Tackling the Clean-to-Clutter Cycle

I’ve got clutter on the brain.

Last week’s post, about home organizer Amy Thomas and my ongoing efforts to organize my home — with her help — was a summary of this long-term quest for a more stream-lined life. After returning last week from a month of travel, it’s time to unpack and work towards some kind of equilibrium again. 

I revisited my audio interview with Amy from this summer (before I began this de-cluttering process).  

Listen to my conversation with Amy: 


Amy’s philosophy is to focus on what you want from your home and your life, not what you don’t want. You start with a vision and you keep working to reach it. It’s a process, a work in progress. Your house and your life will never be perfect, but they can be closer to how you envision them.
