Do You MUTTER While You DECLUTTER? August 17 Inspiration

Do You MUTTER While You DECLUTTER? August 17 Inspiration

Do you mutter while you declutter?  Maybe instead, you should shout with glee when you are free–of the mess you get rid of and the organization that replaces the clutter!   I’m reflecting on THIS event that happened earlier this year. Hubby Dave and I finally attacked a long overdue project in the kitchen. He replaced the old, leaky, drippy, rusty kitchen faucet with a bright, shiny, drip-free faucet AND spray nozzle, which I haven’t had since I moved in…
