I know I'm not the only one who feels the need to declutter her home, particularly as we begin a fresh new year and make new resolutions! I have been thinking about doing a 31 day decluttering challenge for a long time and this month, I'm finally doing it!
Here are my Step-by-Step Instructions for a 31 Day Decluttering Journey:
- Make a declaration to the internet of your intentions, to keep you accountable (check)
- Commit to share daily before & after photos on social media (I'm doing this on my Instagram stories every day of January & I'd LOVE for you to follow along!)
- Invite friends to join in- Won't you join me?? I would be thrilled to know I'm not alone in this! If you want to participate, just share your before & after photos on Instagram (in your stories, or in a post) and tag me (@raisingmemories) so I can see them!
If enough of you join in, it could be fun to share some of your before & afters in my stories, so we can all be inspired by each other!
Choose One Small Area of your home to tackle each day.
Commit to 15 minutes of Decluttering each day.
You can certainly spend more than 15 minutes if you're really getting into it, but only commit to 15 minutes. This means your daily area must be manageable and you give yourself permission to stop after 15 minutes. (I'm hoping this will help to avoid feelings of overwhelm and/or the desire to give up!)
Well, that's it. I'm jumping into this challenge and I hope some of you will follow along and let me know you're following along- keep me accountable! ;) If you're joining in, I'd love to cheer you on too, so please tag me on instagram @raisingmemories. I'll see you over there!
