There is an online decluttering workshop hosted by Happy Organized Life going on, which was just started on 1 September. I decided to join the decluttering bandwagon as I have always wanted to work on this area – decluttering & organizing.
We are asked to pick a space or room to focus on decluttering and organizing for the week. I always choose the living room to be the first space to clean and declutter, as this is the where our family, especially the kids spend the most time in a day. It’s where we are having our meals and homeschooling lessons. It’s the biggest area in our home, and I guess that’s why my kids like to have most of their activities here too, including toys playing, reading, drawing, etc. Of course, it would also be nice if someone visits us, and they at least get a clean and neat space to sit and chat with us.
I have divided several sections of the living room, and I am going to work on each of them everyday. We will start the decluttering process at 4pm everyday, that’s our usual clean up time but I make it half an hour earlier.
I am going to share this plan with my kids, so we can work this out together.

Where in your house do you spend the most time in the day?
Do you agree with “less is more”?
I should clean my bed room this week.
Good! Hope you’ll get it done soon. I am still working hard on it. 😀
Just done last night. Thanks God.
That’s good! Now you can move on to the next area or take a rest as it’s Sunday!
The poll bug has been passed to you. What are the answers to the first question?
Sorry, I think I added the answers but they weren’t saved properly. 😛
I try to keep all my spaces open and uncluttered
That’s good! I am learning and trying to make that. 🙂
you will see huge benefits from it
I can already imagine that, that’s why I am working hard on decluttering now. I want to spend more time with my kids instead of clearing the clutter. 😀
get your kids to help, it would be win/win
I have two places that require decluttering often one is our dining table which is where I also work and my cupboards (lol)
I used to think once we have decluttered, then it’ll be cleared and we won’t need to spend time decluttering anymore. Decluttering is actually a continuous process that we need to do consistently (unless our home is empty). 😀
Decluttering is an unknown word here – most of our rooms are cluttered.
Same as my house. That’s why we need to declutter. 😀
I am always filling a box for donating any extra.
That’s a good idea! I have been finding where to send those stuff for donation, as I have read that some of the stuff actually ended up throwing away. I would like those usable stuff be sent to those who can still make good use of them. Recently I have found a donation box near my house, hopefully those people will make good use of the donated stuff.
