Revolution Thrift. My top pick for donations. Here’s why…

I proudly support San Antonio’s newest Thrift shop, Revolution Thrift. Revolution Thrift has been attracting attention from the community as many seek to support the vision of bringing hope and healing to the people of our city!
Founder Rachel Kelley, envisioned a local thrift store that would donate 100% of its profits to local charities in the community. In this way, the residents of San Antonio could give back to their city by simply donating and shopping.
I frequently say “clean and clear” or “purge, purge, purge”! I can tell you with bold confidence, this is where I send my surplus! And as many of you already know, it’s also where I send your surplus, if I’ve worked with you recently! I love to help my clients become free of the burden of owning too much stuff! Now I can confidently give to an organization that believes, as I do, in an holistic approach to changing lives in San Antonio! I fully believe in the ministries they’re partnered with: Christian Hope Resource Center, Grace House, and Ransomed Life, to name a few.
Consider how you can get involved in catching the vision of Revolution Thrift!
Shop. Volunteer. Donate. Give.
You won’t regret it!

Too Much!

How to Combat Clutter

Let’s face it, we own more than enough. Too much!  We have an over-abundance of items threatening to zap our energy and destroy our peace.  Sounds like an enemy needing to be dealt with! Here’s how to stand against it and will the battle! 

  1. Resist and reject incoming clutter.  Don’t let in! Refuse to allow catalogs and junk-mail into your home. Recycle bags, don’t collect them.
  2. Reduce existing items. Purge! Devote time to make a decision about each item.  For clothing and household items: keep only what you love and what adds value to your life.  For papers: keep only what you must for taxes, memorabilia and reference; it’s much less than you think you need!
  3. Request help.  Sometimes you just need motivating encouragement and someone to keep you on track and it is certainly alright to ask!
  4. Reward yourself. Treat yourself to a clutter-free indulgence for taking a step in the right direction to become free from owning too much stuff!

Reject the lies that speak defeat saying that it’s impossible or that you’re worthless. Stand on truth that you are a conqueror! Stand resolute; filled with confidence and hope!  Guard your mind with right thinking!

The source of true and lasting peace

Yes! I can work with you one-on-one in your most frustratingly disorganized space to conquer chaos and clutter.  To promote peace, purpose and productivity!

However, I can tell you where true peace can be found. From The Prince of Peace! I just love the scripture verse Isaiah 26:3 which says “You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind [both its inclination and its character] is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.” Amplified

Have a peace-filled day!

 

 

Keep Table Clear =Meals Together

Is your dining table a “catch all” surface used as a landing pad for incoming mail, backpacks, school books, unpacked grocery bags, laundry, and a myriad of other random items?  With a large family, trust me, I can relate!

As a professional organizer, I have the privilege of going into many homes to help others tidy up and bring order! One common trouble spot seems to consistently be the kitchen table. So, I felt it was a worthy topic for this post.  Any horizontal surface is a “hot spot” for clutter but the kitchen or dining room table are even more prone to collecting a hodgepodge of stuff simply because of their location! Think about it. The table is, in most homes, close to the laundry room, the kitchen and the front door!

I was invited into the home of a creative, young single mom who I’ll call Ann.  The scope of the project was to help bring order to the art supplies which seemed to be taking over the entire house.  As I was given the tour of the space, I noticed the kitchen table was hiding under a large pile of laundry among other many other things.  As we gained momentum, and reached that section of the home, Ann was motivated to “find the kitchen table.”  After our work was completed for the day, her table was cleared and Ann was inspired! She proudly proclaimed, “I’m going to make a special dinner tonight! My kids will be so excited!”  Ann texted me the following day to share that her children were most assuredly excited to have a meal together at the kitchen table! She shared that normally they made themselves sandwiches and ate in their rooms. The simple act of “finding the kitchen table” as Ann put it, made a powerful impact on her and her children!

Do you need to “find” your table?  May Ann’s story be an encouraging motivator for you to clear that critical space in your home and commit to keep it clear. Share family meals together.

When was that last time you ate a meal together around the table with your family?  Can’t remember?  Well, how about start fresh and let it be today!
