540: Why I Go to the Dump Once a Month

Do you struggle with the idea of throwing things away? You’re not alone. In this episode, Kathi is joined by Tonya Kubo to unpack the complexities of this topic. Throwing things away is difficult for a number of reasons, but especially because it triggers a sense of wastefulness. In addition to explaining when it’s time to throw something away, Kathi shares with us four tips for how to get comfortable with getting stuff out of our houses, such as:

  • Stop feeling guilty about throwing things away.
  • Put it on your calendar to go to the dump.
  • Give everything away that you can, but you don’t get to give away junk.
  • Know how to dispose of things.
