▲ SLUG SLUG
ideas come from visiting di erent
properties, but if I go into a place
that has, well, nothing in it, I'm
definitely not impressed.'
Some people prefer the minimalist
look - less to clean and easier to keep
tidy - but at the other end of the
spectrum, you can get carried away
with too much clutter.
One reason for that is the recent
interest in upcycling. eople prefer to
'do up' items instead of throwing them
out and buying new. While it's better
for the environment and your bank
account), storing pieces of furniture
that you intend to upcycle when you
have time doesn't help if you are trying
to unclutter your home. o choose your
upcycling projects with caution - do
you really have room for yet another
distressed chest of drawers?

MIDDLE GROUND

arah favours a happy medium We,
as adults, constantly collect things.
We're always bringing things into the
home that are not needed. We don't
need to buy half the things we do -
they're just not necessary.
hat said, I'm certainly not a fan
of bare rooms. Homes should be cosy,
and look and feel homely. inimalism
is just not practical, especially if there
are kids around! I get that some people

live di erently to others, but I'm really
bad in that I want to live in a clutterfree house, but by nature, I just put
things on the side to deal with later.
nd of course later never comes.
nless you are incredibly diligent,
you're going to have things lying
about - and I think that's O .'

ON A MISSION

arah says her mission in life is to
clear the worktop in her kitchen, but
admits it's never going to happen.
However, as a natural born problem
solver, she says there are always ways
to keep mess to a minimum.
'I'm obsessed with those little
bowls that have lids on. hey conceal
all sorts. ut what I can't stand is a
stu er - those people who come
along and stu things away in drawers
- because you never know where
anything is. I'd rather the room was in
chaos than everything being moved
and stu ed away. o, getting the
balance right - a home that has the
right amount of clutter - can be hard.'

TIDY UP TIME

According to Sarah, the rule is to clear
up household surfaces at least once
a month, because as we get older, we
tend to become more obsessed with
holding onto things we don't need.

here's a fine line between collecting
and hoarding, though.
Everyone should avoid hoarding
if they possibly can!' she says. Even
the kids' paintings from school need a
place - don't dump them on a pile that
will inevitably grow and grow. Having
said that, I'm pathetically sentimental
- I have photos of my four boys
everywhere and I've kept everything
they've made over the years at school.
hey'd come home from pre school
and give me something they'd made,
but I couldn't - and still can't - throw
them out! y husband raham got
so fed up with all the kids' bits and
pieces lying around that he built me
some special shelves in our bedroom
to house them - a solution, you see.'
So, is storage the answer to an
over cluttered property torage
