I’m seeking a decluttering accountability buddy for 2015! Leave a comment or message me if you are interested! I will still be doing a group in January, but I’d love to have a personal buddy to do this with! Also, leave a comment if you are still decluttering to reach 201 items gone by January 1st! You can win Clutter Free by Kathi Lipp!One-Week Decluttering Challenge
If you would like to enter to win a copy of Clutter Free by Kathi Lipp so you can follow along with our decluttering adventures, here’s what you need to do this week (12/26-1/1):
Get rid of 201 items from your home.
It’s that simple! Just go through your home and get rid of 201 items. You can post pics on social media and tag me, or keep a list of what you’re getting rid of, or just let me know that you got rid of 201 items. Leave a comment below on how you are doing, and when you reach item #201, you will be entered to win!
21-Day Clutter Free Challenge
SIGN UP for the 21-Day Clutter Free Challenge! We will go through the book together in January. You will receive detailed tasks as we read and declutter, and we will chat more about why there is clutter in our lives and how we can get rid of it for good!
So far there has been 149 things that will be leaving our house! I think I am finally ready to move onto another room in our house, although I’m pretty sure if I look hard enough, I will find more to remove from our bedroom. Moving onto the next room, and also cleaning out one kitchen drawer!
Here’s my post from IG (photo above):
Day 2 is done! I didn’t declutter much since there were other house tasks to complete and we had guests over. See our wild game of Headbandz going on? Actually, I think M was just reading the rules. We are slowly but surely making our way to 201 items gone! Chapter 3 of Clutter Free was awesome (top left pic) and Chapter 4 is making me think more on why there is clutter in our home. Why do I hold on to certain things? Should I hold on them?
Kathi challenged us to write down the things we buy and how we feel after buying them. As many of you know, I am not a shopper, so I am hoping this is an easy task for me, although even I can simmer down on buying unnecessary items “just because”. If you love to shop or collect things, I hope this habit will help you decide if you really need something before you make a purchase.
Every single item coming into our home costs us something: It costs us space. It costs us time. It costs us attention. It costs us energy.
I don’t know about you, but my space, time, attention, and energy are limited, and I would love to make good use of it. Next year during winter break, I hope I will not be going through stuff to get rid of, but enjoying my family and friends a whole lot more!
