Organising, decluttering and Minimalising

Recently, professional organisers are in the news. Who are they – In short, they help clients to organise and decluttering. Some clients paid them for their service and advices. Some have no idea what to do about the mess and want to be organise! Hence, they decided to engage an expert!

I wrote about Decluttering 101 about 2 years ago. It is not 101 tips but it is a good 23 pointers to get you started.

I am not against getting professional advice or help. But most of the stuffs are pretty much common senses. Throw what you don’t need or never use for a long time. Organise the rest by using plastic containers etc. Keep things to a minimum. And don’t buy things you don’t need. Most people have a problem (Myself included) because they are attached to their belonging… and likes to shop for things.

Professional organiser/expert are good for the first use. But they are not to help everytime you have a mess. It’s all about habits. Those professional organsier/expert mainly (?) gives tips on keeping your stuffs organise. BUT I don’t think they actually provide the root cause of the problem. In the first place, if you don’t have so much stuffs, you wouldn’t have the mess to deal with. So at the same time, CHANGE your habits! For e.g. do not go to the malls for window shopping as you know you would end up buying 1 or 2 things. Find other activities to do – walk at the park!

So organising and decluttering should conclude with a minimalising!
