Ep 11 Decluttering Chain Reaction
18:05

We discovered, almost by accident, the joy and satisfaction of a decluttering chain reaction.

Stay with me here, have you ever been cleaning out a closet or garage and find supplies for an activity you have long since stopped pursuing, scrapbooking anyone? You confess, most likely you won't be doing that activity anymore so you decide to donate it, BUT you may have a whole box of corresponding items you aren't aware of that could also be donated...see the chain reaction!
