SortMySpace Ltd is at the forefront of helping the world of Professional Organising to grow here in the UK. Here are some of the key events you've sadly missed. Do check out our forthcoming events page. We look forward to seeing you there!
Event: NOW (National Organising Week)
When: 7th – 13th November 2016
National Organising Week is designed to celebrate the positive impact of decluttering & organising your home.
APDO is running a third annual National Organising Week asking: Why delay letting go of those possessions which are cluttering your home and impacting on your precious living space? Declutter N.O.W.
So from 7th to 13th November, APDO is launching a mission to encourage UK households to tackle those niggling tasks. APDO members specialise in assisting people to clear their clutter and organise their homes, but members can also help clients mentally declutter negativity from their lives.
Katherine will be participating in:
• APDO's Donate a Day to charity (more below)
• An online Houzz discussion throughout the week helping the public to tackle their clutter challenges
• A live Twitter chat Thursday 10th November 9 – 10pm
• Online video interviews on Facebook talking about clutter and how to beat it.
Event: Donate a Day at Dress for Success

As part of National Organising Week (NOW) during 7-13th November, Katherine has persuaded five other APDO organisers to join her and lend their time and expertise to the charity Dress for Success Greater London. We'll be sorting their boutique and stock room in their new premises in East London.
Dress for Success Greater London is a charity which empowers women who previously fell on hard times. By providing them with a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to thrive, the ultimate aim is for women to achieve economic independence. They train and prepare women for interviews and, when she is successful in getting the job, Dress for Success provide her with a free capsule wardrobe and ongoing support.
Watch out for live updates on the day via social media as we blitz the stockroom and boutique!

Curious about minimalism? Wishing you could cut through all the clutter to focus on what REALLY matters?
SortMySpace Ltd's founder Katherine Blackler is thrilled to give London residents the opportunity to see this groundbreaking film about making room for what truly counts in the hustle and bustle of today's world.
* UK Screenings
The film is not out for general release in the UK and has been proudly brought from the USA to SE London by SortMySpace Ltd, a member of APDO (the UK's Association of Professional Declutterers and Organisers).
Shortwave Cinema is a short walk from London Bridge station and located at the south end of trendy Bermondsey Street, the perfect weekend brunch spot pre-show. The cinema also serves drinks, pizzas, cakes, ice-cream and popcorn. We'd encourage you to mingle after the screening with fellow practicing or aspirational local minimalists. Katherine will also be available in the bar afterwards if you have any questions on how a professional organiser & declutterer can help you in your home, work or life.
Watch the trailer:
