Getting organised is not just for Christmas! This Ikea ad raps/taps into that awful and constant feeling of shame and anxiety so many of us have about our home spaces.
If a quick retail fix from Ikea doesn't work, then reaching out for help from a #professionalorganiser could be a more permanent solution - no matter what time of year!

Excited to hear how this Radio 4 program turns out tonight at 8pm. Great to work with Shappi Khorsandi to help get her organised and more importantly, to get her cherished photos organised. ://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0009384

Feeling very blessed. As the tumbleweeds of my posts roll on intermittently through my facebook page, it has been All Hands On Deck as the workload we are experiencing for both downsizing and photo organising has left the team flummoxed - we do no marketing, we have not launched and yet those Word Of Mouth referrals and repeat client requests from up to 5 years ago just rocks our very organised socks.
I set up The Photo Curators Ltd earlier this year to deal with all things image related in my Rightsizing process, and now that the stories of my clients are finally be told, I am being swept away on a decluttering business experience none of us could have imagined when any of us knew how to answer 'what do you want to be when you grow up?"

After 8 years of decluttering, I have learned just two things:
Stuff is stuff. Whatever.
Memories are memories. Forever.

If you are realising that curating your photos and preserving your memories are potentially more important than your next Ikea purchase of storage boxes to help delay your decision making process for another few decades, then enlisting my help will probably short circuit a lot of wasted personal and environmental energy over decades to come. And your children will love you even more 🙂

A very quiet hello and long thank you to all my very superb clients, colleagues and friends. I took the sabbatical of a lifetime earlier this year, presented at an international conference, attended others, devoured research, worked closely with my accountability team in the US, meditated daily (and mid-nightly) and took a lot of time out for reflection on all that I have done with over 5000 paid hours of 1-to-1 client hours over the past 5 years and more. Heaven only knows how many more 1000s of hours of admin that all entailed!
Meanwhile, my intense work was complemented by three gloriously teenage children who have now all flown the nest in very quick succession - the downside of bearing 3 children in 3 years 🙂
Earlier this year I was tired, very soul tired, but now I have rediscovered that secret smile that makes me tick and unearths joy in my clients. And this joy is pushing me more towards organising and preserving legacies and memories for families and future generations.
So although I retain a very high level of VIP clients both current and recurring with my rightsizing work, please don't be surprised to see how quickly I am moving towards photo organising. I set up The Photo Curators Ltd in April to cope with the demand from current clients and referrals and this is growing at a phenomenal rate.
This photo organising work is bringing a great sense of ease and contentment to my clients, their families and my own sense of fulfilment so there will be a continuing shift in my work and life priorities over the coming months. With love and thanks, Sarah x
