Week 1 - Introduction and Holiday/Kids' Items {Net Zero Clutter Challenge 2017}




December can feel so overwhelming... there are so many extra tasks to do, places to go, and people to see.  But more than demands on our time, are the demands on our space. If we're entertaining during the holidays, we suddenly become much more aware of the clutter in our homes. And just the thought of how many new items will be entering our homes this month is overwhelming! All of these factors make it hard to enjoy this otherwise wonderful time of year.

There are lots of tips out there for managing your time better during the holidays, but I've found that the single most important thing I can do to help me feel less overwhelmed in December is to declutter throughout the month.  And reducing that overwhelm means I can enjoy Christmas much more.

For the last two years, I've hosted the #NetZeroClutter challenge and many of you joined in and decluttered in December. Will you join the Net Zero Decluttering Challenge this year?

Day 31: 31 Day Photo Decluttering Challenge




Got a lot of photos? Do you want to be able to enjoy your pictures instead of having to search and search to find your favourites? Does the thought of tackling your photo collection seem so overwhelming that you keep putting it off? Me too!

That's why this month I'm hosting the 31 Day Photo Decluttering Challenge! Each day I've been sharing tips to help you declutter your photo collection so you can really treasure and enjoy all the best ones. And I've shared my progress as I decluttered my photos along with you :)

It's the last day of the challenge! Can you believe it? It seemed like so long at the beginning of the month, but the time has really flown. Today I'm sharing some successes and challenges encountered by people who participated in the challenge this month, along with tips and ideas they shared. And of course I'm going to give a final update on my photo decluttering this month :)
