2020 International Grand Convention 

Wednesday, June 17–Saturday, June 20, 2020

From Corporate: 

At Young Living, health is at the center of all we do - from keeping ourselves and our families healthy to sharing abundant health with the world. With this as our guiding principle, the safety and well-being of the attendees and employees at any Young Living event is and always will be our highest priority.  

We have been closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and reviewing all updates from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the U.S. Department of State. As we look to the coming weeks and months, taking to heart what global experts predict this virus will do and how it will spread, we feel it’s our responsibility to our members, employees, and the general public to make a fundamental change to the format of our International Grand Convention this year.  

For 2020, our biggest annual event will become 100% virtual, utilizing our Virtual International Grand Convention platform, which is already in place.

For only $75, one person per membership can register for the Virtual International Grand Convention to access convention content and place orders for new convention products before they’re released to the general public! 

(IGC registrations will be converted to a Virtual International Grand Convention registration. Any funds previously paid over the Virtual International Grand Convention price of $75 USD will be refunded.)

Oil of the Month

Stress Away

These last few months have undoubtedly been stressful. We have been crossing through uncharted territories and experiencing unfamiliar situations. We need to be supporting our emotions through all of it, and we can do that with our essential oils! 

As you inhale essential oils, the tiny molecules enter the nasal cavity and pass by the olfactory bulb. Your olfactory bulb is a part of your limbic system and therefore your response to an aroma is going to be emotional before it can be rational. 

Each essential oil has a unique chemical makeup. We can take advantage of that and use essential oils to improve our mood, feel calmer or more energized, or reach a deeper state of happiness. So grab that Stress Away and breathe it in! It’s a blend of Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Ocotea, and Lavender and does exactly what the name implies!

 Click HERE to check it out!! 

NOTE: STRESS AWAY COMES IN JUST ABOUT EVERY STARTER KIT!!!

What do I do with all this stuff??

What do I do with all this stuff??

You have begun the journey to reduce the STUFF in your life, in your home. You are ready to enjoy the peace that a decluttered home can bring…

EXCEPT that you have all this stuff to get rid- and you don’t know how???

There are basically 5 options to get rid of the items you have decluttered.

  • Trash
  • Sell
  • Donate
  • Recycle
  • Repurpose 

Trash

When I go through my home to declutter and reduce the stuff, I carry a trash bag (or box) with me because I will always come across trash, BUT not everything I no longer want is trash. IF there is an item that is still I useable condition it is not going to go in the trash…

Trash is trash but what do we do with the rest of the stuff? 

Sell

This is a great option especially if you are saving up for something, paying off debt, or want to use the money to treat yourself to something special for all your hard work! We have all heard the saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!” LOL

If you think you have items that are worth selling, do a quick search, and see what other people are selling them online. Decide if the price is worth your time and go from there.

Don’t know where to sell online? 

EBAY- pretty much anything

AMAZON- pretty much anything

CRAIGSLIST- pretty much anything

FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE- pretty much anything

LETGO app- pretty much anything

POSHMARK- name brand clothing

DECLUTTR- books, CDs, DVDs, Video Games, Tech

ETSY- handmade items, vintage clothing, books, stamps, collections

Now is selling online isn’t your thing, you always have the option of a good old fashioned YARD SALE! (if you have the space to store items until the time is right) This is especially effective if you can get your neighbors to join you and have one big yard sale weekend! People love to visit multiple houses in one location.

Donate

If you are ready to just move items out of your house, don’t have enough to sell, aren’t looking to make any money, or would just prefer to bless others- a donation is the way to go! 

So now the question is where to donate?? 

Local drop-off bins are an easy solution– Many local malls and shopping centers have drop-off bins that accept items. Pay attention to the rules on each bin; some are only for usable-quality clothing, others for books, still others for textile recycling.

Other donation centers (some offer drop off bins too) for clothing, household items, and furniture.

COMMUNITY AIDE

GOODWILL

SALVATION ARMY

Can’t or don’t want to leave your house? Schedule a pick up with the PURPLE HEART at www.purpleheartpickup.org

BOOKS 

I have donated many books to our local library. Just call and see when and what types of books they are accepting. Often times they use these books for a fundraising book sale.

OR if you are looking to swap out the books you have for other books, check out BookMooch http://bookmooch.com

CELL PHONES- visit www.securethecall.org to donate cell phones and chargers that are given to women as 911 only phones for domestic violence

BONUS: DONATE AND RECYCLE THOSE BOXES 

The AMAZON Give Back Box program allows you to mail items that you want to donate in their boxes. Fill a box with the stuff you don’t need anymore. Visit www.givebackbox.com and print out a FREE shipping label!

Recycle

Recycling is probably not new to you as many places across the country offer it and some even require it. It is the process of recovering scrap or waste and reprocessing the material into useful products. Glass, paper, cardboard, plastic, and metals such as aluminum and steel are all commonly recycled. 

 

If you are not already aware of what can be recycled in your area do a quick google search “your town” + recycle. 

 

Often time you can recycle right at your curb through your trash company! But don’t stop there, there may be recycling centers that take other items your trash company isn’t set up for like electronics.

 

And bonus- if you have enough scrap metal or glass some places will even pay you for it!! So be sure to look in your area.

 

Office supply stores like Staples, Best Buy and Office Depot give you $2 in-store credit for each printer or toner cartridge returned for recycling. 

 

Want to go above and beyond to help eliminate waste? Check out these recycling websites:

 

www.Terracycle.com find brands that allow you to recycle their packaging

www.Recyclebank.com get points for recycling & turn it into savings

www.Greendisk.com mail in E-cycling for your computers and technology

 

Repurpose

Is there something you love and don’t want to part with BUT you aren’t really using? Consider repurposing it!!! 

What do I mean? Think of new ways to use the item or items that make them useful! We can reuse items to create something new or give it new life.

Create a quilt out of old t-shirts, baby clothing or blankets

Old sweaters and flannels can be made into mittens, hats, or scarves.

A fresh coat of paint can bring furniture and household items back to life and give them a new flavor.

You can turn an old ladder into a bookshelf.

The ideas are limitless!! Just google repurpose + “item” and see what pops up!

<<<<<<
There are lots of options out there to help you get all that stuff out of your home- don't let it overwhelm you. Just pick one and go with it!!
