    Thank you soo much for keeping your hands from covering your face or the screen ... your soft-spoken voice and facial expressions are endearing and encouraging as well ... you don't need your hands to express yourself (which can be distracting). Your face can express your meaning to your explanations. Thank you! I'm enjoying learning from you , even if you ARE my grandchildren's age ... I'm organized better now, down-sizing. and avoiding those shopping sprees ... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Your Mom must be proud of you ... I AM!

    My mom always told me ‘make your bed first thing in the morning and you will have a well made day”. Silly , I know, but it has stuck with me throughout the years and I passed it on to my children, who are passing it on to theirs. Happy to see it is not an “old fashioned” idea.

    Sometimes I come back from work and I’m not up to anything. Having a schedule does not work for me. Although I will set a timer and give myself fifteen minutes and no more on s particular room let’s it be bite size and not overwhelming. Also amazing what can be done. In the time. I often don’t see mess but giving it fifteen minutes I also find myself using my time much better.

    I gotta clean everyday cause my toddler is a storm. I walk around cleaning all day then do a big clean at night. I also have a messy teenage boy and a husband who won't take advantage of that if it takes less than a min tip. Lol!

    The best cleaning day I find is the last day of work. Come home from work, clean, that way you don’t have to lift a finger on your days off. You should relax on your days off. In fact, buy 🍕 on your cleaning day then you have one less thing to worry about (no making dinner that night).

    A great tip I've found is that when tidying you'll be more productive doing 20mins of a quick tidy rather than setting a day to do everything. X

    Folding clothes while watching TVclips. :) I don't have scheduled cleaning days. As a kid, Friday's were the obligated cleaning I hated Friday's. Having less just makes everything faster, easier and less tedious. It's a great way to live. So does anyone else have a hard time being in other people's cluttered homes, or with watching decor TVclips that are too cluttered?

    I have been on TVclip watching similar videos to this for the past hour, knowing very well I need to get up and tidy (queen of procrastination!) but something about having a childhood friend speak on this has urged me to get up and put on my current favourite podcast 'Happier in Hollywood', set a timer for an hour and JUST GET TO IT! ;) love your life and your tips! xox

    I started listening to podcasts during my runs (jogging). Always thought I wouldn't be able follow the conversation but to my surprise I quite enjoy it. My place can be deafeningly quiet sometimes, so I like listening to lectures or podcasts while I cook or clean... I find it very therapeutic.

    Nice to see/hear other like-minded minimalists as ourselves! I, personally assess my items seasonally rather than weekly ... Your suggestion with weekly assessments seems quite intriguing minimizing the overwhelming feeling of looking at bulk as a whole. Your other tips I already execute ... great minds think alike!! :)

    interesting topic,
    i mean we all wish we are more organised and it's amazing to realise that it 's all about small actions that we do every day! and with such an impact in our lives
    as we say: "a clear space means a clear mind '
