Welcome back friends and family, to Education (Financial) Wednesdays section of my B.R.E.A.T.H.S. blog! For the month of July, I am documenting my journey to financial freedom. The first week, I started my journey with adjusting my money mindset. The second week, I shared my money magnet tracking strategies. Last week, I discussed how I build my financial literacy through education and business strategies. This final week, I am discussing how to declutter and make more room for more things to manifest.
Believe it or not, we have manifested everything we currently have. We manifested money, love, travel, experiences, necessities, and material things. Look around you and try to remember how you felt when you wanted something, then how you felt when you got it, and now how do you feel about it?
Marie Kondo wrote a book and made a Netflix series on her method called, KonMari. She shows us how to declutter things in our life by picking it up, asking if it sparks joy, and if it does not, thank it and discard it in a loving way. Every time I made a move in the last four years (3x), I decluttered more and more, either by donating, giving to loved ones, or storing in my parents attic for memories or to sell at a later time.

Conclusion on Clearing the Way to Wealth
Over the last couple months, I have been focusing on my financial journey, learning things one day at a time until I can master new money habits. In this first part of my path, I learned I need to declutter the things in my life to make room for more money and new things I want to manifest. A few weeks ago, I went up to my parents’ attic, grabbed a bunch of things to sell and had a two-day garage sale with my family. Not only did I get rid of loads of things, I managed to make a good amount of money to put away in my emergency savings that I am rebuilding.
