~ Re-purposing spaces ~⁣
⁣
Recently I worked with a lovely family in Lyall Bay, who needed to make a bit more space for the kids.⁣
⁣
The family decided to re-purpose their garage space. They turned one side of the garage into a new hangout area for the kids. I then organised the other half of the garage - removed a car-load of unwanted items and now the camping gear and other garage items are easily accessible.⁣
⁣
Win for the kids, win for the parents and win for the charities that received the good-quality donated items.⁣
⁣
Working with a Professional Organiser doesn't mean you have to purchase items to make a space function the way you want it to. Sometimes sharing the load, a fresh perspective and some friendly guidance is all that's needed to help life run a little more smoothly.⁣
⁣
I've added the Before and After photos to my 'Home' Highlights.

~ Feel the difference ~⁣
⁣
When life feels a little bit uncertain, looking inwardly at the systems and organisation in your own home can bring a sense of peace and control. ~ I read this over at @simplifymyhome yesterday, and the words resonated with me.
⁣
I believe there is a direct link between tidy and organised spaces and your emotional wellbeing. Creating spaces that you love to live in can be therapeutic. ⁣
⁣
How do the spaces in your home make you feel?

🔥 Pro-tip: vertical height 🔥 ⁣
.⁣
So often when I see clients’ spaces that cause them despair, I can instantly see one small tweak that will turn their clutter situation around completely. Tell more more, I hear you say.... 🤨⁣
.⁣
It’s a lack of appropriate storage! I would bet my DVD of The Princess Bride (it’s priceless, y’all!) that without shelving, or boxes, or some kind of structure, even the tidiest person in the world would struggle to maintain order. ⁣
.⁣
🚗 In your garage, add freestanding shelves along a wall and marvel at how you suddenly have enough space to park your car.⁣
🚪Install an over-door rack in your bedroom and hey presto 💫 here’s a handy place for your handbags or necklaces. ⁣
🧥Add a coat rack by the front door and delight at how much better your trench coat looks hung up than in a pile on the floor. ⁣
.⁣
Now. Go eyeball some spaces in your home that are begging for vertical height hacks.... messy little piles on the floor are a dead giveaway! ⁣
.⁣
Share your messy little piles below and sing out if you need a hand - vertical height is one of my FAVOURITE topics 🙌🏽 😂 🤪⁣

The hairs on the back of my neck stand up when someone says “cupboard of doom” 😍🥳🤩 .
3 hours is all it took to whip this beauty into shape, with minimal input from my gorgeous client who was happily doing other work in the home while I dealt to this overloaded space. .
I took away a full van load of unwanted items that the op shop welcomed with open arms, and left suggestions on where to sell some of the items of *monetary* value that were lurking in the cupboard 🤑😎

Do you have a cupboard of doom that makes the hairs on your neck stand up for all the wrong reasons? Let’s talk - we can both make each other’s day! ☎️

Are you a collector? Do you go through phases where you become obsessed with a new “thing” and then go about buying all.the.kit to support that new passion? Me too 🙋🏾‍♀️ .
My latest obsession is crystals. There is a beautiful store in Ponsonby here in Auckland called @thechannelling and I love going there and choosing some special crystals to add to my collection (or as Otis calls them, rocks 🤦🏾‍♀️). .
Why am I telling you about my crystals? Because I want you to have confidence that hanging around in these here parts is not about getting rid of the things you love or that make you who you are, and it’s not about striving for minimalism (that’s not my jam) 🙅🏾‍♀️
.
If you want to read more about my thoughts on collections (and the reasons we hang onto some things) you’ll find the link to my blog in my bio 👆🏼
.
Now tell me - are you a collector? Tell me about it in the comments - I’d love to hear from you so we can compare notes about our amazing, UNIQUE, collections ❤️ .

~ Does this scenario sound familiar? ~⁣
⁣
Parent ~ "Your room is a mess, you need to clean it up."⁣
Child ~ "It's fine how it is, I like it this way" or "I'll clean it up if you stop nagging" or "Don't come in here if you don't like it."⁣
⁣
However the conversation goes, the frustration between parent and child over the child's bedroom is a common theme.⁣
⁣
Recently, a lovely client of mine turned the all familiar conversation on its head - "Darling, there's no need to do anything in your room - a professional organiser is coming to help you sort it!"⁣
⁣
A week later I arrived for the organising session, only to discover the darling daughter had already spent hours clearing and sorting her room. The only tasks left to do was to organise her desk and sort through some books for donating.⁣
⁣
*Just for the record, I'm not that scary - but I guess the daughter wasn't to know that 😂*⁣
⁣
Sometimes side-stepping the arguments and frustrations by bringing in outside help, can make you wonder why you didn't do it sooner...

