What is the end result?

You will create a bag or box of at least 25 items that someone will collect and take away from you through Freecycle or you will take to a charity shop.

What do I get?

Over the 5 days you will get a daily email in the morning with a decluttering prompt and lots of helpful, friendly advice. The same email will be posted in the Facebook Group so you can’t miss it. Each day will have a different theme or method of identifying clutter and at the end of this course you will have decluttered at least 25 things from your home and life. There are also printable PDF’s that go alongside each prompt.

What does it cost?

There is no upfront cost or obligation to pay, simply pay what you think the course is worth via a paypal donate button at the end of the course.

The Facebook Group is private and only the people in the course can see your posts. Your family and friends cannot. The group is a place for you to share your decluttering journey with others, post before and after pics and celebrate getting rid of stuff.

What do I need to do?

You will need to commit to 10 minutes a day for 5 days.

Can I do more?

If you want to declutter more than 5 things a day that is great, but don’t get carried away because it can be overwhelming to take out the entire contents of a cupboard and go through it. Decluttering 5 things a day is a nice, easy, gentle way to regain control over your home.

What happens at the end of the course?

If you are on a roll and want to continue decluttering, that is great and you are welcome to stay on in the private Facebook group. The e-course will run with slightly different content each time and I’d love you to sign up to more courses.

What happens if decluttering brings up strong emotions?

Sometimes things we have around us can hold strong memories. If something you would like to de-clutter holds a memory that you’re not ready to process yet, that’s fine. It’s perfectly ok to leave it until you have the support you need to do so.

What have people said about the course?

“Phew! I feel better now, thanks. This is the great thing about doing this as a group Love it!”

“The course provided a painless way in to clearing away the clutter. Having the group there helped sort out some of my shame and embarrassment. It was great to know I’m not the only one! I feel I’ve now got some handy tools that I can keep using too. Linda”

“Normally I don’t declutter because I know I will feel like I’m drowning. Not even did I not drown on this course, I actually enjoyed it and had fun. “

“The Facebook group was both inspiring and a big support.”

“The prompts are so practical it’s easy to turn them into a habit – and I’m very non habitual around decluttering!”

“Lisa Cole is helpful and encouraging! Loved donating my bag of “stuff”. And that did not include what I threw out or recycled. Great class!” Erica

“It’s been brilliant – so simple, but just the kick up the ass I needed” Debbie

“I am finding this 5 things in 5 minutes approach brilliant because I can now make better decisions about things before I let them become clutter just by asking the questions on the printable worksheets. Every time I go to a cupboard or drawer now I’m looking at my stuff in a new way and making decisions instantly instead of waiting to have the energy or motivation to clear out the entire cupboard in one go. Decluttering is now a thing I do every single day in some small way, you’ve taken away that mammoth task monsta completely. Mwaaaah’s xxxxxxx Clare”
