Day 21. Declutter and organize the entryway or front hall closet.
Make a place for everything. When you come in your house, is there a designated place to put your wallet, keys, purse, or coat? Whenever you come in the door, let there be a clear place for these items instead of dropping them on the floor or on a chair. Note how when the closet is less cluttered, it is easier to put away your things! My kids each have one hook on the wall, and they know that as soon as they come in the door, the backpack goes on the hook. Inside the closet they each have a box (labelled with their name) for their shoes, and one for their coats. By making it within their reach they are able to learn to put away their own things when we come home.
New Year’s Resolution: Declutter Your Life
Every day in January, there will be a short post with one area to minimize and declutter. There will be tips and tricks, encouraging articles to read, and some advice on how to proceed. Each image and challenge will also be on the Simple Adventure facebook page. Or you can join the facebook group: Declutter You Life for encouragement throughout January. If you want a place to ask questions, share your triumphs, or post your decluttered area, then comment and join the conversation on that day’s post!
You can also sign up for the Simple Adventure Newsletter to receive updates every few weeks. I’ll send you my favourite articles since the last newsletter.
