30-Day Declutter Challenge

Reading Time: 3 minutes

If you looked around your house right now, how would the sight make you feel? If the answer sounds like “overwhelmed,” “anxious,” or “upset,” you’re not alone.

Our simple 30-day challenge to declutter your life might just be the answer you need to clear your mind and put you and your home back on track.

I hate clutter as much as anyone, but it never seems to go away no matter how hard I try to rid it from my life. Remember when you first moved into your new home and everything was neat and tidy? When you knew where everything was and everything looked clean and perfect?

Yeah, I don’t either.

A very messy living area.
Or maybe your house looks a little more like this.

Now is the time to reclaim your home, and get back on track! Our home is our sanctuary from the chaos around us, and If I want to live in a place that makes us feel relaxed and calm after a day out at work or running errands, then it’s up to us to make it happen.

So take the 30-day declutter challenge to clear your mind and home of chaos. And if you’re looking for a buddy to join the challenge with you, share this with friends and family! It’s always a great motivator to have someone close give you that extra motivation every day.
