Let the declutter challenge begin!

Even with a goal of just 30 minutes a day you can see noticeable improvements. And if you are not someone who likes to devote an entire day to cleaning, then the declutter challenge of 30 minutes a day can help you undo the clutter you have created in your home. Even if you cannot completely declutter one room in 30 minutes, you will make a small amount of progress every day! And that fits the personal philosophy that many of us have about life in general.
