Challenge Du Jour -- Clutter Grab

On your mark, get set ....and go!

:) It's our first challenge du jour for slobs -- a clutter grab. As soon as you've finished reading this message, off you go.

It's easy -- just grab 20 things and deal with them. Meaning - get rid of them, organize them, give them away. Whatever -- just go and tackle 20 cluttery bits and get rid of them dear slobbo! 20 might sound like WAY too much to do, but you'd be surprised by how easy it is to find twenty unnecessary things just cluttering up your home. (And how we slobs LOVE to collect cluttery things. :) We can hardly help ourselves, it's just our nature.)

Post a comment if you DO this challenge and tell us whatever interesting things you found, how you felt - or anything else you'd like to share.

Hugs to you,
Christina (who is having a rather marvelous sun-shiny Saturday)

P.S. If you do more than 20 - BRAVO! You're a Happy Slob extraordinaire! This mini challenge is to get our organizing engines revving for Monday - when we're having a big, bad DECLUTTERING CHALLENGE. Watch for it...

I just did the challenge du jour...... dealt with 20 thing in about 3-4 minutes. Gee, that went fast. That was fun. Are we going to do it again????

Hey I just de-cluttered my desk!! It was at least 20 things!

Yay Cinnamon! :) See, that wasn't so bad was it? I'm still needing to do my closets...I've been doing a bit of decluttering here and there and they REALLY need it because we have tiny closets and too much stuff jammed into them.

Happy Slob, I'm a late-comer to your blog, but this challenge du jour is an excellent and simple way to clean quickly. However, I have one question: what counts as a "thing"? You say de-clutter 20 things, and I was wondering if a small pile of, let's say, newspapers (a week's worth of Wall Street Journals, for example) qualifies as one "thing"? This question could also apply to a stack of clothes or possibly some free weights. ~Thanks
