How To Minimise Household Clutter – 10 Things To Declutter In 10 Days

Do you have a tendency to hold onto things and procrastinate at the sheer thought of decluttering?

Perhaps you struggle to say goodbye to your belongings….just in case it comes in handy ONE day?

I’m a firm believer that decluttering material possessions that no longer serve you results in a less cluttered mind and also helps you focus on the items you value most.

One reason people put off decluttering is because it seems like it will take too long. Instead of trying to do everything at once, break it down into smaller, more manageable tasks and set aside a small window of time EVERY day to take action. You’ll be amazed at what can be achieved in just a few minutes!

Perfectionism is another huge obstacle for many people when it comes to decluttering. Perfectionism is the enemy of progress. Done is better than perfect.

I’m pumped to get started with our 10 day challenge, but before we dive into decluttering, it’s important to get clear on WHY you’re actually doing this in the first place.

Take a few minutes to reflect on WHY decluttering and simplifying your home will make a difference in your life. Once your vision is crystal clear, it will help you keep it up in the long term and also encourage you to maintain your newly decluttered environment.

It’s time to take action. Let’s make it happen!

I know that decluttering can seem overwhelming when you first start, so I hope I can encourage and inspire you to stop procrastinating and just get started.

I challenge you to set aside 15 minutes to declutter 10 spaces in 10 days.

5, 4, 3, 2, 1…..let’s go!

Day 1 – Sock Drawer

Day 2 – Medicine Cabinet

Day 3 – Handbag and Wallet

Day 4 – Car

Day 5 – Cosmetics + Personal Care Products

Day 6 – Under the Kitchen Sink

Day 7 – Fridge

Day 8 – Pantry

Day 9 – Desk

Day 10 – Shoes

When you’re finished, be sure to spend a moment or two reflecting on the awesome progress you’ve made and celebrate the wins….big or small.

Decluttering your life is simplifying your life. It’s not about having Pinterest worthy immaculately styled cupboards. And you certainly don’t need to go out and splurge money on fancy organising products to create functional systems + order in your home.

I hope by day 10 you’re feeling lighter, a little less overwhelmed, and motivated to ensure the spaces we tackled remain clutter free and organised! By clearing the clutter and discarding what’s not adding value to your life will allow you to enjoy and appreciate the things you actually use.

My parting tip…don’t keep an item out of emotional guilt. Just because you paid a lot of money for it or it was gifted to you, doesn’t mean you should hang on to it forever. Especially if it serves zero benefits to you or your family and you don’t use it.

Think of your storage space as valuable real estate. Is it worthy of living permanently in your home?
