Friends, we are going to do something exciting and challenging together…
For the whole month of July, we are going to DECLUTTER our WHOLE house in just a few minutes each day. I don’t know about you, but I have been feeling a little overwhelmed at the amount of stuff in all areas of my home. We used to have a rule that one thing had to leave when another came in, but that has been long since abandoned. Well meaning friends and neighbors have blessed our large family with clothes and accessories, and while I am extremely grateful, I am feeling the walls close in on me a bit. So, I have decided to run a 31 Day Declutter Challenge in the month of July and I would love for you to join me.
We will be going through each room of our homes and through all those typical spots where clutter naturally appears, in an effort to breathe a little easier. This will be a quick runthrough, designed to get you purging and eliminating all that unused or unloved ‘stuff” in your home. The idea is to keep this SIMPLE and easy to keep up with, not add to your overwhelm. I will not be giving you any projects or huge organizing plans. I have set up a plan and will give you a task each day to follow, along with some added helps for you. I have created some fun printables for you to use if you wish.
A Few Helpful Tips:
- As a reminder, this is a quick decluttering. You will not be thoroughly cleaning every area of your home in 10 minutes a day. This is designed to give you a jump on what I hope will inspire you to keep going with me for the rest of the year. I have some fun things planned for the next few months.
- Use a timer to stay focused. Again, we will be spending 10-15 minutes a day decluttering. I do not want you to get overwhelmed while doing this and burn out. Stay with me.
- Don’t overthink things as you go through them. If you think too long about whether to get rid of something, you will find it a lot harder to part with. Keep what you love and use, and get rid of the rest.
- Keep a donation basket handy. As soon as it is filled, take it to your car and don’t hesitate. It will bless someone else and you will feel better for it.
Over the next few days, I will give you a couple fun printables you can use for the challenge if you wish. I think you will be amazed at what you can accomplish in just a few minutes a day. I know I am eager to get going and see my bathroom counters again!
Feel free to ask me any questions as we go along. I will post each day on the blog as well as on Facebook and Instagram. If you are following along with me, use the hashtag #SimpleHomeChallenge so we can all see what we are accomplishing and get some new inspiration.
I am excited to have you join me in this 31 Day Declutter Challenge!
