Clutter-Free by Thanksgiving 30 Day Challenge

30 Day Challenge

It’s that time of year again, and I’ve gotten requests for help with getting rid of clutter.

I do realize there are less than 30 days until Thanksgiving, but I thought you might also appreciate some motivation in the cleanup process afterwards in order to stay clutter-free for all the celebrations following Thanksgiving.

 

So here’s a quick overview of the plan for this week to give you some concrete steps to follow.

 

Week 1

1. Download the free KonMari App & use it as a guide for getting rid of clutter. (Only available on iPhones as of right now.) If you don’t have an iPhone, the KonMari Adventures FaceBook group is also inspiring.

2. Set up a storage bin of some sort with a trash bag to put all the stuff you’ll be getting rid of this month.

3. Try to spend at least 5 minutes a day getting rid of clutter (no more than 45 minutes a day unless you have someone helping you) and not just hiding or organizing it.

4. Start a chart to mark off each day that you get rid of something.

5. Find a friend or FaceBook group to share your progress with at the end of each week.

6. Join this newsletter to get next week’s challenge sent straight to your inbox.

7. Most of all, have fun! Decluttering doesn’t have to be dreadful. You can be creative, or you can keep it really simple. Whatever works for you, but just do something. As you work on it little by little, it will become less overwhelming.

 

I’d love to know if you’re taking the challenge! Shoot me an email to let me know you’re giving it a try this year. You can also tell me why it’s so important to you.

I look forward to hearing from you!

 

Wishing you a clutter-free Thanksgiving,
