493 - The Four Critical Strategies You Will Need to Stay Clutter Free For Life Part 2
Kathi and Tonya are back in part 2 of the four critical strategies we need for staying clutter free for life. Last week, in part 1, we unlocked the secret key of challenges and talked about the power of a calendar.
Fighting clutter is more about how we deal with it on a regular basis than about our circumstances and situations, yet for some reason, we allow our clutter to cause us to feel shame. One of the best ways we can combat that shame is with the motivation and encouragement that comes through the power of community.
There are a million different cluttery circumstances. The Clutter Free For Life Community has people from all kinds of backgrounds, and they really get it. It is really a place to find your people and gain:

Loveeee this podcast!!
I love listening to Kathy! She is relatable, funny, and practical! I first had read her Clutter Free book a few years ago and it’s been super helpful in my clutter journey! I was so excited to recently find out she has a podcast! Please make more podcasts Kathy, I am a huge fan!!
I was today years old….
Just found this podcast today - loving it! Straightforward and practical, and I plan to wade through almost all of them WHILE I declutter!!!
Very Motivating and Relatable!
I love this podcast, it’s my favorite! I have been listening to Kathi and her guests for a few years now and I find them tremendously helpful, funny, and motivating in my clutter free journey. Kathi’s approach is so honest and authentic. You can really hear her heart for helping others come through when she discusses the emotional reasons behind clutter with several of her guests. I think this podcast will help others who struggle with the shame of clutter (or inheriting someone else’s!) and the difficulties many of us face feeling overwhelmed and discouraged, not knowing where to start. Kathi’s gentle yet effective method of retraining your brain to think differently and understand what our stuff really is, gave me a different mindset. It made it SO much easier and rewarding to declutter without feeling the shame of not having busted clutter in the past - the hundreds of times I’ve tried! I replay episodes while I declutter sometimes. Perfect amount of time for a daily de-clutter. Thanks Kathi!
