A professional de-clutterer, based in Exmouth, is giving New Year resolution tips to live a less cluttered life.
Tamsin Cooling, owner of Finding Spaces, a de-cluttering and organising company covering East Devon, is keen to share her secrets, helping people to identify belongings that are no longer loved or needed, then organising and creating new spaces for the remaining possessions.
Tamsin said decluttering was more than a passing trend; she said it can bring calm and space to clients’ lives.
Tamsin said: “De-cluttering and organising your life can address so many more situations. It is a process that helps people sort through their belongings, identify any items no longer needed, move these on, then organise and create space for the remaining possessions.
“Keep, re-sell, donate to charity or get rid. It’s that simple.
“There can be many reasons why clients need to call on my services. Moving house, changes in personal circumstances, dealing with the possessions left behind by loved-ones, or just trying to simplify our lives to ease stress; the list is endless.
“Many of us lack time and don’t know where to start. This process can appear overwhelming and we just don’t have the physical or emotional ability to deal with the task.
“Experts claim that being in a crowded and cluttered environment can overload your senses making you feel anxious therefore de-cluttering can reduce stress levels allowing you to be more calm and productive, freeing up your precious time.”
Tamsin, who is from Devon, relocated in 2016 from Berkshire where she ran a successful home services business for 11 years. She founded Finding Spaces earlier this year, covering Exmouth and East Devon.
She said: “My mission is to bring organisation into households through working with clients and helping them reclaim space within their home.
“Many people believe they can do this themselves, but when it comes to making a start, feel overwhelmed and do not know where to start.
“If it’s one area, or the whole house, having an advisor on board makes the process so much easier and more efficient. We all need help from time to time whether it is with a personal trainer, accountant or decorator - hiring a professional de-clutterer and organiser works in the same way. With a non-judgmental approach we can work together and you get to enjoy the end result.
Tamsin’s top tips for a de-cluttered home:
