You’re Not Alone

You are not alone if you have a fear of letting go of your clutter. Many people have a hard time letting go of their stuff, even when it doesn’t bring them joy. Have you been holding onto stuff that’s cluttering up your life? Would you love to have a turn-around about how you feel concerning your stash of stuff? Read what Emily York did that soothed her fear of letting go and gave her the courage to be free of it. All she did was change her mind and she saw her stuff with a new perspective.

Dear Pam,

As I was watching the S.H.E. De-Junking DVD and I heard you or Peggy say that people tell you all the time they are afraid to let go of their stuff because as soon as they do, they will need it. At that point I said to the television screen, “Amen sisters!” Because that is exactly how I felt. THEN one of you said, “You can let go of your stuff and never have to worry again, because it is at the Goodwill and you can go there and buy it back or just visit it!!”

I realized I’d been running
my own personal version of a Goodwill Store!

Well I was on the floor! I’d never looked at it that way. I loved the visit you took us on to the Goodwill and when I saw you both with a cart filled with stuff that looked just like the stuff I was hording and you’d just gone there to “visit” yours, I realized I’d been running my own personal version of a Goodwill Store only not as organized as they are.

Thank you for letting me see my stuff in a new light and thank you for finally changing my mind about the clutter that has clogged my life for too long totally out of fear. I am going to let Goodwill store my stuff! I am 42 years old and I am not too old to fly! I am taking your advice. I intend to be clutter free when I am 43! Go ME.

Forever thankful,
Emily York

Peggy and I had been in over 100 homes across the country to help the families get a handle on the clutter in their homes when we made that video Emily wrote about and the more we saw, the less we wanted.

Hearing that statement of fear from almost every person in those homes, the answer came to me in the shower! We really don’t have to be afraid to let go of what doesn’t make us happy because we can always get it back or go visit it.

The thing that happens is, once we get rid of the clutter, we don’t want any part of it back. Don’t let material stuff come between you and your peace of mind. Learn how to let go and live as if you are on vacation because you deserve it. The SHE De-Junking DVD or download is now available and with a bonus. When you purchase the video you get the 3×5 card file system with it. The file is in Word, so you can customize the cards to work for your family.
