Cupboards packed with unused gadgets. Boxes full of obsolete chargers. Unpaid bills hidden among piles of junk mail. Wardrobes bursting with unworn clothes. Heaps of neglected children's toys. A dresser jammed full of mismatched socks. . . Sound familiar? Many of us feel increasingly overwhelmed by - and guilty about - the sheer amount of stuff packed into our homes. And we're starting to realise that being organised at home doesn't just mean always knowing where you left the remote; it means being able to face the world with a clear mind and increased energy. It all starts at home. But where? When the problem is so vast and we are all so busy, how do you even begin to tackle the clutter mountain? Professional organiser Vicky Silverthorn has the simple answer: start with your sock drawer. Using tried-and-tested methods, Vicky will guide you through practical, bite-sized tasks that will help you achieve a friendly level of organisation throughout your home and a new clarity of mind. With Vicky's help, you can fight back against the clutter and learn to love your home once more.
