Quick declutter challenge 4 – Livingroom

The challenge started with cosmetics, continued with bedrooms, and then the dining room.  You can join the challenge anytime and do it in any order. Remember to work quickly for 10 – 30 minutes going around the space and collecting items you no longer need, use or love.  Use music to motivate you and a timer to help you stay on task.

Donating and recycling

Many items can be recycled, batteries, pens and markers, and printer cartridges at Staples.  Habitat for Humanity takes building supplies and old electronics for recycling.  Check with thrift stores in your area.  They take household goods, clothing, toys and furniture. Books can be donated at Value Village.


You may want to sell some items, look at Facebook Marketplace, consignment stores, Kijiji and Craigslist. When selling items to strangers, meet them in a public place and have someone with you.  It is the time of year when you can do yard sales.

The Challenge

This challenge can be applied to your family room, living room and recreation room.  Get everyone involved and make the quick declutter challenge go faster.
