An interview my Assistant conducted with one of my clients. What impresses me about this client is her practicality and acceptance in letting go. She has inspired me to let go of books that I haven’t looked at in four years!
Well it’s really anything I’m not using. I’ve always felt really connected to books, but there is no real purpose to keeping them. It’s a hassle when you’re trying to move, and how do you really store them? I realized that I’d wanted to keep them to remember that I’ve read them, but there are other ways to keep track of that.
What other things are you getting rid of?
My husband’s old tools, and things of his that I don’t use. I’m also looking to move into a smaller house because we only use a few rooms as it is. I would rather just have the things that we use on a daily basis. My girls’ clothes need to be paired down; laundry always takes up a lot of time, drawer space is low. Maintaining clothes just takes a long time.
How did you get connected with Lynne?
I found her online, and we started with my basement. Lynne said it wasn’t that bad but it was significant for me. A lot of boxes hadn’t been unpacked since we moved. My family are all really organized people and I didn’t know if they would understand to help me.
Lynne is really understanding, compassionate and non-critical. She really motivated me to keep going.
