In this podcast, Lesley talks to Claire Birnie. Claire is the owner and head organiser at The Tidy Life Project, an Edinburgh-based professional organising, decluttering and minimalism coaching company.

Never before in human history has the average family owned so much stuff. In fact, professional organisers have estimated that the average home holds as many as 300,000 items. With such an overwhelming number of belongings, it is no wonder that so many of us are seeking to declutter and simplify our lives. And back in 2018, Claire started a journey to live with less and inspired lots of other people to do that with her through her initiative Project 3000. Participants came from all around the world and it was a huge success.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The  basics of how Project 3000 works.
  • How do you decide what to offload every day - is it random or in categories?
  • Is the number 3000 relevant?
  • How did Claire's own Project 3000 evolve throughout the year.
  • What were the three most important factors that led to the project's success?
  • The importance of targeted donations and sustainability within the Project 3000 journey.
  • Is Project 30000 something you can repeat?

    Hello Lesley, as most are busy on Chrismas Eve, I sat down and listened to your Project 3000 interview. Then the lady singing about her clutter which made me smile. I now have incentives for the New Year. Merry Christmas.
