Carefully Sorted is a London-based service set up by Liz Aitken and Julia Durand which is dedicated to helping you organise and declutter your home, your office, your possessions and your collections.


We are non-judgemental and practical and will work at your pace so that the careful sorting we undertake together has lasting benefits.


We offer a wide range of services, from sorting out a single cupboard to working through an entire house. If you think we could help you, please get in touch.

Carefully Sorted grew out of our separate experience of helping friends and family tidy and sort their homes and businesses. We have also helped people downsize, prepare for a move and get their homes ready for selling or renting.

We both have first-hand experience of sorting out our parents’ possessions when they died so we know how difficult it can be to decide what to keep and what to dispose of and we are particularly aware of the sensitivities that follow bereavement. Carefully Sorted is not about minimalism and throwing things away, but about helping you create a pleasant and manageable environment that you enjoy living in.

I enjoyed a long career spanning the voluntary sector, education and financial services and have highly-developed organisation, people and communication skills. These combine perfectly with Julia’s customer service, stock management and display experience to provide our clients with a well-balanced range of qualities.

I am a very practical person and really enjoy working with clients to help them find lasting solutions.

Julia Durand

Because of my many years of experience as a retail manager, I have excellent presentation and visual skills and am used to dealing with people from all walks of life.

As an avid collector of vintage memorabilia, my skills are put to good use in keeping my own collections under control and creatively and imaginatively displayed. This allows me to empathise with other people who might be struggling to maintain a balance between collecting and hoarding. I like to mix my love of being neat, tidy and organised, with artistic flair and creativity. I believe it is important for your environment to reflect your personality.
