I’m drowning in stuff and I don’t know where to start…
Is your house being difficult? Do you have more stuff than storage? Are homeless items cluttering every horizontal surface? Is it an almighty hassle just to get out the door each morning? If you are feeling overwhelmed and the state of your home is causing you stress, it’s time to get help.
Being organised isn’t about having a linen press like worthy of a photo shoot, and it won’t come at the expense of creativity or spontaneity. Being organised is about being on top of the things that are important to you. Having clean clothes ready to wear, paying bills on time and having a comfortable home where you can relax, recharge, and enjoy the company of family and friends (and not panic when someone comes to the door unexpectedly!).
Very often milestones, happy or sad, such as the birth of a child, returning to work after starting a family, retirement or illness can cause a pleasant, well ordered home to slip into survival mode. Or perhaps you moved and never had the time to find a place for all the stuff in those boxes. Or maybe, every time you decide to tackle that spare room full of clutter you end up closing the door and go shopping instead.
Whether you’ve always been messy or the clutter has just crept up on you, I can help you jumpstart the process of getting your home under control. I offer hands on help to tame clutter and can create simple, customized systems to make your home look and function in a way that suits you.

I live in Melbourne with my teenage son and dog and have a strong belief that “done is better than perfect”. My common-sense approach to getting organised has been featured in numerous publications including House and Garden, The Age and Melbourne Weekly.
