I originally found Alison through the recommendation of KC Davis on TikTok. This course has been such a great way to learn and review the foundational concepts of Alison’s work. I’m incredibly grateful to have the classes. She explains things in a way that validates the kind of simplicity you hope for in an organizational system. I am astounded by how much I’ve been able to get through in my house because of Alison. I’m just incredibly grateful.

This course was fab, I've already recommended it to a few family members in need of some organisational skills. The structure is really easy to follow and the bite size activities at the end of each section were very motivating and easy to complete... My house is working better for me already after the small changes I've made. I learned a lot about what's been getting in my way when tackling daunting tasks and will probably refer back to this course often for a boost of motivation and guidance when I get stuck. Alison is so encouraging and easy to listen to. If you're on the fence I'd recommend investing in yourself and signing up, I've really enjoyed it.

The real-life examples used in the videos especially helped in encouraging me- "if that mess is fixable, so is mine". Alison helped me understand how to break down large tasks into smaller tasks to make the tasks actually seem doable. The encouragement/discouragement meter is a really important concept that I will be using as a tool in future declutters. Content in video and handout format is very easy to print and keep with you. I found this really handy when bringing exercises to real life. Thank you once again, Alison, for some very valuable tools!

I found the course to be very helpful in providing tips and encouragement for organizing my apartment. I especially loved the emphasis on becoming an observer and checking to see if you feel encouraged or discouraged. I've put some new systems in place to organize my home and keep it flowing and functional. I am learning to be patient with myself as this is a gradual process. I'm letting go of things that are just stagnant items taking up space and really asking myself "do I need this?" before purchasing. I have more room to move around and it feels great!

This is an approach that makes you want to get at it, decluttering and organizing your work and living spaces. After listening to only the first part of the course Organizing INSIGHTS, I (almost) instinctively went about organizing a small space, something I could control within only about an hour. Well, this was the exercise that Alison was about to suggest in the next sequence of the course! Subliminal, I tell you...! Alison's messages are filled with kindess, wit and simplicity. Plus, she is often very funny. She proposes a step-by-step approach that helps the trainee "tame the beast". The course and the documents are very well structured, and offer an excellent dosage between theory and practice. The downloads are extremely valuable. Alison offers relevant - and often amusing - concrete examples of how she did it in her own home, which gives us a feeling that yes, it is possible. In short, this course offers a stimulating approach to what would otherwise seem like the last thing you would want to do in your day. It feels very rewarding to think we can win this war, one small battle at a time. I strongly recommend.

I literally have too much stuff. What this course did for me was it gave me the understanding about my emotional and physical relationship with stuff! I never thought of my feelings when trying to deal with piles of things and maybe letting go. I also learned the difference between organizing and decluttering. This was well worth my time. Very easy to listen to the videos and nicely done work sheets. I highly recommend this course.

I’ve been chronically disorganised for a lifetime (45 years). I’ve tried so many methods in the past but none have stuck. This course is helping me understand why that was and what I can do instead. I’m looking at things from a different perspective: I’m able to identify areas in my home that aren’t working, why they aren’t working and I’m finding solutions to try out. Because I’ve actually looked at what’s going on and why the mess and clutter keeps happening, I’m starting to design my space to work for me. I’ve followed Alison for a while on TikTok and Facebook and learnt lots of invaluable tips that have really helped me but this course has taken me to the next level giving me a structure and framework to really start tackling my house in a way that feels sustainable. I’m able to go at own pace and choose which areas to tackle and when. This means I’m feeling a lot less overwhelmed by the enormity and ‘shoulds’ of it all. I’m actually making progress that feels meaningful. I love the design of the course, it’s separated into chunks with both written material and videos which are easy to follow, understand and retain. When I’ve felt stuck I’ve been able to re-watch a video or reflect on what I’ve learnt to give me a kick start into action - It’s like having a cheerleader in my corner! Throughout the course Alison’s kind encouragement (without demands) in the course materials, videos, discussions and comments have given me a positive frame of mind to keep moving forward with a lot of motivation and no pressure. It’s so helpful to see a real home in the videos and know it’s ok for life to happen in my space and that there are ways to make the reset easily manageable. It’s only been a few weeks but already I’m seeing changes both in the organisation of my home and generally (this is the first year ever that I’ve sorted school uniform out early (including name labels!!) - my eldest child is 13). Huge thanks to Alison for all the work she’s put in to creating such a fantastic resource.

I really can’t tell you how helpful this course has been to me! Alison gives just the right amount of encouragement and insight to get you unstuck. When I started this course I felt paralyzed. I had all the time in the world and couldn’t make a move. Definitely stuck on overwhelm! I’ve learned to see my things and my space in a different way. It’s given me permission to let go of some and declutter and keep others. I’m thinking more of how things add value to my life and home whether it be practical or emotional. It’s taken such a weight off me. I still have many areas to declutter but now I have better skills and a better mindset. I never thought my closet would bring me joy but now I get a feeling of well-being when I walk in. You have to start somewhere😁 Thank you Alison! I look forward to your “ Organizing skills course🥰
