Renee K. told me today she lost 250 lbs. this week–in clutter! She’s on a roll and ready to do more.

Kitchen Clearing

What is clutter?

Things you do not use or love

Things that are untidy or disorganized

Too many things in too small a space

Anything unfinished

Keeping this in mind as you clear out your kitchen will make it easier I think.

Other questions to ask yourself are:

When was the last time I used it?

Do I really need this many?

Do I need all these tools?

Do I have another tool that will work just as well and do more jobs.

If you come upon something that causes negative emotions then it’s probably best to get rid of the item unless you can’t for some reason. In that case, you need to resolve your feelings. It’s not healthy for your mental state to be reminded of negative experiences or emotions.

All the best, jen


It was so much fun to be with everyone there tonight. It was great fun to share ideas and laugh and joke with one another. I’m very excited to get going on the clutter clearing or space clearing. I think I prefer the term Space Clearing. What do y’all think?

I can’t wait for my class to be done at the end of this week so I can get focused on the clearing! I believe I will post the area on which we will be focusing on Sunday every two weeks and see how that goes. That way, if you’re like me, when Monday comes and you’re ready to get to work you’ll have your “marching orders”.

Jenn B. sent me the LDS Splash link that has alot of helpful info. She particularly likes it for the FHE  lessons they have. FHE is something the bishop wants us to be focusing on this year. For many of the goals in the Faith In God, Duty to God, and Personal Progress programs the kids are supposed to present a Family Home Evening lesson on a specific topic. I think it would be cool to find lessons that go along with each of those requirements. For instance, for Faith In God, Gabe needed to read about the First Vision and then do a FHE lesson on it. Serena had a packet she’d done at an activity that made it so easy for him to do but covered everything that was necessary. There are probably websites out there, such as this one, that probably have that.

By the way, we talked a little about honey tonight. I have a great local source for honey at a good price.

We get it from Reisinger Apiaries in Emmett. It’s also called Fit to Eat Brand Honey in the stores. They deliver, and if you wash and save the containers they will refill them for about a dollar less per container than new ones so that helps a lot.
