Did you join us in January for the 10 Minutes A Day Decluttering Challenge? We are taking just ten minutes a day to remove clutter from one area of our homes. Part of healthy living is creating comfortable and energizing spaces in our homes, rather than living with draining, overwhelming areas.
You have probably discovered by now that clutter can be a constant challenge, and sometimes the clutter isn’t just what you can see on the surfaces of your home. Clutter can be hidden too.
As I mentioned in my Weekly Plan, my 10 minutes a day project for this week is Digital Photo Organization.
You can read about my Digital Photo Organization Plan here. I would love to say that I have kept up with the plan, but this is one area that is a constant struggle.
What is your clutter challenge? Leave a comment so we can encourage each other!
(You can also leave a link to photos of your progress!)

I went through my kid’s clothes and refolded and got rid of the ones that are too small. Felt great. Now maybe they’ll wear more than just the few outfits that are on the top!
I find organizing digital photos to be much more intimidating than decluttering a space in my home.. I’ll have to set aside some time to start that soon, I know I won’t want to be sitting at the computer organizing pics once spring comes!
Yesterday I decluttered and cleaned the space above my kitchen cabinets. We’ve had a wine/vinyard theme to our kitchen for awhile now, and I decided it’s no longer my style. We have very high ceilings and I always felt the cabinets needed something to fill in all the empty space- but after taking everything down (and putting it all in my yard sale box), I’m finding I love the look of unadorned cabinets, it gives the whole kitchen a more calm feeling!
Good for you Pam. I love how rooms feel once I declutter them. 🙂

Since January, we have kicked it into high gear! Decluttering used to be only rearranging things neater, but now we are getting rid of stuff. Rearranging clutter means you have to go back and rearrange again. Stuff we don’t use, and don’t absolutely love is leaving our home. We won’t have to touch, clean, or rearrange those items again. Since January over 1,000 items are gone, and more are on the chopping block. Goodbye clutter, goodbye!
“Rearranging clutter means you have to go back and rearrange again.” That is such a good point Teresa! Sounds like you have made some very impressive progress. 🙂
I’ve been doing something similar… more like 1 room or section a week. I started with my bathroom linen closet. A trip to Dollar Tree and $6 later, I now have bins with everything grouped. It gave me more space for towels and washcloths. And now… I actually use the junk I had in there but was just shoved on a shelf. :p
Yesterday, I decluttered and organized a corner of our garage. Took me more like an hour, but I hung things to hold the yard tools and wheel barrow (all my org stuff was in a box shoved in that very corner… ugh)… Now, I can get to my sprinkler control box without risking serious injury. 😉
Next up is my office…. oh boy. Maybe this would be better served as a 10 minute a day project. 😉
Good for you! Sounds like you have been busy. 🙂
