We will be back at it May 5th 2021! Keep those ideas coming!
If you're ready to add some real plants to your home, and you're not a natural green thumb... this episode is for you.
Sometimes, I say the wrong things. This was one of those times. I got a negative review because of something I thought was funny, but someone else didn't think was funny. But this episode isn't about the review, it's about how I didn't notice something for 6 years and how sometimes we feel unappreciated at home when we are doing all the things.
Getting too focused on the big and flashy before and afters will bog you down. Focus instead on the tiny spark. Cheer others tiny sparks. Let's start a revolution with this way of thinking on social media. 
Struggling at the verrrry beginning of your journey? Ugh, that really sucks, my friend. It can be a tough place to be in if you're spinning your wheels. I promise it gets easier! I give you some juicy tips to help you out at the beginning, even if you're feeling like you'll never make a dent.
What happens when you have already minimized all the things in your tiny bathroom and you still can't use it? You focus on function and organizing. Shayla (a cozy minimalist community member) sent me this conundrum. I figured she wasn't alone, so I created a podcast with solutions for her tiny bathroom.  You can see photos here: https://www.cozyminimal.com/small-bathroom-solutions
Do you find you aren't decluttering but simply moving stuff from room to room or shelf to shelf? In this episode, I introduce you to a real life phase that is frustrating for lots of people: Stuff Shuffling. I give you three tips to get you moving forward with your process. I got you, friend!
If you aren’t ready to let something go... DON’T. Some feedback I received from a lady that felt I was enabling people to stay cluttered. I address that today.
Meal Planning tips to help you simplify what your cooking each day. If you want a deeper dive into my own meal planning process, which includes inventory of what we have and deciding which meals we eat, and even how to decide what quantities to buy. Head over to the website: www.cozyminimal.com/meals
I get asked this a lot! How do you help your kids clear their stuff. I’ll give you three general areas to focus on as well as some juicy tips to guide your kids without pulling out your hair or sneaking their stuff out in a garbage bag.
Built off a weekly post that I have done with our Facebook community for 5 years. Let’s tackle one small portion of your stuff and get you some momentum to move forward. Little by little - a little becomes a lot.
The extreme minimalists or elite minimalists might roll their eyes at this episode... but for the rest of you, this will be game changing for you and your journey to your own level of enough.
Let’s tackle one small portion of your stuff and get you some momentum to move forward. Little by little - a little becomes a lot.
I was scrolling through Instagram and I saw a cute get to know you reel... it reminded me of a client years ago, who’s clutter conundrum changed the course of my life and business.
Let’s spend five minutes decluttering something easy to help you build momentum and clear some excess stuff outta your home!
Do you ever feel like you have the worlds longest to-do list but never get anything done?! Me too friend, me too. Well, years ago, I stumbled upon this concept and it has completely changed my ability to get stuff done! I hope it helps!
The foundational concepts that I have built my signature clutter clearing process on. But these are quick excerpts of 5 minutes or less. I don’t like babbling to fill up time. Short, sweet and to the point. Just like me. If you’re tired of the concept “just focus on your own stuff” and you want your family to start decluttering. Try this instead.
Happy New Year!!! I don’t do resolutions anymore. Why they don’t work and can be harmful. And I also give you two other options, instead.

Four years of this podcast. I’ve decided to let loose a little more. Some of you will like it, some of you might even love it. And I know some will hate it. I’m doing this season for me. I don’t want this to become a chore that I avoid like I have in seasons past. I want to enjoy doing this again. In fact, I want to LOVE doing it so that I do it more! The reason being, is that it will get to those of you that need it the most. I’m not going to be perfect. I will fumble. I hope you stick around. And I hope I we can grow this audience even more to continue spreading the cozy minimalist movement further. Thank you for being here. Angie

I’m reflecting on my year. A little look inside what happened in our neck of the woods and why we left the home we loved and instead found our forever home in the middle of a crazy and uncertain time. I also leave you with what I am doing for the future in 2021! Hold on to your hats, friends.... this is gonna be a wild episode!
