Mark Brunetz Offers Decluttering Tips to Seigles Fans

In February, Seigles was proud to host a Design and Dine event with celebrity designer Mark Brunetz. Brunetz presented “Clear the Clutter,” offering tips about how to organize and declutter your home.

Robin Seigle, who attended the event, offered her summary of Brunetz’s main points: “He spoke about being emotionally attached to stuff and how you need to separate yourself from it,” said Robin. A few of Brunetz’s memorable tips:

  1. When de-cluttering have 3 piles: Toss, Donate/Sell, or Keep.
  2. Keep one or two things that are extra special to you, but get rid of the rest. i.e. if you are saving kids artwork for grade school, select a few favorites and display them. What good are they sitting in the back of a closet?
  3. 80% of the stuff in most households today doesn’t get used. Organizing things on a vertical space makes it much easier to find! i.e. Put smaller containers on a wall in front of your desk or work space so it is at your fingertips!

One motivating story that Robin recalls: “He talked about the books he kept in boxes. He drove them cross country each time he moved and one day realized he never read any of them and probably never would. He got rid of them the next day!”

Here are a few photos from the great, standing room only event:
