30 – Day Home Detox Challenge

The 30 day home detox challenge is designed to jumpstart your organization and decluttering habits. It will help you clear out all of the “stuff” that is weighing you down and motivate you for the new year.

For the next month, we will be doing a detox of your home.  This is intended to be a CHALLENGE. We will be going thoroughly through different areas in your home. In the end, I promise you will feel like you can take on the world. I do this deep detox of my home every spring. I will be sharing videos of my detox on my Instagram story – follow me here. This detox keeps me mindful of my purchases and gives me room to grow.

WHAT DO I NEED TO GET STARTED ON THIS DETOX HOME CHALLENGE?

  • Your favorite cleaning supplies
  • Garbage bag and a recycling bag.
  • Clear storage containers.
  • Cabinet organization system.
  • Closet organization system.
  • Sage or incense.

TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL HOME DECLUTTERING CHALLENGE.

  1. Remember that this is just a detox – it has likely taken you years to accumulate all of your stuff so don’t feel bad if it takes you some time to get rid of it!
  2. Get rid of any possible distractions.  Put away your phone, turn off notifications.
  3. Work quickly.  Put on a timer and work as quickly as you can for the full time.  Don’t spend time debating about things that you’re not sure about.  Instead, target all of those obvious items that you know need to go.  There will be more time for other items when we work on the individual rooms.
  4. Stay focused. If you have a lot of decluttering to do, it can be easy to get overwhelmed.  Just remember –one space at a time.  Pull out only what you have time for.  You don’t want a bigger mess in the end than what you started with!
  5. Don’t let perfection get in the way – just get started!!
  6. Take your detox by categories. I’ve organized the list to go through your pseronal space in the first week, living space in the second week, storage in the third week and misc. on the fourth week.
