‘A CORNER JUST FOR ME!'
The second finalist in our Declutter Competition in collaboration with Gumtree is Cheryl Button; with help from our experts, she has created a functional workspace where she can pursue her hobby.

In the 30 years that Cheryl and Trevor Button have lived in their house in Bantry Bay in Cape Town, they’ve accumulated many hand-medown items of furniture, trinkets, kitchenware, clothing, books and toys.

“There was just too much of everything!” exclaims Cheryl. “We had to create space by getting rid of our mismatched furniture and various pieces passed on by friends and family. I wanted to be free of all this clutter and keep only the items that we use and that hold meaning for our family.”

With the help of our declutter experts Carin Smith and Jani Augustyn-Goussard, Cheryl identified a spot in the corner of her living room in which to create a multipurpose space where she can both sew and work on her computer.
