Clutter Free Challenge Day 1
Well, friends, it is day 1 of the 31 Days to a Clutter Free Life Challenge and I have to say that I am doing awesome thus far...
I have signed the Challenge Ground Rules document and have committed to the process. It is official now! There's no turning back.
The Ground Rules are: everything must have a home, everything must have a purpose, everything must be in good working order, everything must have a label, and if it needs to go - get it out FAST!
I think the rule that will challenge me the most is everything must have a purpose. I have become better over the years about letting go of things I don't need. However, I still feel guilty every time I give away something that was a gift. I have to continually remind myself that someone else will appreciate and love it more if I don't keep it.
I want my home to be a place of peace where, by William Morris' rule, I have nothing in my home that I "don't know to be useful or believe to be beautiful." I am both excited and slightly terrified of what this 31 day challenge will bring, but I am ready for change!
Which of the Ground Rules do you think will challenge you most?
