As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her Halloween looks. I was even more pleasantly surprised that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Head to our blog to find out how. Have you ever made your own costume? .

I will never forget the day we brought Elle home from the rescue. Super Dad took one look at her and said he was sure she was part lion... She was just missing the mane. So, when we had to decide what type of costume to get Elle this year for Halloween, I knew she HAD to be a lion! And @chewy had the perfect costume for her! Of course, Super Dad and Falynn had to get in on the action too. 
Now tell us, WHO WORE IT BEST?
Super Dad, Falynn or Elle?

Yesterday we visited a local farm and Falynn had the best time ever. She desperately wanted to hold a chicken but she didn’t know how. I love that she wasn’t afraid to ask for help. After learning the right way and trying a few times, she finally got the hang of it. I believe she held 3 different chickens. One 💩 on her shirt and we told her it was good luck. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

World Mental Health Day is a day that affects us all. Whether it’s you or a loved one, it seems as though more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental health and how it affects their lives. Since having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder myself years ago, I’ve connected with so many people through social media and am so grateful for this platform where we can reach out to others and let them know that they aren’t alone. What hurts my heart the most, is hearing about the amount of kids that deal with anxiety these days. I wish there was a magic button we could press to take away anxiety from our kids, so that they can enjoy their childhood, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Fortunately, there are steps we can take. I am grateful to @theanxietyhealer who has written another guest post on our blog today for those with teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety. She shares what signs to look for and when to seek help. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and pass it onto anyone with teenage kids. Let’s help in any way we can. .

Some people may call themselves a collector. They find something that they love and then buy one in every color.  As the years go on, those “collections” accumulate and although many of these things will eventually be removed from their home, they still take up a good amount of space. As I was kicking off our semi-annual declutter, where I go room to room and bag up as much as I can to donate to our local thrift store, I realized that there are 5 things I would love to be able to get rid of, that won’t quite fit in a bag.  But… if I had a big ass dumpster, I could just throw it all out of the window and never have to worry about it again.

Too Much Storage

Do you ever feel like the more you get rid of, the more new things accumulate?  Every room has some piece of storage furniture and every nook and cranny is filled to the brim with “collections” we thought we needed and couldn’t live without.  This morning, I had enough.  I walked into the kitchen, stepping over backpacks and small toys and entered a kitchen that has way too many dishes in the sink and even more in the cabinets. I realized that we probably don’t need 90% of our belongings. In fact, if I got rid of all of the storage furniture, there would be no where to stash this nightmare of a mess. Luckily, I have no problem with letting go… if I did, I’d probably find myself starring in an episode of Hoaders. What I wouldn’t give to donate it all, minus some precious family memories and just start over.  Can anyone lend me a big ass dumpster?

Too Many Worries

The amount of things I worry about in a day has gotten out of control. Most of them are things that will work themselves out but somehow, my mind inserts a coin, submits a worry and processes it all day long until I finally fall asleep.  It causes me not to sleep well and not take chances on new things. It would be great to declutter our worries or just switch that worrying side off completely. I’m done being a worrier.  I want to live my best life. Can anyone lend me a big ass dumpster?

Too Many Destroyed Things

Everywhere you go in our home, in almost every piece of furniture, you’ll find a pen mark, a rip, a giant hole or a stain. I owe those unwanted furniture accessories not to a pet, but to my beautiful daughters.  There is nothing that I own that my kids haven’t destroyed (or tried to).  And it’s not that they do it on purpose… they are just being kids. It makes me want to cover everything in that thick clear plastic that Grandmas use or trash it all and have us sit on the floor (possibly with that plastic coating so the floor doesn’t get destroyed too). Not forever, but just until they reach an age where they won’t accidentally spill their entire cup of juice every time they sit down or walk by way too close with an uncapped marker. Can anyone lend me a big ass dumpster?

Too Many Sales Calls

Yep, I’ve filled out that form for the do-not-call list, more than once.  But still, I get at least 5-6 calls a day from people trying to sell me on something I can’t live without. Boater’s insurance (I don’t have a boat). A mortgage (I don’t own a home). A gym membership (that’s extra funny). A college degree (I have one already that I’ll be paying off until I’m well into my 60’s). I even got a phone call the other day from a moving company, which is strange because we aren’t even moving!  Wouldn’t it be great to magically re-route all of those sales calls straight from your phone and into the trash? Can anyone lend me a big ass dumpster?

