#nonscalevictory Just a month ago I could fit into these skinny jeans!!! I remember I was so frustrated cuz I'd been working hard. Just one month more of hard work & here we are!!! Don't ever give up!!! Hard work does pay off!!! If you don't know where to start, I can help with that!😘💜🙌🏼
We literally move over a year ago and I just now found this unpacked box. It has my favorite clock I've been searching for, for months. A silly fact about me I love decorating with clocks but I never set them or change batteries and I never change my clocks for day light savings. I have a phone to tell me the time.
3 choices for the path to sweet freedom. 🌈 ⛈ 🌈
Break away from:
1️⃣Societies expectations. [Don't be afraid to go against the grain simply because it is unfamiliar to others.] 2️⃣Dysfunctional dynamics [Disconnect from toxic people and relationships]
3️⃣The damaging inner thoughts [the ones that say you aren't good enough. The ones that ask you who you think you are, etc]
Overall, evaluate current scenarios, behavior, relationships and thoughts.
Get it on paper, try to come from a brutally honest and unbiased point of view.
Bonus tip: For best results don't forget to MODIFY behavior.
#Springclean your values, behaviors, and relationships. It's time to #declutter , my friends. ❤️🌎💋
🌸🌼🌸🌼Yassss it's definitely that time of year when a little EXTRA TLC (elbow grease) needs to happen around the home. Like my mom would always say, "Clutter just holds you down and prevents God to make room for growth in your life." Happy Cleaning! 🌸🌼🌸🌼#spring#springtime#springcleaning#declutter
Spring IS my favourite season 💚 .
There is something so incredibly rewarding about spending the day out drinking in the fresh air, soaking up the sunshine, getting my hands dirty, and clearing up my outdoor space!
An often overlooked layer of decluttering is removing what doesn't bring you joy OUTSIDE, as well!
Another bed cleared of the unwanted lava rock, MANY trees/plants trimmed, plenty of weeds plucked, and as soon as #thehubs gets home from work, with the truck, the 'castoffs' will be cleared away!
Now I think that I will take a cue from my assistant, #sweetlilrip - and take a moment to sit and rest, as we DID put in a hard day's work! .
Happy Sunny Friday to you!
Much like the weather, our weekend is just starting to heat up! 🔥☀️💥_____
Start your home search off right by joining #TheJasonSaftTeam this weekend at any of our open houses. We look forward to having you! @compass #StagedToSell
You’d be surprised how much freedom comes with simplifying your life. Another 20 items got decluttered today and I will soon be finished! I have decluttered so much by now that my husband is worried that he will be going too soon😁......but don't worry I will keep him, he sparks not only joy but love😉❤
Clean brushes ✨ Riding the nesting wave and continuing to declutter the house. Bit by bit. Feels good to get rid of the make up and products I no longer use and start fresh. Meanwhile, the goodwill boxes are starting to cumulate. 😳 #makeup#springcleaning#declutter#goodwill
Pretty happy about how much I have sorted out from my paperworks! Will continue tomorrow and hopefully finish the rest! I keep reminding myself though that I have a chest of drawers of stuff that I need to sort out aswell, but at least now the oldest stuff has been sorted (and mostly thrown away) xD *giving myself thumbs up*
Spring Fling Day 28: Bathing Suits - Now that summer is almost here, it’s time to fling any bathing suits that are too worn out to wear again, don’t fit anymore or just aren’t flattering to your body type. If the suits are still in good shape, donate them. If not, toss them in the trash. Bonus points if you fling old, worn out coverups too.
