Declutter Challenge Day 1: Making decisions

Declutter Challenge Day 1:  Making decisions

Today’s challenge is a simple one:    Think about your home, and what you want it to look like in 30 days.  Do you want it to be a place where you’re excited when guests drop by unexpectedly? A home where you can easily find whatever it is you’re looking for?   Someplace that doesn’t look like you just got robbed?

We’re not going for perfection here.  We’re going for improvement.  And the key to success this month will be making decisions.  Each day, actively decide to get rid of at least one thing.  If you can do more, all the better — remember, every single decluttering decision you make this month will move you closer to your goal.

The whole house is game — and we’ll get to every bit of it by the end of the month. For today, start with something easy:  Last year.  Get rid of anything that expired last year, including last year’s coupons, last year’s mail, and last year’s milk.

Let’s move on to 2014’s decluttering challenge!

    Today, I’m getting rid of my window-candle decorations. They’re anemic light, they’re cheap decorations, and they don’t live up to the standards of my childhood memories. Whether I’ll replace them next Christmas, we’ll see. For now, they’re not worth storing and they’re going.
