Podcast cover
Read more
Decluttering seems to have a permanent spot on our to-do lists, and there’s no end to the advice about how to do it “right.” But bottom line, what’s right is what actually works for you. After all, the goal isn’t to declutter, or even to have a perfect, clutter-free home; it’s to make room for a more peaceful, distraction-free life.

In Episode 109 of Edit Your Life, Christine talks to professional organizing consultant Rachel Rosenthal about the difference between “neat” and “organized,” and move on to small, doable ways to integrate decluttering into your daily routine. They discuss handling paper and toy clutter, organizing your closet (no, you don’t have to empty it first), and managing food waste, and Rachel shares her favorite organizing products and tips for maintaining your organized home.
