Stella said, ‘I've found a charity shop where you can park out in front. Will you help me load the car and take the stuff there?’
Cluttergone consultants don't throw things away or remove things from client’s houses. That is both the client's responsibility and their satisfaction. However, we are happy to help and will join them on trips to the tip.
We did everything we needed to do. Besides our trip to the charity shop, we formalised a filing system using some drawers in Stella's bedroom. The house was ready for the cleaning service.
‘I'd rather not be here alone when the cleaners come. Can I book you to be here? I don't expect to be able to do much while they are working, but I'd be more comfortable if you were in the house’.
‘Of course, I can just sit and carry on doing preliminary paper sorting. I'll see you then.’
