4 Weeks to a Clutter Free Home: Challenge #7

4 weeks challenge

Behind? No problem…you can start this challenge at any time and on any day. You can find all the posts in the 4 Weeks to a Clutter Free Home challenge here.

Yesterday was a slow day for me, so today I’m planning to dig a little deeper into the house and really start to get some organization done. Remember, the tasks for today should be completed with the idea of accomplishing the goals you set up for the week (see Challenge #6 if you missed the details).

Challenge #7

  • 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 starting to re-organize the kitchen cabinets to make them more functional (a multi-day process).
  • 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 minutes and quickly go through your home picking up anything that is out of place and putting it away. Pick up toys that found their way out again, and just a general quick sweep of items that shouldn’t be laying around.

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!).

    Your instructions are clear and easy to follow! I especially like the one where you set the timer.
