Clutter Free in 30 Days

March is typically Spring Cleaning month. The air is warming up outside and people are starting to venture out of their winter caves. As part of our New Years resolutions this year, Adam and I decided that we wanted to be more organized and tame the clutter. 

Neither of us are neat freaks, but we do both want a tidy house. We honestly did really good keeping our house tame of clutter until we had kids. They come with so much stuff (and some of it you only use for a few months, then it is no longer needed).

I was honest about my clutter in my Honest Pictures post.

When we moved, we were able to get rid of several things that we were no longer using. We’ve realized that after being in the same house for 1.5 years that there is even more that we don’t need.

Since then, we have moved two more times! It is crazy how much you discover you don’t really need when you go through the moving process. But you don’t have to move to go through your belongings to decide if you should keep them or not.

Since Adam and I are planners, we sat down and developed a plan that would work to be Clutter Free in 30 Days.

3 Steps to be Clutter Free

We decided that we would use this 3 step plan to sort and organize everything in our house to reduce the clutter. This is what it looked like:

First, we decided to go room by room and sort the clutter into 3 bins




We started in the kitchen, then the game room, then moved up stairs to the bedrooms.

Every item was evaluated on this criteria:

Do I love it? Do I use it? Do I need it? 

If it didn’t fit into one of those categories, then it went in the give or toss bin.

It is amazing how many things we have that we don’t even like.

5 Tips to Tackle the Clutter

Set Clear Goals and Priorities:

Before diving into the decluttering process, it’s essential to set clear goals and priorities. Determine which areas of your home need the most attention and establish realistic expectations for each day. By breaking down the decluttering process into manageable tasks, you can stay focused and motivated throughout the 30-day plan.

Create a Schedule:

As a busy mom, time is precious. Create a decluttering schedule that fits into your daily routine. Dedicate specific time slots each day for decluttering, whether it’s early mornings, nap times, or evenings. Consistency is key, so stick to your schedule as much as possible.

Start Small and Tackle One Area at a Time:

To avoid feeling overwhelmed, start small and focus on one area at a time. Begin with a small space, such as a drawer or a closet, and gradually work your way through each room. Breaking down the decluttering process into smaller tasks will make it more manageable and less time-consuming.

Sort and Declutter:

When decluttering, sort items into three categories: keep, donate/sell, and discard. Be ruthless in your decision-making process and let go of items that no longer serve a purpose or bring you joy. Consider the 80/20 rule, where you aim to keep only the items you use or love and let go of the rest.

Implement Effective Storage Solutions:

To maintain a clutter-free home, it’s crucial to have effective storage solutions in place. Invest in storage bins, baskets, and organizers to keep items neatly organized. Utilize vertical space, such as wall-mounted shelves or hanging organizers, to maximize storage capacity.

Where do you take the things that you want to give away?

As you are going through all your clutter, you are going to find things that you can’t really sell but still have value. This is where you can donate and give things away. A few ways we have done this is just posted on Facebook. There are groups were you can post items for free and usually someone will come by and pick it up.

You can also donate to charity organizations. We have a few local organizations in our town that we like to donate our kids clothes that are out-grown and toys that are no longer played with.

Keeping your Home Clean with Non-Toxic Products

One added bonus to going through all the hassle of becoming a clutter free home is that it is actually easier to keep your home clean! When all the clutter is gone, it is easier to keep your house clean. 

I like using non-toxic cleaning solutions for keeping our house clean and safe for the kids. Here are more ideas of how to reduce toxins in your home.

It also doesn’t seem as overwhelming when there are just a few things that need to put back into place, so the whole family can help keep the house picked up and clutter free!

    • I have WAY more clutter /stuff than I could get to in 30 minutes a day for a year! I’m not saying your method is not effective. But wouldn’t it be better to work in one room until it was done than to have every room turned upside down at once?
