“Hi my name is Kathi and I am a clutterer.”

Maybe you can relate? Kathi and guest, Tonya Kubo, discuss what they have learned about common traits of those of us that struggle with clutter.  Often those of us with clutter struggle with boundaries.  We say yes to too many things and put ourselves last. Then because we don’t handle the clutter correctly we are mean to ourselves. We just try to do too much and set ourselves up for failure.
