I have read suggestions in books like ADD Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life about having a clutter buddy to help de-clutter and organize. Gerard Montigny of Succeeding with ADHD also talks about ADHD Cleaning Buddies. As a an ADD Coach and a person with Adult ADD I also think having a buddy to help is a great idea.
Many people with ADD first need to get past the idea that they should be doing things all by themselves. Then after getting past that issue the next issue is being able to trust somebody enough. Sometime it can be challenging for people with ADD to admit they need help. It can also be embarrassing to let somebody else see how bad things may have become too.
The question to ask is: Does the feeling of having a clean organized environment out weigh a few moments of uneasiness or embarrassment?
If the answer is yes: Then maybe it’s time to ask a buddy for help.
