2018: The Year of the Declutter

Decluttering has been on my mind for years. I have been slowly chiseling away at my mountain of stuff since I first heard and read about The Konmari Method. I did a 1 month declutter challenge (made it over half way through but got stuck somewhere and never finished). I started doing a capsule wardrobe (I LOVE IT) and have kept at it for 6 months now and am fully committed to seeing this through. My secret…I have kept half of my clothes in our spare closet as a “just in case” because I didn’t think I could do it. Turns out I can! So I will be going through all of my stuff and really being ruthless about what clothes I am keeping. I periodically will declutter a cupboard or drawer in my kitchen but I really need to rehaul the whole space. And don’t even get me started on the kid’s toys and clothes. That one scares me the most honestly.

BUT. 2018 is going to be the year I do it. Or try to ha ha. I’ve done enough reading about it and thinking about it. Every time I do a little bit, it feels amazing. So I know if I can just finish my whole house I am going to be so much happier! For the most part, I think i’m going to follow Konmari’s method and use this cheatsheet to keep me on track. I am going to deviate in the beginning by doing something she suggests not to do and that is to not declutter by room. Our office/guest room has become sort of a dumping ground of sorts. I just want to clear out the whole room and use that as my base for the rest of the decluttering. I feel like there’s so much I can get rid of in that room and that it will help motivate me to finish the rest!

Anyways, I know I haven’t blogged in awhile but I suddenly felt inspired and sometimes writing it here for all of the world (well the 2 or 3 people that still read this blog LOL) can help me feel more accountable. Also, if anyone else needs the nudge to declutter their own home let me know so we can cheer each other on! :)

Good luck! This has also been my goal for a while but I never seem to do it and I feel like such a failure! lol. I recently finished reading “goodbye, things” so I’d like to think motivation is renewed. But time will tell lol.
