If you’ve been reading Midlife Rambler for a while, you know I’m a huge fan of decluttering your home to make your living space calm and efficient. But there’s one thing I have trouble throwing away: my photos. I even wrote a blog post about it!

The folks at Shutterfly share my love for family photos and they also share my love for decluttering. So Shutterfly reached out to me to see if Midlife Rambler readers would be interested in Shutterfly’s Guide to Decluttering Your Home in 30 Days. I know we’re all focused on decluttering as our nests empty and we begin downsizing so I, of course, said, “Yes, please!”.
A Guide to Decluttering Your Home in 30 Days
Spring cleaning can be daunting. It’s hard to set aside a whole weekend of sunshine to clean out your home. It can also be easy to get distracted whilst clearing the bookcase or looking through old photos that were buried in a drawer. Set yourself up for success by decluttering your home in a strategic manner.
The best way to declutter your home is to take it day by day. Each day spend 20 minutes cleaning up a specific part of the kitchen or living room. Set aside the same time each day to clean (morning usually works best) so that you won’t forget and won’t run out of time.
Follow Shutterfly’s tips on how to declutter your home in 30 days and let them guide you in your cleaning process. They have broken the house down by room and have a suggestion for what to clean each day. Print out the list and check off each item as you go. By the end of the month, your house will be clutter-free!
