Decluttering can be surprisingly difficult. You look at the pile of stuff you have and you know that you need to reduce it. However, when you’re working through the items you can find yourself feeling sentimental and wanting to hold on to everything. A classic phrase that is often used is “it might come in handy in the future”. If you’re having trouble in letting go, here are our top tips to help you move forward and create space for your future.

What Do I Want To Keep?

Changing the question from what you will get rid of to what you will keep, can help you to get...

If your home is bursting at the seams or you have boxes that you’ve moved from one home to another without ever unpacking, the thought of starting to declutter your home might be overwhelming. It becomes one of those jobs that are put off until next month and never gets done. Meanwhile more clutter gathers, and the cycle continues. In this month’s newsletter, we talked about the benefits of decluttering. But how can you get started if you’re feeling overwhelmed?

1. Start With Your Central Area

Ask yourself where you spend most of your time. It might be in the kitchen, at...

Success can seem like one of those things that’s always alluding you. In our last blog post we looked at how you could create a mindset for success, but it does take more than that. Many people make the mistake that it either requires action or the right mindset. The truth is both are as vital as each other. In this blog post we’ll be looking at some of the practical steps you can take that will enhance the amount of success you have. They might seem obvious but, in my experience, there’s normally at least one of these missing.

The world can sometimes be a place of organised chaos, which can make us feel out of control at times. The good news however, is that we all have the power to be in control of ourselves. We don’t have to act in a reactive way if we are proactive in deciding how we will deal with situations before they arise. On a day-to-day basis, this helps us operate with a clear mind as we have clearly laid out priorities and can let go of the things that are holding us back and replace them with the things that will help us move forward in the direction of our choosing.

Of course, with anything...

Time; It’s one thing we never seem to have enough of, especially whilst we juggle the priorities of family, work, housework, relationships and self care. Often, it’s difficult to know the best way to make use of the time we do have, flitting between racing through our to-do list at a hundred miles an hour or slowing down to just breathe – still worrying about the million and one things we should be doing. What’s for the best? Embracing the chaos or spend all of our time getting things in order?

In reality most us love the idea of being effortlessly organised, neat...

Happy New Year!

Today is a special day for numerous reasons, the start of a new year, a chance to start with a clean slate and Empower, our monthly newsletter has been published for the 100th time.

When this journey started, the newsletter was sent out quarterly but has been of benefit to our Empower community of mums and mumpreneurs for nine years, providing advice, inspiration and support helping them overcome the daily challenges mums face.

For all the advice and support we have shared over the...

My last blog covered the topic of starting to get to grips with the clutter that may have accumulated over some time in your home. The process of decluttering doesn’t need to be a stressful one but it does require some discipline.

Today I’d like to look at the bit that most of us find difficult when it comes to deciding what should stay and what should go. Letting go of the things we no longer need to keep. How do we decide what should stay and what should go? After all, we don’t generally come from a place of buying and storing things we think we don’t need. Often...

Spring has officially sprung and with Shrove Tuesday traditionally allowing for clearing out the pantry, the start of Spring seems a good time to have a general clear out. In this month’s Empower we talked about the effects clutter can have not just on the appearance of our homes but also how it can make us feel.

Sometimes when we’re moving from one task to the next and the days seem to blend into one another it’s easy for mess and clutter to accumulate quickly. Before you know it, the few pieces of mail you promised yourself you would deal with has turned into a mountain...

It’s not a full-time job staying clutter free.  You really can do it easily, with a bit of organisation and by keeping on top of it in manageable chunks. A cluttered environment suggests a cluttered mind and a cluttered life. Just like your clutter, ways to become and stay clutter free are all around you. As a time-stretched mum, it’s maintaining your declutter that is often the most difficult part.

Go Utterly Clutter-Free
To stay clutter free, you need to plan. Set aside a small amount of time for it and do a general tidy-up. If it’s not allowed to build up, clutter...

As all mums know, clutter has a way of mounting up without you noticing. We’re all partly responsible for it, with daily lives that tend to verge on the busy side. There’s never quite enough time for everything and something’s got to give. And that’s how clutter starts to build up in the first place. But it doesn’t have to be Spring to have a clean-up.

Clutter Creep
It started with a sock. Then soon other items of clothing were left strewn on your bedroom floor. Then the clutter builds and spreads. Things remain in plain sight, not put away – coats,...