Too Many Toxic People

We all have those people in our circles don’t we? These toxic people disappear for no reason and reappear when they need something. They are too wrapped up in their own world to realize that they aren’t being a good friend or family member.  They’re narcissistic, judgmental or just plain mean. You try to come up with reasons why you haven’t told them how you feel out but you are just too nice to possibly hurt their feelings. Too bad we can’t swipe left on toxic people and have them disappear from our life list completely. Can anyone lend me a big ass dumpster?

If you could declutter 5 big things in your life that are weighing you down, what would they be? Comment below and let us know!

Pin for later >>

During our semi-annual declutter, I realized there are 5 things I want to get rid of, that won't quite fit in a bag.  But... if I had a big ass dumpster...

    My decluttering session is like my zen to me. It gives me new energy and spirit. And when I declutter offline, I also declutter online, unfriending and unfollowing toxic people.

  • Becca Wilson

    I really need to take the time to do some decluttering really soon. I get the urge so many times to just throw everything out!

  • Jennifer L

    i am currently decluttering my house of things I definitely don’t need. And also decluttering toxic people from my life. And it’s such a refreshing feeling.

  • Alyssa Dawson
    August 30, 2018

    I feel like I’ve been cleaning everything out lately! I usually go through phases of cleaning stuff, whenever I’m locked up in the house is when I’ve got all kinds of cleaning “messes”

  • aurora

    I can definitely relate to the too many toxic people part. haha People change and you definitely don’t want those types of people in your life.

    I need a summer cleanout STAT! I also advise people all the time declutter from toxic people!

    Decluttering is one thing I love to do. It is not only important to declutter all the things, but people too. I definitely have some people decluttering to do! Don’t even get me on the sales calls, I personally hit block number on the iphone the minute I get one of those calls so they can’t call me anymore LOL!

  • Joanna
    August 29, 2018

    I am one of those people who find it very hard to let go. When I moved a few months ago I had so many things that I had to give away to the charity shop because I was unable to take them with me.

  • Anosa Malanga

    Haha, I am guilty of holding so many storage. Haha! Sometimes I am holding back especially when deciding to declutter. I will have to be firm now when decluttering.

  • Adriana Lopez
    August 29, 2018

    I get sometimes I feel the same way and we just need to take a break and breathe. Decluttering helps and also is a healthy thing to do. Hoarding stuff is not a good thing to do. I bet a lot of the excess stuff can help others in the community.

  • Jessica Hughes
    August 29, 2018

    I am getting to the point where I really do want to minimize the amount of “things” we have. It gets to the point where I feel like the clutter is owning me and while I don’t think we are yet to the point where we could live without 90% of our things, I do want to keep a handle on it.

  • Glamamom
    August 28, 2018

    I feel like we are drowning in stuff. It just magically appears! I try To be conscious about what I buy And bring into the house bc it really adds up and is terrible for the environment!

  • Kate | Life of a Ginger
    August 28, 2018

    I am totally guilty of holding on to clutter for too long. But then I find some inspiration and just go at it, getting rid of anything we don’t use. It’s like therapy!

  • Roch
    August 28, 2018

    I hate clutter at home and at work. I make sure to have all things organized everywhere. We have storage bins and cabinets that serve a different unique purpose. Having too many toxic people is a headache, too.

  • Pam
    August 28, 2018

    I could do with some decluttering… both physical and mental at this point. Lots of stuff isn’t serving me anymore and it needs to go.

  • valmg @ Mom Knows It All
    August 28, 2018

    We could stand a bit of decluttering around here. For most it’s stuff that needs to have something done with it but the opportunity hasn’t arisen. And there’s always room to declutter toxic people.

  • Jenn@Engineermommy
    August 28, 2018

    Decluttering is like therapy for me. And when I fall behind with it, it inevitably leads to a cluttered mind. I couldn’t agree more how important it is to declutter.

