An International Affair

Cheers From Sunny London.

Yes, I did say sunny! The weather has been absolutely gorgeous since I arrived two weeks ago. Sadly, I am nearing the end of my project, but am proud to say that so much was accomplished during my time here. It is such a thrill to see my client's face light up when she comes home after work as she surveys my accomplishments. Simple things to me are life-changing to her, i.e., using add-a-shelves in the kitchen cupboards and china cabinet; grouping like items together, sourcing items at household stores and just keeping surfaces clear. While I started out with a long list of tasks, the list is getting smaller yet growing at the same time. Here are a few photos from my experience/

Now that my client has gotten into the spirit of de-cluttering and creating more space in her flat, she has so much more she wants done. It looks like I'll have to come back for Phase 2 because as I'm learning during my time here, clutter is an international affair!

London Calling

Clarity has declared war against the British -- War on clutter that is!
Word of Clarity’s success has spread internationally so I am preparing to leave for London where I will be spending two weeks working with a client to create some new space in her flat. This experience will be a little challenging since my client will be at work while I go through areas and determine what stays and goes.

I am also excited to try the UK version of Freecycle called Freegle, since I know there are some items that we will be eliminating but are still usable for someone else. I look forward to sharing my experiences with you in future postings.

Bye for now!

Spring Fling

As Easter arrives and Passover comes to a close, here are some tips to keep in mind after the holidays end.

Before putting away your dishes and decorations, take a close look at each item. Are any dishes broken or chipped? Are baskets coming apart? Upon inspection are these items worth keeping and storing until next year? Right now is a good time to replace any unusable items since most stores will have sales starting Monday.

Once you determine what to keep, it’s a good idea to have a designated area in your basement, attic or closet for holding holiday accoutrements. Within that space, designate one container per holiday so you don’t end up finding your Halloween decorations mixed up with Hanukah items.

Whichever Spring holiday you celebrate, I hope it is happy and festive.
