Today I went to my parents house. As some of you know I come from a family that has hoarding tendencies. I’m used to it now, so when I have to precariously balance to not trip on tools and stuff in the conservatory to get the house it barely registers I’m tiptoeing.

This week its National Organising Week (NOW), which means you’ll find I’m doing lots of blogging on here, and lots of retweeting on Twitter for the next 7 days! There will be a few tips thrown in to help you too! I’m going to try and do a different blog post each day so you get to find out a bit more about me, my business and how I declutter and organise. Today I want to go through the type of clients I have, and what happens in a session. As I’ve been handing out my busines
