Episode 85 – Decluttering cards

Decluttering cards can be a daunting task because some of us just love a greeting card and struggle to walk past that section of a shop without buying one. In this podcast we explore why we love them so much and why we end up with way more than we need.


Buying greetings cards is the easy bit but remembering where we put them when we need to send one can be tricky, so we just go out and buy another one. Sending a card involves lots of levels of organisation. Decluttering cards is the first step so you have some control over what you have.

  1. Great to hear about Greetings Cards Podcast! One of my weaknesses, I love a pretty picture and realised I need to focus on ‘in house shopping’ and declutter those cards. I could really do with a podcost on cards I have kept from family and friends and how to approach decluttering those, especially when a loved one is no longer with us or the cards are from a close family member. Thank you ladies.

  2. I look forward to listening every week . I always learn something or feel validated in some way. You speak in a friendly, practical and kind way. Keeping it real. ✔️💙💚🇦🇺
