Q. My friends might criticise me for getting help with my clutter.  What should I say?

A. Many of our clients have told us that they have been poo-poohed by their friends or family for getting help with clutter, who say things like:

  • You can do it yourself, you just have to set aside the time
  • Don't be so self-indulgent, that's just a stupid luxury
  • I can tell you exactly what to throw away
  • I love organising other people, I'll do it for you
  • Why can't you do it on your own? You don't need any help
  • What a waste of money!

You might reply something like:

  • I need to do what is right for me.
  • It's all making me so down that I can't do it by myself
  • You'll get it when you see how much happier it makes me
  • If you help me, I will be worried about boring you
  • If I have a professional in, they will be working for me and I'll be able to control what happens
  • Working with a expert means that it will get done a lot more efficiently and quickly

After all it's your stuff, in your home, and deciding to work with a professional is YOUR CHOICE.
