This will be the year I rid clutter from my life!
I am no minimalist, but I do go through regular purging cycles so my clutter is kept somewhat under control. However, 2011 proved to be such a chaotic year for me that things are piling up again. Time to get motivated and do a major declutter project!
Starting in January I will be updating you on my progress every week on my blog, The Single Saver. I will be tracking the number of items I declutter from my home, and I will also be keeping track of the money I earn when I sell an item in this challenge.
I will purge at least 366 items of clutter from my life in 2012 (366 items because 2012 is a leap year with 366 days - so I will be aiming for an average of one item per day)! My motivation to keep going will be my accountability to you, my blog readers. And I am asking you to join me. Are you in?
The rules are simple:
1.) Declutter 366 (or more) items from your home.
2.) Items may be donated, sold, or given away to count towards the 366 item total.
3.) Trash does not count towards the 366 item total... but you are encouraged to get rid of it, too!
4.) Items don't count towards the 366 total until they actually leave your house... we all know how easy it is to set aside something to sell or donate, only to forget it about it and have it contribute to clutter in anther room of the house. Our goal is to get rid of clutter, not just move it around. :)
5.) Tell me you are participating in the Challenge and I will add your name to the official list of challengers, below!
