Let me ask you a question:
Is your house the way you want it to be going into 2023?
Is your house the sanctuary you want it to be?
Do you have a plan to get your house decluttered and organized in a way that makes you feel happy and in control?
Have you ever thought to yourself,
“I wish I had the self-control to stick to a decluttering and organizing plan?
Maybe you’ve asked yourself…
- “Why can’t I just stay organized?”
- “Why can I never find anything when I’m looking for it?”
- “Why is keeping clutter out of my house so hard for me?”
Hey friend, Kathi Lipp here.
I’m the author of Clutter Free and The Clutter Free Home, as well as the founder of the Clutter Free Academy Podcast and Facebook Group. I have helped thousands of people reclaim their homes and live in peace with their stuff. I’ve traveled all over the U.S. teaching people how to declutter and organize their homes – not Pinterest perfect, but livable and loving spaces that work for them and their families.
For years, I was a writer and speaker focused on helping women in their marriages (my book, The Husband Project, was even a Publishers Weekly bestseller.) And while I loved talking about transforming marriages, I realized that more and more people were being helped when I talked about transforming my home.
I grew up with a hoarder (my father) and never broke away from some of the habits and mindsets I learned from him. And besides wanting a beautiful and ordered home, I wanted to stop beating myself up about not just how my home looked, but how it felt as well.
I had tried every organizing and decluttering system there was. I would make some progress. And then life would get busy and I was back to my cluttery ways.
But then, after a hard marriage and even worse divorce, a miracle was happening. I was getting remarried. The problem? The only house we could afford was the one that my fiancé already owned: And it was 1,400 square feet. For six people. No joke.
I had to make a decision – was I going to continue in my life of clutter, or was I going to finally figure out why clutter had such a hold on me?
After spending so much of my time trying to figure out why clutter was such a struggle, I got down to the root of it. It wasn’t the stuff. It was how I felt about the stuff.
Fear – “What if I need this someday?”
Guilt – “But someone I love gave this to me.”
Shame – “But I spent so much money on this.”
And that is when I realized that if I could understand how I felt about my stuff, I could deal with my stuff once and for all.
The one thing that actually made a difference in not just my clutter, but my peace was my decluttering community.
Once I started to talk through my clutter issues with people who actually understood the mentality behind why I kept the things I did, it was the beginning of starting to let things go in a way that had never happened before.
The next logical step was to write a book on the subject. It felt so freeing to have conquered my clutter, I wanted everyone else to experience the same peace. Not because I knew it all but because I HAD BEEN THROUGH IT ALL.
That’s how I met my biggest decluttering accountability partner – Tonya Kubo.
Tonya and I have helped each other not only declutter, but check our thinking so that we never get back to the place of being overwhelmed by clutter ever again. Once Tonya and I linked arms, and kept each other accountable, everything changed.
- I started decluttering a little bit, every day, even when I didn’t feel like it.
- I knew where things were in my house. (No more buying seconds – or thirds – of things because I couldn’t find what I already had…)
- Not only did I love my house, but my husband and I now host writers retreats in our home (the ultimate former cluttery person victory is having people stay in your house with less than 24 hours’ notice!)
- And most importantly? I started to live in peace.
OK, so listen.
You’ve been thinking about how this will be the year to finally declutter your house and create the home you’ve always dreamed of. One that is filled with peace instead of stuff.
Is the idea of changing your home something you’d like to start working on? Because, right now, I have a plan that will show you how.
Today, I’m so excited to introduce you to our PRIVATE MEMBERSHIP COMMUNITY, Clutter Free for Life. After years of living our Clutter Free lives, Tonya and I decided to create this membership for people who don’t just want to change their homes, but also their habits and minds one day at a time.
One of the biggest factors in clutter, I have come to understand, is decision fatigue. Having to make decisions of not only what you are going to get rid of, but also what room to work on first, how much time to spend decluttering (and when to stop), where to put things? Because when everything feels like it is just completely overwhelming, it is, well, overwhelming.
So, our goal is to take some of those decisions off you.
Our Clutter Free for Life program is based on my book, The Clutter Free Home.
We will spend a day a week cycling through the rooms in your home. Week in and week out. Your entire house will start to become less cluttered and more focused over the course of the year.
- And if you’re worried about burning out, we have you covered. We have planned a series of action-oriented challenges to keep you motivated and to boost your decluttering efforts as you make your way through your home for the year.
Each month, we will have a focus room that we will all be working on together.
For example, the entire month of February, the kitchen gets all the attention with the four areas of our plan:
- Dedicate – Understand what the room is used for and create a space that reflects you (and your family’s) needs.
- Decide – It’s time to make decisions on how you want the space to look and feel.
- Declutter – We will have daily tasks for you to tackle in your space.
- Do Your Thing – Once the room if on it’s way to being decluttered, it’s time to give it the personality that is uniquely yours.
Introducing our Clutter Free for Life Coaches
The daughter of a hoarder, Tonya Kubo is the founder of the Clutter Free Academy Facebook group and Clutter Free for Life membership. After spending decades thinking she was doomed to follow in her mother’s footsteps, she now helps others to kick clutter to the curb once and for all in a way that’s practical and sustainable.
Grace discovered Clutter Free through Kathi’s “2000 Thing Fling” in January 2015. Since then she’s been counting, cleaning, and decluttering her way through her home, one item at a time. Grace has been a regular contributor at CFA since it began in 2016 and a member of CFFL since its inception in 2019.
“Organized Deanna” thought she was clutter free until she heard Kathi speak at a 2016 conference. That’s when she realized she was organizing clutter. She went home, joined CFA and never looked back. CFL enhances her journey, and she continues to spend 15 minutes daily kicking clutter to the curb.
Roger and his wife, author Kathi Lipp, are the cofounders of Kathi Lipp’s Clutter Free for Life. When Roger isn’t wrangling chickens at The Red House, he helps teams of technical creators achieve their goals by helping them make sense of the chaos that naturally comes about from the creative process. He brings this same sense of calm chaos-busting to Clutter Free for Life.
