I would say NO. That is what good friends are for.

I was on a flylady group a while back, met a friend there who was also my friend from another club I was in...(actually two friends...one from TOPS and one from LLL).

My friend came over and we went through my whole kitchen together when I only had two kiddos. We got a lot done actually! I also spent about 4 hours with another friend...we got rid of/recycled about 7 trash bags of stuff (her issue was mainly papers we recycled what we could, and the rest was trashed). I was kind of there to give her a nudge when she was sort of wavering/on the fence. She really needed it. I needed it too...for another reason as well...with the kitchen I had my two DD's who needed entertaining LOL.

I'm fine actually with decluttering. I think I do a really good, objective job on myself. I could definitely be a personal organizer if I had the time since I've helped people with it before. But it *is* super frustrating to deal with someone who is not ready to purge. Been there, done that with my mom. SUPER frustrating!

Perpetually breastfeeding or pregnant ENFP mom to a lot of kids...wife to a midwestern nice guy...living in tropical paradise...pink cats and homebirths rock!
