30 day declutter challenge

This month I have took on a little challenge, one to spend 30 days decluttering! I’ve made it really achievable, little areas each day in the hope to make my home more organised overall.

30 day declutter challenge – how it works

Basically you’ll be spending a small amount of time each day getting your home decluttered. If there is a day that isn’t relevant to you then you’re welcome to skip that or choose something else.

Also, there are 4 days in the 30 days where you’re welcome to choose an area that is important to you and not covered by my declutter challenge.

30 day declutter challenge – my tips

If you’re someone who works from home, or is a stay at home parent, then I suggest working on the challenge as soon as you are awake and alert for the day. If you have school age children then aim to get this done once they are safely deposited at school.

I have a 17 month old at home and she is only at nursery 1 morning a week. This means I have to do a lot of my own de-cluttering during nap time. I’ve already tested out this 30 day declutter challenge and it is possible to declutter most areas in well under 15 minutes.

30 day declutter challenge – what to do with all the items

Personally I did the following:

  • Donated items to charity shop or the foodbank
  • Gave items away to friends
  • Sold items on *eBay
  • Sold items on Facebook marketplace
  • Recycled or shredded items (paperwork)
  • Sold items to Ziffit (Use them via TopCashBack to get yourself some more monies!)

Also, don’t forget that you can donate items to schools, churches, colleges, nurseries, nursing homes and even animal rescue centres.

I would absolutely love people to take part in this challenge. I’ve decided to start it in October so people can declutter before Christmas AND make some extra money too.

However, you’re welcome to jump in at any time and take part. Please do let me know how you got on! You can reach me on my Instagram if you want to chat more!

I really hope that this challenge will help you declutter your home in just 15 minutes a day! I love running through this 30 day declutter challenge once a year, soon gets my home organised again and makes me feel all clean, tidy and organised!

I’ve started to declutter, my living room is done, and I’ve even managed to make a bit of money from selling online, which has given me the incentive to continue.
