Aug. 27: Daily Challenge To Keep Your Home Organized & Clean!

Come on!!! This will be well worth it! Post and let us know when you have completed the challenge! Please click the "Thanks" tab at the bottom of this post if you are participating in today's task! I am watching to see how big the interest is for this kind of thread.

Good Monday to you all! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend!

Today, we are in the Living Room. I want you to go into your living rooms and stand there. While you are standing there, I want you to look around and look at the flat surfaces (end tables, coffee tables, tops of tv's/entertainment centers, bookcases, mantles, etc.).

What do have on these surfaces? Are they the same decorative things that you have always had? Do you really love them? Are they cluttered up with too many things? Too many ducks, bunnies, candles, cows, Precious Moments, etc.? I am not condemning those things but asking you if they still bring you joy and do you still love seeing them in your living room, or are you just used to them?

What about the piles of magazines and papers? Do you NEED those? You would be amazed at how much neater your living room will appear by just removing a few things.

How much easier would it be to dust these areas without all that stuff?

Your mission is to get rid of the things that are cluttering up your living room. Take 15 minutes to let go of some things. I am willing to bet that more of you will find you do want to get rid of some things because they do not bring you joy and you are just used to them being there.


Set your timer for 15 minutes, and Go, go, go!!!

Newbies: Jump right in and join us! You are not behind!

*These daily challenges are taken from FlyLady.net. Just 15 minutes a day helps to keep the clutter away!

Where is everyone today?! It sure is quiet around here. Did my challenges scare you off?

I finished my living room, and it is looking pretty good now! I dislike dusting, so I keep my knick-knacks to a minimum. I took out a couple of candles that were given to me as a gift about five years ago, and I don't love them or even really like them anymore! So, they are in my yard sale bag now. Maybe someone else will to dust them! I also cleaned out my magazine basket and purged a few toys from the kid's toybox in there too. It made a difference and looks company ready! (The living room.... not the whole house!) Hee-hee!!

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I think I get lost on here sometimes. I find threads I like and then can't find my way back. I'll join in. Thanks again.

I've got zilch out as far as knick knacks and very few decorative items at the moment.

I'm guessing that with a lot if kids going back to school this week people are getting used to their adjusted schedules and routines.

I'm game! I decluttered my kitchen last week (went through the 'desk' section which is a huge clutterbomb ) and the family room could definitely use some attention.

I am purging magazines and newspapers (will take a load to recycling tomorrow on the way to an appt). I don't display much in the way of knick knacks, but after the kids are in bed I will work through their toy bins and purge old happy meal toys and other toys that are past their prime/missing parts, etc. I might also set aside some toys that they don't play with anymore to see if they are willing to part with them in next month's consignment sale (usually if I give them a portion of my sales this gets them interested ).

Looking forward to more daily challenges--we downsized 18 months ago and although initially I purged a lot of stuff so we could more comfortably 'fit' here, the stuff has been creeping back in ever since!!

Cleaned off the mantle and dusted all the little knick knacks. Got rid of a few things and reorganized the picture frames. Two frames have been empty for years and I think I should force myself to fill them this week. It's looking better already.

Sorry I didn't give you a task on the other thread today but she normally has one here in addition to mine and we try to keep them different.

I will look around...my 'decorations' are usually not intended ones so might remove some things that don't belong.

I'm now subscribed to both. The funny thing is, I had planned on looking for the set of keys I misplaced but forgot til I read your post.
