I'm hosting a challenge on the Organized Friends Facebook Page! You are invited to join in and spend the weeks and days up to Christmas getting your spaces cleaned out during the Christmas Cleanout Challenge.
Here are a few ideas on how to incorporate the number into your decluttering:
- Gather 20 bags of items
- Declutter 20 spaces
- Declutter for 20 minutes a day
- Declutter 20 items or more
The holidays may look different for some of us, or near normal. Either way there is still room to spend some time decluttering and the feeling of letting it go will be amazing!! We have been blessed with an abundance of things that have served their purpose. We can say thank you and send those items to others who will find joy in having them now.
Here's to ending 2020 on a lighter note! I look forward to seeing what you accomplish and how creative you are with the theme of 20!

Did you know that re-organizing is a thing? That you can get a do over with how you keep your things contained? I'm sure it's not a mind blowing concept, but it sure can feel mind blowing to make some tweaks and realize how much better the result is.
Here are some of the drawers in my kitchen I wanted to tweak:

It's another week of progress to report following Organized Home's House and Holiday Plan, which you can find here.
Our family space is our living room at the front of the home with our television, coffee table and couches. It stays pretty tidy most of the time. I made the effort to wash the throw blankets and some deep dusting! As I write, I realize I should have opened the drawers on the coffee table and our end tables to see if any treasures exist that need to exit.
We are prepared for Halloween with a large stash of candy for trick or treaters. Did you catch that in my last post? No costumes, no party, no indoor or outdoor decorating. It's a different experience as empty nesters!
In Christmas preparation, I added a few ideas for gifts to my list in my Christmas planner. I also began to set up my gift wrap station! I need to add the scissors, the tape and a pen to write on gift tags.It does feel a little early, but the gifts have started arriving. I will wait a bit longer to start wrapping...like next week or the week after. 😀

I'm loosely following the House and Holiday Plan at Organized Home. Week seven had a focus of bedding and bathrooms, in addition to a bit of shopping. The link posted will take you to the details.
I personally did not put any focus on bedrooms or linens, which is preparation for guests. We have what we have and no changes or decluttering needed in this area since we only have sheets for the beds we have. Easy!
I did review under bathroom cabinets and the hall closet.
