My favorite quote:
“Keep what is worth keeping and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away."

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.

Isn't it funny how the music of our youth can transport us back in time? You can almost smell the gym of your high school, when you hear a song from your Senior Prom.
Nostalgia is one reason it is hard to let of some items. We attach memories to “things” and give “stuff” power, based on this. A dried up, molded corsage from 1985 isn't going to make a memory of a special night, any more special.
If you hold onto everything that reminds you of the past, where will your future go? What about your present?
Keep the memories, let go of the excess! If there is something you really want to keep, give it a place of importance in your home.
Are you holding on to stuff because it reminds you of a happy time? Let go, embrace today and create happy times NOW!
