Portrait: Susanne Thiebe, Less Mess, Sydney, Declutter, Organise

My name is Susanne and I created LessMess offering decluttering, organising and education service in 2006.

I was born in Germany, have an Engineering degree in Interior Architecture and am an award-winning gardener that likes weeding and pruning.

For the last 25 years, I have been living in Sydney’s inner west, where fitting into a small house is a financial necessity – sharing the house with my husband, three (male) teenagers, three chooks, a (female) cat, lots of friends and (overseas) visitors.

I am an experienced workshop facilitator and public speaker. Over the years, I have been reaching a wide audience with my sustainable living workshops.

In June 2017 and again in 2018, I spoke at the world’s largest conference on happiness and wellbeing sharing my ideas about a simpler live with over 1500 delegates. You can watch the video here.

I am a founding board member of The Institute of Professional Organisers (IOPO)  everyone in our team follows their Code of Conduct.


Confidentiality is key

Celebrating: 15 years in business

15 Years ago, on the 10th of August 2006, I worked with my very first client. A couple of weeks earlier I had joined my Industry Association, brainstormed a business name and had my first version of this website go live. All in between caring for my kids, two in primary school one just started daycare.
Time flays, the two oldestare at Uni , the youngest in high school.

I have worked with over 700 individual clients and families, turned a part time business into a full time one and now have a team of Organising Assistants and Handyman that can help out if a job requires.

I have been featured in the media, radio and on TV as an expert commentator.

7 years ago, I started running public workshops and can add over 7500 participants to that list.
