How To Be Awesome At Purging
Question- does your home feel like a relaxing oasis? Like if you come home from a long day, does it feel like a nice breath of fresh air?
Well, mine didn’t. I had too much stuff… and I didn’t realize how badly I needed a purge. I had no idea how much I would learn about purging and how to do it the right way. So that your home feels how you want it to feel. Less stuff, more organized and you feel more calm and relaxed like you’re completely in your happy place.
I’m breaking down the three steps that I followed to reach this level of organization through purging that was a game changer for me. First, get rid of anything in your house that you don’t love or use. Then, organize what’s left in a way that really works for you. And step 3, stop buying more shit. Before you buy something, think about whether or not it’s just going to add to the mess in the long run.
Purging is so much more than just taking time to go through things. It’s emotional and complicated and we’re getting into all of it…
How To Be Awesome At Party Details
Today we are talking about party details. The little things that make a celebration extra special.
Whether it’s an adults birthday or a kids birthday, or a holiday party… I’m going through lots of ways to make it special and memorable.
To me, it’s all about those little details and that doesn’t always mean it has to be expensive. Some of my favorite details from events that I’ve thrown aren’t pricey at all- it’s more about the creative thinking and the personalization and sometimes, getting crafty with a glue gun.
This episode is packed with lots of ideas to make your next celebration unique and personalized and fun! We’re talking about everything from the invitation to a little goodbye gift or treat and everything in between.
How To Be Awesome At Not Letting Judgement Stop You
I think the number one thing that stops us from doing things we want to do is… judgment.
Maybe you don’t start the business you want to start or don’t post the picture you want to post or actually quit what was a fantastic idea… all because of judgment. Judgment from strangers on social media or even judgment from family or friends… it’s all toxic.
Today we’re going to train ourselves to care more about our opinions of ourselves than anyone else’s opinions of us.
How to condition our minds so that a negative comment on social doesn’t break us and worrying what other people will say doesn’t stop us.
How I’ve learned to call out my own fails and misses- so there’s really not a lot that people can say about me- I’ve already owned up to it and it takes the fire out of it. It lets us all move on from it.
We’re talking about not letting judgment stop you from doing whatever it is that you want to do.

Customer ReviewsSee All
As a new mom who works full time and manages her home, all while trying to be super woman, I appreciate Lindsay’s tips! I see a lot of myself in her. Her tips are inspirational and give me life right now. As a working mom who is trying to do it all, it gives me hope I can and will do it!
Love this podcast! Even if I can’t do things as big or fancy as she does, I get such great ideas that I make work on my budget and in my environment. She puts herself out there and I am better for listening. This is a bright spot in a difficult world.
Came over from her spray tan podcast!
I found Lindsay through her spray tan podcast and this one is just as good! It has such a positive vibe and feels really down to earth. I love that she brings up topics we don’t really want to discuss and suggests solutions instead of consistent complaints. A lot of her suggestions don’t fit my lifestyle but that’s ok, it still gets me thinking about what I can do to be better.
To the bad reviews based on who they think she voted for - this is America! You have the choice to not listen. Leaving a bad review based on anything other than content is just plain ignorant.
