Organizing your stuff can be quite triggering. Even just figuring out where to start the process can be so overwhelming.
I'm grateful that Tracy Hoth from Simply Squared Away is here on the podcast today to help with all of it so that we can actually get through it.
Not only are we talking about managing clutter, letting go, and maintaining it, but Tracy also shares how our mindset impacts our ability to sort, purge, assign homes, and maintain the content in our business and life.
How much better will you feel when your home and business are clutter-free and organized?
I hope you got some inspiration to create a great space for yourself. You deserve to feel good!
