Do piles of stuff collect in your house over a weekend? Our pro in the know, professional organiser Katja Turner, gives her expert advice on keeping your home space clear



‘Rather than spend too much precious time during your weekend picking up after everyone in your family, keep a large, pretty basket or box handy in the kitchen, lounge or entrance hall. Throw everything that ends up being left lying around into it and on Sunday night do your rounds (or, better yet, delegate this job to someone else in the family!) and drop off shoes, clothes, books, sports gear and any other items in their rightful place.’
