Welcome to Week 1 of the 30 Day Hoarder Challenge!!! If this is your first time seeing the challenge, join in at anytime! We write a positive affirmation in our journals (ones that we already have!) and let go of one thing each day! You are free to let go of one, two, three or more items on any given day. If it’s a great day, let go of 10 if you wish! The goal is to make decluttering a positive experience for each of us! The video below has more details if you would like more information about the challenge!
I hosted the “Spring Sharing Table” at my mommy’s group last week. Everyone bring in their outgrown clothes or unused items. At the end of the meeting, they get to “shop” for new things that they need! Almost like a huge clothing swap! This is so therapeutic to my hoarding because I get to see someone happily receiving something I donated. Instead of it sitting in my house, I transfer the joy to someone else and it gets used! I also get to see other mothers happily bring in their “clutter” so that their homes are more spacious. After the Sharing Table is done, everything gets donated to charity. It saves people a lot of money with all the “hands me downs” clothing they bring home. I also love that it stays out of landfills and is better for our environment.
