What is the Clear the Clutter Challenge?
For the third year in a row, Keri and I are teaming up for the Clear the Clutter Challenge. Each week, we will tackle a specific area of the home. During this challenge, we will give you 8-10 tasks per week to complete. You can work at your own pace and complete all the tasks in a day or spread them out during the week.
Every Monday, we will share the tasks for the week. In addition, we will give you tips, inspiration and even a little motivation with some fun prizes!
Here is the schedule for the Clear the Clutter Challenge which will run from Monday, January 6th -Monday, March 2nd. The last challenge will be the week of February 24th and we will have a recap on March 2nd. Click on the links below for all the projects we have already done this year!
Jan 6th– Kitchen + Pantry
Jan 13th- Living/Family Room
Jan 20th– Bedroom
Jan 27th- Bathrooms
Feb 3rd- Office + Paperwork
Feb 10th– Kid Spaces + Automobile
Feb 17th– Entryway + Closets (linen, coat)

Don’t worry if you start the challenge late or you fall behind. We encourage you to work at your own pace. But, if you are motivated to get the challenge done in the 8 weeks, we are here to help you do that!

Can I Get Started Early?
Sure! The Clear the Challenge officially begins on January 6th, but we know some of you will be motivated to get started right after the New Year. You can take a look at some of past Clear the Clutter Challenge posts for some inspiration.

Will I Really Be Able to Declutter My House in Eight Weeks?
This Challenge does take a lot of work. If you don’t think you will have time to work on it each week, find a time when it will be possible. Or work at your own pace. Our Eight Week Decluttering Challenge is intended for you to complete your whole home in 8 weeks. But, we know life happens and everyone has a different situation. If you fall behind, pick up where you left off when you can.
There may never be a “right” time to get started but even a little bit of decluttering is better than none at all.
If you are serious about decluttering your home in 2020, then we encourage you to work at this pace! Schedule some time in your calendar each week and hold yourself accountable.
When you declutter your home, you can expect to feel a sense of relief. Your home will feel like a sanctuary and you will not feel like you are constantly cleaning!
