30 Day Declutter Challenge

Ready to start conquering clutter in your home?

The 30-Day Declutter Challenge is designed to help you do a quick declutter of some of the most clutter-prone spaces in a home.

Make this challenge as easy or as intense as you’d like.

You can decide to spend just 10-minutes a day decluttering, or keep working on a space until it’s done.

You may find that you can declutter some areas quickly, and other spaces will take way more time than you have.

That’s okay!

This challenge is designed to help you quickly rotate through the commonly-cluttered spaces in your home, and get rid of things that you don’t use or need.

The goal isn’t to have everything perfectly decluttered.

Instead, you’re removing that “first layer” of clutter that’s easier to get rid of.

Let’s get started!

How to Declutter

For the first day of the challenge, your goal is to go through the house and get rid of anything that’s obviously trash.

It’s a quick and easy way to get rid of the little wrappers, papers, and broken items that have started to blend into the background of your home.

After that, you’ll be more strategic with your decluttering by following these steps:

  1. Empty the area you’re going to declutter and put it somewhere else. Only empty out what you can reasonably go through in your allotted time. So, if you’re working for ten minutes, just remove things from a shelf or a drawer.
  2. Get rid of trash and clean out the space.
  3. Fill a bag or box with things to donate.
  4. Put away things that belong somewhere else in your home.
  5. Put remaining items back into the space.
  6. Make notes about how you might like to better organize the space you just decluttered.
