Eps. #315: The Clutter Free Move

Eps. #315: The Clutter Free Move

Tonya has just lived my nightmare; not only did she move, she moved into a smaller house.

You would think that this would have sent her into a corner, rocking back and forth, but not Tonya. As the leader of Clutter Free Academy on Facebook Tonya has learned more than a thing or two about how to do life Clutter Free – including moving all of her earthly possessions.

And now, Tonya and I will share everything we’ve learned about moving in the midst of getting rid of clutter.

In this info-filled interview, you will learn how to:
• make decisions about what to bring and what to get rid of
• change your attitude about keeping stuff “just in case”
• give things away with an attitude of abundance

After the interview, I asked Tonya to share with me her 3 rules for holding a yard sale/giveaway. Here is what Tonya encourages you to state:

  1. No Holds: Your objective is to get rid of stuff, not to establish layaway programs.
  2. No Negotiating: This will considerably lessen your stress on the day. Price things to move!
  3. No Give-Backs: Once you take it, it’s yours. Tonya had her couch returned 3 times because people failed to measure their space or the couch. Eventually, they ended up taking it to the dump – what a waste – especially since the right buyer may have stopped by at some point while the couch was on a field trip.

I’m thrilled to have Tonya back on the show! Join us if you are planning a move, or ever plan on moving – you will thank me!

Is a Balanced Life Possible? Finding Peace in the Busy

Do you spend your days rushing from one task to the next, frantically checking things off your list?

You will learn that being at your best doesn’t mean taking on every task, and meaningful satisfaction can’t be bought with a completed to-do list. Be inspired to move past halfhearted living and second bests into a kingdom of rejuvenation, health, and eternal nourishment.
