An Uncluttered Christmas with Suzy Kell 


A minimalist Christmas 

As all over the world folk sit pondering the aftermath of the Christmas chaos : we got to chatting with Susie Kell the gentle declutterer about how we could wave a marie Kondo style magic wand over next years Christmas.

We discuss the idea of decluttering Christmas traditions and obligations, zero waste Christmas wrapping, how to put up decorations without all the plastic and foil wrecking your head ( and the planet) and how to approach gift giving without buying more ‘stuff’ .
