What You’ll Learn:

This book will help you clear the cutter for good!  Julie takes a different approach by using the SHED process. Moving beyond throwing things out and walks you thru the pitfalls of de cluttering.

De clutter is identifying what’s obsolete and no longer serves you.

Organizing is designing systems that make  you more efficient where you are right now.

SHED stands for: 

  • Separate the Treasures
  • Heave the Trash
  • Embrace your Identity
  • Drive yourself Forward


Finding your Theme:  What is your  big picture?  What do you want to express or experience in the future?  What do you need to let go of and where are you heading?

Points of Entry!  

Clutter is not junk!  Clutter is an attachment to something you are struggling to release. Ask  yourself what does it represent?  Go in with love and tenderness for yourself.  

Being in the present moment!  

You can also use this process to evaluate your commitments,  schedule and habits!
