Clear Out the Clutter Challenge: Who’s With Me?

I’m having my yearly garage sale next week so this week I’m hard at work clearing clutter out of our rooms, cupboards and closets in preparation. Since I love to encourage simple living on my blog and because I also believe you save a lot of time and money by being organized, I thought it would be fun to include you all in my Clear Out the Clutter Challenge.

Starting tomorrow, we’ll be working through our homes room-by-room in an effort to ruthlessly rid our lives of unnecessary things. You’ll get to see real-time before and after pictures of my efforts (yes, I’m even going to show you inside my closets and cupboards–as humbling as that may be!).

I’ll also be sharing ideas for how to streamline your lives, keep things more organized and clutter-free, and how to make money and bless others with your extra stuff. In addition, I’ll be giving away some of my favorite organization resources and tools to some of you who participate in the Clear Out the Clutter Challenge.

Are you with me? Stay tuned for your first assignments tomorrow morning.

    Okay I must be a big goober, but for the life of me I can’t find the first challenge. Coming in late in the game but what to do all of them!

    This is such a natural time of year to do this sort of thing. We moved just before Christmas and have oodles of stuff that just doesn’t fit this house, not enough closets even though there is more footage. I have been in the kitchen this past week and have gobbs of dishes to go and this weekend as I get out the summer clothes and put winter things away, some is just going out the door! Work requires most of my energy and the going is slow, but I am making progress and this motivation is a good thing, thanks.

    My husband doesn’t read blogs, but when he got up this morning, he started cleaning the garage out. It was a HORRIBLE mess that really made me a bit angry every time I stepped in there. He’s a “keeper” person and I’m a “pitch it” person. It’s not totally finished, but its is so much better! We threw away so much stuff that was unusable, was able to do some organizing, straightening, and it actually looks 1/2 way decent! I can’t wait to see what you post next!

    I love seeing your before & after pictures! We do the SAME thing in our house!! I really should take pictures! Every year April we go through every single corner of our house (attic, garage, closets & all!) and make a huge pile for the annual garage sale! And every year we make $500 plus on our sales so it keeps me motivated to know that extra $$ comes f/ cleaning out the house!!! Thankfully I always have a box in the kitchen that is labeled “garage sale” so as the kids outgrown something I make sure to price it & throw it in there so my pricing doesn’t take so long come sale time! April is my favorite month of the year because it’s clean out time!! Yaaaeeee!
