533: Decluttering When You Don’t Know Where to Start

Part 2

Do you feel overwhelmed by your clutter, not knowing where to start? Kathi and Roger have both been there. Through experience and lots of decluttering, they have learned what works to launch them back into decluttering. In part one of this conversation, we learned the framework of the system they use to help tame the chaos and get their space back in order. Now, in part two, we take a deeper dive into the details of that system. Often, we can get hung up on making decisions about what to do next. Kathi and Roger are here to explain how this routine can help us make decisions and move on. Listen in to find out what it means to:

  • Find the trash 
  • Fill the containers 
  • Feed the machines

Overwhelmed:

How to Quiet the Chaos and Restore Your Sanity

 

“I Don’t Even Know Where to Start!”

Feeling overwhelmed?

Wondering if it’s possible to move from “out of my mind” to “in control” when you’ve got too many projects on your plate and too much mess in your relationships?

Kathi and Cheri want to show you five surprising reasons why you become stressed, why social media solutions don’t often work, and how you can finally create a plan that works for you. As you identify your underlying hurts, uncover hope, and embrace practical healing, you’ll understand how to…

• Trade the to-do list that controls you for a calendar that allows space in
your life

• Decide whose feedback to forget and whose input to invite

• Replace fear of the future with peace in the present

 

You can simplify and savor your life — guilt free! Clutter, tasks, and relationships may overwhelm you now, but God can help you overcome with grace.

529: How to Declutter Your Tech

Part 1

Are you unsure how to declutter and deal with different aspects of your tech? Does it get more complicated because you aren’t sure about the proper answer to questions like: what if there is personal information on there and what if I need it as a backup? Now you can safely lay those questions to rest because Kathi is here with Roger, her “chief tech get – a – ridder,” today. With such a fancy title, there is obviously much to learn from him! As an engineer with decades of tech experience, Roger has navigated many different tech scenarios, both in the corporate world and the work-from-home world. There is a lot of anxiety and fear of unknown things surrounding tech. How to declutter, repurpose, organize, and dispose of tech responsibly is challenging to most of us cluttery people. Listen in to find out how you can be proactive about tech starting with: 

 

  • Knowing who the tech person of the house is
  • Being able to find tech components when we need them
  • Agreeing on space 
  • Why everyone needs a “Tech Goo Box”
