April is upon us, and the spring cleaning challenge is here! This week we challenge you to discard 1 bag (of any size...or box!) of clothes! You can do this!
As you declutter, take it slow. Really consider only one item of clothing at a time. Give it your full decision making attention. Remember that taking breaks is okay. Remember that you have lots of clothes and you will not run out. And keep your personal reason for doing this tidy in focus! Do you want to do less laundry? Do you want to free up more storage space in your drawers? Do you want to make room for new items you plan to acquire? Are you unable to actually see what you do have? Do you want to only have items that make you feel great? Do you just want your closet to look prettier? WHATEVER IT IS, let that personal reason motivate you as you begin this decluttering journey.
The thing you are hunting for in your closet this week is joy. Use your clothes to hone your sense of what you really love. Find that one item of clothing that you just KNOW you're going to keep because you LOVE it. Take it out, touch it, admire it. THAT is the feeling we want you to feel about all of the things that you have.
Don't worry about organization until you have fully decluttered all of your clothes. THEN take stock of your space, and put your beloved items on display!
Alright, let's do this, friends!! PLEASE share your progress with us on social media! Post pictures to our Facebook page, and on Instagram use the hashtags #6in6 and #WHATSINTHEBAG to show off your progress! I'd also super love to see that one favorite piece that you own; the one that showed you joy!
In solidarity, I also did a closet tidy. Here's the (dodgy...I swear I'm learning) video proof. Don't forget to snag the free printable Week One checklist at the bottom of the page! Enjoy!
