    I'm really liking this! I'm so surprised considering how scared I was to unload perfectly fine clothing. But honestly, the freedom and lightenss is astounding. Today, I re-wore the same clothes as yesterday because I didn't dirty them and I'm frugal with the laundry. A navy fleece and blue...

    Well, I have been called; and I moving from Missouri to Ohio to attend seminary. So, I am downsizing a three bedroom house to an efficiency. I bought a small storage building for the important stuff that is not immediately useful at school. I have donated a lot of books and other things...

    Hi FV, I wanted to ask, when you're organizing bathroom products, do you ever have the urge just to purge it rather than using it up? I think I have way too much. Do you possible have any other suggestions when it comes to bathroom products such as lotions, hair products, scrubs(that have never...

    When taking down the Christmas decorations I look at my home environment in a different light & get the urge to clean and lighten up on my belongings. Anyone else feel like that? I'm already looking around and thinking of what I want to keep and what I really don't use/need and want to find new...

    With the possibility of moving to another city in the midst, it was time that I took charge of the house and did the ultimate purge! We won't be taking anything with us that we haven't been using and/or will not be using in the new house. This goes for everything! From dishes to clothing to...

    A couple weeks ago I had to take a sudden flight (booked 2 hours before it was leaving) and I just dumped all the sharp things out of my cosmetic bag onto the counter. When I got back my husband commented that the bathroom looked like something out of a Saw movie :o. I just threw everything...

    So, we've listed our house, and had our first Open House on Sunday. To prepare, I upped the purge factor around here, which is usually at approximately 97% to begin with. I've said it before, but I feel the need to say it again... If you put yourself in the mindset of "I have to sell my...

    So I decided that I was tired of having around things we didn't need or served us no purpose, and as such I have started purging the house of these things. Along with the purge goes a reorganization of what will be sticking around. I've already started by using up all of the half-empty...

    Okay, so I'm guessing that many of you are good purgers of the stuff in your home, but not so conscious of the "stuff" that you have hanging out there in cyberspace. So, tonight, take a few moments and go to your e-mail. Delete what you don't need in your Inbox. Go to your Sent Items folder...

    This weekend, I'm planning on a paper purge. Dh's desk has quite a bit of paper on it. We also have some mail laying around that needs to be dealt with. However, the big deal is our files. It's time to purge and shred. We've hung on to a few things for way too long, and it's time for them...

    Here we are...last week of August. Summer is coming to an end and if you are anything like me, you are starting to get fall fever. However, the unfortunate consequence of fall is that, like squirrels, we start stocking up for the winter. We begin to think about the long months inside, and...

    Today, we went through and threw a lot of stuff away. We try to do this as often as we can and we still never seem to catch up. We found stuff that should have been pitched years ago. I shredded cancelled checks from 1994. I thought our bills and such were caught up but boy was I mistaken...

    Hi all! Spring has sprung...well, for most of us. I'd love to have us all commit to filling a large trash bag with EITHER: trash to toss OR items to donate If you can fill one bag for each category, all the better! This week, I had Dd go through her books and she donated a pile of them...

    After 25 years, I'm actually going to let go. Yes, those of you who know me are hysterically laughing. I can hear you! About 15 years ago, I opened a cross stitch shop to supplement my income because way back then, if you were student teaching before graduating, the college would not allow...

    Until we settled in our current home in Atlanta, my husband and I moved every year or two. Each time, we got rid of a bunch of stuff. Now that we're staying put, I want to make sure we're not keeping stuff just to keep it. How often do you go through your house & get rid of/sell/etc stuff you...

    Okay ladies (and gents), Today I'd like you to collect all of your cleaning supplies, wherever you may hide them, and clear out the junk. Do you use all of your supplies regularly? Are there some that you bought, yet never use? Do you have bottles that are almost completely empty, but you...
