APDO launched Spring Clearing Week in 2018.
Research by MoneyMagpie in 2017 found that 50% of the UK population have ditched the traditional spring clean citing a lack of time, apathy and the ongoing cleanliness of the home as their reasons for doing so. 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 abandoned too, so 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 a spring in our step! It’s a great chance to take stock of your plans for the coming year. It’s a fantastic time to revive any languishing new year resolutions and focus on whether your environment is really helping you to achieve those goals.
During Spring Clearing Week, APDO’s members across the UK and beyond will be advising and encouraging you to clear everything surplus in your life. You’ll find us:

The task of tackling clutter on your own can often feel overwhelming. This is when an expert can work with you and clear a path through the mess, and the stress it causes, to unveil a calmer life and home.
Working with you, a professional organiser can suggest ways of making the most of the space you have. You’ll be able to find everything you need, whenever you need it. And 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 the 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 and clear before you clean. For support, guidance and motivation with your spring clearing this week (and all year round!) get in touch with an organiser local to you.
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.
