Weekend Mini-Organizing Challenge: Guest Room


Need some organizing motivation and inspiration, or a gentle kick in the rear:) Subscribe 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 de-cluttering a tiny area of your home.

If the weekend challenge “speaks” to you, then set your timer for 30 minutes and start organizing/de-cluttering. Stop when the timer goes off and enjoy the rest of your weekend knowing that you accomplished something! Of course you may continue organizing if you have gained the momentum you were looking for.

Mini-Challenge: Start De-cluttering the Guest Room

Is your guest room fit for guests or has it turned into a dumping ground for stashing things before company arrives? Sort of ironic isn’t it:) If you are expecting overnight guests during the holiday season, this weekend would be good time to start de-cluttering the guest room.  You’ll be less frantic and less overwhelmed when you start now and start small—30 minutes at a time.

Here are some ideas for starting small. Set your timer and focus on one.

1. Clear off the bed

2. Wash the bedding

3. Clear off the nightstand

4. Make space in the closet

5. Clean out one drawer

My guest area is ready for my brother’s Thanksgiving visit and my sister’s visit over Christmas.
