Easy 31 Day Declutter Challenge

Easy 31 Day Declutter Challenge

2 years ago, I did a simple 31 Day Declutter Challenge. It was just 15 minutes of decluttering per day, for every day of the month. This year I'm going to do the challenge again (starting on January 1st) and I want to invite you to join me! 

I'll be sharing before & after photos every day on Instagram, during the month of January. If you'd like to join in, please share your photos on Instagram (in a post or story) and tag me @raisingmemories! If you tag me, I can share your posts on my stories so we can all be inspired by each other!

How the 31 Day Declutter Challenge Works:

  1.  Make a declaration to the internet of your intentions, to keep you accountable (tag me @raisingmemories in your post- I'd love to see it!)
  2.  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 and tag me @raisingmemories in your posts!)
  3.  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 and share them with everyone else who's following along!  

Let's all be inspired by each other!

I'm not going to lay out a list of areas for you to declutter for two reasons: First, I I want to be able to choose the area based on how I'm feeling that day. Second, we all have different homes with different problem areas, so my goal is simply this:

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!)

If you'd like an easy way to organize your plan, I'm sharing a free printable worksheet!

I hope you will follow along and let me know you're following along- we can keep each other 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!

  1. I love this idea! I will try it out in the New Year!

    1. Yay! If you can, I'd love for you to post about it & tag me so I can see what you're doing!

  2. I love a good decluttering challenge. It feels so good.

    1. agreed! Today is only the 1st day & I already feel a big difference!

  3. I'm in! My house is always a mess, though I'm sure the man at the return it depot doesn't like me. Too much cardboard after moving house. Haha

  4. I've made a bit of a dent with my home office, but going through kiddo's things (which are invading my home office) is another challenge altogether.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment- I love reading them! :)
