The Declutter Challenge

30 Day Declutter Challenge

Detoxing Your Home, Detox Your Mind

A cluttered home = A cluttered mind. Don’t believe us? Just Google it!

There’s a science behind it. When your space is cluttered, so is your mind. A cluttered space leads to anxiety, a decreased ability to focus, and increased stress (among other things). So decluttering our space just makes sense. And since spring is upon us, it’s time for a little spring cleaning! Here are tips to help you create your 'Spring Cleaning Checklist':

Tip #1: Haven’t worn it in a year? Time to go!

A wardrobe overhaul should be on every spring cleaning list, but letting go of our old clothes can be hard. So let’s create a rule. If you haven’t worn it in over a year, you’re probably not going to - ditch it!

Tips #2: Declutter and Donate.

Your wardrobe isn’t the only space of your house that needs a good spring cleaning. It’s time to declutter everything. So download our '30 Day Declutter Challenge' & list 30 areas of your life that need a good old sort. Cupboards, counters, drawers - set aside time to go through it all. And just like the wardrobe rule, if you don’t use it - lose it.

The less things you have in your home, the easier it will be to keep clean and decluttered in the future. So what you don’t use, donate to someone in need. It will make you feel better about getting rid of the things you used to love.

Tip #3: Bin and Box it

After a long busy day, it’s easy to come home and throw your post down on the side. But when it’s the mail, your purse, pens and paper, your keys, and so forth, your space can quickly become cluttered & seem messy.

So here’s what to do.

Bin and Box it. Put a small tray or wicker basket where you’d normally throw your post. Instead of throwing your mail on the side, throw it in there. Buy another small basket to put your pens and scrap paper in. Buy a small decorative box to store your keys. Put all of your child’s toys in a large toy box. And so forth.

Your 'baskets' might be disorganised - but your house won’t be & either will your view!

Tip #4: Create a Decluttering/Spring Cleaning Checklist

It’s one thing to say that you’re going to declutter the house, but making an actual checklist of what needs to be done will help you to accomplish those goals. Checklists not only make it easier to remember the things you need to do, but also help you to stay focused on the tasks at hand.

Tip #5: Declutter in Stages

Spring Cleaning can seem overwhelming, so it’s important that you realize that you don’t have to do it all at once. You can do it in stages. A drawer one day, under the stairs the next, a day for bathroom cupboards, a day for clothes, and so on and so forth.

Don’t put too much pressure on yourself, or you could become overwhelmed and give up. Do it in stages. One small task a day is 30 small tasks a month.

You’ll see but most of all feel the difference, we promise!
