Join the Downsizing Challenge now!
Are you feeling overwhelmed with all your stuff? Have the kids left home and you are wanting to take back your space from all the stuff? Do you know you need to downsize to a smaller home but all your stuff is stopping you from making that move? Wanting to age in place but find there is too much stuff in your place? Is helping your aging parents downsize their home overwhelming to you?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this may be the right challenge for you to join in. This is designed to a be a leisurely downsizing assignment to last 6 months – 24 challenges. But don’t get me wrong, you need to commit to get this done and do the work to see the results. I’ve made it easier for you to do this in small chunks, working a little bit every week…and by spring – you won’t need to spring clean!!
“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
Why am I running a downsizing challenge?
Because every day I meet with people who are overwhelmed by their stuff. Their stuff stops them from making good decisions for their health, where to live or when to make a move. Their stuff brings worry and anxiety. So the only way I can do this is to help people get through this, with a little help from my friends. I’m very fortunate to work along side many great professionals who can help you on this journey and you’ll get a chance to meet many of these professionals (and friends of mine) along the way.
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 plan one day to work on it a week. There is no right or wrong way to do this. Just pace yourself to get it done in the next seven days.

Are you ready to commit to the downsizing challenge?
I’m doing it along side you…you aren’t alone. I have too much stuff too…so invite your friends and your family and others you know to join in. This free challenge will send you an email once a week with a new area to focus on. Friends can join the challenge at this link above anytime, but they will start right from the first week whenever they join.
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 winter project to take our homes back from all the stuff!
