MORE vs less: 31 Days of Decluttering – Introduction

. at . 3 comments

#Write31Days starts today, October 1st.  100’s of bloggers will write every day on a single topic.

  • Some bloggers will complete projects and write about their experience.
  • Some bloggers will write on a pre-assigned topic.


  • Family Life
  • Fashion & Beauty
  • Food, Health & Wellness
  • House & Home
  • Hobbies & Goals
  • Inspiration & Faith
  • Instagram Series (for micro-bloggers)
  • Simplicity & Organizing
  • Too Awesome to Categorize
  • Writing, Blogging & Tech Stuff

My category is Simplicity & Organizing. And the project that I will write about is 31 days of decluttering.

  • Every day I will declutter for 31 minutes.
  • And every day I will write about this topic.
  • Sometimes I will write about the specifics of my decluttering.
  • Sometimes I will share resources.
  • Sometimes I will share tips.
  • At the end I will see whether my home/life/calendar is different.

WHY am I doing this?

I need it. Despite the fact that I’ve participated in other decluttering challenges, I still have too much stuff. Will this be different? I don’t know. But this time I have identified my “why” my goals for why I want less and not MORE in my home.

I have two goals.

  1. I want to live in a smaller place like a Hobbit Home or a Tiny House. Either one requires that I own less stuff.
  2. I want to be able to leave home more often and more easily. I’d like to visit the grand kiddos, go on extended mission trips and visit more places around the world. Having less stuff to keep track of makes those things easier to accomplish.

Join me in this experiment of MORE vs less.

Day 1 –  31 Minutes of Decluttering = The bookcase by the front door. It was CROWDED and messy. I set the timer for 31 minutes and actually kept at it until the project was done. There is even an empty space on the bottom for library books and videos. Tomorrow I will return borrowed books, go to the Good Will and take out the trash. This bookcase is decluttered!
