How about a 31-day decluttering challenge to start 2022 with less clutter taking up valuable space in your home – and your life? A clutter detox for the new year sounds good to me, are you in?
Below is a list of 31 suggestions for each day of December. On the designated day take 10 minutes to toss, recycle, or place the listed item in a bag/box for donation or sale. If you’re feeling energetic, go ahead and complete a few decluttering tasks all at once.
I guarantee you won’t miss anything on this list in 2022.
