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.

Love the Home you're In!

Day 85 of 100

You know the song, that goes, "If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with." Well, I think we should apply this advice to our homes. If the home you are in isn't the home of your dreams or the one you thought you would live in, embrace where you are now and show it some love! One way you can do this is by decluttering. It is amazing the transformation that occurs when you get all the excess clutter out of the way and allow what is special and precious to shine. Decluttering cost nothing and can transform any space.

Have you ever prepared to sell your home and worked to get it all fixed up and looking its best? Then, you step back and ask yourself, "Why are we moving? This is a great house! I would want to buy this house!" That is what decluttering can do! It can help you fall in love with your home all over again!

So, pick a room that you don't like being in and figure out what needs to go. It is the first step to making it into a room you will love!

  1. When Patrick and I were selling our house in NC, we started by following the advice of all the HGTV shows and decluttered, big time!! We actually rented a pod and packed it full of things to clean out the house. It's amazing how much we didn't miss that container full of "necessities" and the house looked absolutely amazing. We did get to enjoy our newly found space for a couple of months and now that we're in our new house, I'm hoping that we will declutter as we unpack. So far, I've made a stack of about 100 items that I've decided I can live without:-) Of course, we've still got a long way to go!!
