Get Your Home Ready for the Holidays: 28 Day Challenge - Welcome!

28 days-simplify101-1
Welcome to the simplify 101's blog Creative Organizing. If you're new to our blog, we're in the middle of a 28-day series of blog posts designed to help you get your home holiday-ready. If we start today, we can do a little bit every day, and be ready to welcome friends and family into our home for the holidays. That means you can spend more time enjoying the holiday festivities instead of stressing about your house!


This 28 Day Challenge is like a free, little taste-test of our online workshops right here on the Creative Organizing Blog. My Quick + Simple Clutter Control workshop offers daily prompts (similar to the ones we’ll be sharing in the 28 day challenge) throughout the workshop. The idea behind these daily prompts is to help you bite-size the process of decluttering your home and / or spring cleaning it (which is the focus of the spring session of this workshop.) So you’ll get a taste of bite-sizing a big project and taking action with online accountability and friendship.

Hi Aby, Thanks for the challenges. I'm getting so much done. I even did the laundry room which sometimes gets overlooked. I enjoy Finish-It-Friday. I decided to have any entire week to really get things done. What a productive week it's been so far. Have a great day!


Thanks so much for organizing these links!!! :)


Thanks, Dottie! So glad to hear you're getting lots done!

EEEEMommy - thanks for suggesting it!
