And the winners for week 1 of the challenge are...

All I can say is...good thing I have my spiral-bound notebook on my desk because I forgot I wanted to show you the picture and used the same browser window to start blogging this post! Hence...lost picture :)

And the winners are...

8 - Michelle who wins a Simplicity ecourse from Beth
5 - Marcia who wins a Household Organising File *
3 - Shirley who wins a Christmas Planner *

(I don't sell these products by themselves anymore, only as part of my Home Organising Product Bundle)

Now for some words of wisdom for the week ahead...

It's not too late to jump in - you are NOT behind. Just start exactly where you are. Who of you will join in on the challenge starting now? Post in the Mr Linky if you're a NEW declutterer.

Also, I noticed that some people aren't sure whether to declutter only one item or more than one. My answer depends on your situation.

  • I declutter regularly so I have very little clutter. For me, one item is often a stretch!
  • If you're not in the habit of decluttering, you might have TONS of stuff. In that case, go right ahead and throw out as much as you feel comfortable with, in a particular day.
  • The other Marcia, one of our winners this week, told me that she's doing light decluttering on the weekend because her grandkids will be there. That is GREAT because it means she has a system.
So do you have a system and a plan for the week ahead?

If not, why don't you tackle one room in your house?

Let me know if you have questions, okay? I'm here to help you get decluttered!

Marcia! Thank you so very much! I am so excited about this as on of the projects that I was hoping to accomplish for the month is a household organizer!!! I am very thrilled to be the winner for the household organizer, but most of all, THANK YOU again for this challenge. It has really helped me when I really needed it!

whoops I linked up before I read the rules. I am constantly decluttering, though, so I will definitely post something by the end of the next week.

I forgot to give you my link from my week 1, so I stuck in the Mr Linky today :)

I wish I had found you sooner! I have been organizing and de-cluttering this summer - big-time! Closets, cabinets, dresser drawers, you name it. I need to go back and read your original post on this challenge. Thanks!

Ok, I've successfully decluttered seven items for week 2! Here is the link to my post, since I messed up in the Mr. Linky above:
