If you’ve been following this blog since the beginning, you know that I have worked in the past toward having a clutter-free home. Let me be the first to admit that I have failed. Don’t get me wrong…it isn’t due to a lack of effort. I have tried. However, when I look around my home, I realize that I still have a lot to do.
I eliminated a ton of things from my home last year, using the Konmari method from the book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Slowly, but surely, the things have crept their way back into my home, though.
I have learned that you have to continue to de-clutter. It is not a one-time event that lasts for years. Until my entire mindset shifts toward less consumerism, I will have to regularly evaluate the items in my home. This is the reason I came up with this challenge. My home needs this. I feel so much happier with less stuff cluttering my home, and I don’t have to spend nearly as much time cleaning. Those of you who know me well known that cleaning is one of my least favorite things to do. 😉
So, I hope you will join me for the next 30 days. You shouldn’t have to spend more than 15 minutes per day. If you don’t have an extra 15 minutes (really?), then set your alarm 15 minutes earlier. I promise you won’t miss the minutes, and you will be so thankful for the peace that a de-cluttered home will bring.
Follow my blog to join the fun. You will receive emails each time a new blog is posted. You can also follow me on social media for daily updates. Go ahead and reserve 15 minutes tomorrow to begin clearing the clutter from your home. See you tomorrow!
