The Art of Decluttering

I can hardly wait for the first of the year to be here so I can start Peter Walsh's "#31Days2GetOrganized" again!  Were you wondering if I was going to do it again?  Can your Instagram or Facebook news feed handle it again?!  Don't worry, I'm going to do it differently this THIRD time.  After going through it twice now, completing 62 challenges (here's where I started exactly a year ago, here's what I learned, and here's where I did it again (see videos below)), I've come a long way and letting go of stuff isn't as hard as it used to be, tell it to your neighbor!  For me, one of the keys to letting go is bringing all the stuff (the "challenge" of the day) out to one spot.  When I'm alarmed by the quantity, I can let go.

For example when I brought all the toys from around the house into one spot and it covered the living room floor, I was alarmed and letting go was easy!

So this time I'm going to bring it all out (whatever the challenge of the day is) and do something fun and creative with the "stuff".  This will help me look forward to the challenge and not procrastinate.  I'll take one photo of the creation and post it on Instagram and Facebook with the hashtags #TheArtOfDecluttering and #31Days2GetOrganized.  Follow along by liking my Facebook page or following me on Instagram.

If you're interested in doing the challenges too, that would make me very happy!  The more friends doing this together the more motivating it is to finish.  Watch Peter's intro video (above), he's as excited as I am for this to start!  To participate, like his page and/or subscribe to his YouTube channel for the daily challenges!  It's a 10-15 minute challenge a day for 31 days in January.  If you'd like to see the progress I've made, watch the two video's below:

I can't wait, it's going to be fun!  Join me!
