“Just wanted to let you know that I’m still in the decluttering challenge! I’ve tackled most of the weeks (with a couple of notable exceptions), not always finishing but at least I’ve made some progress. And I’m getting some ideas about how to organize specific areas. I am finding your suggestions on where to donate gently used items especially helpful – one thing my generation, in our Seventies now, finds especially hard is the notion of things ‘going to waste’. I’m putting the challenges and donation lists in a binder so I can refer to them easily.”JP – March 2021
You should start downsizing now
You might be in the majority if you know you too much stuff. Planning to age well, in your current home or in a different housing option, requires you to minimize your stuff. Downsize for safety, for ease of finding items, and future movement around your spaces. It’s much easier to downsize your items while you are healthy and able.
How it works
Once a week you will get an email with a challenge for the week, and some resources for you. Do the challenge at your own pace that week – commit to 15 minutes a day, plan a couple 1/2 hour blocks or dedicate one day a week – the choice is yours and no one is keeping score! There is no right or wrong way to do this. Just pace yourself to get that task done in the week.

The more the merrier
Invite your friends and family members to join the challenge at the same time. You can support each other, share donation drop offs and help keep each other focused on getting each challenge done.
But at the end of the day, you are accountable for you…no judgment, no score keeping, no shame if you don’t complete a task.
I hope you’ll sign up and join me! It’s going to be a fun project to downsize to ensure you can enjoy the space you live in to age well!
