I am often asked to show before and after pictures of work I have done in clients homes. Occasionally I show them on my Facebook page (with clients permission of course) but mostly I find their beautiful messages say more than a picture could.
So here is a recent one that I’d like to share
I just wanted to thank you again for all your help. We took on an impossible task – to get our very cluttered home ready for market in 11 days, half packed and ready to move house, with 3 kids under 4 years old AND to NOT take any junk with us to our new home. An impossible and overwhelming goal!
Having you work alongside me enabled me up make decisions so much more quickly with much much less anxiety. You struck the perfect balance of supporting but challenging when needed, fun, easygoing and encouraging. For a task that felt impossible I was amazed how quickly we got through it. It really helped to book several sessions upfront with clear goals for each session & homework to get done between each meeting.
While sorting, I found old to do lists from over the last 5 years with lists of things I wanted to cull and declutter that were never completed. Amazingly, I decluttered more on a year working with you than I had in all my efforts of 5 years leading up to then! seeing carloads going to charity was really freeing and satisfying. What’s more, it’s made me realize how much more simply we can live and we really haven’t missed those items at all!
Looking back, I think I had questioned whether the sessions would work out to be a good investment. It seems madness to spend money on getting rid of “stuff”. On the other side of the process now the answer to that is obvious. With your help to pack and declutter, within the space of 11 days our house looked like a show home. We sold for hundreds of thousands more than we expected to! That would not have happened without decluttering with your help. It is incredibly satisfying to know that the boxes I’ve packed and stored for our new house aren’t just junk thrown in in haste to sell our house quickly but carefully considered and justified items. I love that our house won’t be have excess and junk in it – what a great way to start our new lives.
I’m so excited to move to our brand new house,open those clutter free boxes and find just the right place for each item, each in their logical orderly place. Hoping you’ll be there to help me set up new processes and systems to keep our new life orderly and clutter free.
Thank you for making the impossible possible! It won’t be forgotten.
