How I stopped trying to cram my life (and my house) full

I used to work 7 days a week.

And I homeschooled my kids and ran a home business, cooked every meal from scratch and tried to be a good wife and mom.

I literally was packing up orders for my online bookstore hours before giving birth to my 3rd child. (NOT recommended!)

Here’s a photo of me, probably very tired but still smiling, when I was right in the thick of it.

Eventually, I managed to stop this incessant cycle of work-work-work.

I learned how to declutter in a way that didn’t overwhelm me.

And now knowing what I know, I have SO much more free time to enjoy.

I still love to work and I love my possessions but neither one of them overwhelms me.

Now that I look back I see SO many parallels between constant working and filling up my home with things.

Watch this video to learn about the time-clutter connection.

I’ll explain how I stopped the cycle and how letting go of my stuff helped me pare back on the things I was filling my time with.
