Live lighter. Live freer. Live a bigger life with less.
In Declutter Like a Mother, Allie Casazza comes alongside you to explore:
Why decluttering calms anxiety in your heart and lessens tension in your relationships.How to ensure your house is working for you, not against you.Why kids thrive when they’re not overwhelmed with options.How to make time, when you feel you don’t have time, to declutter.
Allie Casazza was tired of feeling it was her against the laundry in her home. She wondered if somewhere beneath her frantic days and the mountains of toys in the playroom she would ever find joy and peace in motherhood. Then she discovered the abundance . . . of less.
As she purged her home of excess stuff, Allie discovered a lifestyle that strengthened her marriage, saved her motherhood, and helped her develop her gifts in a way that no amount of new kitchen appliances or new organizing system ever could.
Research studies show a direct link between stress levels and the amount of physical possessions people have in their homes, and Allie has seen that truth play out in her own life and in the lives of hundreds of thousands of other moms she has mentored through her business and online courses. She proclaims:
You don’t need a home that’s perfect. You need a home that’s lighter. Discover less stress, more space. Less chaos, more peace. Less of what doesn’t matter, so you have room for what matters most of all.
In this instructive debut, Casazza, host of the Purpose Show podcast, brings her signature warmth to the topic of how to welcome joy and calm into one's life by getting rid of stuff. As a young mother, Casazza spent her days scrambling to maintain a home filled with belongings rather than being the wife and mother she wanted to be. By decreasing the number of items overwhelming her, Casazza not only fashioned a relaxed home and a happier family; she built a multimillion-dollar business helping others especially mothers learn how to minimize the clutter in their lives. Casazza helps readers work through the emotional challenges of getting rid of stuff ("If everything is sentimental, then nothing actually is") before providing tips on how to find time to declutter and providing workable solutions for freeing up space. Maintenance ideas for keeping a family from falling back into old habits (such as consistently recycling and donating toys to save space and avoid overattachment) rounds out the plan. While many of these commonsense ideas are not new, Casazza's understanding manner and realistic view of family life make her approach refreshing. Readers looking for straightforward advice on streamlining one's possessions will get much from this reassuring, sensible road map.
Just makes sense to live a simpler life with less stuff!
