So you’re tired of the crap and ready for space to create your next step.

You’re in the perfect place.

In 30 days, you could be celebrating your space with newfound clarity and joy.  Enjoying more freedom than ever.  Focusing on exactly what's important to you.

My name is Genevieve. You may have read my story before, but in case you haven't, this is it:

Before my house burned down years ago, I was a pack rat. Letting go of things—especially things with emotional weight or sentimental attachment—terrified me. I thought the stuff was connected to my value -- that without it I wouldn't remember who I truly was.  But once all the stuff was gone in a life-changing blaze, I realized I didn’t need any of it to be happy or to be me. I found a new sense of freedom and joy.

Now I love to travel light and enjoy the deeper relationships, financial ease, and space to create that simple living offers.

You can find your happy place here too.

 

The Map is 30 Days of Decluttering: April 1—30, 2018.

Live in a haven of your own creation. No more breaking out in a fit of self-shaming when you can’t find last year's tax return. No more toxic, limiting thoughts. No more crammed schedule that makes you miss out on relishing the unexpected delight your day brings.

Clutter limits your freedom and joy. But getting rid of possessions can feel overwhelming, not to mention how it can bring up a ton of anxiety and frustration. It doesn’t have to be like that. It can be fun. You can transform your space—and your life—with simple living. I know because I did it, and I wrote the Map to help you.

I wrote the book on minimalist living (it’s called Minimalist Living) and when I published it in 2013 it was the only full-length book with that title on Amazon. Now there are at least seven books with that title on Amazon, and many more on the topic. As an early author of the movement, the growing prevalence of what I call minimalism or simple living thrills me. I'm grateful that so many are now part of this movement, and I'm honored to have helped many thousands of people simplify and get focused on what matters.

Right now the 30-Day Map to Get Rid of Your Crap is the only way to work directly with me to simplify your life. Make this your year to dig a little deeper and create a breakthrough for your most joyful life.

The 30-Day Map to Get Rid of Your Crap is for you if:

  • You’re in the middle of a transition (moving, getting married, getting divorced, starting a new venture, retiring—any end or beginning) and you feel overwhelmed and need to edit your clutter for clarity on what’s next.

  • You’ve been intrigued by the idea of minimalism for a while and you’re ready to jump in with a guide and a supportive community.

  • You know you need to do some serious decluttering, but you want to have fun and do it with a group because you think your family is maybe going to look at your like you're crazy :).

  • You’re ready to put in the effort and take complete responsibility for your space.

 I give you the Map, the support, and the community, but you have to take action to get results. Let’s make this fun!

All Art Begins with a Blank Canvas

Does your outer world affect your inner world? Does your inner world affect your outer world? You bet.

Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Goddesses Never Age, recommends decluttering as one way to begin the type of self-care that puts you in touch with yourself and the attitudes and activities that help you feel vibrant at any age. But decluttering doesn't sound great when we think of agonizing over what to keep and what to get rid of, not to mention the guilt associated with giving away certain possessions that we hate but that we may be holding onto to please others. 

The bottom line is that it's boring and not fun to declutter alone without a community. Your home is the blank canvas upon which you create the art that is your lifestyle. Let's bring a sense of purpose and community to clearing the crap.

What You Get

Here are the details on what comes with the 30-Day Map to Get Rid of Your Crap:

The program breaks down the large task of decluttering your home, life, and schedule into 30 actionable steps. We focus on steps as well as meaning -- why we're doing this. We celebrate and stay inspired together. As we declutter our possessions, negative thoughts, and even our time, our mental outlook begins to reflect the beauty and clarity we're creating in our physical environment. And vice versa.

  • One visually-inspiring email a day for thirty days, each with expert guidance on exactly how to declutter your home and life for more joy

  • Guidance for making this process fast --  as little as 5 minutes (go at your own pace) per day

  • A bonus email 60 days later (you'll see why in the course)

  • Inspiring quotes to fuel your journey to simplicity

  • Minimalist mantras to keep you going

  • A list showing your progress each day

  • Free group coaching from me in the members group on Facebook

  • Free access for the life of the program: pay once and join us to repeat the Map each spring for free (I can't promise that I'll run the Map forever, but I have no plans to stop now)

In a buy, buy, buy world, decluttering things we don’t need or want is unconventional at best, feared at worst. In a world where popularity is valued, choosing to be alone over spending time with toxic people is a radical act. In a world where busyness is valued, sitting still is an act of courage.

But choosing the path of simplicity has great rewards for those with the guts to do so.

The 30-Day Map not only offers daily stepping stones to guide your progress as you let go of what no longer serves you, but it also provides a community of support to encourage, commiserate, and offer advice as you remove the excess that is blocking you from the life you want to live. Genevieve is a counselor, cheerleader, mediator, and friend along the way helping you have a healthier relationship with your stuff and yourself.

