Take This Challenge With Me! (12 Days of Decluttering)

I recently came across this awesome lady who is a  decluttering coach.  Who doesn’t need one of those, right? Her YouTube channel is called ClutterBug.  Over the holidays she had a series where she tackled an area a day, removing 12 items a day (or more if you like/can) for a grand total of 144 pieces of clutter banished forever!

Here are the areas she conquered:

  1. Kitchen
  2. Bathroom
  3. Bedroom
  4. Clothes
  5. Paper
  6. Closets
  7. Toys (no kids?  Adults have toys too!  Do you REALLY need 15 charger cords?)
  8. Outerwear
  9. Shoes
  10. Freezer
  11. Garage (do a storage room or attic if you don’t have one)
  12.  Junk Drawers & Surface areas

Number 12 is personally my area of weakness.  Y’all pray for me.  I really am not happy about the fact that I am a freaking efficiency machine at work, but at home?  Hobo.  Slob.  Oscar the Grouch’s crib.  Ok, not that bad, but sometimes I feel like this when I look into my junk drawers:

overwhelm

So I’m taking the bull by the horns & getting started.  Now, I don’t want you to think this will be hard.  For you, anyway.  I have a bit of a handicap in this game.  I decluttered before AND after Christmas.  So I’m about to get into the real make/break arena.  So goodbye sentimental T-shirts!  Farewell unnecessary hair items!  So long shoes that I haven’t worn in 5+ years!  Wait…I don’t know about that last one.  But anyway, what do you say?  Want to join me?  If so, let’s do this!

Oh & here’s the 12 Days of Clutter video list.  You can choose to play all or you can use the drop down list at the top left to choose specific days.  Don’t forget to check out her channel and let me know what you think and keep me posted on how it goes!

Enjoy & happy decluttering!!
