#421 Best of CFA Series: Creating a Clutter-Free Community of Sharing (Re-Release)

On today’s episode of the podcast, Kathi is joined by Tonya Kubo, the illustrious leader of the Clutter-Free Academy Facebook group. Kathi and Tonya share about the value of creating a clutter-free community and how you can create a culture of generosity and reciprocity in your own community.

On today’s show you’ll learn:

  • How a “small give” can be a great way to start building a community of sharing
  • Why it is a false economy to hold onto stuff “until I have time to sell it”
  • The many benefits of a “semi-permanent” loan
