The first link “Swedish Death Cleaning” had way too many ads. I was bombarded with so many ads that I couldn’t even read the article. There is a reason why so many of us use ad blockers. Please don’t reference any more links from this website (dailymail.uk). Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback Joseph. I don’t run their website nor do I know their business model of how they keep their website free to readers. But if they continue to publish articles that are helpful for inspiring simplicity, then I will continue to link to them. Hope that explains my reasoning a bit.
Thank you. Great article to link to. The ads are indeed annoying, but clicking reader mode is a quick fix.

We completed the Uncluttered course earlier this Spring. It was perfect timing. What else can you do during the winter months in the Midwest?!
It was A LOT of hard work and we can still purge more. But, having less to clean, less in our closets to search for something and more overall simple peace is AMAZING.
I just finished a few episodes of Swedish Death Cleaning, episodes that I could relate to. My husband and I are empty nesters. Recently we have started fine tuning our clean out. It’s amazing how things accumulate even when you consider yourself to be a minimalist. The woman with Stage 4 terminal cancer episode was so beautifully done and it really hit home with me. Thank you Joshua for these postings and for the support you give us all to keep forging ahead with less stress.
