Habitual Clutterholic

You are like 56% of Clare's clients since 2001

 

A Habitual clutterholic is so named because their clutter is a habit that is so ingrained that it takes a significant amount of time and effort to deal with the clutter.

​​

You are likely to see:

  • They have an equal amount of visible and hidden clutter

  • They have more coming onto their conveyor belt than coming off, so after a blitz they notice their clutter starts re-accumulating / reappearing over a short period of time.

  • They usually do a grocery shop once or twice a week.

  • They will be unable to thoroughly clean their homes due to the clutter.

  • They will usually 'browse' for non-grocery items (clothes, electrical items, books etc), buying when they see something they like rather than because they need it.

  • They will be unable to thoroughly clean their homes due to the clutter.

  • They will usually 'browse' for non-grocery items (clothes, electrical items, books etc), buying when they see something they like rather than because they need it.

  • They often get bored easily, and struggle to commit and complete tasks, hobbies etc.

  • They accumulate clutter without even realising it because it's hard to notice new clutter amongst the old clutter.

  • Things are put either where there's free space or a free surface, or on top of existing piles of clutter rather than in a clearly defined home.

  • They will usually have 'blitz's' on their clutter - once or twice a year.

  • They sometimes get things out of their home quickly and easily in a blitz, but because they haven't created the new habits that they need to reduce the ongoing  They have an equal amount of visible and hidden clutter accumulation, the clutter eventually returns.

  • They are most likely to use a 'ruthless' or 'weeding' method to their decluttering.

  • They usually believe that they just need help to 'get on and do it', to make time, or need help with making decisions, believing that if they can get it back to 'normal' quickly they will be able to keep it that way.

  • They rarely have the patience to do a little and often to create the new habits required to maintain what they achieve with the blitz.

  • They want a 'quick and easy' solution - e.g. a blitz - because they often don't have the patience to commit to a journey.

  • They are almost certainly a procrastinator who allows other things to 'interrupt' any time they set aside for doing their clutter clearing.

  • They usually struggle with the patience required to do a little and often in order to create the new habits required to maintain a clutter free home.

  • They may suspect, know or accept that there are underlying reasons for having their clutter that are not related to the genuine 'usefulness' or 'need' for the things.

  • They have lots of post and paperwork clutter amongst more 'general' clutter.

  • If you opened their cupboards, drawers and out of sight places, you would probably find their belongings stuffed in and disorganised.

  • More than 50% of the contents of their clutter are out-of-date things, to-do jobs that haven't been done, things that have been bought to use but never been used, bargain buys and special offer

  • Someone who is a Habitual clutterholic will struggle to use their rooms for their intended purpose e.g. having people round to dinner and eating at the dining room table, using a spare bedroom as a bedroom.

  • They are likely to have stopped inviting guests round because of the shame, embarrassment or feelings of failure they have because of the clutter.

  • A Habitual clutterholic will not feel that their clutter is as bad as the clutter of the people featured on the TV Hoarding programmes so will often avoid seeking help, believing they 'just need time' to deal with it themselves or that they need expensive help to clear it.​
