Over the last year or so I’ve been conducting market research, and what I’ve heard time and again is that doing decluttering by oneself really sucks.
One of the biggest blocks people identified to getting started was getting stuck in thinking how much work it was going to be, or how much it was going to suck and that certainly didn’t inspire them to deal with their clutter.
Obviously, I can’t be all over the world in individual’s homes in person all at once, but I wanted to find a way to provide you with inspiration to work on clearing your clutter, and to do it in a group setting that provides the community back drop and support you are probably needing in your declutter journey.
Decluttering doesn’t have to suck because you don’t necessarily have to do it by yourself. Traditionally, the options working on decluttering with someone else meant asking a friend or family member to help or hiring a professional to come in.
These are great options, but I’ve been inspired to offer a third option – virtual group clutter clearing sessions on Skype. For the month of June they are donation-based so no one need worry about the cost of attending.
What are group clutter clearing session?
Very simply, a group of us will get together via video call on Skype and work on clearing our clutter. I provide the structure for our time together as well as being available for you to ask questions.
I also like to add a healthy dose of fun to the sessions and will teach you energetic techniques you can use after the session is over.
What you need to participate:
An area in your home you want to spent about 2 hours decluttering.
A Skype account and basic knowledge of how to use Skype.
A reliable internet connection.
A laptop or desktop computer (mobiles and tablets don’t work with the video function in a group setting on Skype). If you’re using a desktop, you’ll need to be able to move it to the area where you’ll be working.
The ability to donate at least $1 per session.
The dates (USA):
Thur 6/9, 4-6pm CDT
Tues 6/14, 1-3pm CDT
Thur 6/16, 10am-noon CDT
Thur 6/23, 4-6pm CDT
Wed 6/29, 1-3pm CDT

(The major city for Central Time is Chicago).
I have at least one spot open in each of the sessions scheduled for June (a couple of the dates have two spots left). To register for your spot send me an email with “group clutter clearing” in the subject line and let me know which dates and times you’d like to participate in.
Each session is limited to 6 participants – the spots are available on a first-come-first-serve basis, so I recommend getting your request in sooner rather than later. Send me an email now and I’ll send you more details about how to connect with us at the designated time.
