I think I did this backwards but I don’t even care!

By MrsBoquist - May 30 2020
Read more
I recently learned about Dana’s book “How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind” from a moms group/decluttering group I am in. I bought it an Audible and listened in two days and then moved on to her other book “Decluttering at the Speed of Life”. These two books inspired me so much that within a week I made two trips to my local Goodwill with my Honda Pilot packed and a whole bunch of other things trashed. It has felt so liberating and I loved Dana’s mentality on dishes, containers and the 5 minute clean so I decided to continue with the podcast... like I said, probably backwards but she has kept me so motivated to declutter, especially while we are stuck at home for Covid-19. I truly feel like we are kindred spirits! I immediately realized it when listening to her first book and realized we are basically the same person! I am excited to keep listening to the pod and having this support system that truly gets me.

I just like Dana!

I don’t have clutter issues but found her podcast after looking for organizing topics. I have learned tips that help keep my house in great daily shape. Running the dishwasher every day never occurred to me, but it totally works! I continue listening to this podcast even though most doesn’t apply to me because I just like Dana! She is real, honest and kind. She is someone I would love to be friends with. She is focused on family and God and I feel like we need more people like her in this world. Thank you for being you Dana!

I think I did this backwards but I don’t even care!

By MrsBoquist - May 30 2020
Read more
I recently learned about Dana’s book “How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind” from a moms group/decluttering group I am in. I bought it an Audible and listened in two days and then moved on to her other book “Decluttering at the Speed of Life”. These two books inspired me so much that within a week I made two trips to my local Goodwill with my Honda Pilot packed and a whole bunch of other things trashed. It has felt so liberating and I loved Dana’s mentality on dishes, containers and the 5 minute clean so I decided to continue with the podcast... like I said, probably backwards but she has kept me so motivated to declutter, especially while we are stuck at home for Covid-19. I truly feel like we are kindred spirits! I immediately realized it when listening to her first book and realized we are basically the same person! I am excited to keep listening to the pod and having this support system that truly gets me.

I just like Dana!
