This episode kicks off a month on the podcast focusing on clutter, impulsive spending, and understanding our behaviors around money and physical space.

Eliza shares her journey that began in 2018 as a stay-at-home mom and evolved into a career dedicated to helping moms declutter and organize their homes. She discusses the importance of starting with the first speed bump of the day when tackling decluttering tasks and emphasizes the need to make intentional decisions about the items in our spaces. The conversation touches on the emotional aspects of decluttering, particularly dealing with guilt from past purchases and the concept of "sunk costs."

Katy and Eliza also explore strategies for managing impulse spending and the value of taking a pause before making new purchases. Eliza introduces the idea of the "F that list" and the significance of focusing on items that genuinely improve day-to-day life.

Throughout the episode, both speakers draw parallels between financial habits and decluttering practices, offering listeners practical advice to handle both areas more effectively.
