There are people out there who love decluttering. I am not one of those people. But I do see the value in it and am so glad I've decluttered (and keep decluttering). I used to think that once I got good at decluttering, I'd learn to love it, and that would make it easy. That never happened. And that's okay.  Join a discounted Six-Week Decluttering Workshop guided by a coach certified in my method!  My booksWant to be a patron of the show?

The biggest benefit for me of using my No Mess Decluttering Process is not needing to predict how much time I'll need to declutter. Not needing to assess the mess and guess how long it will take to deal with it means I'm much more likely to get started.

I have removed emotions from my decluttering process, not because I don't have emotions, but because I do! I can't use emotions to declutter, so I stick with my fact and instinct based ways of dealing with things.One of the biggest things that brings up lots of emotions is being asked (or asking myself) WHY?Why didn't I take care of this before instead of letting it get so bad?Why did I get this?Why am I this way?I'm talking about why I don't use "why" and why it helps to not use "why" in my decluttering process.Take Your House Back is on sale!My booksWant to be a patron of the show?

liked the comment about doing laundry each day and how it did not work for you. I have a disabled child and have a lot of washing. we have lots of carers coming in to help. I do not do washing on Saturday and Sunday. I like to pretend that these are my days off. As I was listening to your pod cast, my washing machine had broken down and I had just got a new machine. I had mountains of laundry and was very grump, as it seamed to go on forever in the weekend. I felt that I had not had a break. Now I know why I was grumpy and will only do it Monday to Friday. I would love to do it only one day but we have really large volume. Thanks for the light bulb moment

So far I am listening while I am decluttering, commuting back and forth to work, and doing basic tasks around the house. Makes the 5 minute cleanups turn into ok, I am going to listen to this episode, and when it is finished, I will see where I am at. I finish up, or I say that inspired me, let's keep going.

Definitely not entirely related to one or the other. probably effected by both, but not one or the other. My mom is a clean freak, she grew up in very unstable environment, not clean or safe. It was her mission to not have us, or her, continue to experience the same. Plus she's very type A kinda personality. I am very not. My kids have a safe, reasonably clean, but cluttered, and a touch chaotic home lol. 5 kids and we homeschool, so there's Alot of people and stuff in a small house!

I don’t see any problem with asking my husband, “hey can you please put your drill away?” 🤷🏻‍♀️ and sometimes I do just put his stuff away himself. My hubby is very easy going enough that a little nagging isn’t a big deal with him though

And now it’s kind of a game for me to constantly be trying to stay on top of the kitchen throughout the day!

The things you say that were profound for you but seem like “duh” reality once you know it, resonate so truly with me. The fact that a clean kitchen means someone cleaned it - I needed to accept this just like you did. It has been so helpful to me and for some reason I am no longer annoyed that I have to do the same things over and over to keep things maintained. You are my favorite of all the cleaning/decluttering/organizing people I’ve listened to. You just “click” with me! ♥️

Really liked this episode! So true about maintaining, especially dishes! I also love the idea of the clutter threshold! Am currently going through the biggest decluttering purge I’ve ever done and it’s going great! Thanks for your podcast, books and YouTube videos!❤️

The sneak attack is terrible advice. Especially for a child that may have any sort of processing issue, or add, adhd, ocd, ect. This happened to me several times as a child and it was traumatic and still makes me feel upset when I think about it.

Also, this is my first ever podcast, and I found it upon recommendation, came to the list, and pulled the finger equivalent of the Price Is Right wheel, scrolling down and chose a random one. The Universe provides, though, because holy bananas - you're speaking to my soul here! I struggle with hoarding, and long to be like my best friend, who naturally tidies/straightens throughout the day without thinking about it. I love the concept of separating out these terms, and I'm going to download some of these podcasts for a trip I have tomorrow - this is really helpful. Thank you, so much!!

I don't mean to be disrespectful or anything, but don't your husband and kids ever help? it seems like there's constant mess and there's no way it's just you making it, but I never hear about them helping. why is this hard work delegated only to you?

Thats what I have always put in my daughters stocking! I never put useless crap in there. It's always either an orange or avacado and then candy and cards and pokemon stuff or whatever vinyl figure she is into at the moment! LOL
