Spring Clearing Week (24-30 March 2018) is being launched in 2018 by APDO Association of Professional Declutterers & Organisers in a bid to help the nation remember to take stock of their stuff at least once a year!
Research by MoneyMagpie in 2017 found that 50% of the UK population has ditched the traditional spring clean citing a lack of time, apathy and the on-going cleanliness of the home as their reasons for doing so. APDO members are keen to ensure that this valuable chance to clear the decks of any physical (and consequently mental) clutter is not abandoned too, so they have launched Spring Clearing Week in 2018 to highlight the benefits of an annual review of our ‘stuff’.
APDO members around the country will be helping the public to declutter and clear out after the dreary winter months to revitalise their environment with renewed energy and vibrancy.
Being a Professional Declutterer and Organiser myself, I am convinced that Spring Clearing Week is a perfect opportunity to not only remind ourselves that we sneakily accumulate things pretty much every day, but to tune into the right wavelength to be able to consciously take note of it and take steps to remedy anything that triggers us.
Spring Clearing Week is a great chance to review priorities for the year ahead and pick up any lapsed new year resolutions. Using this week can help you focus on whether the environment in your home is really helping you to achieve these goals.
Katherine Blackler (SortMySpace Ltd), APDO head of partnership says: “APDO wants to harness the optimism felt by individuals at this pivotal time in the year when the clocks spring forward. We’re excited to launch Spring Clearing Week this March and see how we can encourage and inspire the public to tackle their spaces to make 2018 their best year yet!”
If you are interested in learning more about decluttering and/or how to go about doing it, the APDO website or my blog site are excellent first ports of call.
