The other day I thought what would help people get rid of their unused stuff? A challenge, of course. If you are looking to get rid of your unused/unwanted stuff, try this challenge.
So, here's how it works. It's 15 days of purging challenge that will help you get rid of clutter in your home. The premise is straightforward. Day 1 gets rid of 1 item, Day 2 get rid of 2 items and so on. It doesn't matter how big or small the item is. Just that you get rid of it, and you acknowledge that.
15 Day Purging Challenge
Day 1: Purge 1 item
Day 2: Purge 2 items
Day 3: Purge 3 items
Day 4: Purge 4 items
Day 5: Purge 5 items
Day 6: Purge 6 items
Day 7: Purge 7 items
Day 8: Purge 8 items
Day 9: Purge 9 items
Day 10: Purge 10 items
Day 11: Purge 11 items
Day 12: Purge 12 items
Day 13: Purge 13 items

I added a list of rooms below sorted from least stuff to most stuff to make it easier for those challenge days you have to purge more.

That's it. I hope this helps you get rid of those unused items that are taking up space in your home. Purging question: What is the one item that you had difficulty getting rid of on this challenge? Please leave a message below.
What a great idea for building those letting go muscles! I have to admit that I prefer the phrases "letting go" or "releasing" as alternatives to "purging" when it comes to moving the excess out. But I understand that we each have our preferences when it comes to organizing terminology. Whatever it's called, the challenge you created looks excellent, non-threatening, and doable.
This is a great idea for a challenge. Starting in a small room and then ending up in an attic, where it should be easy to find 15 things to purge, is a good tip.
Good way to get started if you are a little nervous about succeeding. One thing is much easier to do than getting overwhelmed because you think you have to do the whole room at once.
I've heard of this system before and found it a little intimidating, but your suggestion to start with a room that doesn't have much in it and work from there makes a big difference.
I love the simplicity of this challenge. It is true that starting to purge is the difficult part but once you start it gets easier. So challenge is perfectly aligned with that philosophy.
Excellent idea. Helps people get motivated to begin a process that is so hard for many.
Thanks Regina. I love it because it's so simple to do.
So simple, and yet so powerful. Great idea, Sabrina!
