We all went into the lockdown with plans to use the time trapped in our homes to tackle some of the things that we’ve been putting off.
Exercise plans, home improvement, and cleaning out the house were up there on the list of tasks that we would finally get around to.
If we’re honest, despite months of free time, most of us just binge-watched Netflix and baked banana bread.
It’s time to turn things around, and while I have no idea how to motivate you to break out the yoga mat or change that lightbulb, there is a way to use that time watching Netflix as inspiration to declutter your home.
A new eight-part series Get Organised with The Home Edit, helps everyone from celebs like Reese Witherspoon and Neil Patrick Harris through to ordinary folks who don’t have walk-in closets to, as the title suggests, ‘get organised’.
I’ll let House Beautiful fill you in, before we take a look at the trailer.
Airing on Wednesday 9th September, it will see Clea and Joanna — the organisers behind the innovative home organisation company, The Home Edit— transform the lives of their clients.
Why should you watch? If you enjoyed watching Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, then you’ll probably love this. While Marie is all about decluttering and keeping items that spark joy, Clea and Joanna focus more on organising, with a little purge too.
In other words, you won’t have to wander around the house hugging things to see if they bring you joy. You just need a little push in the right direction.
Check it out:
So, about that purge…
Anyone who has embarked on a decluttering or organising mission knows that there are three types of clutter.
There’s the stuff that you can donate, the stuff that needs to be thrown out, and finally, the clutter that has sentimental value, or may be of use later, making it difficult to part with.
Instead of putting yourself through the trauma of having to make a difficult decision about whether or not to part with it, you could always ring up Stor-Age, South Africa’s leading self-storage brand, who provide secure self-storage units tailored to your needs for as long as you need them.
They’ll also provide you with a range of self-storage boxes, padlocks, bubble wrap, tape, and other self-storage packaging items to make your journey to that minimalist life that much easier.
Added bonus – sign up here and score 50% off your first month, and you can then renew on a month-by-month basis.
You’d be surprised at the weight that lifts off your shoulders when you close the door on that storage unit.
