No routines, no direction, feeling totally alone and isolated, stuck in our thoughts and down on ourselves. The thing is that we are not meant to stay that way.

EP56 Strong opinions about clutter that will help you!!
  Today I share with you what those are and what the foundation of the Motherhood Simplified movement is based on.  Often times moms come into the Motherhood Simplified community with the same root issues but seeking the same bandaid solutions. I often find myself giving advice that I can FEEL through the internet that is frustrating to the moms I get to know becuase.... it's not the easy answer. It's not the answer we're sold by Target and the Container Store and Home Goods. But these answers - which are my opinions - about clutter in the home and the impact it has on us are strong. So strong that I will shout them from the rooftops to any mom who will listen because I know they will be infinitely more helpful to you than any fluffy, unopinionated, easy answer I can give you.

EP55 Why you should declutter BEFORE you have your baby
 This community is called Motherhood Simplified - so obviously we are in the seasons of having babies. One question I get often is "should I declutter before my maternity leave or during". I wholheartedly believe that BEFORE is the answer, and for so many reasons. In this episode I tell the story of my different postpartum experiences I have had. The good, the bad, the ugly and what I wish I would have known about decluttering BEFORE actually having the baby. Because for me, every time, the hard work comes after you have the baby. Especially if you already have other kids.     IN THIS EPISODE WE TALK ABOUT ... why it's so important to muster up the energy you can while pregnant to declutter BEFORE the baby comes ... how much it will pay you if you DO this ... how to get started in the fastest, and simplest way without burning yourself out while pregnant before baby comes ADDITIONAL RESOURCES TO SUPPLEMENT THIS EPISODE ...

As you continue on through the process you MUST start to change and become a woman who makes decisions, who takes action, and gets herself out of her rut.

I hope that this episode shines a light on the truth behind your clutter and what it causes you to internalize about yourself and your life.

How to declutter so you can have a joyful Christmas full of gratitude instead of burden
It's that season.. where all the gifts and toys come rolling in and making your house a cluttered mess.. right? Wrong. Your home is cluttered and overwhelming to you because of what happened the other 11 months of the year. In this video I teach you how to clear out the clutter so that you can have a Christmas season of JOY and FUN, instead of opening up a long line of toys and gifts and deep heavy sighs of "oh, great, more work.". I reject the idea of "experiences" as gifts, and limiting yourself to a strict criteria.. if that works for you, great. But handing out approved gift lists, and requesting experiences only don't solve the problem of your cluttered home. You need to declutter and clear out the existing overwhelm and burden so that you can have room for gratitude, joy, and have fun giving and receiving this holiday season. Need help decluttering and don't know where to start? Join our free challenge Try On Minimalism that starts December 3rd!!
