Declutter Challenge

I've hit another "I can't stand all the stuff in this house" cycle again.

I've decided that this is "get serious about decluttering" week. We have nothing going on this week and I'm determined to shovel out some of our clutter.

I think for accountability I will post my progress.

Want to join me?

I've done this a couple times before - challenging myself and others to 5 things each day to release from your home?

Let me know in the comments if you're joining me. Let's live lighter, so we can live more fully.


  1. I'll join you! I just posted about the "Peripheral Dump" I did over the weekend, but like you, I know there's much more I can release!

    1. Thanks for joining me - I'm working on it right now!

  2. I'll join you too. I need to start somewhere!

  3. Jill, you have been such an inspiration to me already this summer. When you posted photos of decluttering of some of your kitchen shelves or bathroom drawers, it reminded me how simple a thing it can be.

    So I've already swept out my main kitchen cabinet

    I don't know if I'm up to Five A Day, but please know that you are encouraging us! And you're awesome in a very simple way.


    1. Thanks : ) I find that every time I do another round of decluttering I am able to fine at least one thing I can part with. And every little bit helps me get to where I want to be.

  4. I took about 35 books, a large bag of clothes and some misc. household stuff to Sally Ann and I have filled the shredder basket 3x this last week.

    Thanks for the inspiration, Jill.
