Cheryl’s Paperwork Declutter

Cheryl was referred to me by another client. She was a woman who lived on her own and by her own admission, had got herself a bit overwhelmed with paperwork and felt her home was cluttered. She had no systems and felt out of control.

As it so happened the house did not feel overly cluttered, it felt quite lovely, but what was really nice was that we were able to chat about life and loves and put the world to rights. I spent two half days with Cheryl, often in silence, as she sat and knitted and I carefully went through her paperwork, shredding that which was not required, but still sensitive, binning other stuff and creating systems.
I also prepared her a sheet of everything she wanted to do (which had previously been on scraps of paper) and I a list of all her pensions, her account numbers and contact emails etc. In other words, everything in one place.  Paperwork was then neatly stored in a large ring binder with each section neatly labelled
We spent a lovely two days together and with Cheryl’s trust of me I was quickly able to come up with some solutions that made Cheryl happy.
If you are struggling to cope with paperwork get in touch to have a chat about how I could help.

My paperwork and things to do list had got seriously out of hand and I could spend days trying to condense all the various bits of information without making much headway. While visiting a friend and expressing my anguish of not being able to sort this problem she recommended Tracey Beesley at The Lifestyle Concept. A week or so later I rang Tracey and arranged for her to come to assess the problem. A date and time were set and Tracey arrived full of cheer and energy to tackle the mountain of data. She worked tirelessly collating the information and reducing it into 3 neat files with labelled divisions and front index. I now have been able to move forward as have learnt how to make notes on my iPad as well as “to do“ lists so the information in one place instead of many bits of paper. Having had Tracey’s help I now feel more in control and have time to actually have some fun.
