Amen Sister!

Dear Pam,

As I was watching the S.H.E. De-Junking DVD 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!!”  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 and I intend to be clutter free when I am 43!

Forever thankful,
Emily York

Pam here: 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 DVD 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.  The thing that happens is, once we get rid of the clutter, we do not 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 and 3×5 cardfile system is available at
