5 Steps to Declutter Your Space When You Have ADHD

I have been hosting live decluttering sessions via Zoom for the last few months for one reason: decluttering can be really freaking hard. My sessions were designed to help give people an “accountability buddy” as well as a fool-proof system for clearing through clutter quickly and easily without getting distracted. This was a method I created based off what works best for me when it comes to cleaning or decluttering my space. Imagine my surprise when I began to realize that this method is actually perfect for people who want to declutter but struggle with ADHD! I’ll share the video that gave me this AHA moment as well as my super simple 5 step plan for helping you declutter with ADHD.

How Do I Make My Spouse Declutter?

One of the top questions/comments I hear from people is something like this:

“I would be minimalist, but my husband hangs onto everything!”

“I can’t declutter because my wife doesn’t want to!”

Now…I hear you, I get it. You are sharing your life with a person and you are sharing your home with a person so it’s kind of hard to create a simple home when they are mini hoarders. Correct?

5 Ideas for Creating a Minimalist Bathroom with Less Plastic Waste

I have been desperately trying to apply more environmentally friendly techniques in my life for the last decade and let’s be honest, it’s hard!

The 5 Minute $25 Investment Plan for Kids

We all want the best for our kids and we all definitely want them to do better than we ever did, right? Even the most well-meaning parents can try to plan or save for their kids future and just totally drop the ball. I get it, it’s tough to save when there are sports, holidays and birthdays to pay for. Not to mention for the first 13 years kids basically need a new wardrobe every 6 months! Being a parent is financially exhausting (amongst other things). Thankfully, in the digital age, making smart money moves for our kids is easier (and more automatic) than ever. In a recent pivot we did, we took our kids from a high-yield savings account to opening their own investment accounts and it all took 5 minutes or less! I’ll walk you through the steps on how easy it is to set up an account for your kids and how you can help them save big time with only $25 a month!

Decorate Your Home with Sentimental Stuff You’re Not Ready to Let Go Of

Let’s be honest, the hardest struggle for most people when it comes to decluttering is letting go of sentimental items. We carry around things that people we love once bought us. Sometimes we carry around the things that once belonged to someone we love. A lot of times we attach our possessions to people and without knowing it can be carrying around a lot of excess baggage that really isn’t serving any purpose. Well, once we downsized our house I decided it was time to stop storing that stuff and start displaying it. Instead of holding onto sentimental items, I was ready to start displaying them in a way that felt authentic and showed people who I am. Here are some ideas to get you started.
