I’m always hosting decluttering parties, basically because I’m a girl who really knows how to have a good time. These are usually small parties, small parties which only include me. “Morgan party of one…” #lifeofthepartyrighthere
However as we prepare to pack up our entire house in about a month – you can bet I’m dragging more people to my party, cough cough, kids and husband. (No more parties of one, we’ve got to get things done!)
In the Tyree casa we’ve got tossers and keepers. If you are a “tosser” you probably do a pretty good job of naturally keeping on top of your clutter. After all it’s probably how you function best. But if you lean more towards being a “keeper,” decluttering may often feel very, very overwhelming. I get it, I live with some full-fledged “keepers” and trust me, they are not always fans of my tossing ways. They tend to struggle with letting go of things and usually get a bit stuck when it comes to decluttering.
If you can relate to the feeling of getting stuck when it comes to decluttering your house, you’ll want to check out this great resource. It’s an invaluable tool for anyone wanting to have an uncluttered home. (I see you raising your hand!)
