Today Extra’s Richard Wilkins is stunned after his ‘dreaded storage shed’ decluttered and organised

See Dickie’s prized possessions! Today Extra host Richard Wilkins takes fans into the storage shed inside his $5 million Sydney home as it is decluttered and organised

His career in the public eye spans over four decades.

So it’s not surprise Richard Wilkins has accumulated many bits of memorabilia along the way.

And on Wednesday, Today Extra audiences got a glimpse of the room where the 66-year-old entertainment editor keeps his mementos as he decluttered and reorganised the space.

In awe! Today Extra host Richard Wilkins was left stunned after his ‘dreaded storage shed’ was decluttered and organised

In the segment, he explained that fixing up his ‘dreaded storage shed’ was something he had wanted to do. 

After sharing a photo of the littered room on Instagram back in April, reporter Britt Cohen put her hand up to help him out. 

Dickie, who has lived in his $5million home in Cremorne on Sydney’s North Shore for the past 16 years, explained in the segment that the space is used to store their Christmas decorations, gardening equipment, as well as old VHS and cassette tapes.

Other items included framed portraits and photographs of himself, his children’s school art and toys, sporting equipment, tools and paint tins.

He and Britt got to work on sorting out his items, along with the help of his model son Christian and organisation expert Anita Birges.

Anita had the team sort out each of the belongings into different categories and to figure out what items needed to be thrown out, given away or kept.

She then had the item kept stored in plastic containers that were labelled, and also had shelving units installed in the room.

After hours of clearing out the space and organising, Dickie was shocked to see the incredible results. 

‘Heavens to Betsy. It really was a trip down memory lane,’ he said after the clean up.

After the segment Dickie told co-host Belinda Russell: ‘It took us a whole day to go through stuff, Christian and I. But I really appreciated it. 

‘And I feel decluttered. It feels better to get rid of all that stuff. We gave a lot of stuff away too,’ he added.
