The grief – clutter connection explained by our coaches

It’s a hard topic but one we are discussing today:  grief and clutter.

Grief often plays a big role in the accumulation and maintenance of clutter. Sometimes, it is hard to let go of a loved one’s belongings. Other times, the stress of dealing with loss allows clutter to run wild.

We’re having a chat today with 3 of our Network Decluttering Coaches – Selena, Karen, and Donna –  on the grief and clutter connection, as well as why it doesn’t look the same for everyone.

  1. when my mom died we lived across the country. we moved her clothes into bins and his clothes were in the laundry room so we moved him into the closet. we felt that it was the right choice at the time. I am not sure that he felt the same. but we lived so far away and didn’t have the convenience to help him at a slower pace. sometimes the smallest things are a lot.

  2. so helpful to hear the comments about how closely grief and decluttering relate and how to work with managing those connections so I can get rid of stuff that is not relevant anymore. Thank you. mary

  3. Thank you for putting such diverse and capable coaches together for this topic. I learned so much. I will listen again, when I get stuck.

    Good job.
