Clutter got you stressed?

It doesn't have to be that way!

Wouldn't it be amazing to know exactly what to declutter, in which order, and how to do it? Join me!

Let me coach you through the process, so there's no guesswork involved and you can overcome overwhelm.

Maybe you know the feeling...


It's hard to know where to even start, because there's just so much stuff everywhere in your home. And every time you DO begin, it seems to make even MORE mess.


Looking at the piles that have accumulated stresses you out. You know you should DO something about it all, but WHAT? (So you end up just avoiding it all together.)


There never seems to be enough time to tackle a decluttering project and everything else that has to be done on a daily basis feels more important.

I've been there, staring at the piles, feeling stuck.

My journey began in 2010 when my husband and I got married and joined two households full of our own individual “stuff” and it became joint “stuff.”

So. Much. STUFF.

But then I decided enough was enough and threw all my extra time into decluttering and organizing our home until it became second-nature.

It was a whole new world for this former messy.

Over the years, I’ve learned from others along the way and I want to share those resources with you, as well. It’s been exciting to go through this transformation from feeling like I was failing most days to hey, I’ve actually got this!

And by working with me, you can, too.

The truth is that the 4 biggest decluttering mistakes people make are...

I get it. There are some hard decisions to make (that might stir up some uncomfortable emotions). But eventually, you’ll need to face the overflowing toy box or the piles of clothes in your closet that no longer fit.


Buying all the pretty organizers won’t help you conquer the chaos if you haven’t downsized your stuff. It costs more time and more money, in the long run, if you don’t edit the contents of your home first.


Sometimes the hardest part of decluttering is sifting through the emotions and memories (good and bad) that accompany the clutter. 


You get gung-ho about decluttering your home. You can do this! Let’s start right now! And then you pull everything out and overwhelm yourself.

declutter at home!

This 12-week program provides you with the support and guidance you need to declutter your home with confidence, while avoiding those all-too-common mistakes.

Stop spending your $$$ on duplicates you don’t need.

Find what you need easily, instead of frantically searching.

No more panicking about guests coming over at short notice.


decluttering 101

In addition to assessing your space and creating a personal plan, we'll focus on mindset shifts, decision-making skills, and what to do with the things you will be decluttering in the weeks ahead.

living spaces

We'll start the decluttering process in the heart of your home, clearing the most lived-in spaces of surface clutter to make a bigger impact, right from the start, and get you comfortable with the process.

personal spaces

Next, we'll turn our focus to the private, personal spaces in your home, including the master bedroom and master closet, as well as your wardrobe and collections.

kids' spaces

When the decision-making and process becomes more familiar mid-program, we'll shift our attention to your kids' rooms and their clothing, toys, gear, and documents. We will take care to balance giving your kids a voice in the process, while also editing the sheer amount of stuff that kids can accumulate over time.

work spaces

With so many working (and attending school!) virtually from home right now, workspaces have become integral to the functionality of our homes. We'll tackle the office, kids' school work stations, and any hobby spaces during this time.

special cases

Some clutter categories (and situations) just take a little extra care and grace. We'll talk about some of them, including living in a small home, dealing with sentimental items, and sorting through the belongings of a deceased loved one while grieving.

What is included in the program:

Each week during the 12-week program we will cover training for decluttering a specific area of your home and brainstorming to overcome specific challenges you’ve encountered.

You will have accountability and support throughout the entire process.

You will receive 12 guided decluttering assignments spread out over the weeks of the program to take the guesswork out of the process.

You will learn what to focus on and how to tackle projects, plus receive tips for success along the way.

Gain access to a student-only Facebook group for ongoing discussion throughout the program.

Ask questions, brainstorm together, and connect with me in between coaching calls.

If a topic comes up during coaching that lends itself to a quick video tutorial, I’ll create one and share it with all students.

Examples of what to expect could be: how to sort your stuff, how to deal with overwhelm, or productivity hacks. 

“Should I keep this?”

Printable decision prompts to help you make quick decisions when you are unsure of what to keep or declutter.

“What do I do with this now?”

A guide outlining your options for the methods of letting go of the things that you have decluttered.

Who doesn't love a bonus?


We’ll work together to evaluate your space, your challenges, and your lifestyle so you can have a solid plan of attack to work through when we’re done.

Sometimes, you just get a little stuck and need to brainstorm ways out of a particular challenge in your decluttering and organizing process. Consider this phone-a-friend lifeline.


You’ll have full access to my tidy habits mini-course, The Rule of 3. Master the 3 most essential home routines so your home can stay “clean enough” while you focus on decluttering and organizing.


This is a 12-week program. 

How long it takes for the actual decluttering each week depends on your circumstances and availability. In general, expect to invest 2-4 hours each week to do the work required to declutter your home.

In general, yes. But it is dependent on whether or not you are able to complete the decluttering tasks as they are assigned. (Good intentions alone will not declutter a home.)

Mileage may vary, of course. One person’s hot mess is another person’s tidy. However, if the spaces and zones covered in the training are fully decluttered, they will be much more livable for you.

You don’t have to. But it’s definitely recommended.

The sense of community is much stronger when we can see each other’s faces. Plus, you can show me any problem spots in your home and I can give instant feedback (or come up with a plan after the call).

Finally, all calls are a 100% judgment-free, come-as-you-are zone.

(In other words, don’t worry about doing your makeup, or hair, or cleaning your house, or keeping your kids or pets or other household members quiet in order to participate.)

It is expected that all members of the community respect that each person is at a different place in their own decluttering journey. No shaming, making fun, disparaging, or invasion of privacy will be tolerated. 

It’s recommended that you attend as many of the weekly coaching calls as you can, because that’s to your advantage.

However, life happens. I totally get that! All Zoom call coaching call trainings will be recorded and uploaded to the Declutter at Home training vault so students can watch again as-needed.

(The recording feature will be paused if students wish for additional privacy while discussing their particular situation off-the-record during a call.)

The program is currently being sold at its debut price of $197. This option is the best value.

Alternatively, you may select a 3-month payment plan of $69/month.

If you’d like to get a taste of what it is like to work with me before investing in this program, I’d invite you to join my free Clutter Fighters group in Facebook, where we talk all things decluttering and run decluttering challenges.

You can also DM me through my Instagram account, @thismodernmess.

What others are saying about working with me ...

I'm not sure that I really listened to all of this before but it sunk in this time. I'm learning to recognize my progress instead of focusing on my expectations. Thank you for your encouragement. It is helping me to get past some previous obstacles. I hope everyone achieves their own personal goals!
I have become more minimalist which was really my goal with the process. I can tell my mindset has changed.
Why are you doing this to me? These challenges are like daggers through my heart, hitting the nail right on the head! I confess...I’m a piler! 🙈

Hey! I'm Andrea!

I’m a recovering messy (turned decluttering, organizing, and simplifying enthusiast).

In other words, I’m not a neat freak by nature and you don’t have to be, either, to get results from this program.

My blog, This Modern Mess, its Facebook group, the Clutter Fighters, and the organizing and decluttering services I offer are the result of overcoming years of chronic disorganization. 

Basically, I “hacked” the system until it worked for my brain and busy life.

So now everything I do in my own life is first put through the filter of “does this simplify things?” Everything we do in this 12-week coaching program is also meant to make life simpler for you, as well. 

Will YOU be the next one to say yes to a decluttering your home to simplify your life?

Don't wait to break free from clutter.

I can’t wait to work alongside you to find calm in the chaos at last!  

If you have any questions that aren’t answered on this page, please reach out to me at [email protected] and I’d be glad to set up a time we can talk to see if this program is a good fit for you.
