    #254: Where To Put Worn Clothes That You Want To Wear Again

    In our home, it’s a huge crime to toss practically clean clothes into the laundry basket. But what do you do with worn clothes that aren’t dirty and can be worn again?
    For most families, “half-clean” clothes tend to pile up on the floor, get tossed on chairs, and wadded up on dressers and nightstands.
    On today's episode, I give you simple and practical storage solutions for worn clothes that you want to wear again.

    #253: Simplify Your Home With These 17 Decluttering Questions To Ask Yourself

    #253: Simplify Your Home With These 17 Decluttering Questions To Ask Yourself

    Clutter can be so exhausting... especially when trying to get rid of it.
    Parting with things that you have an attachment to, for some people (including myself), can be really hard. In our culture we’re encouraged to buy more and do more. We all grew up acquiring things, but most of us were never taught how to let things go.
    If you truly want less clutter in your home, but you tend to feel a little overwhelmed or resistant to parting with your some of your stuff, it’s important to ask yourself the right questions when you assess each item.
    On today’s show, I give you 17 (plus) questions to ask yourself when organizing your home. These questions will help you determine what you should keep and what you should part with.

    #252: Change Your Life With This One Simple Belief

    #252: Change Your Life With This One Simple Belief

    The beliefs you have about yourself and the world (which are sometimes subconscious) naturally affect your thoughts… which affect your feelings… which affect your behavior and your actions.
    So, to put it simply, your deep ingrained beliefs determine what you do each day to accomplish your goals and dreams.
    On today’s episode, I share with you one very specific belief that can be a total game changer. If you can wrap your brain around it and really embrace it, it will change your perspective on so many things in life.
    This belief will help you manage your time and it will help you accomplish anything you set out to do. It’s a very simple concept that will help override another negative belief that we all have about certain things in life.
    Keep in mind this episode is the Part 2 of Episode #250, so definitely listen to that one first.

    #251: Build New Habits & Accomplish Your Goals With This One Simple Tactic

    #251: Build New Habits & Accomplish Your Goals With This One Simple Tactic

    I’m sure you have a few to-do lists (for some ideas on how to manage them, check out Episode #173).
    You probably write them all down or you may even have an app on your phone (listen to Episode #90 to hear about one of my favorites).
    And you may even have a daily focus list (if you don’t, you must… just listen to Episode #232 and Episode #68).
    We all have tasks and daily to-dos that once we’re done with them, we can check them off our list for good.
    But we also have daily tasks that are repetitive. Ones that we need to do over and over again, every day. Many of these tasks need to be done consistently to help us reach our goals.
    Unfortunately, these repetitive to-dos become mundane, so they end up getting get overlooked. Sometimes we forget about them or we get just too “busy” to do them.
    On today’s episode I give you one simple idea to help you focus on those daily to-dos to ensure that they always get done.
