I don't mean to be disrespectful or anything, but don't your husband and kids ever help? it seems like there's constant mess and there's no way it's just you making it, but I never hear about them helping. why is this hard work delegated only to you?

Thats what I have always put in my daughters stocking! I never put useless crap in there. It's always either an orange or avacado and then candy and cards and pokemon stuff or whatever vinyl figure she is into at the moment! LOL

We got rid of our coffee table in the living room, when I realized that its chief function was to be the place we dropped things and then left them. Getting rid of that piece of furniture was a huge help in getting my living room clutter under control.

😲 I'm so glad I am hearing this now: that I will not be decluttering my house once and for all. I love your podcast. Even though I'm 5 years behind. 💜

I’ve really enjoyed Dana’s recent episodes. I mention her on my show sometimes. Check mine out once you’re caught up on a Slob Comes Clean. My show is called “Clean With Me.”

Here's another idea about what to do about the painting. Cut out the faces of your husband and his sister in a size that is easily frameable. Those two pieces will probably be a lot smaller and you can find a place in your house to display them. then throw the rest of the painting away! or take a high-quality photograph of each face in the painting, frame those and throw the painting away.

Why aren't your husband and kids helping you clean these huge messes? Are you the only one making the mess?

This episode is truly meaningful. Full of philosophies that I could apply surprisingly even on my career path apart from being organized. Being organized is extremely hard for me and I'm surprised why not more people talk about it or even nerd out with lets say with the thibgs that they buy to be file things, to be more organized, declutter, and cleaning. I used to be (all the time) the girl who wants to dig out that one rock at the very back of my shelf, but it's remarkable what the podcaster went through while she was going through the archaelogical dig. Thank you so much! And volunteering with your kids on archaelogical digs is one of the most exciting things a mom could do!

I loved this podcast up until this episode. Please educate yourself on the ongoing apartheid, ethnic cleansing, and occupation of Palestinians. I will no longer be listening to this podcast.
