Decluttering in February

I think the universe is sending me a message: three of my favourite sites are focussing on Decluttering this month.  And I’ll keep telling myself that I’m not behind – I’ll just jump in where I am!


The FlyLady‘s monthly habit is decluttering for 15 minutes a day.  She has some good instructions on how to declutter and some different fun ways to get motivated.

You can click on the play button here and listen to Flylady talking about decluttering in February.

I’m feeling a bit guilty now because she keeps talking about how you should put boxes of decluttered stuff in the car straight away, and I’ve had boxes sitting on my bedroom floor for a couple of weeks.

Must deliver those and stop thinking that the op-shop lady is going to be all judgmental.

(Flylady is watching me procrastinate)

Life With Flylady

Life with FlyLady ButtonMaaike from Life With FlyLady is running a decluttering challenge with some great instructions and week-by-week steps.  She also links to some excellent decluttering advice from Leo Babauta at ZenHabits, one of my favourite inspirations for a simpler life.

You can follow along with Maaike on her Life With Flylady page on Facebook too.

The Organised Housewife

The Organised Housewife

Katrina from The Organised Housewife is running a February year-long, weekly decluttering challenge. She calls it “52 things in 52 weeks” but those Things are big things.  Not, like, one Happy Meal toy per week – this week, she is focusing on clearing out your closet.

I’m going to unload some birthday supplies from the car now so I can fit those op-shop boxes in there and get going. How about you?
