Pick Your Decluttering Helpers Carefully

Getting friends and family to help with your decluttering is a great idea.  It will save you time and sanity if you get the right people.  If you get the wrong people it will leave you feeling drained and lousy.

What you need is a pack of happy assistants who are there to help you and be guided by what you want.  You get to be the director.

Exposing our clutter can make us feel vulnerable.  When I started working with people to help them shift their clutter this time round I realised that I had forgetten about this. I noticed that it took people a while to show me the full extent of their clutter.  Even though I’ve seen it all before and I never judge but they weren’t to  know that!

Beware …

  • The people who want you to get rid of things before you are ready
  • The people who disapprove of your clutter and the way you live your life
  • The people who don’t listen to how you want the day to go
  • The impatient and the over incredulous
Call in ….
  • Those who bring food and drinks
  • Those who are happy to take orders – yours!
  • Those you trust with your intimate feelings
  • Those who embrace all the beauty and eccentricity of you
  • The practical and the humorous
This is your wishlist.  Others may be well meaning but its important for you to feel safe and in control.  You want your helpers to be a help, not a hindrance.
