About Me - Melbourne Professional Organiser
Julie whiting, professional organiser
Company founder and Melbourne Professional Organiser Julie Whiting spent her earlier years working in Japan as a graphic designer and copywriter.
Japanese culture and industry instilled in her a love of organisation and minimalism.
Fast forward some decades, and Julie lived in a small caravan for a year travelling across Australia with her young family. This required very calculated, organised use of space.
To get to that stage meant a massive downsize, and a lot of time spent rehoming goods in a thoughtful way to minimise waste and landfill.
Julie founded The Decluttering Co in 2018 to address the growing problem of people having more stuff, more chaos and less time. She was inspired by the likes of Marie Kondo and Australia’s The Art of Decluttering to realise her passion for putting things in order.
Apart from being a Professional Organiser, Julie is a mum and a scout leader. This means plenty of experience with kids and teens, as well as a current Working With Children Check and a Police Check.
She still dabbles in design and copywriting. Julie enjoys the parallels between clear communication and the decluttered, intentional living facilitated by being a Professional Organiser.
“The ongoing job of creating welcoming but highly organised living spaces is not dissimilar to making a website or brochure” she says. “It’s about cutting through the clutter, finding what’s important and shining a light on it.”
For you this could be more family time, a craft corner or a beautiful clear space for working or watching movies.
We all accumulate stuff. It’s normal. Decluttering is an ongoing process. It requires re-evaluating your belongings regularly with your changing needs in mind. But sometimes chaos gets the upper hand and needs a discerning eye to gain control.
Is this the case with you?
Julie Whiting is a Melbourne Professional Organiser who loves decluttering and organising, yet hates waste. She wants to help you live in a more intentional space. No judgement, just freedom from chaos and clutter.
