  1. This apparently really motivated me as this past weekend, we did a massive purge in our home. Drawers and closets that hadn’t seen the light of day for a VERY long time were dealt with, and it’s amazing how much momentum helps- once you figure out that one drawer really only takes 15 minutes or so, then you know exactly which one to tackle next. I appreciate the humor in your episodes- I need a good laugh sometimes and this is a good place to find it :). Thanks for the wonderful work you ladies are doing!

    1. It really is amazing how much can get done when we are “feeling it” and have momentum! I have so many areas that are living in the dark and need to be brought out and dealt with. Thanks for commenting Laura! We really appreciate it!
