Decluttering challenge

TWO Dumfries businesses are running a decluttering challenge, to raise money for DEC’s Ukraine appeal.

Eileen Adamson, money coach and owner of Your Money Sorted, and Mel Carruthers, professional organiser and owner of decluttering business More Organised, have teamed up to help raise funds for the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.

Their challenge, run through the Your Money Sorted Facebook group, will help participants to declutter, sell their items and then donate the money raised to the DEC campaign.

Eileen said: “I wanted to do something to help people affected by the Ukraine crisis, and came up with the idea.

“We’re aiming to raise £10,000 for the DEC Ukraine appeal, and I know that my brilliant group members are up for the challenge!”

Mel added: “I jumped at the chance to help Eileen with the workshop! I’m looking forward to helping people declutter their homes this spring, whilst raising funds for Ukraine.”

The seven-day decluttering challenge will help participants to declutter efficiently, overcome common blocks to decluttering, choose the right platform to sell their unwanted items, and maximise the sale price of those items. With two workshops, social media posts, a challenge workbook, and hints and tips through the week, it brings Eileen’s financial expertise together with Mel’s decluttering advice.

To join in, and raise money whilst decluttering your home this spring cleaning season, visit or join the Your Money Sorted group on Facebook. The challenge starts on March 31 and runs for a week.
