Do you suffer from comparintintis (yes again it is a real thing ;-)) We want you to ask yourself some questions; Why do you use the platform? What value does it add to your life?

086 | Micro Decluttering
This week we chat about Micro Decluttering! We know that many of you don't have hours and hours each week to dedicate to decluttering and organising your home so we created the idea of a Micro Declutter! The idea is you take a small pocket of time, 2 minutes, and choose an area to quickly declutter. You could be waiting for the microwave to bing or the kettle to boil, any small pocket of time, grab the Bingo sheet and get decluttering! We created a Bingo Game to go along with today's episode and as always we hope you have a giggle with us and enjoy the conversation!This week's episode is sponsored by Professional Organiser Training by Angela Esnouf from The Professional Organiser's Edge.We would love you to join in the discussion of decluttering over on our Facebook page and Instagram page and our ALL NEW Facebook Community.If you do love the show and would like to show your support by becoming a patron, head over here to make a small monthly donation (as little as $1 a month) and know that any amount makes a huge difference to us being able to cover costs of producing this podcast.You also have the chance to sign up to receive the BONUS SECRET EPISODE that Kirsty & Amy recorded for their Art of Decluttering friends.

084| Expo Interviews
This week we are really excited to be bringing you a special episode of our podcast. It is our first ever live recording, we recorded it at the Simplified Living and Lifestyle Expo in Sydney in September 2018. We had a stand where we invited people to interviewed by us about decluttering and organising in their homes. What you will notice is this episode has lots of background noise as it was a fun and exciting expo to be involved in and the podcast is a fun experiment. This episode is also a lot longer than normal so you can enjoy us all for longer this week. A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who came to visit us at the expo and particularly those who were vulnerable enough to give us a window into their lives via the interviews. As always we hope you have a giggle with us and enjoy the conversation!This week's episode is sponsored by Professional Organiser Training by Angela Esnouf from The Professional Organiser's Edge.We would love you to join in the discussion of decluttering over on our Facebook page and Instagram page and our ALL NEW Facebook Community.If you do love the show and would like to show your support by becoming a patron, head over here to make a small monthly donation (as little as $1 a month) and know that any amount makes a huge difference to us being able to cover costs of producing this podcast.You also have the chance to sign up to receive the BONUS SECRET EPISODE that Kirsty & Amy recorded for their Art of Decluttering friends.

This week we chat with about our jobs! What we do and what we don't do in our profession. This is particularly timely as Marie Kondo's Netflix sensation "Tidying Up" is taking the world by storm. We talk about our ideal clients and some of the preconceived ideas people have of our job. We have a conversation around some of the things that we aren't but we do. For instance, we aren't cleaners but we do clean, we are furniture removalist, but we do move furniture. We aren't rubbish removalist but we do help you to get rid of rubbish and donations.

082 | Sports Equipment
This week we chat with about decluttering your sports equipment. What are you still using? Do you have sport equipment for a sport you haven't played in 20 years? Should it be moved on to a memorabilia box or donated rather than taking up real estate in your cupboards/garage. Do you have a treadmill that makes you feel guilty every time you look or can you not even see it anymore because it has become a clothes horse? In this episode we encourage you to clear all the clutter off the treadmill and use it or let it go! You also get to hear all about the many different sports and exercise activities of Amy (& Kirsty) and we give you great tips on how to store your equipment and where to donate good condition used items to. As always we hope you have a giggle with us and enjoy the conversation!Questions to ask yourself:Do you still love it?

This week we chat with about decluttering your teenagers ;-) No, we chat about helping teenagers and parents learn to declutter and stay organised through the fun years! So it is the perfect one to listen to on your smart speaker where the teenager can hear ;-) We give helpful questions to ask yourself and we encourage everyone to value maintaining relationships as a priority over fighting over messy rooms.
