The Kitchen List:

During the past two weeks, I have gone through every cupboard and drawer in my kitchen, systematically cleaning, tossing and rearranging. It is much nicer to work in now! For taking two weeks, my list may seem rather short, but emotionally, it is a very good list. I made the decision to keep the corelle ware we were given as a wedding gift, but had never opened -- 11 1/2 years ago. It is now in use, and serving us wonderfully. By rearranging things I found room for all of the things I longed to…See More

A Little Angel

This evening, I smashed my finger in a door. Trying to handle everything myself was impossible, because I wasn't thinking clearly. Just then, my two year old came, said in his way, "Finger hurt, oil!" He proceeded to lead me to the cupboard where we keep the arnica oil for such occasions. After I treated myself, he stayed by my side, until I could see clearly.I am learning that angels come in all sizes, and may even drag blankets around.See More

Pain and Healing

First, I would like to publicly thank Gail for writing this book. I have learned more about uncluttering my home and mind in the past week than in all my life previously. You have given me the tools to let go of junk and indecision. Thank you.Second, as I have been reading through the book, I have found all sorts of emotions and ideas locked in my thinking that I didn't even know were there. Thoughts of not deserving my husband's and family's love. Thoughts of not being pretty to be worth the…See More

"Angela, I am so happy for you. I know that we are complete strangers, but finding this book has helped me to sort through so many little things, that I have been undecided over for years. It is such a blessing. Looking forward to your next post."

Looking Forward to a Wonderful Journey

I am so glad I did! It showed up yesterday, and I began reading.I have been working on making over my house now for seven weeks. This week I was working on the Master Bedroom. Since that is where the book began, I dived right in. With in an hour, most of the room had been decluttered, using Gail's simple…See More
