Happy New Year! I cannot believe it’s already 2023, can you? I’m feeling great about the new year and ready to tackle some organizing and decluttering projects that I’ve definitely put off over the holidays. If you would like to join me…please grab your 30-Day Declutter Checklist and head over to the FB group to join in on the fun!
So what is this declutter checklist all about? In this checklist, I chose different categories to declutter. While I know most people think about their home as full of clutter, I think it’s just as important to take the time to declutter our digital lives as well. If you are interested in taking my 7 Day Digital Declutter challenge, read all about it here.
How to use the checklist
Feel free to use the checklist as you see fit. You can follow it in order or scan it and find the one that sounds the most interesting to you on any given day. It’s up to you! Some categories will take a little more physical energy while some can be done from your phone while sitting on your couch.
Only do 15 minutes
For each item on the checklist, I encourage you to ONLY spend 15 minutes on any given item. It is possible to really dive deep into some of these. I know when I hear “declutter the garage” in 15 minutes, my eyes roll and I mutter something about “impossible.” I know, I get it. But, the point is to start building the habit of decluttering and organizing EVERY day for a small time. The point is NEVER to exhaust yourself to the point that you give up completely! Small efforts over time can create a huge change!
Declutter Checklist Categories
The checklist has 4 broad groups- physical spaces, physical categories, digital, and paper. I find that there are many ways to declutter and this is how I tend to think about them. The physical spaces are rooms or specific spaces in your home. The second grouping is “categories.” I personally really like this method of decluttering and I talk more about it here. The third grouping is digital decluttering, and I know that this applies to everyone as our cell phone and computer use continue to increase. And the last category for decluttering is paper. Paper lives all by itself because it is a beast! To read more about my 5 step paper decluttering, head over to the article.
Ok! That’s it! I hope you find the 30-Day Declutter Checklist helpful, and I always want to hear back about what worked for you and what didn’t.
Happy Organizing Y’all!
