Liberate your home from clutter
With its dark days, tightening of the purse strings and back to work blues, January isn’t renowned for being a joyful month. Yet Ella Gibbs, the personal organiser and wardrobe guru – or Practical Princess as she’s better known – disagrees. She believes a January clearout is the answer which can be ‘fun as well as frugal.’ In Elle Decoration (January 2015) she celebrates the concept of ‘liberating your home from unwanted clutter’ and goes on to say that a home detox isn’t just about disposing of possessions but also ‘finding more effective ways of storing the things you want to keep.’
Futon Company says: A ‘home detox’ can be useful on both a practical and psychological level, especially if you live in a small space. There’s something particularly appealing about a well-ordered home, and utilising useful storage is a definite step in the right direction.
