Leah helping people declutter both their homes and wardrobe
A GROUP has been started for people who want to declutter their wardrobes and homes.
The Elevated Image Collective Facebook group was started by Barnard Castle image consultant Leah Hobson.
She has also run a successful Decluttering Teesdale Facebook group for the past three years.
Ms Hobson said: “The group has monthly challenges to help its members who are frustrated with the amount of items in their homes and all the work it creates to care for and tidy them.
“The challenges to live with less and create space for life and hobbies have continued and many members are piling up items to donate, sell and skip when the time is right.
“Now a new group has formed to meet the demand of women who are dissatisfied with their image and overwhelmed by clothes and accessories. The challenges will reveal how to curate a wardrobe and enhance their look.”
The group works through colours, styles and shapes to create a wardrobe that fits and flatters women.
Ms Hobson said: “The groups are both supportive and the privacy of its members is respected. There’s no need to struggle alone – the groups are free to join and here to help.”
Group member Kathy Burrage, from Barnard Castle, said she had been motivated to “get her act together” and organise her home.
She added: “Understanding colour, defining my style and decluttering my wardrobe have been very important.”
Victoria Burnet, from Barnard Castle and an active member of the decluttering group, added: “As the daughter of a hoarder, I find the decluttering group really helpful by supporting and helping me manage my own habits so I don’t go down that road myself. It’s a friendly and supportive group that I find a major help in managing my house and keeping things in order and clutter free.”
