30 day minimalism challenge

We have a simple little printable for you for free today, this is a 30 day minimalism challenge that is perfect to use as a spring cleaning checklist. It also works well as a checklist for any time of year to help declutter your house.

The idea of this printable is to help you to focus on your home, and creating a less clutter more minimalism approach within in. Tackle one room at a time, and move through your space, decluttering, and removing anything that hasn’t gone value for you; either personally or practically.

It IS difficult to declutter, as we put a lot of attachment onto things throughout our lives, but sometimes we have to be a little harsh with ourselves so we can keep our houses in check.

Decluttering isn’t easy – but we’ve got your back with this free printable!

We have split everything into thirty days, but if you want you can double it and take two days, or even three to do everything, depending on the time that you have to give the challenge.

It really is up to you how to work it out; what works for you, works for the challenge.
