What people are saying:

“With Rachel’s course, in only six weeks, the big jobs I’d been putting off for so long are mostly done. It’s a wonderful and pretty dramatic change, much-appreciated by other members of my family.” ~ A

Rachel was able to clearly guide me through the emotional journey of decluttering my home. I’ve hired professional help in the past to help me declutter, but I was never able to keep my home in a tidy state. This course helped me understand the why behind my clutter and how to fix it once and for all. I highly recommend this course. Well worth the time & money! ~

I was hesitant to join the course as I was further along my decluttering journey than others and had already achieved a lot on my own but I got an enormous amount out of the course. It’s a wonderful course that supported me to make some lasting changes in my home and in my life. No matter where you are in your decluttering journey, I think you’ll find many gems and insights in this course. If you’re not sure whether to do the course, I’d say DO IT! ~ Em M.

The Decluttering Course provided me with the tools and motivation to de-clutter my home. The private Facebook group was a great place to discuss progress, ask for advice, and just gain momentum to keep on de-cluttering. I am sad the course is over, but very glad that I can access Rachel’s on-going advice through her blog. – Geeta Kadakia

“This is an awesome course! Rachel Jones leads you step by step. If you are decluttering in the 2015 challenge and unsure of your goals and aren’t sure you are making progress, this course addresses the underlying issues you are facing. With very doable daily course assignments, Rachel’s encouragement and the participants Facebook group support, I found a good basis to continue this journey towards my goal of minimalism. Go for it and improve your life free of clutter!” ~Kathleen Kocunik

Rachel is a wonderful instructor. Her course is well organized, easy to follow and do-able. Her videos are very encouraging and helps motivate you do each task. You are given a new skill set that will carry you through your decluttering journey. It’s a process but well worth it. Thanks Rachel! ~Maria

My life is much easier to deal with now that I have less, but in having less I have gained so much more. ~Amanda

I think I speak for most members in this group. . . we support each other in our efforts to simplify our lives for the best future possible. we laugh, cry, sympathize, and keep each other on track in our mutual quest. Thank you for this invaluable group! ~Sheri

The course helped me clear out the confusion in my mind so that I could concentrate on divesting myself of all those things I no longer wanted, used, or cared for. I am living comfortably and minimally now, and have so much more time to spend with the people I love, doing the things we love to do. ~A

I’ve enjoyed insights thru your blog and found your course very helpful, especially those first few days of looking at why we want to declutter and why we’re still holding onto things. Thank you! ~Liz

The site has given me reminders of things I can do. Examples; one room at a time. Select amount of time to do it. Take trash out when done. Things I have forgotten, or better ways of doing things. Very informative. ~Leslie

I love Rachel’s insights on balancing minimizing and family living. She shows how to minimize within a family in practical, useful ways. ~Casey B.

I am throughly enjoying the course. Most of my friends would say I don’t need to declutter but we move later this year and I don’t want it to become a massive job. I am now confident, that when the time comes, we will pack the boxes (no sorting required), clean the house and leave as calmly as possible. ~Juanita

Your site has really helped me focus on keeping only that which brings me joy and peace, so it has been like a clutter cleanse. Not so different from all those popular cleanses for our bodies, except Nourishing Minimalism has helped me cleanse my home, my schedule, and even my personal life (relationships and such). Thanks! ~Shaina

The course helped me get going with decluttering. I like the direction and encouragement I’m getting while going through the course, and I’m making good progress on my home. ~Debra C.

I have thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful yet challenging site. I have let go of many things and have never looked back as I have been freed more and more to live my life and not take care of so much stuff. It’s an ongoing journey and I’m enjoying the view as there’s less and less things in the way and a clearer path before me. Thank you for your guidance, your helping hand along the way, and reminders when I get weary to remember why I am choosing a different way than those around me. I chose to live! ~Jenny

Rachel’s material is easy to follow and incredibly inspiring! I have come a long, long way on this journey thanks to Rachel and her practical approach and down to earth persona. Forever grateful. ~Dianne

It’s changed my life! I now have more time for all the fun stuff! ~Tam

The free flowing FB group has been the best group therapy I could’ve hoped for. Thanks for making that happen. ~Luna

Just love the advise that is so practical and doable. Also gives you a different point of view on how to tackle those jobs and emotions you don’t want to face, organize or declutter! ~Sonja

Your insight has helped me change my thinking about things, and has helped me clear away the clutter from my home as well as my life. Once the clutter is out of the way, your life frees up in so many other ways. Your mind isn’t cluttered with concerns about maintaining all of those things. It isn’t stuck in the overwhelmed state any longer. New thoughts and ideas take their place! Instead, perhaps “How can I use my life to help others?” How wonderful is that? Thanks, Rachel, for sharing your gift! ~Diane

I enjoy the continual feeling that I am not in this process alone. ~Jen

Decluttering room by room helped me gain sanity! I lost the anxiety and continuous feeling of being overwhelmed. I’m a new woman and now have a better relationship with my husband and daughter. ~Helen

I’m writing with a big heartfelt thank you for everything so far!!

I am SO happy I chose to do your course – I’m so relieved that the 10 weeks ended and that it’s ok for me to work through your tutorials at my own pace. 
I am by no means ‘there’ – where I want to be, but I have already seen so much positive change in my life – with my job, husband and children – and my own peace of mind! I’m realising this journey is as important as the destination.
I am loving this challenge and loving being a part of it. I have read a lot of books, workshops, blogs, and I’m on plenty of support groups around the topics of frugality, decluttering, minimalism, simple living, joyful living…but the main thing I get from you is the quiet confidence you have in me, in everyone on your course. I feel like we’re in a sisterhood – us working mothers who care about the atmosphere at home, and the simple but quality childhood we want to provide. It’s because of your non-judgemental, positive and constant support and encouragement, no matter what. I have so much more to say but for now, it was important to me that I said something!! ~ Warm regards, Charlotte Cohen
