How about a little giveaway to kick off 2015? Be sure to read to the end for the giveaway of this great book.
In Clutter Free, (affiliate links) Kathi discusses the Why, What, and How of clutter. Her writing has inspired and motivated me while getting me to think a lot more about my own actions. Kathi is not an organizer, but she has learned how to manage and control the clutter in her home and writes in a way that inspires instead of criticizes.
In a week's time (and four of those days were spent out of town), I've gathered 200 items to be removed from our home using Kathi's three-box, two-bag system. The boxes are "Other Rooms," "Put Back," and "Give Away." The bags are for recycling and trash.
Clutter Free: Quick and Easy Steps to Simplifying Your Space is the perfect combination of practical and motivating. I HIGHLY recommend it (though I'm not quite done). If you are serious about getting rid of your STUFF, this is the right book for you. Kathi writes from her heart so there are some (not a lot) faith elements included.
Once you have the book, I highly recommend you join Kathi's 21-Day Clutter Free Challenge. You won't wait until you finish the book to take advantage of all of Kathi's insight and ideas.
Updated: I have finished the book and continue to sing its praises. Practical. Honest. Motivating.
Be sure to read some of my own practical and simple ideas for cleaning and organizing.
