Through Millie’s programme the Tenant was empowered to take action and create a functional and comfortable home, that worked for them. Milli’s caring, practical and realistic approach, coupled with her ability to engage and empower others to achieve long term sustainable outcomes was inspiring.”
Liesl, Tenancy Officer
“It has been an absolute pleasure working with Keep or Not to Keep over the last few years. Our communities throughout South Australia have been in need of this hands on approach to clutter management for many years. The difference in many of our tenants lives inside and outside of their homes has been truly life changing and empowering.
Keep or Not to Keep also inspires us to think outside of the conventional Western World of consumerism and the phrase “If you put your happiness in temporary things, your happiness will be temporary’ (Nick Vujicic) encapsulates the concept of Keep or Not to Keep.”
Joanne Wilson, Junction Australia
“I worked with Amelia who was engaged to assist with man living with a disability with a reluctant rehousing move after 26 years of living in his home. He had an accumulation of many items that were precious to him and this was an extremely difficult process to move for him. Amelia – ‘Milli’ supported him and was most empathetic to his feelings about his move. She had a system and supported support staff to assist in the sorting – to keep / what not the keep, that was easy to follow. She also assisted with the practical side of sorting items. It was a great outcome with many unused items being donated or discarded thoughtfully. Milli was a pleasure to work with by us all – support staff and the client. I was so impressed by her understanding of how difficult a process this can be for many people in sorting through possessions and would not hesitate to recommend her as being the right person for the job of what to keep / not keep.”
Julie-Anne Zacharia Registered Nurse.
“When faced with the growing problem of hoarding amongst our tenants, we needed to work with someone who showed genuine empathy towards the museum of self-collected over a lifetime. Milli’s personal approach ensured that each person was treated with respect and dignity and was taken on a journey to declutter and take back long lasting change and control, to their representation of self through belongings.”
Megan, Manager of Development and Asset Strategy
“I have had the privilege of working with Milli through To Keep Or Not To Keep and have found her team approach to holistic outcomes for clients refreshing. She is a delight to work with and her passion for making a difference in people’s lives is inspiring.”

Her education-based approach to tackling the difficult issue of clutter management and hoarding is refreshing. Her ON Small Business Grant application showed that Amelia is invested in her work and in helping people, whilst also maintaining a safe workplace environment for herself.
