31 items to declutter in January

Happy New Year! This year, I’m starting several new projects. One of them is a monthly decluttering checklist. Every month, there will be a post with a list of things to declutter that month. One item a day. You can do one thing a day, or 31 all in one go – it’s up to you. You might choose to spend 30 minutes a week doing the decluttering. Either way, it will definitely make a difference.

This month, we’re really focusing on the kitchen – and dealing with all those holiday decorations and gifts, of course! Don’t forget to sign up for my Fresh Start Food Challenge too.

The principles for decluttering are always the same: Keep what you use, need and love. Get rid of everything else.
