I have been reading alot on simplifying and organizing lately. I actually am a pretty organized person, but there are areas that I feel I could do better or would like to take a different approach. So each month I am going to have a different "challenge" and I will send a prize to the winner at the end of every month.
So for February I am going to steal a challenge that a friend has done in our playgroup. I just did this before we moved and it was amazing what a difference it made.
Clean out those closets, drawers and unwanted clutter. Donate what you can to a local charity (don't forget to ask for a receipt) or someone you know could use it and simply throw out the rest. So get rid of it, clear it out and purge. (Mom this would be a GREAT challenge for you, and maybe in the process find those books I was wanting)
You can take pictures of the stuff you are purging or simply post me a list. Be creative. I will post reminders throughout the month and will reward a prize to the person who declutters the most.
So ready? Set? Declutter!!
