Have you ever taken stock and looked around your home and wondered just where did all this stuff come from? Your next thought is I need to declutter! I usually declutter when I move house, and as I don't move house very often it can take me months to pack all the goods and chattels, decluttering as I go.
I definitely have a penchant for hanging on to things because I might need them one day or for sentimental value but I admire friends who live a minimalist lifestyle and have no problem with disposing of material items which no longer serve a purpose.
If you have ever taken a moment and decided it is time for a spring clean but are not really sure the best way to tackle the beast, then these Decluttering Workshops may be for you.
