2020 Best of Clearing out the Clutter

Hi friends,

We're finally heading towards the back half of December 2020!  Wasn't 100% sure we were going to make it at times, but we're still standing, and this disaster of a year is coming to close.  Give yourselves a round of applause, everybody.  As 2020 winds down, our crew would once again like to say thank you so much for spending time with us.  It's an honor to hang out with you for a few minutes every day, and we never take it for granted.

The nice folks at Google tell us that we once again had visitors from almost everywhere on the planet in 2020.  (We'll get you eventually, Greenland.)  That's amazing, to the point of almost being overwhelming, so we continue to try to think of Clutter as a daily chat in our living room with a small group of friends.  However, that's also why we sold t-shirts this year to make sure we could afford coffee for everyone!  The store will be back in February, so stay tuned.

We hope you enjoyed our time together as much as we did.  I know, it all sort of seems like a blur right now, but BDH and Little Buddha worked hard to keep you hopefully both informed and entertained, so they are excited to look back at some of the site's highlights over the last 12 months. 

What follows is a mix of some personal favorite posts, and/or some that clearly struck a chord with you.  Add them all together, and you get the 2020 Best of Clearing out the Clutter:
