4 Free Personalized Decluttering Plans Available

Sometimes the articles, suggestions, or challenges online just aren’t enough.

They don’t provide enough motivation or structure. Not enough of it applies to you.

You want something catered specifically to your stage of life.

Not some generalized plan that presumably works for most people.

You want detailed guidance for minimizing your very own clutter.

tranquility

That’s why I’m offering four people a FREE fifteen minute phone call with me.

Of course, you could call your sister to talk about all the clutter in your house, but what’s special about this is the fact that I’ve spent the last year:

  • reading articles
  • studying books
  • attending workshops
  • conducting interviews

to research what actually works. I’ve looked at habits and tried tons of strategies in my own life. As a reforming pack-rat myself, I’m still familiar with the struggles and excuses and am also very understanding of not wanting to get rid of certain items. The purpose of the call is not to convince you that an item you cherish is dumb and should be gotten rid of. The point is to help you decide if you cherish it enough to allow it to continue taking up space in your life. If the answer is yes, that’s fine!

Although fifteen minutes may not seem long enough to attack all of your clutter problems, we will use that time carefully.

To make sure you get the most out of the call, you will send me an email with two or three of your biggest questions as well as how many people you live with so that I can do any extra research ahead of time and organize what is most important for you to hear.

During the call, we will discuss:

  • solutions to your struggle
  • two or three baby steps to get you started decluttering
  • other resources you can use once you’ve finished those steps

You’ll probably want to take notes or even record the call. I’ll also send you one follow-up email to see how it’s going and send you any links to resources.

If you would like one of these four free coaching calls, sign up for my newsletter and please email the following information to mcstarbuck{at}gmail{dot}com:

  1. Two or three questions you have about decluttering/what you want to get out of the call
  2. Three times you think would work for you to talk in the next three weeks.
  3. Your preferred method for making the call (Cell Phone_ Skype_ Facetime_ Google Hangout_)
  4. How many people you live with (spouse_ children_ parents_ siblings_ friends_ etc) If I know a little about your living situation, I’ll have a better idea of what you can try and what you don’t need to bother with.

Please leave any questions you have in the comments below and share this rare opportunity with your friends. (I’m pretty sure I’ll never make this offer again! It takes a lot of time, and I want to mostly focus on helping as many people as I can. But I wanted to give you this chance in case you need that extra nudge to get going.)

Floating in the Dead Sea

You told me I was like the Dead Sea
You’ll never sink when you are with me

Whoa, I’m like the Dead Sea
The finest words you ever said to me
-The Lumineers, “Dead Sea

I can still see the small classroom where I learned about the Dead Sea. I’ve been able to float on my back since I was like three, but still the thought of floating without trying seemed like the coolest thing.

And it pretty much was.

It's like you're on a float! Plus, there are no fish or anything to be afraid of because nothing can live in all that salt!

I went in 2010, so the caption under the photo below is what I put as the description when I posted the picture to Facebook back when the experience was still fresh in my mind. Writing this post is like reliving it. Such a fun flood of memories!

I remember Mrs. Julianne telling our class years ago that it's so easy to float in the Dead Sea because of all the salt; it pretty much holds you up. Even though I thought she was exaggerating, I had always wanted to go since then...but she wasn't exaggerating. smile emoticon It was sooo fun & crazy!

Before we got in, we were informed not to swallow the water. And if it got in our eyes, we were to use the showers (right by the water line) immediately. You also use those showers as soon as you get out anyway. Which won’t be long because they also advise you to only stay in for a limited time.

All the minerals keep the water dense, which allows you to float. To learn more about the minerals and their affects, check out this quick read. There was a huge shop full of Dead Sea lotions and creams.

Apparently there are lots of minerals in the Dead Sea, hence the "facial" in this picture.

In these pictures, it looks like I’m just keeping myself afloat. It really is such a different feeling, though. You can even float while sitting, as you can see below.

It’s still surreal that I got to go.
