What is clutter?
First, let’s understand what exactly clutter is in your home. Clutter can come in a lot of forms including paper, mementos and sentimental items, toys, clothing, tools, home and seasonal decor. There is also mental clutter, but specifically for this challenge, we are working on physical clutter.
Anything in your home can be clutter if there is too much of it or it is stuff that is unorganized. Every home has clutter, so there is nothing to be ashamed about when you are decluttering your home.
Too much clutter in the home can lead people to:
- Stress over having too much stuff
- Spending too much time cleaning and organizing the house because it always feels messy
- Guilt over having an unorganized home
- Not being able to relax in a disorganized home
- Spending more money than necessary because you buy things you don’t realize you already own.
- Missing meetings and appointments because you can’t keep track of paperwork and calendar.
What is the Clear the Clutter Challenge?
Are you starting to feel like you might need a declutter challenge? We are here to help you and we will make it easy to declutter your home in a reasonable amount of time.
The Clear the Clutter Challenge is for people who want to take control of the clutter in their home and live a more clutter free life!
Each week, we will declutter 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.
When you sign up for the Challenge, you will receive a weekly e-mail with tips on the specific challenge.
In addition, you can follow along on Instagram for more tips and support.
We recommend that you purchase the Ultimate Decluttering Guide so that you can have all of the tools to complete each challenge.
If you are are looking for more support and accountability, then you will want to sign up for the Your Clutter-Free Life course. This is a life changing class!

I have tried Decluttering and it never works!
How many times have you tried to declutter your house and it either never gets finished or the clutter comes right back?
In order to keep the clutter out of your home, you need to make a lifestyle change that includes being more mindful about what comes into your home and maintaining the things you have in your home.
What if I do not have time to declutter in the next 8 weeks?
Perhaps this is not the right time for you to join the Clear the Clutter challenge. Or maybe you want to work at your own pace! The Ultimate Decluttering E-Book is full of resources and checklists to help you declutter your home at your own pace. You can still sign up for the weekly e-mails and save them for when you are ready to declutter.
Why Decluttering is Important Right Now
You might be struggling with the motivation to declutter your home right now. But, so many of us who are spending a lot of time at home, it is even more important than ever to clear the physical and mental clutter from our homes!

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, 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!
