About Home Matters
The Professional Organiser behind Home Matters:
I, Marianne started Home Matters in Perth. My organising of spaces started decades before as a young child because our kitchen cupboards and robes had no doors so the contents were visible. Now I specialise in home organising services, decluttering, downsizing, packing and unpacking and showing people what's possible in their home.
I felt there was a need for helping people in their houses. People "In a mess", "In a muddle", confused, isolated or having health issues. They all needed someone with practical, fresh ideas and the energy to work with them.
Their homes hold a history; it can be from yesterday or 40 years ago. Often the photos and memorabilia have been neglected and the stories and identities left untold.
I work with clients to overcome the want to just leave it for another day.
There comes a time when people feel they need to change their habits and live & manage with what they love in their spaces. I guide people with this process.
As a Professional Home & Office Organiser, I love the sounds my clients make while organising and sorting. “Oh, I have been looking for that!”, “Gee, that’s looking good”, “My children will love you, they can have their friends over”, “You have left me with dust!” There are also the giggles of satisfaction or the “oh, yes” as they walk up the passage to take something to its rightful home. "When are you coming back?"
After many years, I am still helping people to organise, downsize, reduce, reuse, dehoard, declutter and donate. The modern word declutter often is a negative word as some people think it means "forced to throw it out now."
Thank you to the Clients who phone me to revisit, to do another room, “tweak” the pantry, help their friend who is moving or take me to an area of their home they were too ashamed to show me on my first visit. It is a journey I love.
