How to Use the Calendar:

Are you ready to declutter and get organized this March? I have designed my calendar to tackle your home, paperwork, and digital life for a fresh start to 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 FINANCIAL files.
  • Week 3: Focus: Home– Declutter different categories in your HOME OFFICE.
  • Week 4: Focus: Digital– Declutter and organize your COMPUTER DESKTOP.
  • Week 5: Focus: Categories– Declutter t-shirts, pet toys, electronics, empty boxes, and plasticware.

***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 March 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- Home Office

Since we are already working on our financial paperwork, let’s take some time to make sure our home office is decluttered and tidied up! Remember, start small and dedicate 10-15 minutes at a time.

  • Day 11: Declutter old magazines and newspapers
  • Day 12: Declutter already read or unwanted books

4th-Week Focus: Digital- Computer Desktop & Digital Files

Keeping with our “office” theme, take some time this week to clear up your computer desktop and digital files. Many times, these can become “digital junk drawers” where a lot of files get lost. Ensure you create a system that helps you quickly retrieve your necessary and most important files.

  • Day 18: Start by clearing off your computer desktop!
  • Day 19: Delete unnecessary files
  • Day 20: Delete, delete, delete!
  • Day 21: Create broad digital folders for the main “themes” of your digital files
  • Day 22: Keep categorizing, deleting, and organizing
  • Day 23 & 24: Enjoy the Weekend and Plan your upcoming week!

5th-week Focus: Declutter By Category

I love decluttering by categories!! Sometimes, tackling an entire space in my home can feel overwhelming, so breaking it down into smaller parts makes it seem much more doable. So here are a few categories for this last week of March that you can tackle in about 15 minutes!

  • Day 25: T-shirts- go through your t-shirts to see if there are any “easy targets” that you can get rid of. If they are stained, ripped, or never worn, it’s time to let them go.
  • Day 26: Pet toys- any chewed up, broken, exceptionally stinky, or unloved toys are good targets for decluttering
  • Day 27: Electronics- take time to declutter any unused or broken electronics. Here are some ideas of where to recycle old electronics so they do not cause harm to the environment.
  • Day 28: Empty Boxes- Take the time to get rid of empty boxes from purchases, shipping boxes, and other boxes that have been collected.
  • Day 29: Plasticware- Any plasticware that has been collected and will not be used.
  • Day 30 & 31: Enjoy the Weekend and Plan your upcoming week! Happy Easter!

  1. What a terrific decluttering plan you created! I like that it focuses your energy on doing short organizing bursts of activity.

    One of my favorite things is preparing papers for the accountant for tax time. In that process, I get to do a lot of shredding, which always feels freeing. And most decluttering gives that same feeling- positive, lighter, happier.

  2. I love how you take the reader by the hand and walk through the schedule. As we see, so many clients aren’t even sure where to begin, and giving them this game plan ensures that something gets done every day to move forward, especially on prepping for taxes. Great job!
