Let’s reduce your mental load by decluttering your home, calendar and mind so you can find time!
Clear Clutter Find Time is for women of all ages and stages of life, who want to strip back the physical and emotional ‘stuff’ in their lives and learn the tips and tools to live an intentional life where there is more space in their homes, phones, calendars and minds.
Hi, I’m Bridget Johns, and I’ll be your personal Declutter Coach and Life Organiser throughout this program. I’ve been in your shoes, you can read about it here.
I’ve been stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted trying to live a “perfect” life with a house full of stuff and a calendar full of things others told me I “should” be doing. I burnt myself out. I then used the strategies I share in Clear Clutter Find Time to strip back the physical stuff in our life, that no longer served us, and built a life where we focus on collecting moments not things.
Are you ready to do the same?
Why should you join?
We all have 1,440 minutes in every day, but I bet you feel like there is not enough time to do everything you need to do.
Some of the things on your never-ending to-do list might be:
- Food shopping
- Paying bills
- Keeping children alive
- School drop off/ pick up
- Kids activities
- Volunteer roles
- Making time to see friends
- Couples time
It’s time to get off the hamster wheel that is life and shake things up! You don’t have to keep doing ‘all of the things’, let’s work together to work out what can stay and go!
As a woman, we can feel like we are forever juggling the balls of life. During this course, we will work out which ones you want to keep juggling and which ones you can drop for a few days, weeks, months or forever.
As one of my favourite authors, Tiffany Dufu says let’s drop the ball and “release unrealistic expectations of doing it all and engage others to achieve what matters most to us, deepening our relationships and enriching our lives”.
The Clear Clutter Find Time course is about helping you release unrealistic expectations of doing it all and work out which balls in your life are glass, which are rubber and which ones are should balls.
Don’t just take it from me, here is part participant, Merry’s thoughts on Clear Clutter Find Time; “As a clutterer extraordinaire the course has been life-changing for me. After a lot of attempts to declutter over the last few years I thought I was never going to succeed. But Bridget’s course and very hands-on guidance has given me great success already, and I am enjoying my home and it’s more inviting and relaxing spaces so much more and relishing, at last, sharing these spaces with family and friends. It’s as if a load has been lifted off my mind, and things seem clearer. I highly recommend the course.” – Merry SA
How will it work?
As soon as we start the course, you will gain access to the videos and workbooks on our membership site.
For the eager beavers, you can charge through the content and start decluttering specific areas of your home, using the “how to declutter” videos and templates.
For the slow and steady participants, I will send out weekly emails with reminders to work through each week’s content.
Each week’s content will include a selection of short videos which you can watch at your own leisure. There will also be “how-to” videos showing step by step guides and questions to ask yourself as you declutter spaces in your home.
Private Facebook Group
To keep your motivation high, we have set up a private Facebook group just for members. You can share your progress and ask any extra questions.
Access to Your Own Personal Declutter Coach
Through the Facebook group, you will have access to ask me (Bridget) unlimited questions about how to declutter your spaces, calendar, and mind. You can share pictures of your spaces and I will offer personalised suggestions of how you can declutter that space. Participants that have the most success during this course are the ones that interact, set their decluttering actions for the week and share their progress in the group.
Two Expert Masterclasses
In addition to having unlimited access to me as your Declutter Coach, we are lucky to have two guest experts joining us in two live masterclass sessions to help you clear any roadblocks between you and your decluttered home! Nat and Bridie have helped me personally to simplify my wardrobe and workouts.

