WELCOME TO LIGHT STYLE SPACE
Do you need to make some space?
I'm a declutterer - I work with you to help let go of some of your things and put the others in order. I find new homes for almost everything you decide to let go of using #landfillasalastresort.
I'm Tash, a declutterer and personal organiser.
During our sessions, I'll get personal! I’ll ask you about your denim collection, get up close and personal with your sock drawer, and we'll figure out how to decide what needs to go and what can stay.
I can help you change your relationship with stuff and give ideas on how to live with less. I provide practical advice on how to say goodbye to things. The simpler life is, the easier it is to be content.
I aim to donate, recycle or sell your unwanted things and pledge to use landfill only as a last resort.
I've been helping people declutter since 2016. I'm passionate about what I do and I love to find new homes for old things. Previously a project manager, I now split my time between south west London and a family farm in Wiltshire. I'm interested in climate change and the plastic, waste & recycling problems we all face, so I co-founded the sustainability network And The Future, where we educate ourselves and others about what we can do to make changes in our everyday lives.
During our decluttering sessions, I can offer simple hacks to be greener at home.
DO ANY OF THESE RING TRUE WITH YOU?
My home is too cluttered and I'd like to change that
So many of us simply have too much stuff. If you're thinking it's about time some of your belongings found a new home, talk to me and I'll help you get started.
My clothes don't all fit in one wardrobe and are taking over
Too many clothes and don't know where to start? Every item brings back a memory? Talk to me and we'll work through each item one by one. The wardrobe is a good place to start, as you know what you don't like and what doesn't fit anymore.
I'm moving house and I don't want to take all this stuff with me.
A great time to have a clear out is when you're moving house, especially if you're downsizing. I work with people who don't want to take their clutter with them. Talk to me and we'll work towards only taking with you the things you love.
I WANT A SIMPLE LIFE
I just want to be surrounded by things I love
Minimalism is a strong word. But you want to live in a home where everything has its place and there's a reason for having each item, whether its for practical or sentimental reasons. Talk to me and we can work through the excess clutter.
I WANT MY SPARE ROOM BACK
My spare room isn't spare anymore, it's too full of stuff
You have a spare room but it's the dumping ground for everything you don't have space for. You want to rent it out, or simply have that space back. Talk to me and we'll work methodically through everything in it and have it looking gorgeous.
I need help to empty a relative's house. Or, my company is moving and I'm tasked with finding homes for everything.
If you're after a house or office clearance service, I will work with you to meet a deadline. I take things away to be recycled or sold. Any profits will be shared with you.
Tasha is amazing! I was overwhelmed with the task of downsizing my items and packing up my flat for a new life abroad. She came and created a pragmatic plan, structured approach on how to climb the mountain, whilst remaining extremely sensitive and supportive in my process of deciding which items to give up. What I also loved is that she also knows where items should go - to recycling or eBay or car boots and takes care of all these arrangements. Did you know moth affected cashmere can be reused? I could not have done it without her!

Initial phone or zoom consultation free
I offer a free 30 minute consultation over the phone or zoom. After that, my fee is £45 per hour for decluttering sessions, with a minimum £45 charge. I don't charge mileage if you're in London, but I do pass on parking costs and congestion charges if applicable. I charge mileage from the M25 outwards of 25 pence per mile. I suggest that our sessions are between 2-4 hours long and I will fit in with your schedule where I can.
After our sessions, I will take your things away so you feel the immediate effect of the new space. I find them new homes in a conscious, sustainable way using landfill as a last resort. Sometimes this means selling them online. If your things make any reasonable profit, I am sometimes able to share this with you or can donate it to charity. The value is in the decluttering though and any extra cash made is a bonus and typically might be enough for a meal out or cover my fee.
If you've decluttered your own things and just want a hand rehoming them, I offer a collection service of £45 per car load, plus mileage if applicable.
More about me
I am a professional declutterer.
I began my declutter journey in January 2015. It started with a pair of shoes - everyone has to start somewhere. I left my job as project manager in the graphics industry in 2016 and since then have worked with dozens of people helping them let go of things and rehoming them, while helping them live more simple, happy lives.
Take a look at my blog: Declutter diaries it started as updates on progress of my passion for selling things on Ebay, when I first started selling stuff online, went on to be a bit green and eco-minded, and is now about decluttering and how it's changing my life, and hopefully yours.
Check out my page on Instagram. It's a space to share some of the beautiful, interesting or strange things that pass through my hands on a regular basis. Share what you need to get rid of using #lightstylespace and win a free decluttering session.
AND THE FUTURE?
I'm co-founder of And The Future? a sustainability network. We send out regular newsletters with challenges and ways of living a more sustainable lifestyle, which includes, obviously, living with less, hence the decluttering.
