    7 Tips To Clutter Free Living With 'Slob Sister' Pam Young

     

    "It’s no secret that countless families are deluged by household clutter."

    Catchy phrases called out to me as I surfed – zero waste, garbage free, plastic free – each enticing me with the hope that life would become…simpler.  While ‘zero’ and ‘free’ felt heart pounding intimidating a simpler, more joyful, happier life would unfold if I could just… start to declutter the ‘things’ in my life. 

    This I believed as I much of time seems to be a slave to stuff.

    Meet Margie | From Asthma to Interior Design Advocate

    “When you can’t breathe nothing else matters” was the campaign slogan of The American Lung Association in the mid 90’s. It came as a postcard with a photo of a cute little boy with an oxygen tube draped across his tiny face. It resonated with me as I sorted through the remaining pile of mail. As an asthma sufferer myself, I knew all too well the helpless feeling of shortness of breath and panic....how frightening it must be for a young child I thought.

    A Story of a Runway Model

    My journey to living a toxin-free life began on a beautiful New York City afternoon when Armani's model booking agent sat at the next table at an outdoor café. It’s every model’s dream to be discovered by a happy accident and that happened for me. From that moment, my modeling career took off. Being a fashion model was exciting and exhausting at times. Endless amounts of makeup were dabbed, smudged, powdered, and brushed on my face and body.

    It wasn’t until I sat in on a Savvy Board meeting that I truly understood the complex workings of this amazing organization and the scope of their efforts. I was immediately proud to be part of something so much larger than myself, and a company that I believed would truly change the world. I knew from that day forward that I would take any opportunity to be a part of Savvy again as it was established and grew.

    I wish I had had a network like this when I started my health and fitness journey. I want to help other women just starting out to cut through the endless pages of Google results, confusing articles, and conflicting information that have lead many to give up or never start. I want to empower women to take their health into their own hands and become aware of what they’re eating and how what they’re eating can change their mood, energy levels, and bodies. As I continue my own journey, I want to share what I’m learning with health, nutrition and other allies that are dedicated to making the world and our bodies a cleaner and healthier place.
