Stop Christmas Clutter

Rethink Christmas- Reduce, reuse, recycle and reward ourselves

Christmas can be stressful enough with more stuff cluttering our homes, when we rethink Christmas and we can reduce stress, waste and help our planet

As Eco Organiser® writes this blog, stores are spruiking it’s less than 3 weeks to Christmas, their shelves are heaving with decorations and gifts for sale.

In other words they are saying – Buy Now! Consume! Don’t miss out!

But do we really need to ramp up our consumption of ‘stuff’ just because it’s Christmas?  Let’s just take a step back from that traditional Christmas gift list and rethink. Continue reading


Stop Clutter

How to stop that vicious clutter cycle

How to stop that vicious clutter cycle

We declutter to simplify life, although how do we stop the vicious clutter cycle?  That’s stuff that slips in unnoticed, it comes in out of habit, routine, automated or our inability to say no thank you. Feeding the clutter cycle is the way we shop on impulse, for entertainment, social outlet or to fulfill a need.

What is the vicious clutter cycle?

The common pathway from purchase is Continue reading

Stuff the kids don't want

From latch key kids to Allan key kids, they don’t want your STUFF!

7 top tips on how to get over the fact that the kids do not want your stuff

The baby boomers and Gen X’ers started out as latch key kids, letting themselves into the house after school, making decisions and choices from a young age. One of the most common statements I hear at my workshops is “The kids don’t want my stuff”

Let’s be honest here, why should they want your stuff, it is not embedded in their DNA that they are going to follow the same fashions as you do. I know that may seem tough, but it is true. Personally, I love the pieces from my family, they carry stories which fill in the blanks or give me a greater appreciate for how they worked hard to make or purchase these things.

How clutter affects others

CLUTTER It’s not my, how do I let others know it is affecting me?

Clutter has a way of affecting relationship and how to let others know how it is affecting you can be a little tricky.

My No 1. Tip Cuppa Tea

Sit down with a cuppa and talk about how the clutter is affecting you.

I met first Debbie at one of my workshop where she told me

My daughter Kate left home 10 years ago, she still has boxes of stuff that are talking up space I would like to use for my craft work supplies

After attending my workshop Debbie applied No 2 R Responsible, and invited her daughter around for a cup of tea and a chat. Debbie explained how she felt about the boxes and what she would do with the space once it was cleared, she suggested they open the boxes together….. you are never going to guess the outcome Continue reading

Homemade Fast Food

How to save time and money by making your own fast food

Time and money are things we are always looking for, there are nights when we just don’t feel like cooking and it is very tempting to order in.

Yet so many options available on the end of the phone line are not overly healthy and come in so sort of packaging, which just adds more waste to the recycle bin.

Rather than spending money on fast food and adding more throw away packaging to waste to the waste stream,  why not make your own healthy fast food.

I’m too busy, so what’s in it for me?

Time is a big factor when it comes to cooking and preparing the evening meal, but have you ever factored in the time it takes to drive by and pick up the fast food, or sit in the drive through. How about the extra hours you have to work to earn the money to buy the food? There are so many benefits in preparing you own home cooked meals. I mean just ask Dr Mark Hyman and Jamie Oliver
