June was the month to declutter my mind as part of the Declutter Cleanse Challenge 2017. When my mind is overflowing with tasks, appointments, and “should” or “you need to” thoughts, I become overwhelmed and go into stationary mode. This can also be a trigger to overeat because I can treat food as a distraction.
Honestly, this was the most difficult challenge for me! I have an obsession with books. At this time, I own 82 books (this does not include eBooks). I cannot believe this count isn’t higher?!
As part of the Declutter Cleanse 2017, I chose April to sort through and organize all of the toys my kids own. My hope was that if I found a way to organize and clear out the toys, my boys would play with them more and I would spend less time, picking up random toys and nagging the boys to do the same.
In March I started cleaning out my closet and going through all the clothes that accumulated in the basement. I was really excited about the idea of a capsule wardrobe and decided this would be the goal for my closet. The less clothes to choose from, the easier it would be to get ready for the day.
As part of the Declutter Cleanse 2017, February was the month I chose to declutter the basement. I didn’t accomplish this enormous task in February.
Back in January of 2017, I created a Declutter Cleanse in an effort to simplify my life. I had completed the Whole 30 way of eating back in October, and I couldn’t believe how much easier this made my life.
