How To Stay Motivated and Finally Get that Decluttering Done!

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have heard what I’ve been up to lately. It’s already bringing me a lot of peace and contentment, and I hope it can bring you the same. Here goes … 

I’m working on a 28 Day Declutter Challenge.

I had to muster up the courage even to post that because, let’s face it, decluttering can be hard.

And posting the challenge means, well, I have to do it.

If you’re like me, maybe you’ve put off decluttering your house for a while. And because I know this is an area where I can’t be the only one who struggles … 

I’ve created a whole Decluttering Pack to help you get started and stay motivated on your decluttering journey.

These charts are meant to show your progress so it doesn’t just seem like you’re looking at the same mountain of stuff every day. You’ll be able to see your progress and gain the motivation to move forward.

Track Your Decluttering Progress for Major Motivation

The hardest part about decluttering for me is that it can seem overwhelming. That’s why I created these charts--to help anyone who’s in the same boat. If you can measure and see your progress, it will be so much easier to stick with it.

You can track progress in so many ways with these charts. Track ...

  • The number of items you’ve gotten rid of with the 1000 Decluttered Things chart
  • The number of days you’ve decluttered with the 28 Day Declutter Challenge
  • The amount of time you’ve spent decluttering with the Decluttering Log and Room by Room Decluttering Log
  • Your plan for decluttering with the 7 Day or 30 Day Decluttering Plans (each has two options, so you can pick which one you like best!)
  • Your decluttering goals for every season with the Seasonal Decluttering Goals chart

… Or set your own goals with some just-for-fun charts including Clutter Free Land and the Clutter Be Gone chart of 100 clutter doodles. Color in doodles as you get stuff out of your house, win the game of decluttering, and finally enjoy your home!

The Charts I’m Using Right Now

There are 18 pages in this brand-new set. I’m focusing on just a few for my own decluttering. 

In addition to the 28 Day Decluttering Challenge, I’m using the 7 Day Decluttering Plan to focus on one room per week. The Room by Room Decluttering Log will help me track my progress even beyond the 28 days of this challenge. And the Clutter Free Land game is where I’m tracking my total minutes decluttering (each space is 10 minutes).

How to stay motivated and finally get that decluttering done

Join the Challenge

So many people on Instagram have already committed to the 28 Day Declutter Challenge. And I’m already seeing the benefits of it in my life. Counters are reappearing, broken items are finally leaving the house, and, best of all, I’m starting to feel a real sense of peace in my home.

There’s one really great reason to join me right now: you can get the Decluttering Set FREE for a limited time.

Getting Started

These pages were designed to make decluttering fun, especially for us visual people. It doesn’t matter what work you’ve done--it just matters that you’ve done something each day.

My biggest tip on how to get started if you are totally overwhelmed is this: 

Start small.

Just pick an easy, small VISIBLE space that you feel you can complete in under 15 minutes, and move through that one space.

I say VISIBLE because you want to SEE your progress in your space. I'm not doing drawers and cupboards for this challenge, I'm focusing on the surfaces, countertops, tables, shelves, etc.

Repeat for 28 days.

Declutter one tiny space, that takes no more than 10-15 minutes, every day, and you'll see sooooo much progress by the end of the Challenge.

My biggest hurdle is just starting, once I'm going, I do just fine. So I made my Challenge to just commit to 10 minutes of decluttering a day. It's small enough that it doesn't stop me. I tend to think that if I don't have an hour, then I don't have time to declutter, which I know is a bunch of malarkey, but it stops me nonetheless.

Now I realize that 10 minutes might not seem like much, but it's already making a visible difference!

After decluttering the most visible counter area in my kitchen today, I could totally feel the difference every time I walked in. I felt lighter.

I can already feel that I'm on a roll. It's going to be such a huge blessing to myself and my family to get this stuff out!

I hope we all come out of this 28 Day Declutter Challenge feeling more peaceful. And if the decluttering bug bites you during the challenge, just pick up your next decluttering chart, set your goal, and keep right on going.

Let’s declutter together with the Decluttering Pack!

Amazing way to start a new year in a new way

I started off with checkbook registers as a child. I had microsoft money when I went to "grow up" with my first computer in the past before they discontinued it. It makes me sad as I did like that despite never using it for any budgeting purposes persay but having all my bills in it for a 12 month view made it pretty easy to "visually budget". I've tried quicken for pc and for mac and it's okay until they force me to upgrade to the next year version. I've tried simple excel worksheets and complex ones. NOTHING seems to keep me motivated now that I'm getting serious about getting out of debt. I started this at the beginning of 2021. I downloaded several of Ms. Nash's bundles and separate sheets and what I've found that works for me is a mixture of them all (despite some being pretty much the same thing but slightly different). Going back to what first worked... I incorporated all her forms with a simple checkbook register (but printed on computer paper instead of the tiny book) and it's all in a binder. I went fancy with the heavy duty "better" binder from staples and pre-printed monthly dividers. I've colored in nearly all the monthly quotes which definitely make me think and make things more fun. I bought colorful erasable pens and what I've found by pulling out this book which is mostly Ms. Nash's charts, I'm actually looking forward to having some "color time" while updating bills/income/etc and I spend more time paying attention to the numbers than I ever had before. I second guess purchases to make myself not have to "write" as much down AND.... I'VE GOT MY HUSBAND ON BOARD!!! By putting it on paper with all my "silly colorful charts", my husband is looking at them and pulling the book out on his own to look at how things are going. In our 8 years of marriage and 10 years of being together, honestly, I've always handled the money stuff and he just expected things to work out. When stress of "how is this going to end up" when I started my Dave Ramsey journey a few years ago, it definitely doesn't work well when only one is on board. Finally, this method has brought us together. Granted, he DOESNT write anything at all down, but he's very interested in seeing how we made the goals and what we're looking like through the month. We are dreaming of the future for the first time! SO EXCITED!

I love the Debt Free Chart

Amazing Tool...Easy to use, keeps you accountable, you see the results and you want to keep going. I do recommend using this chart.

Exactly what I needed - 30 day challenge

Sometimes you need a short time based goal to kick you into gear and get you to focus on a 30 day challenge, 1 day at a time. This pack is exactly what you need. And I needed. Sometimes it’s just easier to focus on a 30 day goal to keep you going into long term changes. This pack is perfect, love it.

Create a habit!

I love these charts! They say it takes 30 days to create a habit, well this chart will keep me on track for that! So excited.
