What’s Keeping You from Letting Go? – 039
In episode 39 we discuss how it can sometimes be hard to let go of certain items as you start the decluttering process. There are some very common questions and obstacles that people face when decluttering, and in this episode we are going to help you walk through them.
I’m diggin’ the resort where John and I went snowboarding last week and Jenny’s diggin’ a Netflix TV show called After Life. Jenny’s win is related to taking some time off last week and my learn is related to taking some time off from one of my regular habits last week.
