If you are struggling with burnout, feeling overwhelmed by clutter, like your nervous system is failing you, and have no clue how you're supposed to keep up with the business of your life, then you are in the right place.

The Unstuffed Podcast is a minimalist lifestyle centered podcast that focuses largely on what we can do to simplify our life, practice slow living, and declutter all in the name of healing both inside and out. This is a place where minimalism meets self development and the results are fantastic!

Hosted by shopaholic turned minimalist, Renee Benes, Renee will share with you pieces of her minimalist journey and how she used it as a tool for self growth. She and her blended family downsized their house by 2,000 finished square feet, decluttered over half their belongings, and she even went cold turkey on shopping. Her hope? To create the time, money, and space that would help her find herself and her real purpose in this life.

What started as a massive decluttering session turned into a mission of self discovery. Renee will remind you throughout the Unstuffed Podcast that our lives are so much bigger than the stuff we own. She will encourage you to declutter, let go, and slow down all in the name of healing your soul and finding purpose in your life.

By applying minimalist practices to your home, mindset, and even your schedule you can begin to create space for the things that truly matter the most.

Renee will share vulnerable stories about her real-life struggles and how simplifying and slowing down helped her heal. She'll also open the floor to authors, coaches, and fellow humans who are all in pursuit of living a life that feels a little more aligned.

Need some motivation to go after the big dreams you've always had for your life? You're in the right place.

If slow living, clutter-free, self growth, and nervous system healing are totally your jam, then be sure to tune in to experience a delicious combination of all of these things right here on the Unstuffed Podcast.

ShazzaBjorkman ,

Love it!

I have just discovered Renee and I’m binge listening from ‘oldest to newest’. Absolutely loving Renee’s down to earth way of talking and have loved every episode so far. Highly recommend! 😊

Shhhhhhjess ,

The sentimental clutter episode?!

Started out really useful but then it got pretty wild. So people with anxiety are more likely to get Alzheimers? But also don’t believe ‘facts’? That makes me feel terrible, thanks. I can manifest not getting Covid if I want to? What? Did I bring it on myself because I inadvertently willed it? Some of this episode was really dangerous for people with a mental health condition or someone in a fragile state of mind and shouldn’t have been broadcast. You can’t drop this kind of information without it being part of ongoing, long term therapy. It’s totally inappropriate.
