RELATED: Spring De Junk Your Home Challenge 2014, Best Cleaning Tips and Tricks

Last year, the challenge inspired me to get rid of of tons of unneeded items in my home and to have a garage sale. As a result, our family has been much happier (you can read about getting rid of most of our toys here). Surprisingly, I even managed to keep a few areas clean and organized all year! I know, it’s a miracle. Don’t be fooled, though. My house is still in serious need of decluttering and cleaning. Keep reading to find out how to join with me and ten other bloggers to declutter your home for spring!

Welcome to the Spring De-Junk Challenge and Giveaway!

We’re announcing the challenge a week early so that you have time to mark your calendar to be ready to join us on Day 1.

The Instagram Challenge:

For 10 days, do one thing every day to make some progress toward de-junking or spring cleaning your home.  The challenge starts Monday, April 27th, and continues until May 7th. (That’s 11 days, in case you would like to take Sunday off. If you chose to continue through Sunday, you can end the challenge on May 6th.)

  • Each day, pick a spot in your home that you need to clean or de-junk.  (For some, this may be one drawer.  For others, it might be the entire garage.  Do what works for you.  Big or small, it’s still progress!)
  • Before you tackle the mess, take a before photo and share it on Instagram.
  • When you’ve finished dejunking or organinzing that spot, post another photo of your newly cleaned space. Include the hashtag #SpringDeJunkChallenge with both photos so that we can follow your progress and to inspire others to join the fun.
  • No Instagram account?  No problem.  Use Facebook instead.
  • The purpose of taking pictures and posting them is to make the challenge more fun and to inspire other people to join us.  Everything’s more fun with a friend, right?  If taking and posting pictures will keep you from completing the challenge, feel free to skip that part. (I think you’ll find that it’s pretty motivating, though!)

So, are you up for the challenge? Follow your hosts on Instagram (links are in the Rafflecopter for the giveaway) to see how we’re all completing the challenge and to get some ideas.

The Inspiration:

11 bloggers have accepted the challenge. To add to the fun, all 11 of us will share a special post about getting our home in shape for Spring on Day 1 of the challenge. Don’t forget to check back on Monday to get lots of inspiration for your own home.

The Giveaway:

What challenge would be complete without a prize? For most of us, the prize will be a clean and organized home. For one lucky de-junker, the prize will be a little bigger. How about a little something to improve your home? Maybe $210 to spend at!!!  Sounds good, right? So enter away!
