Decluttering Buddies

The Decluttering Group started earlier this year [2022] with over a dozen members. Some of us wanted to chuck out a few useless items, others had a more serious need for a radical clear out.

At our first proper meeting we had an excellent talk by LALG member Jenny Jones, who shared her wealth of professional experience in house clearance. At another meeting, some members of the LALG computer users group gave us a fantastic session on selling our treasure online. Now lots of us are on eBay and Facebook Marketplace etc.

Successful buddying

We are now starting to act as buddies for each other, providing moral support in the decluttering process.

Here are some tips for success:

Choose a buddy who is otherwise unknown to you, but someone you can be completely open and honest with

Make sure you are both mentally and emotionally ready to start decluttering

Don't rush; aim for short sessions - about an hour at a time is enough

Set achievable goals 

Be sensitive with each other, non-judgemental and supportive.
