  12. General Chat
    I read the threads here at FV about de-cluttering, and find them very inspiring. It's helped me to take a good look at what is around me and to realize that I have simply become used to it, and don't really see it anymore. I love reading about how you find more peace in your home after...

  18. Organization Challenge
    As we begin on our journey into a decluttered and organized home, I would really like for us to all identify why we are joining this challenge.
