APDO launched Spring Clearing Week in 2018. We ran our second Campaign in 2019 and our members have shared a wealth of experience and inspiration. You can read a round-up of tips, blogs and interviews from our members, including two fantastic interviews with Tara Button, Founder of BuyMeOnce and with Alys Penfold, Community Activator at Library of Things!
Research by MoneyMagpie in 2017 found that 50% of the UK population has ditched the traditional ritual of spring clean citing apathy and a lack of time. APDO Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers is keen to ensure that this valuable chance to clear the decks of any physical (and consequently mental) clutter is not lost. They launched Spring Clearing Week in 2018 to highlight the benefits of an annual review of our ‘stuff’.
Springtime is a time of renewal and growth. With lengthening days, many of us enjoy an increase in energy levels and have an extra spring in our step. It’s a great opportunity to take stock of our plans for the coming year and to revive any languishing new year resolutions. It’s a good time to ask ourselves whether our environment is helping or hindering us from achieving those goals.
During Spring Clearing Week, APDO members across the UK and beyond will be advising and encouraging people to clear away the clutter that weighs us down. You’ll find us:

The task of tackling clutter on your own often feels overwhelming. Our experts can work alongside you to help clear a path through the clutter and the stress it causes, leading to a calmer life and home.
A professional organiser can suggest ways of making the most of the space you have. They can also help you set up systems to enable you to find everything you need, so that in the future, you’ll find it easier to control your clutter.
APDO members have helped thousands of people all over the country save time and money by sorting out their stuff. Find inspiration and motivation via the guest blogs on our News & Media page or on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
Spring Clearing Week aims to inspire people to think about the clutter they are living with and encourage them to take action: the idea is to clear before you clean. For support, guidance and motivation with your spring clearing during this special week (and, indeed, all year round!) get in touch with an organiser near you.
Following media interest in the Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo there has been increased demand for APDO members to share their knowledge.
Some of APDO’s KonMari™ Consultants featured on BBC’s One Show, BBC Radio Solent and BBC Radio Leicester. Other members have appeared in Huff Post, The Times, Daily Mail and the Jewish Chronicle. The BBC explained what the real-life Marie Kondos do while our members have taken part in panel discussions on TRT World, getting coverage as far as Dubai Eye Radio.
From digital decluttering to living with hoarding behaviours, finessing your filing to KonMari-ing your knickers, APDO has experts at hand for quotes and interviews.
APDO members across the UK will be celebrating Spring Clearing Week by running workshops, giving talks and sharing special offers. That’s alongside all their regular work decluttering and organising homes and work-spaces up and down the country!
Our members are frequently interviewed in the media. This year we are focussing on radio appearances to share the benefits of a good spring clear with a wide audience. If you’d like to feature a Professional Organiser on your radio show, you can find your local organiser here.
The APDO blog contains a wealth of advice to motivate and inspire your #SpringClearing! You will also find us sharing our collective wisdom and experience as guest bloggers for other organisations, providing motivation and inspiration on all aspects of decluttering and clearing the decks this springtime.
