Here’s how Spring into Simple works:

Spring into Simple is a free 14-day decluttering challenge, where we’ll focus on decluttering one specific area of our homes every day, for 14 days. And we start on April 1st, 2019! The goal will be to spend 15 – 30 minutes a day decluttering one specific area.

During the challenge, I’ll email you each morning during the challenge with your decluttering plan for the day. Along with some decluttering tips to get you started and plenty of motivation to keep you going!

If you join late, don’t worry – just jump in whenever you join and go from there.

Let’s do this together!

A challenge like this is always more fun when you’re not doing it alone. Join the Simple Lionheart Life FaceBook group to connect with me and other challenge participants, receive a daily reminder of the area we’re decluttering and get some extra motivation from the group!

And if you’re on Instagram, be sure to use the hashtag #springintosimple and tag me @simplelionheartlife so I can celebrate your decluttering success with you and cheer you on! I’ll be featuring and sharing challenge participants throughout the challenge so we can encourage and motivate each other!

Here’s what we’ll cover in Spring into Simple

During Spring into Simple, we’ll focus on decluttering several key areas of your home. I’ve picked areas to declutter during the challenge that will give you a big bang for your buck. Focusing on clearing the clutter from these key areas will have a huge impact on your home and your life. Giving you more time, space and freedom to enjoy a life with less stuff and more living!

Before beginning the challenge, we’ll get you set up for decluttering success. Then we’ll start with my favourite quick and easy decluttering projects to give you some immediate “decluttering wins”. Seeing results right away will give you motivation and confidence to keep going through the rest of the challenge.

Then, during the rest of Spring into Simple, we’ll tackle the bathroom, linen closet, kitchen and clothes.

Progress, not perfection

The Spring into Simple Decluttering Challenge is designed to be simple, easy to keep up with and realistic. Our goal isn’t to completely declutter your entire home – that’s what my course, Simply Uncluttered, is for.

Instead, the goal is to dive in and kick-start your decluttering progress. It’s about taking action without feeling overwhelmed and building up your decluttering muscles! And trust me, committing to declutter for 15 – 30 minutes a day for 14 days will go a long way towards simplifying your home. By the end of this challenge, you’ll see big results!

While you’re decluttering, work quickly and try to get as much done as you can during your 15 – 30 minutes. And remember, your results will add up over time, even if it doesn’t feel like it while you’re decluttering.

It’s about consistency, not intensity – you’ll be building a decluttering habit and building your decluttering muscles. Decluttering is just like anything else – the more you do it, the better you get at it. By the end of the Spring into Simple Decluttering Challenge, you’ll have built some serious decluttering muscles!

Focus on progress, not perfection. Even if you can’t declutter your entire kitchen, for example, during the challenge, you’ll make huge strides towards simplifying it. And that’s what matters!

The best way to make decluttering progress is to start!

Sometimes when we’re facing a big project like decluttering our entire home, it can feel overwhelming. But I have found the best thing to do when tackling a big project is to take the first step and actually get started. Usually, once you get past the mental hurdle of getting started, it’s easier to keep going.

The Spring into Simple Decluttering Challenge will help you do just that. I’ll give you a simple decluttering roadmap to follow and guide you through the entire 14 days. Not only will get started and achieve big decluttering results by the end of the 14 days, but you’ll also be in a good decluttering rhythm to continue decluttering!

And if you get to the end of the challenge and feel like you need more guidance and encouragement, my decluttering course, Simply Uncluttered, can give you that! It’s thorough and detailed and will guide you through the process of decluttering every single space in your home.

But for now, let’s just focus on getting started. On taking that first step, building a decluttering habit and making huge strides towards simplifying your home and your life. By committing to spending 15 – 30 minutes a day clearing the clutter from your home, you’ll create a home you with more time, space and freedom. Create a home where you can enjoy your days, instead of just cleaning up after them!

    1. Thanks, Rebecca! You’re absolutely right, accountability and reminders can really make it easier to get started decluttering AND keep going! Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the challenge!

  1. Yes! I agree that we just have to start! But taking the first step is the hardest… I’m overdue for another declutter myself, thanks for the reminder to take small steps and not expect perfection!

    1. The first step really can be the hardest! Sometimes the more we procrastinate a big project like decluttering, the more daunting it becomes in our minds. Diving in and getting started is so important. Progress, not perfection! Thanks for reading and happy decluttering 🙂

  2. Most minimalists advocate decluttering, but it always seems to be that it’s described with a finite timeline. I think we can all agree that you need to change the habits around acquiring things. However, I’m curious as to your thoughts on timelines. I could see where it’d make more sense to use up what you already have (i.e. bottles of shampoo, socks, spices in the cupboard, etc) rather than trash it just because it’s not used often or taking up space.

    1. Yes, I definitely agree with you. When you’re embracing minimalism, the first stage is removing the clutter and the things you don’t use or love from your home. But once you have done that, the next phase is establishing routines and habits and shifting your mindset to prevent the amount of stuff from accumulating again. Things like changing your shopping behaviour, becoming a gatekeeper for what you allow into your home to begin with, etc. In addition, regular maintenance decluttering sessions are important as well. Not only do our needs and the season of life we’re in change over time, but I also find the more we embrace minimalism, the more we are willing and able to let go of. Or even challenge our ideas of what is enough for us and experiment with minimalism in different areas of our lives.

      I do agree with you about using up what you have. As long as you are only keeping the things you will eventually use up (as opposed to keeping all kinds of things you might maybe use one day) I think it makes more sense and is less wasteful to use what you have. But then only replace what you will actually need and use going forward. I think it’s about finding the balance that works for you and being really honest with yourself if you will actually use something in the future. Thanks for reading, I hope this answers your question!

  3. Great post. It reminds me of the importance of decluttering but I don’t know why I never seem to find the time to do it. This is a good place to start 🙂

    1. Thank you, Daiana! I’m glad you enjoyed this post and found it helpful! Sometimes getting started is the hardest part when it comes to decluttering. A challenge like this often gives us the motivation and push we need to get started and keep going! I hope you enjoy the challenge. Thanks for reading 🙂
