Living Clutter-Free

Got clutter?

Come on….. we all do!

Here is some of my own after-Christmas clutter as I took down decorations, put away new presents and de-junked the drawers, closets & crevices of our home.

Un-decorating the living room and Christmas tree.
Piles of papers, manuals and assorted junk that needed a good weeding through.

And, after two days of sipping coffee, listening to talk radio and working like a maniac, (only stopping to eat) here is a snapshot of the furnace/storage room in our basement. I pulled everything out of the bins, got rid of what we no longer needed and reorganized the items we still use. (NOTE: Don’t be envious of my plastic totes. One year, about a decade ago, for Christmas, my birthday & Mother’s Day all I asked for was money to buy these useful bins.)


Ta-da!!! After several hours, my "stuff" is all labeled and put away.

January is the perfect month to do a little clutter-busting.

If you are serious about wanting to get your “stuff” in order too, join my friend and ministry partner Glynnis Whitwer as she leads a 15 day “Living Clutter-Free” challenge that begins on Monday, January 9th.

It is based on her newest book, (the forward to which I was honored to write!) called I Used to Be So Organized.

If you want to check it out, click here. I’ll be joining along too as we encourage each other to bust those piles and de-clutter our homes and minds!

Happy clutter-busting!

  • LOVE it! Thanks for the peak and the inspiration! I always get the decluttering bug over the holidays too…..just too much stuff around.

  • I love to be able to see organization working for someone. I am just beginning to get to the de- cluttering (slowly but surely). Can’t wait to be able to see my house with labeled totes all organized and no more clutter. It seems impossible to me right now (especially with 3 young kids underfoot), but I know that… “With God all things are possible”!!! Thanks for the inspirational photos :-)

  • The timing couldn’t be more perfect………..sure hope we get some snow soon so I’ll feel like holing up and doing it……..LOL Thanks so much to both of you………..and yes, I am envious of your totes but more envious that you are already finished…………LOL


  • Hi Karen! I’m jealous too! I would love to be that organized!
    My problem is our house is small, no basement, & very limited closet space.
    I need to de-clutter before I can organize.
    I can’t wait for Glynnis’s challenge to begin.
