    Nic Bryan is a wife, mum, teacher, artist and one of our Head, Heart and Home course members. When she shared recently in our Head, Heart and Home Community about the impact decluttering has had on her ability to get creative and produce incredible artworks out of second hand and recycled materials, we just knew we had to find out more!


    Amy caught up with her recently and got to hear Nic's journey about how experiencing freedom by decluttering lead her to unlock a whole new part of herself and step into becoming an amazing artist with a passion for the environment.


    In this episode we;

    ● Learn who Nic is, what she does and a little bit about her decluttering journey;

    ● Hear some of Nic's tips to other artists and creatives for getting re inspired;

    ● Find out what led Nic to using and becoming so passionate about recycled items in artwork;

    ● Highlight the importance of utilising natural limits and containerisation (is that a word?!) to your advantage when organising art supplies;

    ● Give practical examples of how families with kids can store their art and craft supplies;


    And so so so so much more...

Interesting and Inspiring!

I just found this podcast and I couldn't be more pleased! it's very cold here in Minnesota, United States and it's been a great listen while staying indoors and getting some decluttering done! the topics are relatable for me as a stay at home mom of 3 but also would be great for anyone wanting to learn and live a more intentional life! if you are looking for a new podcast this one is a great choice!

So Awesome

This podcast is THE BEST!! Always helpful and uplifting! It is about so much more than just decluttering. These girls have helped me become so much more aware of my mindset and habits around the things I own and buy!
I have reached maintenance level in the Kitchen and wardrobe. It's a great feeling!!
Keep up the awsome work .

My Sumthin Sumthin

When I lack motivation, I put on upbeat music (usually of the 90s pop variety) and tell myself to just do 5 things per song and then give myself permission to stop until the next song.Eg. put 4 dishes in the dishwasher or put away 5 clothes... This builds up momentum and after a while I stop counting and just keep going or I increase the goal, eg. putting away all the cutlery doesn't take much longer than 5 forks.

It doesn't sound like much but if a song is about 3min long then that adds up to about 100 things an hour. Also if I get distracted and miss a song then I can just restart at the next song, rather than feeling like a failure. :)
