I’ve spoken before about the Power of 10 Minutes – taking on one small focussed challenge a day instead of bigger projects that make you feel overwhelmed before you’ve even begun. Well, now it’s time to kick it up a gear with A Simpler 30-Day Challenge!
Taking part is easy – visit my Facebook page, Instagram or website once a day for that day’s task, then set aside just 10 minutes to get it done. It could be while waiting for dinner to cook, when the children are in the bath, while your own bath is running, or even when chatting to a friend on the phone – all of us can commit to 10 minutes a day for a whole month. And before you know it, you will have a massive THIRTY areas of your home organised before the end of June. Crazy, right?
What you need to do to prepare for the challenge:
There’s just ONE thing you need to do, and that is have a couple of cardboard boxes, empty laundry baskets or black plastic bags ready to fill. As we go through each of the tasks, you’ll find items that you want to donate – so it makes sense to have something at the ready in which to place these items. Don’t stress about the process of actually donating them – I have a few charities that will happily collect all donations at the end of the month. For now, just think about where to put them!
What areas will we be covering:
Quite a few actually – we’ll tackle your fridge, freezer, various kitchen cabinets, linen cupboard, jewellery, makeup, book shelves, clothing cupboard and more. But remember, it’s just ten minutes a day in which you SUBTRACT as much as possible. Once that’s been done, organising those areas at a later stage will be a breeze. Some days you might be able to subtract and organise at the same time; others are bigger tasks and we’ll just focus on removing items that can be donated or thrown away. You won’t believe the difference it will make to your home and headspace!
What if I’ve missed the challenge but want to do it anyway?
