American Declutterer shares my reflections on the hard work of my thirteen interstate moves and the tender work of clearing houses after four family deaths.
At the heart of decluttering a home lie our relationships.
Our stuff is tangled up with our relationship to our past and present selves, to our childhood and adult families, and with the communities to which we present ourselves. But also, the task of cleaning out metaphorical Aegean stables is made sweeter by having the company of fellow declutterers.
My dream for this work is to provide you this companionship by telling about the stories I found while clearing the dross from my home and my life while you strengthen your relationships through decluttering yours.
