Hello! Is this thing on?

Hi all

I have a quick question for all of you:

Is anybody out there still doing the challenges on a regular basis?

I'm thinking of stopping it totally but I'd like your feedback first about the Friday Declutter Challenge.

  1. what works for you?
  2. what doesn't work for you?
  3. would you notice if I stopped?
I don't mind honest feedback so go ahead and let me have it!

I do the challenges if it is an area that I know needs to be taken care of immediately! I try and stay on top of most areas of my home, but there is always a few areas that get overlooked.

I'm new to your challenge. I love it. I have lot's of decluttering that needs to be done and need your suggestions. But I do understand if not enough people are doing it, you may need to stop. But just let you know I've done a few and it has helped me a lot! said...

I always take note of Friday Challenges.
It becomes an area where I then question - should I do this? have I been avoiding it? have I already done this and can tick of this accomplishment? did I do it some time ago and it needs doing again? All this is helpful.

I like the challenges--I always have grand ideas about blogging about them that I never fulfill, but I like having the suggestion of something to work on every week.

Hey everybody

Thanks so much for commenting, especially to all the new commenters :)

I’m glad the challenges have helped you!

I do read them, and even though I've never posted any feedback on your blog, it definitely helped me get motivated to do some way-too-long-procrastinated tasks. And I love when I read the challenge, think about it, and decide that it's an area that doesn't need any decluttering! It's doesn't happen very often, but still... really enjoyable! ;-) Thanks for the inspiration!!

I love the Friday Challenges! It's only been a few weeks since I discovered them, but they have helped a lot!

There's something about isolating sections to declutter that really helps me wrap my mind around what I'm doing. I don't get overwhelmed and/or distracted so easily that way.

Just a short note to say please don't stop! I don't always have time to post but your prompts really help me to stay on track!

I've enjoyed reading the challenges, as they give inspiration and ideas on little things that are easy to overlook and seem very thought out and cover a wide range of areas. But to be honest, I rarely actually do the challenges because I tend to follow my own cleaning routines and priorities. So on the one hand I've been enjoying them, but on the other hand, if you did them on a less frequent schedule or skipped them I probably wouldn't notice.
