Hi lovelies,

Is your life clutter free yet? If not I hope it's well on it's way or has been schedules as a priority! This is the final blog post in A Clutter Free Life series, however, it's not all the content. What the?? Let me explain...

In my FREE resource library I have added 3 more pages of content. That's right, not 1, not 2, but 3! Each one ties in with the 3 main aspects of this series, soul, house, and blog. If you want to get access to this awesomeness simply click here and just sign up! Then you will be able to log in to the library whenever you want via the 'login' button in my menu bar.



To end off this amazing series full of advice and knowledge, I wanted to get some expert opinions and strategies. All of the experts that have contributed are the pros in either keeping a clutter free, minimalistic blog, house, or soul. I hope having the opinions and ideas of other people (not just myself) gives you the chance to find strategies that work for you and confirm ideas you might have on organizing your life. 

The Question:

What is your best tip/s to achieving a clutter free lifestyle?

The Experts:

Jess Keys from Blogging 4 Keeps 


I am definitely not the most "clutter-free" person as my fiancĂ© would describe me as a walking tornado at times, but in terms of staying organized with my blog/work, I like to use the Pomodoro method, which is essentially time periods of 90 minutes working, and 30 minute "breaks" which are supposed to be non-work related activities–I clean the house, do laundry, get a quick workout in, etc. This makes me be productive in both work and life! 

I also am a fan of the Kon-Mari mindset–if something doesn't bring me joy, I get rid of it! I'm pretty ruthless in getting rid of things and my closet is actually pretty minimal most of the time because I clean it out often!

When deciding to keep or toss anything, consider 3 things: "is this useful, beautiful or sentimental?"  If none of those things, it's time for it to go.


McKinzie Bean from Moms Make Cents


My best tip for keeping my blog organized is to have a system. It takes longer to get systems set up at first, but they will save you so much time in the long run. I personally love to use Trello to keep things organized for my businesses. I have a board on Trello that is my central hub for my site. On this board I keep information that I frequently use, like affiliate links, swipe copy, workflows, testimonials etc. It makes it so much faster to be able to pop into Trello and grab what I need, than to be searching all over Google drive or even worse...my note book.


Megan Rutell from Page Flutter



I struggle with physical clutter and task clutter. For physical clutter, the biggest habit that has helped me is avoiding unnecessary purchases. It takes consistent effort, but each time I think about buying something, I ask myself if there is another item already in my home that can fulfill the same purpose. I also keep a permanent donation box near the front door to remind me to donate the items I’m no longer using. 


Task clutter is much more difficult for me to handle. I tend to over-commit, and I don’t like delegating. Staying organized often means becoming ruthless with eliminating things from my schedule. If the task is not essential, it doesn’t belong on my to-do list. Every time I put something on the list, I ask, “Does this move me toward my goals?” If not, I eliminate the task. It’s clutter and will only distract me. 



Thank you to all the amazing people who contributed, go show them some love! Now I hope that this series had been of some value to you and you get something out of it.

Lots of love,
