve had enough of the way you’re living and are ready to live in an uncluttered home why not work with me for 2 days a week over a period of at least three weeks. I would charge a discounted rate of £450 per week for the first four weeks. (This is discounted from my usual cost of £500).
Do call me if you would like to have a free home consultation to find out more…
