Episode 273: Divorce and Decluttering with the ExExperts
Today we are talking about Decluttering and Divorce. This is a topic that I’ve wanted to address for some time, and I have the perfect guests for y’all! T.H Irwin & Jessica Klingbaum are best friends, podcasters and founders of the exExperts, a free online community for women going through divorce.
We kick off the show by having them each share their personal experiences. What I found so interesting is how they lived very different lives, with parallel stories. Although both TH and Jessica navigated their divorces separately, together they found comfort in helping each other along the way.
Out of their personal stories and professional experiences, The ExExperts was created. Their website is the go-to resource on everything you need to know about divorce–from parenting, to finance, you can find support where you need it. What I love most is their no-nonsense, honest approach to walking alongside their community because they have “been there, done that.”
As someone who has never been through a divorce, I was curious to know how each one approached the decluttering process which can be overwhelming in itself, let alone separating households.
During our conversation I asked them questions like:
- Was there more or less emotional clutter when you were separating your homes?
- What were the items that were easy to part with?
- What items did you choose to hold onto from your married life?
- How did you navigate the back and forth logistics of clothing, activities, and homework?
I feel like we only scratched the surface, I could have spoken with them for hours! If you’d like us to continue the conversation make sure to leave us a comment or tag us on social media!
