The Best Advice for Decluttering

Even though it doesn’t quite feel like spring yet, my internal clock still has the urge to purge my home of unnecessary stuff: toys, clothes, expired food, my husband’s third boat, you name it. As I read stories in magazines and websites offering spring cleaning tips, all I keep thinking about is the cover story from the last issue of Breathe that I put out before I was [dry hard gulp] fired. If I had been braver back then, I would’ve shared what that experience was like. Maybe now I will. But not, like, right this second. Right now, I want to share the best cleaning advice that I keep coming back to every time I get overwhelmed with clutter. Because it really does make sense and it’s totally doable! I was lucky enough to have Kath Younger from Kath Eats Real Food write this piece. She takes very specific, relatable problems in different rooms of the house and then shares her solutions. Breathe has since folded so you can’t read this story in website form, but you can read it as a digital magazine via issuu. Just flip to page 18. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Rocking out my editorial swan song.

The last issue I put out as Editor-in-Chief of Breathe Magazine came out this week. I just picked up a copy this morning and reading through it was bittersweet. But I must say I went out with a bang, not a whimper. It’s a great issue! Kath Younger, healthy living blogger of Kath Eats Real Food fame graces the cover.

If you live in one of Breathe‘s distribution areas in the Mid-Atantic and Southeast (DC, MD, WV, VA, NC, SC, GA), pick one up! If you don’t know where to find it, contact the Breathe office. Otherwise, you can find it online here (although it’s never the same as feeling the pages between your fingers… I just love print magazines).
