When we think of the July 4th Holiday, we think of celebrating our freedom, picnics, and fireworks. As a home organizer I think of freedom from clutter. One way to free yourself of clutter is to become a minimalist.
“Minimalism” is a buzz word you may have read about recently. Joshua Becker, author of The More of Less and The Minimalist has a unique philosophy on what he calls “excess consumption.” Becker is a proponent of minimalism and living abundantly with less.
We are bombarded by social media that entices us to buy, buy, buy and to acquire more, more, more. But Becker points out that at some point we can no longer satiate our desire for more.
“More” is not enough and “more” does not bring us happiness,” says Becker.
According to Becker, we become burdened by managing and maintaining our ever-increasing mountain of too much “stuff.” Our clutter distracts us from our purpose, mission, goals, and our authentic selves. We are too often afraid to part with our possessions because we think we are validated by what we own. We forget that we are important for who we are, not our possessions.
Joshua Becker suggests a few simple, practical and effective approaches to adopting a lifestyle of minimalism.
If you want to feel the joy of being liberated from clutter but don’t know how or where to start, call me. You may think that parting with things will be difficult and painful, but my clients all say the same thing when we are finished their project:
"I feel so much less stressed and overwhelmed." In other words, "I feel free from clutter."

How I Helped Jacki
How I Helped Jackie
How I Helped Jackie
Problem: Jackie's living room was so cluttered there was no place to sit and she was too embarrassed to have anyone over to her home.
Solution: We put the pile of items that were intended for donations in the front seat of her car. The rest of the clutter was put away where it belonged or was taken to the curb. She dropped the items off at the thrift shop the next day.
Outcome: Jackie was now free to invite friends and family over. No more feeling ashamed of her home. After the clutter was eliminated and Jackie's husband's tools were put away, the atmosphere in their home was more relaxing and peaceful.
How I Helped Wanda
Problem: Wanda’s storage area was such a mess she had given up on ever getting it under control. The room had become "Chuck's room" where "stuff" was tossed "just for now."
Solution: We eliminated most of the clutter by discarding or donating the things she did not need to keep. The rest was categorized and put into clearly labeled containers.
Outcome: Wanda was liberated from the storage room from hell. "Chuck" no longer had a room.

Sorting 6500 pounds of food donations for Bucks Knocks Out Hunger at Bucks County Community College for United Way while 125,000 shelf stable meals were assembled in the cafeteria.
Keep your eye out for these BKO Hunger canisters around town to help United Way reach their goal of raising $85,000 to support the local food pantries and provide fresh produce, milk, eggs and cheese to the food insecure of Bucks County. Donations can be made through their website: www.bucks.org/bkohunger.
These facts are disturbing; 9% of Bucks County residents including 16% of children in Bucks County are "food insecure." That includes kids who rely on the school lunch program and Seniors and our Veterans who too often need to choose between paying for food, utilities or prescription drugs. If this isn't acceptable to you, please support BKO.
