Have you ever had company arriving and you run around frantically trying to clean and declutter and organize? It used to take me AT LEAST a day to get ready for guests. But since learning to live more organized and to be more intentional about having less, buying less, and decluttering, I can have guests come on short notice! I wanna share some thoughts about that, how decluttering brings peace, what your stuff is telling you, and how I look at my stuff to help me get rid of excess

  1. I know this is going to be a “snarky” comment but I just can’t help myself. This video is about things you don’t need and Monday’s video is about what you must buy from Amazon’s prime days. What ?

  2. I have been watching your videos almost everyday and multiple videos a day!
    I'm working on decluttering, purging, organizing, cleaning etc. I love all your reasoning, but what do you for items that you have inherited from a very important family member that passed. I have quit a bunch of items from when my grams passed away 1.5 yrs ago, so how do I deal with that especially when these items are very sentimental and remind me of great memories? I do have some items displayed, but what do I do with the rest? Put it in a bin and store it away?
    Thanks u so much!
    Oh also I wanted to thank you for recommending cook unity!!!! My hubby and I take turns for who's night it is to make dinner, so I placed 2 orders this last week, which I just received 2 days ago, and now I have meals for every night it's my turn for dinner!!! No more buying fast food because I'm too exhausted to cook or don't want to go to the grocery store etc, now all I have to do is pop it in the oven for 15 mins and voila!!! And even if I'm not home on the night that it's my turn, I can even have my 16yr old son pop them in the oven without messing up the recipe lol.

  3. I have so much stuff that I can't hear the individual voices.
    Except for the laundry: as soon as it comes out of the dryer, it gets put away. Mostly because cats love warm laundry. 😸😸😸

  4. Love your videos. Working on finalizing kitchen organization inch by inch. Two lazy susan’s and it’s a wrap. Loving the freeing feeling.

  5. I’m having a hard time getting rid of my sons books that he doesn’t read anymore. These are all of the books that I read to him so they hold memories for me. However, he’s too mature for these books now. I spent a lot of time building complete collections so another reason it’s hard to part with them.

  6. Yea I'm not a minimalist & never will be my 2 issue are my scrapbook supplies & laundry I've decided I'm going to go threw my closet & get rid of most of my clothes not Shure how to handle my craft supplies yet

  7. Just put "goodbye, things" on hold at my local library. Looking forward to it coming in!

  8. Your opening remarks about company visiting is SO ME, unfortunately. I'm working on it but it's a BIG task. I liked the analogy about an employee. If I'm not wearing it or using it but it's taking up space that would be better occupied by things I DO wear and use them in paying it too much!

  9. I love this video!!! It's a nice concept to figure out what things are telling you. My stuff tells me negative things like "you haven't done this yet, what makes you think you're even gonna work on me?". Like negative negative stuff. (ps I'm not losing my mind, just have negative voices, that tell me I should be better. I'm 52 and I'm not crazy lol

  10. I’ve been using the farmers dog for over a year now for my Golden retriever and we love it! He loves it, too!

  11. What is my clutter telling me…
    1) My dolls are spoiled.
    2) My dolls need to learn to clean up after themselves.
    3) I’m a creative, artsy person who likes trying different mediums and makings different kinds of arts and crafts.

  12. I'm in the process of moving and I'm looking at everything asking why in the world do I have this and why am I keeping it. Especially with kids they accumulate so much stuff in only a year. Watching your videos have given me the motivation to decludder so much and it feels so good to let go.

  13. What brand of magnet tiles do you like? I want to get some for my son but can't decide on all the different brands out there 😅

  14. Olive is so sweet 😍. I procrastinate a lot. You are right, your stuff can make you feel pretty bad about yourself.

  15. "And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life.
    And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.
    The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 
    Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire." (REVELATION 20:12-15 NKJV)

    Today, while you are still alive and able, may you repent from your sins, believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that JESUS CHRIST is your Lord and Savior, so that through Him, your name will be written in the Book of Life.

    "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever BELIEVES in Him 
    should not perish but have everlasting life.
    For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved." (JOHN 3:16-17 NKJV)

    By God's GRACE, the gift of Salvation and Eternal Life is available to all. You can RECEIVE it. You can REJECT it. May you choose wisely. ✝️

  16. A great practical video,so true about all the objects in the home calling for your attention which destroys the peace in the home and prevents the basic jobs of a clean floor and countertop being sanitized which causes more stress.While you’re attending all “the stuff”your baby is crying in a playpen etc clearing all the toys on floor.You Lose out on precious time with your children which is more stress!You always look beautiful but I’ve noticed you look even more refreshed and beautiful in this video….i think it’s because less stuff definitely less stress….it shows even on a persons face.keep up the great work and videos!thanks 💐

  17. It is aggravating for someone to tell me what I do and do not need. What if I said that you do have clutter, you just waste your time making YouTube videos when you should be taking care of your home and family? Don’t you think that people should decide what they do or do not need and not just listen to someone they don’t even know?

  18. i love the dog. dogs hate packaged dead, diseased, decayed food that humans can't eat.
    I have had 20 dogs I am 73 they love the fruits, veggies, proteins, eggs broccoli rabe, whatever I eat they have eaten!

  19. Love this video and love the idea of things taking up real estate in the draw. Thanks

  20. So what's you're saying is we need to fire some non-productive employees? Got it!
