Welcome to the club, mama.
We are so glad you found us because we are moms like you, seeking relief from the overwhelming amount of clutter in our homes.
We feel you, and we’ve got your back.
Here at Motherhood Simplified we know how it feels to constantly struggle with the overwhelm, stress, and burden of managing the stuff in our homes.
We know that you need you need steps to follow and support in making those steps happen.
We want to be your support system in figuring this out – it’ll be the next best thing to having someone come do it with you in real life.
I’ll be your host so let me introduce myself.
Why is Krista the best person to declutter your home with?
Well, I’m a mom just like you who has done it.
I don’t teach decluttering in theory – I will never ask you to do something in your home I haven’t done, or am not willing to do myself.
In 2013 my husband and I moved our family of five from Alaska to Florida with only one suitcase per person.
While I don’t think your goal should be to get rid of it all – I will teach you how to get honest with yourself about what you do have, and how to let go of what isn’t serving you.
Since 2013 we have moved several more times, and have found a comfortable in between of drowning in clutter and having just a suitcase of clothes and toys.
My core beliefs are to be kind, and be supportive and to create the life and home you want, no matter what that looks like.
The Motherhood Simplified community was built on this foundation of experience, passion and support. You are not alone in your quest for simplicity or the struggles that come along with it.
If any of this has resonated with you – you’ve found your tribe and we are here for you!
I can’t wait to get to know you!
I chose to participate in the seven day Motherhood Simplified challenge because I was already struggling with decluttering and organization in my home. My husband and I were already thinking about a bigger home when “surprise!” we were pregnant again. Trying to fit the need for 5 bedrooms and an office into a 3 bedroom no office home… no fun. So I pounced when I saw this challenge! Group support? Organization ideas? Heck yes!!
I was hoping for some organization ideas. I thought we were already living pretty lean in the “things” department… but I was oh so wrong. I got WAY more than I ever imagined! I met the most amazing women who were willing to open up their hidden “problem areas” on video and share their weaknesses and strengths! I learned I didn’t have an organization problem – I had too much stuff to keep consistently organized. Once I was able to look at my home with a new perspective, follow the challenge, then my home really started to fall into place. And my soul into peace!
The best outcome (so far, because let’s be honest, I live with a hoarder haha) has been our kitchen. There’s no pile up of dishes, no “where the heck am I gonna put this now,” and even my hubby is on board. (HUGE win!)
This experience has me so jazzed about my home again. It’s a calming space, and I’m no longer constantly looking at projects I need to get done but don’t have the energy to do. I really enjoyed the group support and ideas too! It was super cool to see I’m not the only one with spice cabinet issues and to visually see via video how the super organized have all their stuff arranged. 12/10 would recommend to a friend!
After finishing I was able to bake in my kitchen WITH my kids & not worry about a avalanche when they got ingredients. I was able to straighten up toys ONCE a day & not break an ankle all day on toys. That my 6 year old was able to manage her toys better. My husband can clearly find stuff the first time now & doesn’t come home to a trashed house. I feel like I have more time to do the fun parts of motherhood.
I can’t stop talking about it to all my mom friends. It’s been such a life changing experience for me. Wish I would have known giving away my kids toys, & decluttering all my stuff in the house would help me feel less burdened by it all.
I started the Motherhood Simplified challenge because I have been trying to simplify my life lately and this was going to help me do that more systematically.
I did some of my own organizing and purging outside of the challenge but it definitely helped me finalize things.
It was fun! I liked having people to talk to about it and to watch others go through it too! I already have a couple friends in the group doing it too! My best friend posted that she completely did her daughters room!
