I work one on one with my clients to develop a vision for their ideal lifestyle. This vision doesn’t have to be perfect, just a starting point to explore what you really want to create for your life.
Then we develop clarity around around that vision by going through each possession, one by one, deciding which items spark joy and which do not. Items that spark joy are kept, displayed and organized so everything has a place. Items that don’t spark joy or serve a useful function are discarded. New habits that align with the vision are also created to maintain and expand upon the ideal lifestyle.
I work side by side with you throughout the process. We will pull out each item in the house of a particular category, make a big pile, and then go through items one by one. I take the lead on guiding the process, ask clarifying questions to help you make decisions, and take notes on important information you want to remember.
Book A Session
Personal, one-one-one sessions with Michell start with a tour of your home and all its storage spaces. Then I’ll ask you guiding questions to create a vision for your ideal lifestyle. The ideal lifestyle + the joy check is the foundation upon which all keep or discard decisions are made.
Then we will begin the decluttering process starting with clothes, then books, papers, komono (a Japanese term for all that other stuff you have in your house) and ending with sentimental items. We work by category, not room. The order is intentional and I highly recommend keeping to it.
I do lots of the heavy lifting, sorting, putting things in piles and then organize the items you choose to keep. Things will get messier before they get tidy. All storage is temporary until you have completed sorting through all of your items. We wait to organize last because storage opportunities may shift based on the choices you make.
I am happy to provide you a list of suggestions to donate or dispose of unwanted items but ultimately clients are responsible for the removal of all discarded items.
The number of sessions needed is based on how large your home is, the number of possessions you have, how quickly you make decisions, and how much “homework” you complete on your own. An estimate of how long the full process may take will be provided after the first session is complete. A full five hour session is required for the first session because it includes a tour of your home and setting the vision for the ideal lifestyle.
