Love by Decluttering

I’ve had this happy little plan in my brain for the past month. This February I’m going to focus my decluttering efforts on places that I know will be most meaningful to my husband. The reality is that he is thrilled with any decluttering project that I do. And of course these decluttering projects are good for me, too. Good for the whole family, really.

But I have in mind some places that I know would mean a lot to him. Don’t we all have areas where the clutter just gets to us more than others? Places where a clutter-free, peaceful environment makes a bigger impact on our day? Decluttering my purse doesn’t really impact him that much. I have a little list of projects that will.

I was going to list them here, but since he likes surprises, I’m only going to tell you (and him) about one for today.

It’s a big one.

The Master Bedroom.

And to make it extra fun and motivating, I’m going to participate in a 29 day challenge that Laura over at Org Junkie is doing.  The bedroom will be a month-long project.  I also plan to do at least 2 other projects during the month. You will just have to wait and see what those might be.

Do you have anyone you want to show love to by decluttering? It doesn’t have to be a spouse. It could be your children, your parents,  or a friend who could use some help. Just make sure that the decluttering is a welcome idea. We wouldn’t want to force decluttering on someone who doesn’t want it!

I’ll be back tomorrow to show you some before pictures for my big bedroom decluttering project!

  1. What a totally awesome valentines idea! I might – just maybe – do it too. We’ll see if I can get it together.

  2. That is very sweet. I would love to receive this gift. Maybe I’ll tell my husband I want some garage decluttering love for Valentines Day. 🙂

    A couple of years ago, my Valentine’s Day gift to my husband was a sparkling clean living room, so he could walk in the door to the “perfect” house. 🙂 He loved it! You are inspiring me to head upstairs and give our room the royal treatment.
