Here it comes! It’s the great big Creating Order 2009 Declutter Challenge! And I want you to be a part of it.
Back on December 8th I had a crazy idea. I was wondering how I could inspire my readers to declutter in 2009 when it came to me. 2009’s a pretty big number. What if I lead the way by decluttering 2009 items from my home/life in 2009? Great idea, huh?
And then the doubt crept in. I’m already pretty organised, will I find that many items to declutter? The math works out to over 38 items per week, over 5 items per day.
Well, I love a challenge. If I succeed it will be well worth it. If I fail it will be spectacular and I’m willing to risk it. How about you? Will you be in it with me?
How will it work? Each week I’ll let you know what I’ve decluttered, why and how. I’ll keep a tally and it’ll be fun to watch it grow. All items count. 3 magazines and 4 books counts as 7 items, not 2. (Or I’ll never get there!)
How can you participate? Declutter with me. Tell me about it. Leave a comment or send an email. I’ll post your decluttering successes too. Go on, what have you got to lose, except clutter? As a further incentive, there will be spot prizes along the way.
Predict the date I’ll reach the magic number of 2009 items decluttered (entries due via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 31st 2009) to win the bonus prize of a signed copy of Wendy Davie’s The Accidental Organiser.
Officially we start tomorrow, but if you’re as excited as I am, go ahead and start decluttering right now.
