I had SO much fun at the hangout this morning. I’m still learning and may try some different things next week so I can respond to questions in real time, but it was fun to actually hangout with people and talk decluttering.
I’m embedding the hangout here so you can watch. If you can’t see it, go straight to the event page and watch it there. I hope you’ll join me next Thursday at 10 a.m. Central.--Nony
Oh, your “It’s okay to be sad” post really hit home for me. My children are grown and I believe I have every Mother’s Day card, little note, baby clothes, anything that they touched stored in bins, boxes, drawers, attic, basement, bedrooms, etc. ! In addition, I have stuff from family members that I felt disloyal throwing out. BUT today I was empowered to keep only the items that really, really meant something to me. Thank you for giving me permission to “be sad” (and I was) while throwing stuff out that I really did not need to keep! 🙂
I loved listening to this hangout…so glad you embedded it for the email subscribers. I definately have a problem with clothes too. In fact just this week my husband asked me (referring to clothes) if ”Nony the slob would approve of my system”…lol. I thought, ” not only would she approve, she probably has the same system!”. Anyway let me just say Im working on getting rid of extra clothes. One thing I would have added to this hangout if I had attended would be perfectionism. It sounds so crazy to me cuz I’m such a slob, but I had someone once tell me I’m really a perfectionist and that’s why I’m like this. So if I dont have time to do a project the way I want, I just won’t do it and will let everything go, rather than at least making things a little better. I don’t want to just pick up the kids clothes all over the floor and put them in a basket til I have time to deal with them…I will let them sit til I can declutter and organize them in drawers and the whole 9 yards. So yeah my youngest has clothes everywhere at the moment.
I’ve not totally caught up with all your posts yet, but I sincerely hope the video type thing doesn’t become a typical day……I can’t watch or hear them on my laptop (I know….technologically impaired) but honestly, reading is just my thing…..I’ve gained much from your posts…and hope to continue (without having to watch things)…..

Notice that there are three posts that went up on that day, specifically so that it would not be the only post of the day.
Thanks so much…..you will never know what a lifesaver your blog has been….and I didn’t catch the other posts at first.
