If you’ve followed along with me throughout the last year, you know that I love to take “30-Day Challenges.” From fitness to cleaning to writing a mission statement, I’ve tackled a few projects in the last year!
Today, I’m launching another Clear the Clutter Challenge. You may remember that we tackled one back in May, but already it looks like I need to do it again. I don’t know where it all comes from. I’ve been pretty diligent, but it keeps showing up in the form of gifts, outgrown clothes, and more!!
This week, I want to do a quick sweep of the house and declutter quickly. I’ll be taking pictures and documenting my progress to share with you next week.
Here’s my schedule:
Friday: Bathrooms & Laundry
Room Closet 🙂
Tuesday: Living Areas
Wednesday: School Area
I’m not going to worry about deep cleaning this time — I’m just trying to get the extra clutter out quickly! For each room, I’ll be using three boxes:
1) Trash: For all the stuff I need to throw away – broken, unusable, etc.
2) Get rid of: The is for all of the items I will either give away or sell at a garage sale.
3) IDK (I Don’t Know): This is for those items I’m just not quite sure I’m ready to get rid of yet. I’ll either go through these later with a friend (to provide perspective) or put them away in a closet. Then, if I haven’t used the items after six months, I’m going to get rid of the box.
That’s my plan! Do you wanna join?!!
Next week, we’ll take a look at some other forms of clutter in our lives. I remember how eye-opening it was the first time I read [easyazon-link asin=”0784721106″]From Clutter to Clarity: Simplifying Life from the Inside Out[/easyazon-link] to help me realize how cluttered I’d let my life become…and not just physical clutter! I’m rereading it this month to help me in this Clear the Clutter Challenge #2!
