Your Clutter Free Journey
Take the first step on your Clutter Free Journey to living a beautiful, clutter free life! On your journey, you will examine your relationship with the stuff in your life and it's impact on your overall well-being. You will learn to make choices over what you invite into your home. The way we feel inside is directly reflected in our living spaces. In turn, our living spaces affect our internal well-being. By making small, steady changes in our living environment, we can change how we feel inside and make our homes a reflection of what is important to us.

Eat Dessert First, aka: Don't Save The Best For Last
I remember very distinctly giving my maternal grandmother, whom I adored, a pair of silk Pajamas for Christmas one year. I thought they were just her color and would be so comfortable. She loved them. In fact, so much so, that she put them away to wear “in case she had to go to the hospital”. She had several items in this category. What is so sad is that I don't know if she ever wore them.
Are you using dishes that you really don't like, everyday, because you are saving the ones you love? What are you saving them for? What is more special than your family? If you love something, use it, wear it, play it, delight in it! Let the rest go, with love.
What do you love that you are “saving” for later? What do you need to declutter so you can make room for this?
