4 Weeks to a Clutter Free Home: Challenge #16

4 weeks challenge

I’m feeling a bit renewed this week as far as getting stuff done. Maybe it is because the weather is finally starting to resemble something close to fall-like, or maybe I’m just ready to finish this project up…either way, onward I go! Remember, the tasks for today should be completed with the idea of accomplishing the goals you set up for the week (see Challenge #15 if you missed the details).

Challenge #16

  • Look at your list of weekly goals and come up with a specific list of 4-5 things you can accomplish today. Don’t spend a ton of time on this step, just use your weekly goals a reference, and narrow down from there how you plan to accomplish at least one of those goals.
    • My list for today includes tackling my front steps. I don’t know how it has become a dumping ground…but it has.
  • Find 5 items to get rid of today. Throw them out, put them in a bin designated for donation items or in a garage sale box. You can also give them to a friend or list them to sell, but make it a goal not to hang onto anything for more than a week. If it doesn’t sell, donate it.
  • Set a timer for 15 – 25 minutes and clean your vents. Vacuum/clean any dirt or grime around the floor vent area and replace the vent. Use a vacuum attachment and/or a wet rag to dust/clean your other vents. If you have a little extra time,and have floor vents that can be removed, remove them and wash them in warm soapy water.

If you feel you are not very good at setting your own goals and making lists, feel free to follow my plan. Work on your an extra room in your home today (or a kids room if you don’t have a spare room), along with the other bullet points, and tomorrow we will have a new area to tackle!

Keep in mind, I do work a full time job outside the home, so all of these tasks are designed to be easily completed regardless of your other commitments.

(Please note: I am not an expert in organization by any means. I simply did a lot of research online and found many many resources on how to accomplish what it is I am looking to do. From there I came up with my own plan for what I thought would be a great way to achieve the goal of an organized home in four weeks. Feel free to take all the time and energy I put into researching this and try to organize your own home!).
