I want to teach you a little trick to beating the winter blue’s. In fact, this trick works year-round to fend off stress and the heavy weight of sadness. What is my trick? De-Cluttering!! I want to show you that even just a little de-cluttering a day goes a very long way. It takes a weight off of our minds. We feel lighter. Stress is relieved. I get my best organizing done when I’m stressed! (Removing the clutter is the first step of organizing.)
This week’s challenge is a simple one.
- For six days, find 10 items in your home to get rid of each day.
- Remove the clutter from the premises by the week’s end.
- 6 Days. 60 items total. Out of the House. That’s it!
There is so much power in simple tasks! Simple habits repeated consistently over time are more powerful in positively changing the course of our lives than grand gestures achieved occasionally.
This round of the challenge will begin tomorrow, January 6th and end Saturday January 11th. Join our online group for support. I’ll be throwing a private giveaway in the group for those who participate. :)
Grab a leftover box from Christmas packaging or a big brown bag and start filling it tomorrow. 10 items each day. It is that easy! If you want to sell it, sell it, just as long as selling it doesn’t become an excuse to keep it around longer. Everything donated and out of the house by end of day Saturday.
If you don’t think you can find 10 items a day — look at bookshelves, movie storage, closets, kitchen cupboards, the backs of bathroom drawers and cabinets, and your garage. Once you start looking, it will get easier to find.
Have a great week of De-Cluttering!!!
