Spring Clearing Week, 22 – 28 March 2021: Making Clutter Count

Launched in 2018, Spring Clearing Week is APDO’s annual initiative to help the UK to declutter their excess. APDO’s members across the UK and beyond will be advising and encouraging you to clear anything surplus in your life and how and where you can give your unwanted belongings a new lease of life.  This year we’ll be exploring constructive avenues for your clutter including where to

  • Donate
  • Sell
  • Recycle
  • Ditch

 

Why Spring Clearing?

Springtime is a time of renewal and growth; the days getting longer and 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 what you want to do and achieve in the coming year. It’s a good time to pick up any fallen new year resolutions and focus on whether your environment is really helping you to achieve those goals. And, when so many of us have found ourselves hunkered down at home in the past year, a review of our immediate environments will be more valuable than ever.

What is happening?

Due to the ongoing Covid restrictions our activities will be predominantly virtual for 2021 so look out for APDO members who’ll be

  • Blogging on APDO’s blog and partner websites
  • Providing tips on social media
  • Featuring in newspapers and magazines
  • Setting challenges for you to see what you can let go of
  • Running virtual workshops, coffee mornings and information sessions to help you tackle your decluttering projects at home or work.

 

How do APDO members help?

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.
