Our home is a reflection of our internal experience. When we’re feeling frazzled, busy, and overworked, it shows up all around us as cluttered spaces, overcommitted schedules, and judgment that we’re never doing enough. This podcast aims to tidy up all the clutter that has you spinning in circles. If you’re a woman with a to-do list, running one household (or more!), or caring for others, this podcast is for you. We will go beyond the basics of home organization to talk about why a clutter-free mindset is essential to an aligned and sustainable lifestyle. I’ll invite you to get curious about the standards and expectations women feel pressured to uphold, and together we’ll ditch the idealized destination of domestic perfection for a more comfortable, realistic, and restorative way of living.

Amazing tips!

I just listened to the episode with Shira Gill and loved it. So many great takeaways and I appreciate the direct yet accessible approach to organizing and minimalism. Amelia offers great strategies around mindset and knocks the interview out of the park!

Very Reflective!

I loved listening to Episode 54 and the awareness that has come for Lynne as she works with clients as a result of experiencing grief in her own life. The connection truly is there not just when a person has died but when the emotional connection clients have to their belongings is there as well. Also love the creativity of the game she incorporated!

Highly recommend

A Pleasant Solution: Embracing an Organized Life covers a wide range of topics related to organization, including decluttering techniques, time management strategies, and mindfulness practices. Amelia goes beyond just tidying up physical spaces, she explores how decluttering can lead to greater clarity of mind, reduced stress, and increased productivity. The podcast offers a delightful blend of inspiration and guidance.
