What type of clutter personality are you?

As a Professional Organiser, it’s vital to grasp the client’s brief and external challenges (space or financial limitations, whether they own or rent the home/office, comporate guidelines etc.)  However an understanding of their habits and personality can also offer vital clues as to the best solution for de-cluttering and re-organising.

Firstly clutter can be defined as any of the following, according to Karen Kingston, author of Clear your Clutter with Feng Shui:

  1. Items that are not used or loved.
  2. Things that are untidy or disorganised.
  3. Too many things in too small a space.
  4. Anything unfinished.

Those who tend to accumulate clutter generally fall into distinct personality types. Read on to see if you recognise any of these characteristics in this article published in The Finder magazine and the first steps you can take to create a sense of order and space.   APO. The Finder Sept 2011