Now go flinging! Please come back and tell me how many bathing suits you were able to fling today. #organize#springfling

Nothing's better than an organized pantry that matches your daily life. When conquering your pantry make sure to break down your belongings into broad categories that fit the way you actually eat and cook 🌟#lifebeautifullyedited 📸 via @glitterguide
How did I save time this week? By using the library's book hold service! I hear about a book I'm interested in, request it online and viola...it awaits me at the library! (And yeah I may have slightly overdone it on the amount of books this week...if anyone needs me I'll be reading!) #booknerd#bookworm
One of my favorite color combinations. I also love seeing people who aren't afraid to use a little color in their homes. As my dad once told me, "Life's too short not to be colorful!" ⠀
These are the colors we chose for our wedding last spring. We renamed them: Rose & Gin+Tonic⠀

Phase one: complete. My hall is scary. Removed every single thing from her room except the books (will do the whole house of books later. Already intimidated...). Funny thing is, both kids have been happily playing in her empty room for like 20 minutes. If that doesn't prove that a lot of our stuff is unnecessary... 😜
They're definitely jumping on the bed, though. Hoping to avoid the ER. 👍🏻
Lunch break. 🍴
Really liked this book. We are all inundated with STUFF. Not just the physical clutter that weighs us down but the stress of an overbooked schedule and the weight of life that sometimes feels oppressive. This book had practical lessons on how to purge, set limits, value quality over quantity, value real relationships, and REST. Recommend it to anyone who knows how to organize but needs a reminder about the fact that happiness is not found in objects. This book will encourage you and mentally prepare you to LET STUFF GO.
#unstuffed#declutter#yourhome#yourmind#yoursoul "The only way to become truly unstuffed is to accept the amazing, incredible, unlimited, and totally undeserved grace we've already been given and stop trying to fill that hole ourselves. Grace is the answer we are often too stubborn to believe and too proud to receive. " -Ruth Soukup
This drastic before and after only took us 2 hours to complete! Not only did we thoroughly clean, but we filed paper work, sorted everything and created homes for all of it. There is no team like the House of Help team!
Day 28 - I focused on the decor items in my craft room for the #minsgame today. I love Coca~Cola collectibles however I am expecting my next craft room will be much smaller and probably in a shared space so I won't have room for all these decor items. I kept only what I truly love and may revisit the collection again later to pair it down even more. I also purged a magnetic white board, magnets, and some miscellaneous decor items. All going into the garage sale pile! #happylife#declutter#minimalism#happyhome#decluttering#toomuchstuff
Practising what I preach....3 new tops for me to the left and saying goodbye to 3 old tops to the right 😍
A good way to curb the urge to SHOP, SHOP, SHOP after a declutter is to ask yourself...."What will I give away to make space?" Saved me from many an impulse purchase 🤔
When Malia was a newborn I remember feeling this pressure to get back to "normal life" as soon as possible. It caused a lot of unneeded stress. This time around with baby Lewis I promised myself to have a much longer grace period.
The newborn phase goes by so quickly. Whenever my mom gives a gift to a new mom she includes the following poem: Babies Don't Keep by Ruth Hulburt Hamilton. ➖"Mother, O Mother, come shake out your cloth,
Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
Hang out the washing, make up the bed,
Sew on a button and butter the bread.
Where is the mother whose house is so shocking?
She’s up in the nursery, blissfully rocking.
Oh, I’ve grown as shiftless as Little Boy Blue,
Lullabye, rockabye, lullabye loo.
Dishes are waiting and bills are past due
Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo
The shopping’s not done and there’s nothing for stew
And out in the yard there’s a hullabaloo
But I’m playing Kanga and this is my Roo
Look! Aren’t his eyes the most wonderful hue?
Lullabye, rockaby lullabye loo.
The cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow
But children grow up as I’ve learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs; Dust go to sleep!
I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep." ➖The work will ALWAYS be there. There is always something that needs to get done. But sometimes the most important thing we can do is scrap the task list. Double tap if you agree.
The sun is coming out! Here is my sunglasses solution...I found this awesome antique soda box that Trevor painted my fave color and wall-mounted to hold my sunglasses. Then, he made a custom key hook board. A perfect grab-and-go area for these on-the-road essentials. #AtHomeWithVicki#DreamAcres
April "Clear your Clutter, Clear your Mind". Replace Tupperware with Glassware instead. Purchase same brand containers for uniformity and stacking purposes. Buy only what you need. You will stay organized, find lids easily because they will now be attached to the container and you will be helping the environment by not tossing out grimy tupperware🌎 that can't be recycled. Frigoverre is a great brand👍🏻 OrganizeMeSally.com
