Declutter Challenge 2: Set Aside Time and Ask for Support

Top Tip in Declutter Challenge 2 "Make a plan that is personal to you. There's never a one-size-fits-all cookie cutter to this approach and it's based on many factors including how big your home is, what is your motivation, your health, people around you, all those sort of things. Also, the number of things that you have to redistribute so it all takes time time. Some properties can get done faster than others. What I need you to do is set an end date. You may plan to be packed up and done by your 65th birthday. So set an end date, what works for you and your loved ones too. But really, most importantly... for you."With over a decade of experience as a Property Makeover and Change Specialist, Belinda has spent many years helping transform homes and lives.
