Hi! I’m Rosie, The Tidy Coo.
I’m a Platinum KonMari Certified Consultant and member of APDO, but I haven't always been a Professional Organiser: initially I was a Cytogeneticist and then a teacher. My journey into Professional Organising started back when regular international moves forced me to declutter to fit all our belongings into shipping containers. However, we always arrived at our new destination with things we didn't need. Around 2014 I read Marie Kondo's first book, "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up", and change my life it did! Applying this to my own belongings meant that the next move went far more smoothly, particularly the unpacking.
Having helped friends and family to get organised too, I realised that this was something that I loved to do and that many people needed. So in April 2018 I attended the first European Seminar given by Marie Kondo and set up my business, The Tidy Coo, shortly after. I am now a Platinum Level Certified Consultant and I love my job!
I live in Aberdeenshire with my husband, our 4 Home-educated children, our 8 ponies, 5 dogs, 3 cats, 2 bunnies, poultry and fish that all Spark Joy. Clearly I am not a minimalist!
My favourite saying, when asked how I fit my business, my children’s education and my animals/training into my life (I represented Scotland in Endurance riding in 2019) is,
“I am not Organised because I have Time,
I have Time because I am Organised.”
I’d love to help you have more time to do the things that you enjoy.
