  1. Organize & Declutter
    I am in a toss it out mood!! Our house honestly can't store much more stuff. I have a ton of baby gear and clothes I can start getting rid of. My question is yard sale or donate? I decided for clothes anything that isn't of great value like snowsuit etc I will donate locally for sure, even with...
  2. Organize & Declutter
    Has anyone ever just done a major overhaul on their living space? I know most of us are in the same boat, as moms who are mostly is not totally responsible for keeping the house in order & clean. I'm just done struggling with all of the "stuff" and the major tasks that never get done like...
  3. Organize & Declutter
    After having endured some personal tragedy over the past 3 months, I am starting over with a lot in my life. I never was a clutter bug but I am wanted a clean slate and that means getting rid of several bags of things in my life. I am going through and pulling out whatever I have not used in...

    What are your favorite Simple Living and Decluttering books to read? I am looking for new books on this topic because I find it fascinating. I would love to have less things and spend less time taking care of stuff and more time with family. Thanks, Michelle

    Hello readers, I m a product design student student from University of the Arts London. I m currently carrying out some research on home organising and decluttering and I m particularly interested in the bedside area. Here is the link for the quick survey...
  6. Organize & Declutter
    We're blessed with generous family, friends and neighbours who have given my kids plenty of clothes, primarily hand-me downs. Now we're swimming in clothes. I was wondering what would be a reasonable amount of clothes to keep? I was thinking a week's worth as we only do laundry once a week...
  7. Organize & Declutter
    I had a bit of an epiphany tonight because a friend showed me craft books and embroidery books she is throwing out to the op shop....eeek, two great loves of mine, craft and embroidery and my heart literally started pounding with anxiety at the sight of those books, I sooo wanted to grab the...
  8. Organize & Declutter
    Today I woke up angry. Angry because my house is very messy, angry because for the fourth week in a row, we are sick with something new and I'm simply and utterly exhausted, angry because my husband has such a tight schedule now with work and I receive little to no help from him and I also have...
  9. Organize & Declutter
    Hi ladies! This is my first post to mothering, and excited to hear some feed back. When I was growing up we moved as a family A LOT. So, I learned over time, that it's easier to have less, and it's easy to re-accumulate things. I don't keep items, and hardly ever form emotional attachments to...
  10. Organize & Declutter
    I read Organized Simplicity a couple years ago and have been slowly decluttering and minimizing since then. It was such a lightbulb moment for me. It was like a switch was flipped. I looked around and thought, "Oh. my. goodness. Why do I even HAVE all this stuff?!" I looked around and saw junk...
  11. Organize & Declutter
    OK - I completely understand decluttering. But are there benefits to simplifying beyond even that? For example: In my kitchen cabinet I have two nested stacks of mixing bowls - one ceramic, one steel. If I want to whip up cornbread, I have my choice of oh, say, ten different bowls. I also...
  12. Organize & Declutter
    I have a house full of baby stuff: Most of it was never used, or used seldom but I still don't know what to keep and what to give away. I feel guilty getting rid of the baby swing and travel stroller my mom got even though they were only used a handful of times. I think "what hypothetical little...
  13. Organize & Declutter
    I've been decluttering for the past two years and i find that i have a hard time dealing with my toiletries and stationary stash. I've cut down a lot, specially on the toiletries, but i guess its just the kind of stuff i love and use often, so i'll probably always have some of it. I try to live...
  14. Organize & Declutter
    Okay, if the person who designed my house was standing in front of me, I just might kick him/her in the shin. With 4 bedrooms, how did it not make sense to include more than one teeny tiny linen closet?? I have struggled for years with trying to fit everything I need to in this closet- towels...
  15. Organize & Declutter
    Ok, hubby and I downsized the kitchen today and it looks and feels WONDERFUL!!! However, I walk into the living room, and YUCK! This is pretty much the heart of our home, it's where we spend most of our time, and do the most stuff. Our 8 mo old crawls in here, my knitting/crocheting/craft...

    Saw this blog come through my facebook feed and thought I'd share it here. :) A Slob Comes Clean
  17. Organize & Declutter
    I'm clearing out as much as possible to make my house more manageable. I'm getting rid of a bunch of coats - most of which I was given for free. I could really use the money, but I just don't have the energy to sell them. Should I just donate them? Or should I hold on to them to sell when/if I...
  18. Organize & Declutter
    My family has lots of stuff, of course. I'm trying to downside the stuff we do by really want/need, but I'm having trouble. Particularly with the stuff we've been given for my 7 mo old son. They were all gifts. Given by our family and friends and I feel bad donating/ect of stuff that was...