Ugh, are you sick to death of looking for stuff? Nothing more stressful than looking for something when you NEED it and are on a deadline... even if that thing is your book, and the deadline is the 15 minutes you have kid-free to enjoy a few pages in peace and quiet ⏰
.
If you've lost a few needles (things!) in your haystack (home!) lately, maybe its time you called in a professional to get some help tracking things down and setting you up so they don't get lost again. I love helping families to establish simple systems to help them keep on top of their stuff long after I have vamoosed 🏃🏽‍♀️
.
It all starts with a simple phone call. Take the first step and book the call... it's 15 minutes only, it's free of charge AND of obligation. You have nothing to lose 😇

Busy families = busy pantries! One of the things I love about my job is getting it right for my clients. And everyone is different. We are all unique and what works for Karen down the street probably won't work for Sharon on the corner 👯
.
While I follow general principles that I've gleaned over countless hours of research and on-the-job experience, I treat every client's needs as individual. I put in my best attempt for systems, and then my clients LIVE with those systems. And if they need tweaking after a trial period, in I go and get freaky-deaky with the tweaky-tweaky 💫
. 
This gorgeous family lived with their pantry for a couple of weeks and needed a couple of small changes to suit their usage. And that's cool. In fact it's awesome, because this isn't about me - it's about THEM 🤨
✅ It's about giving THEM a pantry in which everyone can find their stuff. ✅ It's about giving THEM a pantry that is easy to keep tidy. ✅ And it's about giving THEM a pantry that delights them every time they open it. .
So that's what I did. I went back, tweaked according to their feedback and gave them the pantry they needed 👏🏽and 👏🏽 deserved 👏🏽 .
If you're looking for a collaborative approach to organising your spaces, book a Clutter-Busting Strategy Session today. It's free, it's fun and I promise I'll do more listening than talking so we can find make a plan of attack. You will find a time that suits you via the link in my bio ☎️

😥😴😫Who can relate? .
As women, we have so many decisions on our plates. It can feel like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. We are fiercely independent from being raised with the idea that "girls can do anything" and somewhere along the way, society got muddled and it became "girls should do EVERYthing". You feel me? 🤦‍♀️
. 
Sometimes I get so tired of being an adult. Research, decisions, thinking, decisions, soul searching... DECISIONS. Someone just take the wheel for a day and do all of that stuff for me 🤯
.
Well, when it comes to clutter and organisation, I CAN do the thinking and decision-making for you. If you're a fiercely independent DIY dynamo but you CBF doing the research and planning required to finally (for example) organise the pantry, clear out the kids toys and tidy the spare room for the in-laws can come to stay - then the Virtual Declutter service is just what you need 🙌
.
You get my genius - which is:
✅making spaces work like well-oiled machines,
✅an encyclopaedic knowledge of organisational products from all over the world, and
✅my passion for this organising game
 And then you get to be the Wonder Woman that pulls it all together in your home 👸

Ah, Monday, how I love thee. That's actually true for me - Mondays have never been my enemy. Tuesdays on the other hand….. Not my favourite day of the week 🙅‍♀️
.
ANYWAY…. Here's my kid on a recent scooter outing. He just stopped, plonked himself down in the path and took a moment. He felt the stones beneath his fingers, he smiled as the wind blew, and he just did what felt right in THAT moment. How often do we allow ourselves to do that as adults? When was the last time you were just still, and sat with yourself, and noticed the things around you in a peaceful and judgement-free way? 🌱
.
It's hard right? Because it somehow feels naughty to sit and be still. It feels lazy to read a goddamn book. And it brings on the mum-guilt something chronic if we put ourselves before our kids even though we know in our hearts that our oxygen masks MUST go on first. This is where delegation and sharing the load can become our superpower. By outsourcing time consuming tasks (cleaning, gardening, ironing and ahem - decluttering), you're freeing up time to spend on what's important, without the guilt 🙆‍♀️
.
Do you outsource like a pro, or are you ready to start? The first step is booking a call with me so we can chat about your organisational or decluttering projects. I CAN'T BLOODY WAIT to take something off your hands so you can stop, sit and be still for a few hours. (Or go for a run, if that's more your style!) 🏃‍♀️

Funny how some stuff just works out…. This cool photo by Clark Tibbs featured a sign that originally said "Do something great". When trying to crop it to fit Instagram's requirements, the only way I could make it fit was to lose the "great" from the sign. And that is actually perfect 👌🏽
.
Because often we are so keen to do something perfectly, or to do something GREAT, that we waste our most precious of all resources - time. So that's my urgent plea for you this weekend... bugger doing something great, just DO SOMETHING. And if you're paralysed by indecision about dealing with your clutter, why not book a chat with me to see what calling in some reinforcements and would look like? 🤔

When trying to crop it to fit Instagram's requirements, the only way I could make it fit was to lose the "great" from the sign. And that is actually perfect 👌🏽 . Because often we are so keen to do something perfectly, or to do something GREAT, that we waste our most precious of all resources - time. So that's my urgent plea for you this weekend... bugger doing something great, just DO SOMETHING. And if you're paralysed by indecision about dealing with your clutter, why not book a chat with me to see what calling in some reinforcements and would look like? 🤔 . Book your free 15 minute call via the link in my profile - what do you have to lose? ☎️ . . . #theshipshapeshoppe #professionalorganiser #professionalorganiserauckland #professionalorganisernz #declutter #decluttering #declutteringauckland #declutteringnz #organisinganddecluttering #organiser #organiserauckland #organisernz #efficiencyexpert #efficiencyexpertauckland #efficiencyexpertnz #rebekahholmes #businessefficiency #officeefficiency #homeefficiency #holisticorganisation #organiserservice #professionalorganiserservice #habitsofhighlyorganisedpeople #organisedpeople #declutteringtips #thedecluttercrew #sheownsitnz - 29 days ago

