Spring Decluttering Challenge Update March 26, 2018 – Posted in: cleaning, decluttering, organizing, spring decluttering challenge
How is it going?
We are 1/3 of the way through the Spring Decluttering Challenge. I know a few people are joining me, so I hope you are keeping track of how many garbage bags of stuff you declutter. (You can read the initial post HERE.)
I have 6 bags so far! I have had a few cleaning binges, but most of it has just been done in one small area at a time. The goal is to work on at least one small area per day. It seems like a daunting task, but if you break it down it is not so bad!
I decluttered the linen closet one shelf at a time.
I decluttered my clothing one or two drawers at a time.
I decluttered my craft supplies one shoebox tote at a time.
Another thing that I am finding is that I tend to have too many baskets or totes sitting around to collect miscellaneous items. I am trying to get better about finding a home for these items and then getting the basket out of my house so that there is not another place for random stuff to accumulate.
I also have a basket of bags of stuff that need to go to other people. I am trying to be intentional about delivering those things and getting them out of here!
Finally, I am trying to be a little more creative and practical about storing the things we do need.
So, do you have any tips? Do you have any success stories to share? Go ahead and leave a comment!