  • Mimi

    I get so much anxiety when it’s cluttered. I like the idea of decluttering toxic people 🙂 Sounds like something I need to do

    Decluttering is an unfortunate but necessary evil sometimes. Otherwise you become a hoarder

  • Brandy

    I decluttered a lot when we moved, I had to put stuff into storage and was like if I haven’t used it since living in this rental home, it’s gone! Felt great to declutter. I used to do it like 3 times a year!

  • Melissa
    August 28, 2018

    This made me LOL so many times, it is sooooo damn true!!! Like HOW does my # even end up on those lists, I swear I purposely don’t enter contests etc anymore because I was sick of them selling my information. And I am ALSO guilty of keeping everything…like, ohh it is just a hole the size of a baseball I’ll get around to sewing it…ten years later!

  • Nina Bashaw

    Yes! Decluttering your house and or friendships is so important for your physical and mental health! I gotta figure out how to get rid of those spam phone calls, those are getting out of control!

  • Sola
    August 28, 2018

    I just donated about 60% of my stuff to a local charity thrift store. It was so freeing! I’m traveling for the next six months and it’s so surprising how little I actually need!

  • Gladys Parker
    August 28, 2018

    I recently decluttered a lot. I started with the literally hundreds of books I had. I donated them to various places. The it was on to my clothes. That was actually harder–but now my closet is pretty empty and I am infinite;y happier. The clothes were donated also!

  • Jenn
    August 28, 2018

    I am always decluttering my house. I don’t know where it all comes from but ignoring it a peeve of mine.

  • stacey
    August 28, 2018

    I’ve filled out that form for the do-not-call list, more than once too. Its so irritating to get them still. I hate to dust. And as a military spouse, I decided to declutter long ago after I realized I was moving boxes around the world that I never opened. After the 3rd move (just finished the 9th) if I didn’t open it, I donated to charity. And now I only buy something if I’m in love with it.

  • Ally
    August 28, 2018

    I swear every time we declutter a room, we instantly have new stuff that fills its spot. I don’t understand how it keeps happening or why!

  • Melissa Chapman
    August 28, 2018

    Declutter is my word for 2018 and beyond. I have so many rooms to clean of things I have accumulated and of course collected. I need to go from room to room one at a time.

  • Jordan | Read. Eat. Repeat.

    I’m terrified of becoming a hoarder too! I actually really love the aesthetic of open spaces anyway so I try to keep things decluttered as much as possible.

    OMG the sales calls, I cannot handle them…! This post is so spot on and real!!

  • Amber Myers
    August 28, 2018

    I am working on decluttering my house. I am tired of the mess! And I hate getting those annoying phone calls. I’m on the do not call list too, but they seem to go around that and change numbers. It drives me nuts! Or I get people at the door trying to sell me stuff.

  • Ashley
    August 28, 2018

    Slow clap for the toxic people. Yes we need to declutter these jerks just like the trash in our houses.

  • Jeanette
    August 28, 2018

    I definitely decluttering at least once a year. My house is not that big and if we build up too much stuff in the house it overtakes us. Other decluttering I don’t do nearly as often.

  • Janet
    August 28, 2018

    I’ve spent all of this year so far decluttering my home and life. Just found a great new app to block those spammy callers and I guess that’s a form of decluttering too.

  • Heather
    August 28, 2018

    Yes I do! I was just talking about this with my mom I keep donating mounds and mounds of things and it feels like nothing has left my house for some reason.

  • Tasheena

    Decluttering your life is so important. I’m not sure if I have five. However, one of them would be too many unwanted opinions.

  • Glenda Cates
    August 28, 2018

    I really need to declutter as well as our home is overrun with things we don’t use and most likely have forgotten we have. So this weekend my son and I will be working in his room. Then we move on to other rooms in the house so it is nice and clean.

  • candy
    August 28, 2018

    Good reminder to not only declutter our homes but other areas in our lives. Spam calls is one way to get rid of people. Those emails that are junk we get all the time, clean those up and get rid of them.

  • Sarah Bailey
    August 28, 2018

    Good luck with your decluttering – I think it is amazing how we seem to collect things in all different forms, I often feel like I’ve just got on top of one thing and then boom another load has appeared.
