    527 - 5 Amazon Items to Help You Declutter

    Are you on top of your container game? These days we have all sorts of new verbs: if we want to know something we "google” it, if we want to go somewhere we "uber” there, and if we need something in a few days we "amazon” it. Naturally the accidental homesteaders Kathi and Roger have things "amazon-ed" to their mountain home to make their clutter-free life easier and more functional. Join Kathi and Roger as they take us through their process of choosing containers for a clutter-free success story. The best part is these items are only a click away, including:
    Grocery Bag Holder Extending Drawer Spice Rack Matching Hangers Be sure to come back next week for part 2 when Kathi and Roger will equip us with even more Amazon favorites for decluttering.

Thank you for your insight and for being real with your listeners. It’s helpful to know I’m not the only one who struggles with clutter!

Kathi Is A Podcast Friend

I started listening to Kathi about 1 1/2 years ago. She is so personable and down to earth. She gives sound, solid advice on how to make your home environment better. She always has a guest on the podcast, which keeps the conversation moving along so naturally. Kathi has a good voice. Her show is just right length too. She doesn’t have a nervous laugh or annoying traits. Her show isn’t riddled with advertising and endorsements. KATHI IS A GREAT LADY. I am so happy I found her. 🎉
