Imagine a life without the clutter

  • There is less housework
  • Things have a “home” making it easy to find when you want them

Scared of living your dreams?

Scared of Living Your Dreams? Five top tips to let go of the clutter and start living your dreams

Too often we don’t live our dreams, reasons vary from lack of time, money, energy or we are scared to step outside our comfort zone; and worry what others might think or say.

On my recent trip to Europe I fulfilled so many of my life’s visions, and in some instances, I stepped well and truly outside my comfort zone. The pleasure for me was removing doubt, fear and anxiety each and every time I conquered things, that in the past had stopped me from living my dreams.

Our clutter is not always physical stuff

We have a knack of building walls around us to keep out the scary stuff, holding in the self-doubt, self-loathing and sadly we are missing out of some the really good stuff.

While traveling through the UK, France and Switzerland it was a joy to witness so many people living their dreams. There was one in particular occasion that touch my heart, it was on the day I Continue reading

Wasteful recycling

Stop Wasting Waste- Turn Clutter into Opportunities

The waste we generate is no longer considered rubbish or trash to be throw into landfill; and rightly so. A great number of nations including the USA, UK and Australia cannot keep up with volume of their waste, so what do you do; we ship to places like China and 3rd world countries to deal with our problem.

China has recently informed the world

“By the end of 2017, imports of mixed paper, scrap plastics, including PVC, PET, polyethylene and polystyrene, basically a lot of packaging material, will be banned from entering China. Industry bodies have called the measure “devastating”. Source:-Raconteur

On a recent research trip to the UK I heard lots of talk around reduce, reuse and recycling. One major supermarket; Iceland is vowing to eliminate plastic on all own-branded products and Prime Minster Theresa May pledging to eliminate all avoidable plastic waste within 25 years as part of the government’s environmental strategy.

All positive but how can we make our waste a valuable commodity? Continue reading

Testimonial

“Great wardrobe declutter notes thank you – I feel I am on a roll. Even if I only manage 10 mins a day of overall declutter. Having turned all coat hangers to face the same way, I reacquainted myself with many items of clothing, which will hopefully get an outing in coming weeks/months” Pat ~ Box Hill

Wasteful clutter

Tips to Refuse Disposable Stuff

One way to stop clutter and disposable stuff entering our lives is to refuse it access. We have been sold this idea that everything needs to be convenient, to be on hand when ever we want STUFF.

Sadly; disposable and convenience has become a huge inconvenience to our environment, putting great stress on our water ways, soils not to mention our recycling systems.

Have we taken disposal and throw away to the extreme where we treat our planet as disposable, not worthy of respect?

I truly hope we have not, make 2018 the year of refusing disposable clutter
