Focus: 30 Days of No Spending
In order to properly declutter, we have to stop bringing items in our home during this phase. If we continue to bring items in while we are actively decluttering, we end up spinning our tires and not getting anywhere. That leads to overwhelm and frustration, the two killers of

Today we are going to tackle cleaning supplies.
I’ll do a live video later this evening so we can chat about this.
• Bring all of your cleaning supplies to one clear surface (I like the kitchen table) to work on.
• Put the same ones together. Bleach with bleach, vinegar with vinegar, all purpose cleaner with all purpose cleaner etc.
• Mix your multiples into one container. Do not mix different cleaners with different cleaners, some chemical reactions can be dangerous.
• Do you have cleaners that you haven’t used in years? Time to get rid of those.
• Figure out the best locations for your cleaning supplies. Let’s brainstorm tonight.
• I have a bathroom cleaning bin in my main floor bathroom. It keeps all of my bathroom cleaning supplies all together and it’s easier to keep inventory when I don’t have multiple and random cleaning supplies around.
Do you have questions? Ask them here and I’ll cover them in the video chat tonight ❤️
Day 4 of 30 Days of Minimizing
Today let’s tackle the junk drawer. If you don’t have a junk drawer, tackle a basket or bin you’ve been putting off for a while.
Junk drawers happen because we have little items that have no “home” and the drawer is given the purpose of a junk drawer.
I used to have a junk drawer in my kitchen beside my stove and underneath my desk counter.
I cleared them out and noticed that they kept filling up after time.
When I finally gave my junk drawer a job (or purpose) that was when everything changed.
The one by my stove became the drawer for clothes, oven mitts, and battery storage.
The one in my desk space became my office drawer. It houses my paper cutter, note pads, sticky note and thank you cards.
Nothing else makes its way in there because I know what the purpose of the drawer is.
What purpose could you create for your junk drawer? And what will it be called?
