  1. We’ve already decluttered but I’m always looking for inspiration to get rid of things on that “silent to do list”. ????

  2. This series is exactly what I need right now – thank you so much <3 (and you look so really really beautiful here!)

  3. Thank you Dawn! I LOVE your videos! I can relate to everything you say! I have learned so much. I watch your videos over and over while I clean and declutter. I headed to the donation center to drop off several bags and boxes; came home and there was a new video! ❤

  4. Did I see Dawn put the chopper back in her cabinet after saying they don't use it?

  5. Dawn, I am using onion method too. It is less rolling on my emotional and mental health.

  6. Thank you! I got so much value out of this video. The practical steps and solid info was very helpful. I find that lately, some of my other favourite YouTubers have been doing what they're doing for so long that they seem to be going through the motions (trends) with their content, seemingly forgetting why people followed in the first place! I get it, this is their livelihood but thank you for going back to basics and creating content for this life-long clutterbug who appreciates the motivation, inspiration and easy steps to declutter. ????

  7. Dawn i have learned so much from you and i totally thank you from the bottom of my heart. It has gotten so much easier to let stuff go . Before i started this journey i would have never let my fabric and so much more go. It feels so good. I love you and your Family. One day i would love to meet you.

  8. I’ve been on a regular bing watch of Dawn’s videos and I’m thankful for a new one to continue to help with the decluttering of my home. Thank you Dawn!

  9. Thanks Dawn you are such a positive influence. We appreciate your hard work. I've read the books you recommend too. You're one of my best friends ???? God bless you!!!

  10. Just declutter a little yesterday and straightened today. Just five minutes here and there really change a space.

  11. So funny how people use different items. I don’t think I’ve ever used my bunt pan but I use my food chopper a couple times a week

  12. I would be interested to hear what you have to say about books that you're deciding what to keep for grandkids. We're a big book family & prefer hard copies. Plus, good children's/YA books are very lacking these days. Lots of junk out there!

  13. I had one of those “hide everything in the master bedroom because company is coming” weekends! Ahh ???? The house looks great but my bedroom is chaos! Ahhh Love you Dawn! Thanks for all your help!

  14. I have started decluttering again. It feels good to get stuff out of our house. I enjoy your videos.
