Einstein once said, “out of clutter find simplicity”. Wise words, but if only it were that easy, Albert! In the absence of a magic wand and cleaning fairies, here are six simple tips to getting organised.
Work in Bite Sized Chunks To avoid being overwhelmed when confronting a mountain of “stuff”, limit your efforts to an hour at a time.
Tackle the Paper Trail Bills, newspapers, receipts…chances are you have dozens in assorted places. Create a designated “inbox” for important papers—a super simple trick to instantly declutter.
Deal with Dangerous Distractions When decluttering a room, place a “doesn’t belong here” box in the doorway. When for example you find a corkscrew in the lounge, toss it in the box instead of wandering into the kitchen and potentially getting side-tracked (by the coffee machine).
Involve Your Kids Instead of just telling your children to pick up clothes, ask how they would like them categorised. You may think in terms of t-shirts, shorts etc; they may group by colours or seasons. Kids will be more willing to participate in a system they’ve helped create.
Crowded by Clutter? 6 Simple Tips to Getting Organised
Professional Photography Now Essential You never get a second chance to make a first impression. The first time a potential buyer sees your home is almost always in a photo so that photo needs to be good—really good! We call it a “hero” shot.
Why? Well—imagine for a moment— walking past a shop window display in the mall. The glass is dirty, the lighting dull and there is a boring rack of clothing on display.
It’s not very inviting is it? Regardless of what’s inside, that clothing store will not attract as much foot traffic as one with attractively dressed man-nequins modelling the look you could achieve if you enter the store.
Successful retailers pay careful atten-tion to create enticing window
Try the 12-12-12 Clutter Challenge For a fun way to declutter with the whole family turn it into a competi-tion: who will be first to find 12 items to throw away, 12 items to return to their proper place and 12 items to donate? A healthy competition that also cleans the house means every-one is a winner!
The Closest-Culling Hanger Test To be confident about which clothes to recycle, hang all your clothes with the hangers in the reverse direction. When you wear an item, put it back on the hanger in the correct direction. After a few months the “nice but never worn” garments will become obvious.

What people are saying about Fiona... Despite knowing there was a con-tract already in place on subject property, Fiona took the trouble to show me through the premises and to take my details and complete a secondary contract. Fiona drew up the contract in a favourable way, whereby no costs would have been incurred if the original contract had been completed.
There were a few little hiccups along the way to final settlement, but Fiona handled the process in a most pro-fessional way, for which I thank her.
Harcourts were very good and should I wish to sell subject property in the future, I would hope to list it with Fiona Senton at Harcourts.

displays that sell the benefits of pur-chasing their products.
Similarly, when selling a house, you are not selling four bedrooms and two bathrooms on a large section.
You are selling the story, the lifestyle, the dream that could be achieved by owning that house—ample living room for all, entertainment areas, convenient location. And this story is exactly what a professional photog-rapher is trained to capture; first with the hero shot then with subsequent images.
More buyers will be enticed by bright, magazine-quality photographs telling a story and selling a lifestyle than by point and shoot type images.
For a retailer, higher foot traffic al-ways means more sales. For a home seller, higher foot traffic means creat-ing competition among buyers which leads to a higher sale price.
Professional photography is not a nice to have; it’s essential to achieve the best sale price.
