Did you know that Decluttering Season starts NOW!??
Back in 2003, I started selling things on eBay. I had a sudden urge to GET RID of stuff that had been sitting around unused since my wedding in 1999. The urge hit immediately after Christmas. I thought it was just me.
But now, since I’m officially a Cleaning/Organizing Blogger (through a VERY strange turn of events), and I’ve written an e-book full of reality-based decluttering strategies that work, I know the truth.
The world begins to go Decluttering Crazy as soon as the sun comes up on December 26th.
I believe it’s a combination of new stuff coming into the house in the form of Christmas gifts and the fact that life slows down a little in that week between Christmas and New Year’s Day.
Oh. And then there’s the whole be-more-organized-is-at-the-top-of-every-resolution-list thing.
capitalize on the frenzy be here to support you, I’m doing some fun things during this crazy season.
First, I have updated my Decluttering page! It has links to posts about the strategies I have developed through my own decluttering efforts. There are also links to lots of my decluttering projects that include before and after photos. Go here to read that page, and/or pin it here to save for later.
Second, I’m putting my e-books on sale. Through January 2nd, individual e-books will each be $3, or you can get the 2 e-book set (28 Days to Hope for Your Home and Drowning in Clutter?) for only $5. Use the code: 2014
NOTE: The sale is over and the e-books are now retired. For detailed guides, check out my books: How to Manage Your Home Without Losing Your Mind and Decluttering at the Speed of Life.
Third, each day this week I will be putting up a new “How to Declutter _________” post with specific strategies for specific areas of your home. I’ll also include links to past decluttering projects of my own for those areas.
Areas will include:
- Child’s Room
- Living Areas
In the comments of each post, you can share what you’re doing this week!
Then, as we head into 2014, I’ll host a weekly Decluttering Party each Friday in January here at A Slob Comes Clean. You can share your own projects in the comments, or if you have a blog, you can link to a post on your blog.
I will also host Google + Hangouts each Thursday in January, starting on January 9th. I’ll talk about decluttering strategies and you can ask questions or share your own progress live. (Or you can just watch!)
