5 Lessons I Learned by Decluttering for a Month

Join the challenge! Declutter your life in 31 Days.

That’s all folks.

Today is Halloween (want to see our costumes?) and the end of this 31 Day decluttering series, and I am here to give an accounting.

Five Lessons Learned from Decluttering My Whole Life

1. Stuff doesn’t bring you happiness.

2. Putting things away immediately saves a lot of work later.

3. Just a few minutes a day makes a huge difference.

4. Getting rid of the clutter is more freeing than I originally thought.

5. Organization is something you have to constantly keep up with.


Writing a 31 Day Series on your blog is insane. But you learn a lot from it, even if you feel like you didn’t sleep for the entire month of October.

For November, I’m going to sleep more. But I am also going to get to the big decluttering projects October didn’t allow. Namely kids’ rooms and craft storage.

I might even write about it.

Edit: Here’s what happened when I decluttered my craft storage.
