It’s easy to just jump into decluttering but it can get overwhelming.
I’ve created this printable to help you plan, keep track of your progress, and stay motivated. It is designed so that you have one day off per week, most people take Sundays off but you can pick the day.
I highly recommend printing out two copies: one for planning (rooms, spots in your home, where you want to work on) and one for your actual progress. Click here to get the 2015 40 BAGS IN 40 DAYS printable:
To use the printable:
- Print two copies. (This is important!)
- Use a pencil so you can erase. (This is important too!!)
- On the first copy, write down 40 different rooms or spots you would like to work on. Here is a list of suggested areas/rooms and another list of non-visible clutter. Be realistic, stretch larger spaces over a few days or a week (basement, attic, closets, etc).
- On the second copy, fill in your actual progress. What area you tackled, how many bags you got, where they will go (thrift store, garbage, family member, garage sale). Day 1 will be the day you start, don’t forget to give yourself Sundays (or at least one day a week) off when filling it out.
If you don’t plan on starting on Wednesday, February 18th, click here to get the 40 BAGS IN 40 DAYS printable without dates.
