Starting Wednesday, June 7, I’m going to start a 30-day declutter challenge and you are invited to join me.
The goal will be to get rid of 300 items by the end of the challenge. You can purge 10 items per day, or go crazy on the weekends. It’s up to you.
Because physical clutter is mental clutter.
“This is the definition of clutter: things that exist in your outer life to distract you from the inner things that you’re avoiding,” says Brooks Palmer.
Why June 7?
Because there’s no better time to start than now.
If you want to participate, there aren’t any hard and fast rules. Just donate, sell or discard 300 items over the next 30 days. You can keep a running total in a notebook, on your phone or anywhere else you’d like.
It’ll be a lot of work, I know.
But here’s where the fun comes in. Every day, you can join others who are participating by visiting my author Facebook page. Post before and after pictures, or discarded item count totals, or comment on the progress of others. And you can grab a little inspiration while you’re there, too.
