What I Learned From My “Clear the Clutter” Challenge + a Giveaway

Well, it’s over.  Done.  Finished.  I worked on clearing the clutter for 30 days and I wrote about it for slightly longer (because I’m slow).  Today I want to make a little confession and invite you to enter my $25 Amazon eGift card giveaway!

My Clear the Clutter Confession

Here it is:  I’m not finished.  Yep.  That’s right.  It was just too much stuff to try to clear in 30 days.  Maybe if I were more gung-ho or had more energy/clarity/gumption.  I don’t know what I need, but whatever it is, I don’t have enough of it to do that much purging in thirty days!


Most of the challenges I did finish, but a few of them (especially craft supplies, paper clutter, and master closet) are going to take a week or two each to do correctly.  I am determined to do it though.

Here are a few things I learned during the Clear the Clutter Challenge:

  • We have way too much stuff.
  • I really want to start crafting and decorating again.
  • I’m not the only one in this house with a slight tendency toward hoarding!

Also, it has really become clear to me that my need to keep so much stuff is much more emotional than it is physical.  I’ve decided to let go.  I am keeping what has value or meaning and what has potential and then the rest of the stuff is going.

Now I know not a soul really wants to keep cleaning out things over and over, but if that is what must be done, then that is what I shall do!  So I am going to begin the whole challenge over again.  It will be a little easier this time because some of the smaller challenges are finished and I can dedicate extra days to the large ones–like my craft hoard.  It would be absolutely wonderful if some more people would join me!
