Do you have too much stuff? Are you trying to figure out where to start when it comes to decluttering? Do you have a hard time letting go of possessions that no longer have value?
Many of our fellow i Dream of Clean readers are in the same boat.
On a whim last year, I got an idea to bring us all together and jump start our decluttering process. It was incredibly productive so I think it’s time to bring it back for another year.
#streamlineJULY: a decluttering and Instagram challenge!
I think the challenge will be fun if we all do it together. Plus, the daily prompts will help us get creative and see our possessions in a new light as we let go of 31 items over the next month.
Print the calendar out and tape it to your fridge, save it to your phone, or like it on Instagram so you can find it quickly.
Here’s how it works:
- There aren’t set rules. Play for one day or the entire month.
- Let the daily prompt inspire you to get rid of something you don’t use. (For example, “circle” is the daily prompt for day 12. You may find a vase that you don’t need. Or socks with circle holes in them. Or styrofoam balls you’ve been waiting to use for a craft project for way-too-long.) Get creative!
- Take a pic daily and share on Instagram (or other social media sites) using #streamlineJULY. If you aren’t on Instagram, try it!
- Be generous with your likes and words of affirmation to your fellow decluttering friends.
