  • Hey Kate and Mike! Listened to this while I worked out and what a great idea. Love the idea of creating space to welcome the new in my life!

    I LOVE this!! This is the first time I have heard your podcast. You are both so funny and entertaining, while at the same time imparting really good info with a depth and sincerity and I really appreciate this! I will definitely be listening to more of your podcasts. You mentioned Ebay……Yes, PLEASE do a podcast soon on how to sell on Ebay, and other good online selling sites. I am in the midst of decluttering right now and I have some good things I want to sell online and I have no idea how to use Ebay!! I’ve gone to Ebay to try to learn how to do it and I don’t get it!! PLEASE do a podcast on how to sell on Ebay. Thank you!! :)

    • Kate Northrup

      Thanks so much for listening in Michelle! I’m so glad you liked the episode! We have the eBay one on our list for an upcoming episode so stay tuned! It will likely be in the fall!

    Thank you Kate and Mike. I am currently decluttering the house and this podcast was perfect for what I am dealing with. My husband and I recently moved our son and daughter in two separate rooms, are having an addition for a new pantry and laundry room. After that we will be having the house painted and a new roof done. Moving things around the house, I have been having a hard time figuring out, what to keep and what to let go. I am ready to simplify & create blank space. With a 10 year old daughter & a 6 year old son, it is difficult sometimes to giveaway items that remind you of when they were little. I am also finding that I don’t want to get rid of them because they are items that I never had as a child. The one thing I know is I am great at organizing but don’t like to let things go or give away. I am ready to move forward with the LESS! THANK YOU both for speaking the truth & sharing all this valuable information. ♡♡♡

  • Great you share the valuable information about moving packing. Moving is very big process. You share the great and useful blog. Thanks!
