And possibly the most appreciated, too? Do you have someone special in your life who needs a little organisational help? Well, local decluttering specialist, Kim Bloomfield of Blooming Organised, has come up with the perfect solution.
‘There’s this myth that anybody who requests the help of a professional declutterer and organiser must either be a compulsive hoarder or just plain lazy,’ says APDO (Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers) member, Kim. ‘In my experience, this simply isn’t true. There are a huge number of people out there who are rushed off their feet with families, work or running businesses and don’t know who to ask for help. When things finally get on top of them, they don’t know where to turn,’ she explains.
Kim also regularly works with people who are elderly, have health issues, or who have a house move looming. ‘Life in general has become much more complex and demanding and it’s so easy to get overwhelmed,’ she says.
If this brings to mind someone you know, then a Blooming Organised gift voucher could be the perfect Christmas present. ‘Sometimes the most valuable thing to give someone is the gift of time,’ Kim feels. Vouchers are available starting from £105 for a three-hour session including a free consultation to establish goals and hopes.
Recently Kim has completed a wide range of projects: Pantry and wardrobe declutters; handling a vast brooch collection; finding a buyer for a large quantity of valuable house bricks; and whittling down a huge assemblage of books accumulated over four generations. Kim has also helped one client downsize from their home of 42 years into a retirement village. ‘No two days are the same and I have not yet found something I can’t find a solution for!’ she says.
