Today marks the start of National Organising Week (NOW).
The annual event run by APDO – The Association of Professional Declutterers & Organisers is now in its sixth year. The initiative aims to help promote the benefits of being more organised in your space, leading to a simpler and less chaotic life.
What is National Organising Week 2020 all about?
I’ve been involved with many NOW events over the years. Talks at local libraries and Trafford Wellbeing centres. Running open advice stands at crafting retailer Hobbycraft and giving in-store talks at Hammonds Fitted Furniture. Articles where I contributed to storage provider blogs. Even better was donating a day of my time to a past client with health issues and last year to the wonderful Chelwood Foodbank Plus. I worked there with another organiser to relocate & reorganise the Manager’s office space.
With a wealth of experience built up over time working with clients in the North West of the UK, I’ve often got a tried and tested solution for the organising problems that people face in their home or office spaces.
More lockdown time at home is looming.
With a second lockdown approaching in the UK, we’ll once again be spending more time at home. We need to find ways to maintain a healthy balance between the ‘stuff’ that rules our everyday home life, our work life, our social life (remember having one of those?!) and of course the stuff that rules our mental health.
Watch for tips and ideas on my Facebook and Instagram pages during the week. Join the conversation or ask me a question or two! Keep an eye out for the daily posts on the APDO blog where there will be more ideas shared from fellow organising professionals around the UK. Pick up just one nugget of inspiration and act on that to improve your day-to-day living – fantastic!
