September 2019 Be Awesome Challenge – Daily Purge

Posted by Mimi Gaylor on

Get rid of at least one bag of “junk” every day……

In September, we continue the “Be Awesome” challenge.

I love monthly challenges and my goal is to totally switch things up every month so no boredom is involved.

I have a confession to make….. I’m have a lot of “junk” in my house! Several years ago I purchased Marie Kondo’s book on “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up”. I really wanted to put this into action but I never did.

I have a terrible way of getting emotionally attached to items. This doesn’t just apply to my planner related items. So, there is so much stuff in my house that is no longer useful to me but I just can’t seem to get rid of.

The thought of totally clearing everything out causes me panic. I also don’t want anyone else to come in and do it for me because they may throw out something that will cause me to have a stroke!

So, I have been making an effort to clear things out slowly. I’ve already gone through my bedroom and cleared out old clothes, bags and shoes. Now I need to tackle the rest of the house.

I know I need to give myself some grace during this process. So this is why I’ve decided to concentrate on getting rid of one bag each day. It doesn’t have to be a big bag…. just as long as I keep the process going.

One day it may be a bag that goes into the trash. Another it may be a bag for donation. It just depends on where I decided to place my focus.

I hope you will join me on this journey to clear out the clutter….

Here is an interesting video that suggests some habits for a clutter-free home.

I’ve created a monthly planner sheet to help you document your progress each day. You simply need to add it to your cart and check out for FREE. The ZIP file contains a OneNote page and PDF sheet. You can add this to your OneNote planner or print out the PDF and add it to your paper planner.

Feel free to post your progress on Instagram with the hashtag: #beawesomechallenge – You can also tag me if you like: @every.day.awesome.tv

I will be doing a mid-month and end of month check in to see how I’m personally keeping up with the challenge. This check in will only be available to my members so you may want to consider supporting the shop and signing up if you want my updates! (Members also get HUGE discounts in the shop!)


*This challenge is inspired by a book I am currently following along called “100 Life Challenges”. You can get a copy for yourself on Amazon.
