30 Areas in 30 Days....My Plan to Declutter

  I figure that since I don't have anything else to do......bwahhhaaahaha......that I should come up with a plan to declutter.  I have been saying that I want a simpler household that is more organized and is less chaotic.  I want more order and less junk.  I want plans to carry out my goals.  I figured that since I was on a roll with the menu planner, that I would just go ahead and come up with a "decluttering plan" while I was at it.  I found the basic idea for the plan on "Pinterest"....aka..."The website that is responsible for great amounts of lost time".

  So, during my sacred bath time last night, I created the plan.  I actually carried a notebook and a pen to the bathtub with me.  I sat in the warm bath.... visualizing every section of my house...one room at a time.  Each area that had too much clutter in my visualization, got added to the page.  Then, I typed it up into a neat little list and hung it on my fridge.
 

  I figure that if I start my list tomorrow, that I will have a clutter free home by the end of February.  Each day, I will choose something off the list based on how much time I can allot to the chore, and declutter just that one small section.  That's the plan, anyway.  I can think of about 972 things that will possibly interfere with this plan, but I'm gonna give it a go.

I'll let you know how it's going....and feel free to share or use the idea to declutter your own home.  I can already sense that the chaos is leaving my home....ahhhh.

This is such a great idea! The problem with the areas at my house, though, is that they just don't stay clean :)
