My name is Simone and I am the owner of Tipone.
I was born and raised in Denmark and I moved to Australia in 2016, so please excuse my (sometimes) incorrect grammar and my very European accent. I now live in Perth with my partner, Lee, and our cat, Maggie.
My organisation and storage addiction started back in 2017 when I first moved to Perth with Lee. I felt uncomfortable moving to a new city (I mean; I was only meant to stay for 6 months and then I ended up moving here), I knew no one apart Lee and all my friends and family were in Denmark(13,885km away).
I was scared and confused about what I was doing with my life and my anxiety and depression (which has always been a big part of my life) got worse and worse for every day that passed by.
Now that I couldn’t control my head I started to try and control what I could control (this is advice I finally listened too after I don’t know how many hours with my psychologist). I started organising our home and I felt more calm and like I had things under control, although I still had no idea what I was doing with my life.
Since 2017 I have turned a house into a home. A place where I feel happy and calm every time I walk in. A place where I can relax and where I don’t worry and stress as much as I used to.
Organising our home has helped me feel better, but it is NOT a cure for either depression or anxiety. It’s a helping hand and I am very passionate about helping others who might feel stressed, anxious or depressed experience this calm feeling every time they walk into their home.
Thanks for reading and I hope I have motivated you to start your decluttering and organisation journey,
Simone | Tipone
