The Confronting Clutter Newsletter is an occasional email written by Carolyn Koehnline.

The Confronting Clutter Newsletter

I produce a monthly newsletter with tips for reducing the clutter in your life, as well as announcements of the workshops and classes. Below are links to several past newsletters that you’re welcome to read. You can also subscribe to the newsletter (opens in a new browser tab).

  • Mindful Pretending. This newsletter explores a strategy for borrowing competence when the task feels daunting.
  • A Page from My Journal. In this newsletter I share a personal example of how journaling can help me when I feel stuck.
  • The Power of Slow. This was a newsletter I wrote while I was in the process of writing Clearing Clutter as a Sacred Act. Sometimes slowing down is the most efficient thing to do.
  • Gertrude Time. This newsletter shares how to bring some order into a creative life. Subscribe to My Free Monthly Online Newsletter
