"My passion is to help seniors and those with mobility issues stay in their homes. Dana’s decluttering process works so well with my clients because it is based on the reality that emptying a space of all contents and then sorting is too overwhelming for seniors. Dana’s method is ideal because seniors can stop when tired and there is no pile at the end because every item was dealt with as the senior touched it."

Meet a coach

"When I go into clients' homes and teach them best practices for decluttering on their own, I always teach Dana K White's 'No Mess Decluttering Method.' It is the most efficient system of all that I have tried; it especially makes the most sense for people with young children who will inevitably get interrupted multiple times while doing any kind of house project! Her method is simple, easy to follow, and best of all, it WORKS!"
