Welcome to the first week of our challenge! Remember this isn't just about cleaning things up, it's about getting rid of all the things you aren't using and don't really need that are causing clutter in your life.
To be prepared for this challenge you should have boxes for donation and "get-rid-of" items plus bags for trash. I also recommend reading through the book Simpler Living as we work through this challenge. If you have the book this week you will want to read through chapter 8.
This first week we are going to start by going through any kids rooms you have. And if you don't have any kids at home, don't think you are off the hook! This week you will clean out a spare bedroom instead. Remember that this challenge isn't just about cleaning things up, it's a serious cleanout of things that you don't really need anymore or don't use.
I'll be posting again in a few days so we can share our cleaning accomplishments (aka: how many bags of trash you cleaned out, how many boxes of things you are getting rid of).
What are the biggest challenges you will have cleaning out the kids rooms this week?
