4 Weeks to a Clutter Free Home: Challenge #9

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.

Tonight is back to school night for the kids, and they get to meet their new teachers for the year. This means instead of focusing on an in depth project like the kitchen, I’m going to put that aside for the day and shift my focus to my bedroom. 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 #9

  • 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 focusing on our bedroom. Yesterday’s challenge was to clean out unwanted clothing, today I’m going to finish off anything I didn’t get to and really give the bedroom a good once-over.
  • 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 clean out your silverware drawer. Remove the items and vacuum out any crumbs, then wipe down with a damp cloth. Get rid of anything that you really don’t use or need, and put everything back in an organized manner.

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.
