A BUSY mum from Stroud has started a decluttering business to help customers free-up valuable space in their homes.

Charlotte Keen found that juggling parenting, a full-time job and running a three-bedroom house felt like a constant challenge.

Then she began reading up on minimalism and decluttering.

“It transformed my family life,” she said.

“Our home is now a more pleasant place to be.

“I no longer shop for the sake of it.

"I’m mindful about the things I bring into the home, which saves money and I create less waste.”

Her business Neatly Cotswolds has had great reviews.

“It’s therapeutic to face jobs you’ve been putting off for years,” she said.
