571 How to Succeed with No Buy July

On this very special podcast Kathi Lipp is joined by Clutter Free queen Tonya Kubo to get all of us excited about the month-long celebration we call No Buy July!

Some may think that No Buy July sounds crazy, after all – it is fun to spend money. But this challenge is meant to be a kind of retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Let’s put all our creative energy into doing something that is going to help our houses and our budgets breathe a little easier!

Listen in for all the details, and answers to questions like these:

  • What are the “rules” for No Buy July? (Hint – You don’t have to be a minimalist to participate.)
  • How can I convince my family to join in this challenge?
  • What happens if there is an emergency, or if I have a special event coming up?
  • What can we do for fun in July without spending money?
  • What will I wear? What will we eat? How does this whole thing work?

If you are as excited as we are about No Buy July, then be sure to join us! All you have to do is be part of Kathi Lipp’s free Facebook group, Clutter Free Academy. Go here to join, and be sure to answer the questions, then one of our friendly group admins will be sure to get you in.

Throughout the month of July there will be posts in the group with ideas and encouragement, and you can also ask your questions and cheer on one another in the kindest corner of the internet. If you are not on Facebook, email support@kathilipp.org and we will send you the activity guide to give you lots of ideas for making No Buy July a fun experience for you and your family.

The Clutter-Free Home: Making Room for Your Life

When it comes to your home, peace is possible…

Longing for a place of peace from which you can love others well? The Clutter-Free Home is your room-by-room guide to decluttering, reclaiming, and celebrating every space of your home.

Let author Kathi Lipp (who once lived a life buried in clutter) walk you through each room of your house to create organizational zones that are not only functional and practical but create places of peace that reflect your personality. Kathi will help you tackle the four-step process of dedicate, decide, declutter and “do-your-thing” to reveal the home you’ve always dreamed of, and then transform it into a haven that reflects who you truly are meant to be.

If you’re also feeling overwhelmed by the care and upkeep of all the stuff under your feet or sense that your home is running you, instead of the other way around, come discover how to create a space that doesn’t have to be showroom perfect to be perfect for you and the people you love.
