Why should you work on decluttering and organizing?

When you remove extra “stuff” from your house it can not only clear a spot in your house, but also provide some mental clarity. No matter how much you think that room full of junk isn’t on your mind or that extra pile of clothes in the back of your closet, it is. Whether you realize it or not just one thought about it can cause unnecessary stress.

You can ignore it for as long as you want, but it won’t be going any where until you take care of it. That is where I come in! I am going to be here to remind you of your goals! Take a moment and think about what those goals are. Write them down. Make a mental note. What ever works best for you.

It is back to school time and I am sure you have found clothes that no longer fit, or old school supplies that you won’t use. Maybe the kids have outgrown some toys, or shoes. Or if you have younger children this is the perfect time to get them involved in donation. You can explain to them what it means to donate and why we do it.

  1. We definitely need to declutter! Looking forward to the challenge!

  2. I’ve been on a decluttering mission while I’ve been off work this summer! I feel so much better now that it’s in progress! This looks like a great challenge to take on! Thanks 🙂

  3. It is so hard to find time to declutter with little ones under-toe. I’m looking forward to the challenge, I could definitely use the kick in the butt as well!

    1. becomingschultz says:

      It really is! Just when I get something started we need to do something else and then I’m too tired or forget about what I was doing.

  4. Love this idea. I keep my Home pretty minimalist so I usually don’t have much to pitch, but the change of seasons always bring the need to throw or give away stuff. I subscribed to follow along!

    1. becomingschultz says:

      Thank you so much!

  5. I recently did a 30 day declutter, and it was so great! Other than I’m so out of my mind busy with working and momming full time that I didn’t get all of the challenges done. Still working on it little by little, but it’s becoming something more like 30 weeks… haha

    1. becomingschultz says:

      Haha Every bit counts!

  6. I really need to challenge myself to do this. Our house is pretty organised but there are certainly items that need to be thrown away! The problem is that with a toddler that remembers every single toy he has and will ask for it as soon as he can’t find it you can’t do much decluttering

    1. becomingschultz says:

      My oldest is this way. She always wants the toy I take that hasn’t been played with in a month.

  7. We are cleaning things out now!

    1. becomingschultz says:

      Yay get it out!

  8. I literally just sat down after taking a garbage bag to my kids playroom! I joined the Facebook group- I need to declutter as well!

    1. becomingschultz says:

      The play room is the worst, in my case the living room and their bedroom! haha

  9. Oh I need this challenge so bad. The mess overwhelms!

    1. becomingschultz says:

      It really is! I don’t know about you, but I feel like I don’t know where to start and then well I just don’t.

  10. I’m spending some of my day today decluttering so this is a very helpful post for me. It always feels great to sort through things and of course donate when I can. 🙂

    1. becomingschultz says:

      It quite soothing to be able to step back and see success!

  11. As a mom, I always feel like I need to declutter! Somehow clutter creeps in constantly. Thanks for sharing this!

  12. This sounds like an interesting idea! I do like a good declutter (although it has to be done when hubby and kids aren’t around or they suddenly decide that they can’t possibly live without whatever it is I’m getting rid of…!) #blogcrush

    1. becomingschultz says:

      Thankfully my man works second shift and the kids are almost 3 and 1 they don’t know what they want! HAHA I will be making him get rid of stuff too! He likes to think he has it together but he has more clothes then anyone and doesn’t wear half of them! Not to mention the garage oh man!
