How often do you put something off simply because you’re not sure where to start?

What if you could turn your someday into today, simply by just beginning?

If paralysis by analysis has got you twisted, I’ve got you covered!  If your goal was to get organized in 2020 and it’s been derailed by sickness. Stay home orders. Murder hornets. Radioactive forest fires. alllll of the things, you’re in good company. 

But, you always have a choice.  You can choose to stay where you are, frustrated with your lack of progress, and drowning in the ocean of stuff you created for yourself, or you can make a change.  You can just begin.

Why You Need a Declutter Challenge

If you’ve been around here for more than 0.2 seconds, you know I love a good challenge! I’ve tackled many a declutter goal by incorporating challenges.

Benefits of a Declutter Challenge

  1. Challenges remind you that you’re capable of achieving more than you think.
  2. They remind us that often, the limits that we *think* we have exist only in our minds.
  3. Challenges can reveal your true potential because they show you what you can achieve if you set your mind to it.

100 in 60 Declutter Challenge

100 in 60 is a decluttering method that challenges you to declutter 100 items from your home in only 60 minutes.  

The goal of the process is to motivate you to take quick and decisive action about items that can be removed from your space.

Why an hour-long declutter challenge?

The time element of the challenge is one of the greatest motivators.  Since you only have one hour to complete the challenge, it forces you to take quick, decisive action.  You don’t have five or ten minutes to debate the merits of keeping or removing an item from your home- you must work fast!

Keep your why in your mind! Your dreams of a simplified life are worth the work!

The pace of the challenge keeps you actively engaged, scouring your home for potential decluttering targets!

Plus, it’s much easier to find an hour a few times a week than it is a day or weekend.

What if I don’t have the time to declutter?

Can’t envision having an entire hour to complete this? Make it work for you! Shoot for four 15 minute sessions or 6 sessions that are 10 minutes long. However, you need to break it down is fine. Just aim for 100 items by the end of the cumulative hour. Progress over perfection, mama.

As you progress through the hour, you begin to find a rhythm. Every time you make a decision about an item, you sharpen your decluttering skills.  

The more you practice, the easier it becomes to eliminate unnecessary items from your space.
