(Formerly The Minimal-ish Podcast)
With intention is a podcast about celebrating the beauty that can be found in the ordinary and pursuing intention in every area of our everyday lives.
We'll talk about relationships, family life, motherhood, work, caring for ourselves, budgeting and intentional spending, minimalism, and everything in between.
Declutter With Me: The Bathroom
Today I'm taking you on a decluttering session with me! This is part of a new series where we will go room by room together and I'll let you in on my thoughts as I declutter.
Decluttering used to be a major topic on the podcast, and I could use some maintenance decluttering. Springtime brings about the motivation to bring peace to our homes, so let's do it together.
For the first episode, I go over questions to ask yourself if you have a hard time letting go of things or feel guilt over doing so - especially as it relates to bathroom items. At the end of the episode, we dive into how decluttering can create more mess before it gets better, and the deeper side of what it can do for you.
See my bathroom mess before and after at @life_withintention on instagram.
I hope this episode motivates you to set a timer for 20-30 minutes and declutter along side of me.

The One In One Out Rule Three Ways (Maintenance Decluttering for Your Stuff, Your Days, and Your Mind)
Today I'm talking about the one in one out rule - a very basic rule of maintenance decluttering. However, I'm not just talking about our stuff. I talk about how this rule can apply to our days and our minds as well.
I specifically dive deeper into how this rule can help declutter our days/minds to go along with the many episodes of burnout we've had so far this year on the show. I get real about something that has been missing from my days, and my one in, one out to help add it back in.

It's Okay to Take Time to Adjust (Non Negotiables and Bare Minimums)
Today I'm talking with you about a new mantra I've been telling myself: It's okay to take time to adjust.
I talk you through what this has meant to me and what it could mean for you, and take you through how I personally apply it in my own life with a list of non negotiables and bare minimums.
My hope is that this episode provides some grace and freedom if you've been in a season of change and adjustment.