About the Members Group

My own personal favorite part of the Map is the exclusive members group on FB. Here Mappers form an uplifting and supportive community, encouraging others and showing off their great decluttering work in before-and-after photos. It's a great place to get questions answered and encourage other Mappers, both during the Map and when in post-Map maintenance mode. If you're social and enjoy a thumbs up on your fabulous decluttering efforts, you'll love it. You'll also love the advice from me and our friendly community. 

Go at Your Own Pace

Life happens. If something comes up during the Map (anything from illness to a fabulous surprise trip for two) you can pick up right where you left off when things get back to normal. On April 1st, you'll get "Day One," April 2nd, "Day Two," and so on, but those steps will be waiting in your inbox so you can restart your decluttering anytime. If you have travel plans or guests coming to town next month, you can always either catch up with the group or go at your own pace and finish anytime. There are always Mappers who find it helpful to stretch out the 30 days to whatever length of time feels right for them. And while the Members Group is most active during the 30 days of the Map, we post year-round when we're decluttering and want some encouragement or support. You can also decide to re-Map and do the 30 days at a different time altogether that works with your schedule. Share your plan in the members group so we can follow up to see how your new plan goes.

Today's edition of the Map has been upgraded and expanded with feedback from testers and past participants. It includes more value and resources than ever before. This price will get you access to all future editions of and upgrades to the Map.

You could pay $600 and up for an in-home consultation from a professional organizer who won't be able to help you for long, and will leave you to maintain his or her system on your own. Instead, pay a budget-friendly price and join the Map year after year for free.

For some, the course will pay for itself. One Mapper found a $200 gift card that she'd forgotten about. It was hiding amidst the clutter. Of course, some Mappers will choose to host yard sales or sell unwanted possessions online. That can be another source of profit. 

Easy Refund

I think you'll enjoy the 30-Day Map and reap life-changing benefits. If you don't, you should get your money back. My guarantee is a full refund (no questions asked) any time from purchase up to day 15 of the Map (halfway through). Simply email me at Genevievewrites@gmail.com to request a refund.

This Year's Charity Beneficiary: 3000 Miles to a Cure

This year, a portion of the proceeds of 30-Day Map sales will be donated to help fund research to cure brain cancer. My mom lost her sister, Jenny Mulligan, to brain cancer so this is important to my family and to the many people affected by brain cancer.  Brain cancer is crap, so let's get rid of it! Like so many things in life, by helping yourself, you are also helping others. The Map is one of those opportunities. 

Testimonials from Past Mappers

I am learning to stand up for myself and have pride in my mission. It has strengthened my resolve and changed many other aspects of my life not just at home. I can see myself revisiting this course every spring!
— Sara
To me, so far, the 30-Day Map has made me take a step back in decluttering, and has made me take it slower. I take days in between, to process it all mentally. But I have no doubt, that when I take the program in a second round (and may be ina 2nd, a 4th,.... how ever many I need), it is a good tool to create space on many different levels, and eventually, get steps ahead in life, in whatever I, or anyone else, wishes for.
— Ingrid, Holland
I like that within the framework that you have provided I have been able to personalize our own home. I’m enjoying this experience immensely because it is a manageable amount for a short project each day. Thank you!
— Lee-Anne, Canada
I have been (so I thought!) quite minimalist for years, having moved 6 times in 5 years as a military spouse, paring down each time to make the process as easy as possible. However, in just the first 15 days of the Map, I have unloaded 173 things from my 860 square foot home. I didn’t feel that my home was stuffed to the gills, even with a toddler and a large dog, and I was very skeptical that I would be able to cull still more things from my wardrobe and other areas of the house, but the way the Map is laid out and the simple and effective instructions, suggestions, and support from Genevieve found me donating, selling, and tossing far more than I expected. It has reaffirmed and re-energized my efforts to be mindful of what I bring into my home and what I spend money on, and I feel more space and peace with fewer belongings to care for, as well as more motivation to turn that freed time to spending more time with my family.
— Kari, California
The 30-Day Map takes a huge undertaking and breaks it into bite size pieces with awesome ideas and encouragement along the way. The feeling of shedding unneeded baggage is a fantastic feeling of freedom. I was hoping to minimize my home; an unexpected bonus was the uplifting clarity of simplicity. The 30-Day Map helps get rid of crap, both physical and mental. I highly recommend taking the journey!
— Kristy
Be prepared going into it for a change in your environment, your mind and your lifestyle for the better. After taking this course, I will consider each and every purchase I make and every item I choose to bring into my home in a much more careful manner. I didn’t realize that having clutter and ‘stuff’ all around my house was creating unnecessary anxiety in my life and now that it has been cleared out and organized I am calmer and happier.
— Linda
I got the direction I needed to free my space and mind. I have been able to analyse my ‘consuming’ items that are superfluous to my well being, and reassess what makes our lives easier or just has a negative impact in the long term.
