While the Lenten season has passed, I would like to propose the concept of decluttering one item everyday for 40 days as a process for decluttering.
If you are still struggling to get started or were able to get rid of the trash and recyclables yet still can’t make decisions about the remaining stuff, this concept may work for you.
What if you committed to purge one item each day for the next 40 days or even the next 30 days? What impact would that make in your life? Your home? Your office?
By making this commitment it set up to make a choice each day…one step each day to getting rid of clutter and potentially more.
My experience from my 40- or 30-day challenges to myself, is that I ended up letting go of more than 30 or 40 items. Most times it is multiple items a day or even bags (small and large depending on the area).
So, are you ready to commit to a 40-day purge?
