Worry no more! 

Paperwork is a big problem in homes all around the world. It appears through your letterboxes, piles up EVERYWHERE and leaves you with the gigantic task of sorting it all out. Paperwork causes annoying clutter hotspots all around the house and it never seems to go away!

And while you may have a filing system of sorts, it's most likely outdated, bursting at the seams and under utilised. Your filing is often on top or in front of the filing system rather than inside it!

You have been burying your head in the sand for way too long and you know the time has come when you need to jump in and tackle it...but how?

Let's be real here - who on earth gets excited about the prospect of decluttering and organising paperwork? Well, we do but then I guess you knew that.

So, let us guide you every step of the way. If your paperwork is out of control, this is going to take some time to sort. But if you follow our programme, go methodically, thoroughly and efficiently, trust us when we say you'll get there much quicker and with huge success.

If you're going to trust us to help you with something as important as paperwork, then you're going to want to know who we are and why we are the right people to help you along this journey.

Let's cut to the chase.

We've been tackling paperwork for over 24 years between us and we LOVE how a paperwork sort out makes people feel and what a difference it makes to the calm in a home.

We would go so far as to say paperwork is undoubtedly the most important area of your household to take control of.

We have delved into every category of paperwork with people all over the world and we've learnt a thing or two along the way and we want to share the paperwork love!

We live, eat and breathe decluttering. It comes as no surprise that paperwork is a HUGE problem for so many people. So we want to filter those filing cabinets, purge those paperwork piles and curtail, categorise and containerise that clutter.

So if you want to get your Project paperwork underway, we'd love to be with you every step of the way.

Frequently Asked Questions


This is a comprehensive course designed for you to take your time over. Each video is on average 10-15 minutes long so you can tackle the learning and your paperwork project in bitesize chunks. 


We would highly recommend you do all three modules in Project Paperwork but each course is designed so you can do it standalone. 

The Core Principles will explain all the basics of paperwork decluttering and organising and will teach you how to tackle your paperwork decluttering project.

The Deep Dives course will teach you how to drill down to the nitty gritty of every category of paperwork you might have, challenge deep seated habits and ensure you feel fully in control of all the decisions you make.

The Filing System will show you how to set up the right system for your home and categorise and label effectively.

Al three modules together will ensure you achieve the most thorough paperwork project you have ever done.

How much is the course?

The three courses can be bought as a bundle for $99 (normally $297). Whilst each of the courses has a different focus, we highly recommend you embark on the full Project Paperwork to get the best results.

You can use this currency converter to check how much that is in your local currency.

Is this course included in the normal membership?

Yes this course and all our Standalone Courses are included in both monthly, quarterly and annual membership. Just one thing to note - if you buy a monthly membership, you will have access to this course and all the other features of The Declutter Hub membership for less than you will pay for the whole course, so that's definitely worth thinking about.

How does Lifetime Access work?

You will have access to the course with a user name and password as long as we are still operating (and we aren't planning on leaving any time soon!)

Do you have any other courses available?

Yes, we have our Room by Room Bootcamp, our SOS course, our Resets and Routines Course and our monthly, quarterly and annual membership options. If you are feeling overwhelmed with clutter, our membership options offer the best value by far.
