Need some organizing motivation and inspiration, or a gentle nudge? Simply subscribe to my blog to receive mini-organizing challenges several weekends a month. They will be automatically emailed to you so you won’t have to remember to visit the blog.
Mini-organizing challenges are doable and will focus on decluttering a tiny area of your home. If the weekend challenge “speaks” to you, then set your timer for 30 minutes and start organizing/decluttering. Stop when the timer goes off then enjoy the rest of your weekend knowing that you accomplished something! Of course, you may continue organizing if you have gained the momentum you needed.
I came up with this challenge after working with a client in her clothing room (larger than a clothing closet). While she was doing a bang-up job editing clothing from her wardrobe we discovered a small pile of belts. “I don’t even wear belts,” she stated. Guess what happened next….the belts were placed into her donation bag. No second thoughts because she was determined to pair down and eliminate things she didn’t wear. Yay client!
How many belts do you wear? During this challenge, gather and try on all your belts. Toss broken or severely worn ones. Let them go if they don’t fit or if their color or style isn’t working for you. Time to get on with this challenge! P.S. Remember when suspenders were in?
