About

   This web site is written to share with you my many experiences and ideas on how to declutter and get more organized in your home.  Throughout the years I’ve had many garage sales and donated lots of things to charity. I’ve learned how to let go of those things that can emotionally hold you in the past.

You have to let go of the past before you can move forward towards the future!

I’ve had an interest in organizing and decluttering since the early 1980″s when my children were young and I lived in my first home as a young married mother. I soon found out that with children plus more space it was easy to accumulate things.

Organizing and controlling the clutter doesn’t come naturally to me so I read many books and put into practice different plans over the years to help me.

I have learned that controlling the clutter and organizing is a journey, not a destination. One plan or idea may work at one stage of our life and not at another. One house may be easy to keep organized and the next house may not be designed as well.

Once I accepted that this is a journey I was able to let go of my perfectionism and move forward to pursue my passion for writing.

So now I’m combining that passion for writing with the hobby of decluttering to pass along all that I’ve learned so you too can move forward out of the past and pursue your passion.

I live in St. Louis, MO with my husband, cat, and dog. My two sons live out of town but I love when they visit. It forces me to make sure their mostly unused rooms stay clean and clutter free.

To a lighter load along the way.