Kind words from past participants
“Before I met Bridget my home was cluttered as was my head. My to do list was a mile long and I didn’t know where or how to start. I didn’t spend any time caring for myself and spent far too much time at work. I’ve learnt how to change this and live the best version of me as my mind is CLEAR allowing me the time to do what I want to do as well as what I have to do. Having the accountability has encouraged me to do things I have been putting off for years. Bridget’s support, knowledge and contacts have been invaluable and I have achieved even more than that to do list – I CAN BREATHE AGAIN!” – Karen, SA
“I have really enjoyed being a part of Clear Clutter Find Time. My home and mind are definitely feeling less cluttered. I’m doing less hours of cleaning but my home is tidier than before the challenge. I’m still working on prioritising myself but I’m getting there. I’m feeling much happier about life.” – Tracy, SA
“As a clutterer extraordinaire the course has been life-changing for me. After a lot of attempts to declutter over the last few years I thought I was never going to succeed. But Bridget’s course and very hands-on guidance has given me great success already, and I am enjoying my home and it’s more inviting and relaxing spaces so much more and relishing, at last, sharing these spaces with family and friends. It’s as if a load has been lifted off my mind, and things seem clearer. I highly recommend the course.” – Merry SA
“I have really enjoyed the Be Simply Free decluttering course. She has helped me create systems to make my house of six run a lot smoother, all whilst decluttering to creating more space and time for myself!” – Alicia SA
“Clear Clutter Find Time has given me the motivation, accountability and ideas I needed to bring a greater sense of warmth, peace and organisation to my home. While it can be daunting to share how messy or disorganised your home or life is, Bridget creates a safe online space to be open and honest. It’s a judgement free zone – that encourages you to start from where you’re at, in a way that works for you. The end goal is not instagrammable pantries and home offices but a home and life that reflect your unique values, personality and lifestyle.” Jess, SA
“Such a great course which covers so much content from sorting out what is important to you and your why for change to suggestions on decluttering specific areas of your home. Lots of practical and straight forward advice which easily becomes habit. Bridget is super positive and supportive, giving practical ideas and advice in the course with no judgement.” – Lisa, SA
“I would highly recommend Bridget’s course as its has precise tips and is a great motivator to get your life & home sorted the group keeps you accountable and Bridget is a great support along the way!” – Saskia SA
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is running this course?
That would be me, Bridget Johns. Why learn from me? Well, if you haven’t already, I encourage you to read my journey here. I was a sleep-deprived mum, a perfectionist – paralysed by the tasks that look too big to complete “so why bother starting them?” I burnt the candle at both ends trying to be the best mother and career woman I could be but I was floundering at both.
That was almost seven years ago and I can honestly say doing the things I will explain in this course has made me a more fulfilled and happier person. When I started making the consistent and small steps to put myself first, other areas of my life became simpler, I became calmer and our family life became oh so much better!
What is the time commitment to complete the course?
I get it. You are already busy with so many things to do. The aim of this course is to give you space and permission to get off the hamster wheel that is life and stop, focus and notice a new way of living your life. You will get a short video and how-to strategies to try which should take less than 1% of your day (14.4 minutes) to watch. You can then choose how long you spend decluttering your spaces. I believe in taking baby steps and using 1% of your day to make changes. I will give extra challenges in the Facebook group but these are optional.
Is the course run live?
The course runs over 8 weeks but most of the videos are pre-recorded so you can watch them at any time. If you want to charge ahead do so. For the people that want to go slow and steady, I will be sending a weekly email with a link to view the week by week content to keep you on track.
There will be live elements. We will have two live masterclass sessions and I will also offer two live question and answer Zoom calls to keep you motivated and we will run through decluttering scenarios from people in the group. If you can’t attend any of these sessions live, they will be recorded and you can watch them in your own time.
I don’t use Facebook, can I still benefit from your online course?
Yes. The main element of the course is through our membership site and sent out via email. While you can do the course without Facebook, I HIGHLY recommend joining the private group as this will be the way to ask me additional questions (outside of the live Q&A session) throughout the course.
I will be encouraging everyone (if they are comfortable) to share pictures of their spaces so I can offer suggestions on how to make the space feel cosy and functional. I’ll be encouraging everyone to learn from everyone else too.
Am I worth it?
YES, you are worth it! I know it can seem hard to invest in yourself when there are so many other things pulling on your budget, but you came to this page for a reason. You WANT to make a change and you want support to get there.
The hardest step is to say “I’m worth it”. Are you worth $5.30 a day? That’s what it works out per day to have access to this course and me as your decluttering cheerleader and coach.
Can I do it with a friend?
Yes definitely, It’s always more fun involving friends! It’s also great to chat through ideas and your progress in person with a friend to help keep you accountable so please encourage your friends to sign up too! Maybe you could work as a team to tackle the kids’ toy room together in each other’s homes?
How long will I be able to access the resources of the program?
You will have unlimited access to me (Bridget) via questions in the Facebook group for eight weeks until Tuesday 3rd November 2021. You will also have access to the membership site, videos and templates until 2nd December 2021.
