2016 In Review – What My Year Really Looked Like

2016 In Review - Helen Butler, Clutter Rescue
What a year 2016 has been. I am sure when we look back in years to come and reflect on this year we will see how much growth, how much change, how much getting on the right path this year gifted us. But right about now, if you’re like me, you’re pretty exhausted and would love to sleep for a month!

This year has been one of massive growth for me, both personally and professionally. This is my year in quick review!

An Update + Would You Like To Join My Tribe?

This is such a busy time of year. So much is happening – kids are on school holidays, the shops are packed with Christmas shoppers, more people are on the roads heading away for holidays.

I love this time of year – but at the same time it isn’t my favourite time of year. I love that our routine is a little less crazy now Mr 10 is on school holidays but I am also really tired from a busy year and want to get some well deserved rest! Maybe you feel the same?

I thought I’d take time in this post to share with you a few things in the run up to the end of the year that you may be interested in.

Christmas And Summer Organising Help

I can’t believe Christmas is less than a month away. We’ve been busy with end of school year events and I literally haven’t thought about Christmas gifts at all! I really need to follow some of my own advice and start to get organised, if for no other reason than to feel more calm and less chaotic!

I wanted to share some resources with you to help you get organised this Christmas and Summer. I hope they’re helpful for you.

What’s Your Mum Organising Style? – Facebook Chat

A few weeks ago I did a Facebook Live video on the Clutter Rescue Facebook page, sharing more about my Mum Organising Styles.

I’ve written about the Mum Organising Styles in my book but if you’re like me you’re more of a visual learner, so sharing this message through video felt right – and it was stacks of fun!

There are five Mum Organising Styles.

They are the:

  • Focused Mum
  • Supportive Mum
  • Dynamic Mum
  • Overloaded Mum
  • Exhausted Mum

In this video I share how each specific Mum’s organising style is different and how you can move forward with where you are right now no matter what your Style is.

It’s My Birthday Sale!

I’m sorry, the sale is now over.

If you’d like to know more about my books please click here.


October is my birthday month!

This year isn’t one of the big milestones for me – I’m just another year older and, to be honest, I’m super happy about it! I feel more in flow, more on purpose than I have in a long time!

I love giving birthday gifts – and receiving them of course!

So this year I’d like to give you a gift, the opportunity to buy one of my books and get the other one for free.

This is how my birthday book sale works.

The BUSY to Balanced Approach published on ‘Balance By Deborah Hutton’

Last week was quite a surreal week for me. Why? Because I was published on Deborah Hutton’s website, Balance By Deborah Hutton, seven times!

How did this happen?

Some of you may have heard about a little book I wrote and published earlier this year called Paperwork Is Not Your Problem: A Busy Mum’s Guide to Moving From BUSY to Balanced. After seeing Deb’s program Balance on a Virgin flight recently I decided to send her a copy of my book as I thought she might resonate with my message and approach around balance.

With friends connecting me to Deb’s PA, and me contacting her to ask for Deb’s postal address (after explaining why I wanted it!), I sent a copy of my book through the mail with a hand written note.

I had no expectations from Deb at all – I just wanted to share my message with her – so I was completely blown away when one Friday afternoon late I received an email from Deb, thanking me for my gift and asking me if I’d like to write some articles for her.

And seven articles later, they’re all published on the Balance By Deborah Hutton website.


I thought, to make it easier for you, that I would share the links to them all here. I truly hope you enjoy them – I’d love to hear what you think after you’ve read them!

Join Me For 31 Days Of Sanctuary

31 Days Of Sanctuary #31DaysOfSanctuary

Last week was a tough week for me. It took all of my strength to keep going, to do the normal mundane things it takes to keep a household running.

I know you’ve been there too. Whether it was last week, last year or twenty years ago, I know you’ve had those weeks where you just wanted to run and hide and tell the world to piss off.

It’s easy to get stuck in this malaise. And to be honest I nearly did. But I did what I always do when I get thrown a serious curve ball – I go inside, to heal, to protect, to discover what it is I really need to do to move forward.

And so it was when I came out of my haze that I realised I needed 31 Days Of Sanctuary. And I thought, just maybe, you could do with it too.

You see, over on Helen Joy Butler, I live, eat, breathe the concept of sanctuary. That doesn’t mean I live in a day spa with everything running smoothly (last week was certainly a testament to that). It means that I believe if I focus on sanctuary and everything it means to me – love, connection, compassion, joy – then my focus will go where it needs to go. I will be in flow, I will have a greater knowledge of what the hell it is I’m meant to do in this life, and the extraneous and irrelevant will fall away, leaving me with the people, direction and focus I need to follow.

So that’s why 31 Days Of Sanctuary came about.

And I’d love you to join me.

Would you like to join me on a webinar next week?

Helen Joy Butler - Clutter Rescue - Alexandra Stoddard Sanctuary quote

I’ve been thinking a lot about the concept of sanctuary.

Every time I think about it, speak with other people about it, read/see/find something that gives me a feeling of sanctuary, I feel instantly more calm, more grounded, more connected.

It’s like the idea of sanctuary is flowing through me (or at least, part of me!) and every day I strive to bring sanctuary into my life.

What does that look like for me?
