Update 4/17/2014 evening: My blog may still be experiencing issues with the mobile version.  I cleaned it again temporarily, and I’m getting it professionally scanned to ensure a permanent fix.  For now I would recommend visiting only from a desktop or laptop computer.  I’ll post an update when it’s completely fixed to give the all clear.


Original post: 4/17/2014 morning

I got hacked recently and anyone trying to get to rethinkingthedream.com from a mobile device was redirected to a porn site.  I apologize if any of you ran into that, as the offensive site was certainly not related to decluttering or minimalism (although they certainly had minimal wardrobe).  I was able to work with my web host to get the issue resolved.

We are now back in business and focused on minimalism, decluttering, and coaching.

I want to thank Rebecca for alerting me to the issue.  She is a professional organizer based in Australia.  She has some good decluttering and organizing info on her blog (http://clearspace.net.au/blog/) and her Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ProfessionalOrganiser) so be sure to check those out.

Speaking of Facebook, our private Facebook group is growing.  Join us and take advantage of our own little private corner of the Internet where you can connect with like minded individuals.  Our group is what Facebook calls a “closed” group, meaning only group members see the posts.  This allows you to post freely since your Facebook friends won’t see your posts in the group.

Is Clutter Your Security Blanket?

If I were to guess, I would say that “I might need it one day” is the top reason for hanging onto stuff.  It was in my life.  I had extras of everything.  I had extra clothes, tools, dishes, cooking utensils, books, blankets, cords and cables, nuts and bolts and screws… the list goes on […]


Eliminate Your Attachment to Stuff

I have made many changes over the past few years. I have decluttered our house, reduced the number of belongings contained within, downside from a 4 bedroom house to a 2 bedroom apartment, and all of this has led to greater freedom. Freedom in the form of more time, less wasted effort, and the ability […]


Tag Team Closet Decluttering

Have you ever stared into your closet and get a feeling of dread at all the clothes stuffed in there?  I have, and it’s just so overwhelming to go through it and figure out what to keep and what to get rid of.  Decluttering is mentally draining and it’s easy to quickly reach a point […]


Clutter Coaching and Life Coaching

I recently opened a new phase of my own life in my quest to Rethink my Dreams.  One of my dreams had been hidden from view, masked by other things going on in my life.  That dream has been to help others.  In some form or fashion I have been helping others all my life. […]


Divide and Conquer to Defeat Clutter

Divide and conquer is a military and political tactic used to defeat your enemies and create a situation in which rule comes easier.  The term is derived from the latin, divide et impera.  It more literally translates to defeat in detail, although I’ve more commonly heard it referred to as divide and conquer. I like […]
