Home Organisation

Your home should be your sanctuary: a calm, peaceful place to relax and unwind. For many of us this is not the case. Our busy lifestyles mean that often there are areas in our homes which feel cluttered, unloved, and make us feel anxious and stressed.

We can all identify with that feeling of having a cupboard which needs sorting out, a room which has become a dumping ground, or kitchen cupboards where you can never find anything! This is where I can come in. Putting aside dedicated time to address the space together means that those areas of your home which work their way to the bottom of your to-do list get done!

I keep you focussed on the task at hand, and suggest solutions for storage and systems. You’ll be amazed at how much we can get done together and how great it will feel when we are done.

We can help you restore peace and tranquility to your home.

It’s half term here in Edinburgh and just one day to go before we set off on our jollies to Skye. I find these wee breaks are everything these days and I can’t wait to get away with my boy team.

Howevs. There is one helluva hurdle to get over beforehand...
Packing for 5 people 😱
.
We are only going for 3 nights but we have to factor in: toys; books; nappies; comforters; tablets; snacks and that’s before we even think about packing OUR stuff.
.
No matter how organised you are, packing is stressy. So here are some top tips for packing for a staycation with kids:
.
🔑 Containment is key, as always. For the kids I put toiletries and nappies into separate bags (I use Ikea Istad) in their trunkies along with their clothes. For us we use packing cubes to keep everything organised: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B07JFSV5R2/ref=sspa_mw_detail_0?ie=UTF8&psc=1&th=1
.
🎒Pack a bag for the back of the car with kids’ essentials in. Ours are old enough now to manage this amongst themselves, sharing out sweets, passing books and comics to each other etc.
.
🛀🏼Decant toiletries into small bottles to take up less space (more environmentally friendly than buying travel-sized ones.)
.
🧺 Take a small laundry bag (the packing cubes I recommend above have one as part of the set) so you can keep dirty clothes separate and easily put a wash on when you’re back.
.
🔌 Remember to pack chargers.
.
🧳Check if your accommodation has a washing machine - if so you could half what you need to pack.
.
🧑🏼Get the kids to choose 5 items they want to take with them. It will keep them occupied for a bit whilst you do the rest.
.
☀️ Consider the weather and your activities and pack the right clothes and footwear.
.
📝Keep a list of what you’ve packed: useful for packing for the return journey and also you can reuse it next time.
.
Oh and take gin.

As you probably all know, as well as tidying I flipping well love an interior. So instead of wittering on about it on here, I’ve set up an account all about that very subject. It’s inspired by my own house which is a church which we converted about 10 years ago. I love to experiment in it and I’m excited about sharing it with you. Giz a follow @mother__interior 💞 ...

If Covid has taught us anything it has taught us that what we do not need is more STUFF. And since so many of you have been asking whether we are going to do gift vouchers in time for Christmas, we decided we would 😊

With many of us spending more time in our homes than we’ve ever done before, we have all learned that what we need is space; organisation and a calm, relaxing home. With Life/Edit gift vouchers you can treat yourself, or someone you love to just that. What better Christmas gift during the current time?

Lots of love and here’s to an organised future!

“The best thing we did was hire Zoë to help us update, declutter and home stage our parents’ house. It is a beautiful house and Zoë has made it look its absolute best, really glossy and sale-ready.”

“Zoë’s input to my life was invaluable not only is she very lovely and fun, her approach was gentle and I felt I was happy to let go of lots of things that didn’t need to be cluttering up my life anymore.”