A reminder for anyone who is in the mood for a little decluttering action this weekend. Channel your inner Elsa and "Let it gooooooo" - you can do it! ❄️
.
And if you struggle to (or can't) let it go - you know who to call! Book a free clutter-busting-strategy-session (AKA a 15 minute phone call with your decluttering fairy godmother) and let's talk about releasing those things that tug at our heart strings and hang around longer than they should. 💔
.
Book now via the link in my profile 👯 . . .

One of the things I love to do is share my ideas with groups. I've presented at conferences (in my previous career as a Communications and Marketing Manager), I've guest-appeared on live webinars, I've presented kitchen organisation workshops… And I've been on live TV and radio. .
This year I'd love to speak at any companies who run a staff wellness programme - I want to share my expertise on how decluttering can lower stress levels, increase energy and boost productivity. I think it is a fascinating and potentially untapped aspect of wellness. .
Do you know anyone in HR that might be interested in this? I would love if you could tag them in this post to spread the word. Thank you! . . .

Here's a fun fact about me: I love to write. In fact it was my first passion, and for my entire primary and secondary education, I thought I would become a journalist. I literally changed my mind on the first day of university, but that's another story! 🤦‍♀️
.
Now, I write in the snatches of time I have available, and it isn't creative as much as it is a record of events and feelings. Yep - I keep a journal. 📔
.
At the beginning of this year I rediscovered my bullet journal, and once again I'm hooked. Not only do I use it to keep a record of what has been done already, I use it to help me keep organised. Are you a fan of bullet journalling? Would you like to see some snaps of my journal pages to get a feel for what it is all about? 😇
.
PS. This cool photo is NOT of my journal. It's by Dariusz Sankowski.... I'm pretty sure his journal wouldn't be filled with ALL THE COLOURS like mine is 🌈 . . .

😰 Do you feel like you live with constant stress? I recently asked my tribe what it was that stressed them out the most at home and these were just some of the things that cropped up: 🌪️ Mess 🗄️ Lack of systems 🛹 🎳 🧩 ⚽ Clutter 💩 Other people's crap .
 These are common complaints. It's the unfortunate string that ties so many of my clients together - the underlying stress caused by a disorganised home. When home is not restful, your body and mind aren't able to recharge and you feel less able to deal with things that should be minor stressors - like slow people in the supermarket when you're running late, or like idiot drivers going out of their way to piss you off when you've had a loooooooong day, or like annoying people on the phone who just talk too damn slow and don't they know you're busy and have a lot on your plate...? 🤬 .
 If you have a sneaking suspicion that clutter and disorganisation could be adding stress to your home life, let's book a time for a chat. In the very least you can have a rant about how stressed you feel (#nojudgement)... and perhaps you'll hang up with a plan of attack to actually shift some of those stressors out of your life for good 🙌🏽 . 📲 Book your call today via the link in my bio . . .

🤔 Accessory storage can sometimes be a bit of a head scratcher. Handbags and purses are stuffed into nooks and crannies, getting all bent out of shape, while scarves are squished into boxes and never worn because we can't see them. Here are three ideas to help you change up how you store your pretties so you actually use and wear them. .
 1️⃣ Consider using wall space or the back of a door for storing small bags, scarves and even necklaces (pictured product both from Kmart) 👛
 2️⃣ If you have some shelf space and a large collection of scarves or chunky necklaces, try storing them in see-through containers (shop in the kitchen section of Kmart for some cool options). I adore the blast of colour a pretty scarf collection adds to a boring shelf and being able to easily see your scarves will make it more likely you will wear them 🧣  3️⃣ If you have a large collection that needs to be stored on a shelf, nest bags within bags within bags to protect the leather and hardware and preserve the shape 👜 .
How do you store your accessories? Is this something you struggle with or have you cracked a system that works for you? Do share! 🙏 . . .

Ah, Mt Washmore. Anyone want to confess to a pile in their home at the moment? I don't often get into a mountainous laundry situation because I fold as I go as much as possible - but when it's been a good line-drying day and a few loads have been washed and dried, I go full ninja to blitz through the folding ⚔️ .
Ninja folding actually starts with ninja hanging... intrigued? 🤪 It all goes back to my principle that if we think like factories and turn ourselves into a one-person-production-line, we can blitz through the jobs and become efficiency machines on pretty much any repetitive task 🤖 .
Want to know how you can learn to think like a factory? Check out my blog post via the link in my profile and then go forth and factorify your life 💪 . . .
