Becoming Clutter-Free
One Week at a Time

~ listed chronologically, as posted ~

Becoming clutter free isn't about tossing everything. Rather, it is cherry picking the very best for yourself and getting rid of the extraneous. If you're at all like me I promise you'll love the freedom from minutia far more than you can imagine at present.

This is the inaugural article:  Getting Started

Inspiration: One of the reasons things can be hard to part with is that we invest them with value they don't really have. We bought things for who we wanted to be so we mourn not being that person now. If you can concentrate instead on who you are becoming it will help. Linda Sand.
