Arlene Miller, Declutter Specialist
KonMari™ Certified Consultant
So nice to meet you.
I combine my talents as a teacher, project manager, holistic practitioner, and KonMari™ Consultant trainee to offer you a guided and supported approach to decluttering and organizing.
Decluttering is so much more than sorting through objects in a closet, basement, or attic – it’s an opportunity to clear the slate and decide what kind of life you’d like to experience. What everyday objects do you want to surround yourself with to spark joy? What objects would you like to take better care of, and which would you like to let go? It is a way of living your life, with more freedom – space, time, and energy – to pursue the things that matter to you.
I didn’t always live this way
During a very difficult year, I inherited households of stuff – that of my beloved mother and grandmother. With nowhere else to go, these items ended up in my home and in a 10x10 storage locker I rented out. Talk about overwhelming!
I searched everywhere for help in processing and releasing these things. I read everything I could get my hands on in the worlds of simplicity and minimalism. Still, nothing quite “clicked” until I came across Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.
In it, Marie outlines her KonMari Method™, to taking stock, experiencing, appreciating, and releasing with gratitude the items in our lives. Her approach didn’t just focus on getting rid of things, but on connecting with the things that brought joy in my life.
Reducing my stuff by more than half
I implemented the KonMari Method™, and with time and determination, reduced my belongings by more than half. I live a wonderfully full, but clutter-free life and have made it my mission to help others do the same.
This experience inspired me to teach others the skills I have learned throughout the three-year process. Since then, I have become a KonMari™ Consultant trainee and have pooled many resources to establish a comprehensive personal curriculum to offer you support and to help you declutter your home.
I know what it is like to feel overwhelmed and alone while decluttering. Allow me to help guide and support you through this process using a proven, structured approach. Together, we can help clear up some space in your life.
