February Declutter Calendar 2024

How to Use the Calendar:

Are you ready to declutter and get organized this February? I have designed my calendar to tackle these areas to help you to declutter and organize before this Spring!

  • Week 1: Focus: 1st of the month reset– Get your 1st of the month tasks done and take any donations from last month to the donation center.
  • Week 2: Focus: Paper– Declutter and organize your AUTO files.
  • Week 3: Focus: Home– Declutter different categories in your entryway or mudroom.
  • Week 4: Focus: Digital– Declutter and organize your phone apps.
  • Week 5: Focus: Categories– Declutter old pencils, Tupperware, party supplies, and LEAP DAY.

***Note*** I follow my Sunday planning routine each weekend to help organize and make the most of my time each week.

Here are a few reminders for the February Declutter Calendar:

  • Remember, each daily task is designed to take just 15-20 minutes.
  • You can always do more if you like, but the goal is to keep it manageable.
  • Decluttering and organizing are personal journeys, so make it work for you.
  • I recommend reading my article, “Choose Your 15 Minutes a Day,” before you begin to create the right mindset.

3rd-Week Focus: Area of the home- Entryway

This week, take the time to declutter your entryway, front closet and /or mudroom. Every house is different, but normally there is an area that starts collecting jackets, shoes, winter gear, and what have you. Take this week to put hang everything up and clear out some of the clutter.

  • Day 12: Declutter shoes
  • Day 13: Declutter jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, and coats
  • Day 14: Declutter purses, bags, and reusable shopping bags
  • Day 15: Declutter mail and papers
  • Day 16: Declutter any pet items
  • Day 17 & 18: Enjoy the Weekend and Plan your upcoming week!

4th-Week Focus: Digital- Phone Apps

This is an area that I really need to focus on this month! These apps creep up on me, and without realizing it, I am inundated with too many apps on my phone. For me, this can make me overwhelmed everytime I look at my phone and it takes me longer to find the app that I really need. Pro Tip: Also take the time to mute or remove any notifications from these apps. Those little red numbers are little thiefs of attention and time. If you really don’t need them, turn them off!

  • Day 19: Start deleting apps that you do not use
  • Day 20: Keep deleting!
  • Day 21: Delete, delete, delete!
  • Day 22: Create folders for the apps that you use, and take the time to make sure they are not too crowded.
  • Day 23: Keep categorizing your apps and take the time to turn off any notifications that aren’t essential.
  • Day 24 & 25: Enjoy the Weekend and Plan your upcoming week!

5th-week Focus: Declutter By Category

I love using these short weeks to declutter small categories for easy wins. If you find that these categories aren’t relevant to you, are there similar categories in your home that you can find to do a quick declutter? Let me know in the Facebook group how it went for you!

  • Day 26: Declutter old pencils- if they are broken or don’t work- throw them out!
  • Day 27: Declutter plastic storage in kitchen- This should be quick! If anything is missing lids or badly stained, cracked, or just not useful, get it out of your cabinet or drawer.
  • Day 28: Declutter party supplies: I keep a little tote of party supplies, but it can get cluttered up with extra stuff. So extra crepe paper, random napkins and plates, I would consider giving those away if I don’t see a good use for them
  • Day 29: LEAP DAY! Take today to get a to-do item off your list.

  1. I love the way you break everything down into small manageable tasks, Jana. Do you know about the organizing card deck that Jonda Beattie and I created? Organize Your Home 10 Minutes at a Time. We have an affiliate program which may work well with what you do. If you’re interested send me a message and I can share details with you.

  2. These tiny tasks, grouped by specific categories, are terrific! So often we don’t do anything because we think we have to devote hours to making a change. However, 10-15 minutes a day to release, organize, and declutter adds up to a lot of progress.

  3. I really love your monthly approach. By breaking everything down into such small steps across the calendar, you make it easy (atomic habits) but also consistent. And of course, because I’m Paper Doll, I especially approve of week #2 and the paper files! Yay!
