30 day declutter challenge

Is the clutter getting out of control in your house? Because it certainly is in ours. It is quite literally taking over! I spotted a post by fellow blogger All Round Creative Junkie who is taking part in the #40bagsin40days challenge and giving up clutter for lent. This has inspired me to give my own house a proper spring clean in March and declutter one area every day (with one day off as the 30 day challenge sounds better than the 31 day challenge).

30 day declutter challenge

So the idea is - little and often. The thought of taking on one of the kids' bedrooms in one day brings me out in a cold sweat so I've broken down the main areas we need to be decluttered into smaller areas and spread them out throughout March. I'm going to share the jobs with Steve so the burden won't all be on just me and we can complete them in any order. I'm actually really excited to get started! I'll share my challenge and how we're getting on over on my Instagram Stories every day in March so if you're interested in how we're getting on, give me a follow here. I'll hopefully write a follow up post when we're all done too. Who fancies joining me??

30 day declutter challenge


  1. Ooooh good luck! I'm trying to declutter my wardrobe at the moment and am just doing tiny bits as and when I get time! We could also really do with a bathroom cabinet declutter which we're always putting off!

  2. Yes! I’m in!!! I definitely need some serious decluttering! Or else move!!!

  3. I'm in a 365 challenge at the moment, giving myself a year to get my hotel standard house back!

  4. Ahh! Good luck!
    We changed the living and dining room around yesterday and decluttered! We filled about 4 bags for the charity shop and about 4 rubbish. lol We probably should have did it over a few days but it's all done now. lol
