Does cleaning your home seem like a never-ending battle? The 31 Day Declutter Challenge may be your answer to a happier life. (Check out my Spring Cleaning Checklist that could be used any time of year).
Are you tired of the clutter taking over your life?
I know I am.
Things seem to be piling up at a fast speed with kids, pets, and the demands of working from home.
Here’s the thing, I don’t have time or energy to continuously organize, clean and search for things.
When I try to sort items I have kids behind me creating a new mess. Thus, the chaotic cycle continues.
There has to be an easier way to keep our homes tidy.
I have found a solution to live more with less.
Introducing the 31 day declutter challenge
Why spend time decluttering?
The fewer items you have means the fewer items you have to pick up, organize and store!
Also, it’s been proven that organized spaces reduce stress, improve moods, and improve your eating and exercise habits.

How to declutter and organize your items
Donate – give to a local charity, a friend in need, or church.
Sell – There are some items that you can make money off of if you have the desire to do so. Host a garage sale if you have a lot of items or sell individually online. Remember, to always be safe while selling items online. Always meet in a public location or with those you trust.
