Decluttering is something that has really helped make our house less stressful. Having fewer things in our home means we don’t spend hours cleaning, tidying, and straightening.

You might plan to tackle a room but inevitably a kiddo will make a mess or need your help and before you know it the process of decluttering is more stress than it is worth.
To accommodate the busy life of a mom, I created a new type of decluttering plan. This plan focuses on the whole home and requires only a few minutes each day.
The plan is set to happen over 31 days. The idea is to remove the same number of items as the day of the month. For example, on the 14th, I would find 14 items to declutter from our home.
This made the process a game of sorts. Each day I looked hard at the things in our home and removed things we weren’t using.
It has been easier to declutter when I look at items rather than rooms.
The items didn’t have to be from a specific room or even the same room.
Instead, these items are simply things I notice throughout the day that we are no longer using, that are broken, or that have simply been outgrown.
