Piles of Paper everywhere? Email overload? No time?

Paperwork Workshop – a review   I saw the ad and thought, why not? I could sure use the help. Being a busy work-from-home mother, CEO of the Household and Queen of the Don’t-throw-that –out-I-haven’t-read-it-yet Brigade, I knew there had to be a better way to get on top of the ever-increasing piles of paper and emails without sending little Johnny off to school minus his bookweek costume or missing the Council notice about upcoming roadworks simply because I’d misplaced […]

How to: Garage Sale

How to stage a Garage Sale First thing you absolutely need to do is ask yourself: Why do I want to hold a garage sale? If you are doing it to earn money, you’re on the wrong path. It will cost you a minimum of 15 hours and you never know how much money you will make. If you want to sustainably shift some stuff, connect to your community, sell lemonade to your neighbourhood, teach your kids about money, you […]

Filing is… about retrieving

not about putting things away! I  know, through asking my workshop participants, that paperwork is the one biggest clutter issue for people.

Just reflect on this: how many pieces of printed paper do you have that you never ever looked at again – after filing or after piling it? […]

These pictures where posted on the LessMess Facebook page over two weeks. They where meant to get people going on starting their de-cluttering journey – but also to highlight just how much stuff we actually have in our homes. Ask yourself: “Do I need it, Do I love it, Is it useful?” I know that the lists are by no means complete- too individual and too much for me to complete – but I would love some comments on what […]

In three weeks time, a colleague of mine, Sarah from Heavenly Order and I are going to do our bit for sustainability and remove items we collected over the last months. Instead of the usual charity run I do after most clients visits and much to my familie’s disapproval for invading their space with stuff, I started my own LessMess collection – to turn it into our own charity store at the Rozelle Markets on Saturday, 22.11.2014 I did of […]

Maintenance Day 4

With maintenance it’s even more important to do small projects – and stay on task. This little basket hangs magnetic on the side of my fridge. It should hold some tape to label things, a marker and a pencil. It does hold all sort of crap if I don’t sort it once in a while. The rest of the outside of the fridge really needs a good sort, too. But when I started on the little basket I had about […]

some clever ideas

one of the US based Organisers I follow on twitter and/or FaceBook put this video up on YouTube. Worth a look or is it taking organisation from practical to over the top?

I do know it’s a bit overdone by now, the New Year’s resolution thing y… But it’s never too late to improve a bad habit! This product was invented and is produced by a colleague of mine and it’s one of these oh so simple things that could start a change to the better in your (home) office. You can buy it through my website by clicking on “shop” on the left side navigation bar and some Australia Post shops […]
