Space to Breathe
I attended which Kerry gave a talk at about clearing out your wardrobe and having a capsule wardrobe of 30 pieces. I thought it all sounded great but no way could I live with just 30 items. I also knew that I could benefit from Kerry's expertise to help with two bulging wardrobes but to be honest couldn't imagine living with so little.
Kerry got to work straight away and got all my clothes down into the lounge in one pile, we started sorting through them piece by piece. Charity, bin, sell, keep! Then the keep pile was split into weekend/work/party. It was hard going, my emotions were up and down as I recalled stories happy and sad about each garment! Kerry has a way of emotionally detaching you from each piece that no longer serves you and just takes up space in your wardrobe and ultimately your head.
After an hour an half I thought we were done and each pile was complete, but Kerry didn't finish there. She moved away the piles to go and spread out my keep piles, she started putting outfit together and showing me how many different combinations I had in my 30 pieces. She also wrote a list of a few items I could do with adding to. But she explained if I buy new clothes its on a 1 in and 1 out basis. There were 4 bin bags of clothes, 1 to sell, that depressed me as I work full time, I'm a single mum and the thought of spending hours putting it on Ebay filled me with dread. She sensed this and offered to take the whole lot away that night and take it to a charity of my choice... I felt good that a charity shop somewhere was getting high end clothes (some with tags on).
Kerry gets stuck in and works at pace so you get full use of her expertise and advice through the session. That weekend I was able to dismantle the old horrid wardrobe that had taken up so much space in my bedroom as all my clothes now fit in the single built in wardrobe. And there is space! I've left the review this long as I wanted to see how I would feel and cope with my new wardrobe. In the 3 weeks since it was done I haven't missed 1 item, I haven't been tempted to replace anything with new stuff and getting ready in the morning is so easy and satisfying.
The space in my bedroom has given me breathing room and I've started to clean out other areas of my house and life in general. Kerry's services give you more than just the hours with her, they give you the freedom in your mind back and the space to live how you should be living, its liberating, cleansing and worth facing the emotional barriers.
