Declutter One Small Area A Week: Summer Start

Declutter One Small Area a Week: Summer Start, Rid you home of clutter once & for all with a simple one step a week plan.

You Can Always Start Again

I have to be honest.  I have not been able to declutter one area a week as I started out in January.  But I am not upset about this.  Why, because we have made so much progress from January to now the start of summer.  With a mindset of decluttering one small area a week I started a project, I would never have before. 

Jim and I started to clean up one small area of the basement and three hours later we had a huge section we could not use up and useful.  A shelf and a lot of our pantry basics stored away.  The next day we were so inspired we tackled two workbenches that again were so cluttered they could not be used. Now they are trash free and open for projects.

We have has a lot of activity this spring and start of summer all fun and full of family & friends but I have slipped from my one small area a week.  I have given myself a break as some of our clean up was big enough to cover more than one week. But new is the time to get back in the mindset.

I love succulents as they have clean lines and look so pretty.  I decided to create a new printable for the new summer start to get back in the mindset.  We have a garage that is a disaster and if I think of it as a whole it will never change.  So I am going to brainstorm the garage in sections and start this week.
