  • This week I chat about de-cluttering. I mention The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, and quote Seth Godin: "Everything you own, all the clothing in your closet, your academic achievements and beyond is simply a gift. It is a gift that your past self is giving to your present self, and it’s up to you to decide whether you want that gift today." (source)
  • I also mention the Curious Handmade podcast with Helen Stewart
