Banish that junk mail for good!

Published 11 months ago • 2 min read


This summer, I'm hosting the free
Summer of Simplicity series. In this series, we're focusing on decluttering, organizing, and creating routines & habits to stop the clutter from coming back... all in just 10-15 minutes a day!

Welcome to Week 8 of the challenge! This week we're focusing on decluttering our mailboxes!

Mail clutter is a very real problem in our homes. Between the bills, credit card offers, catalogs, magazines, newspapers, cable offers, etc, it's enough to drive a person insane.

And for the most part, there's no need for any it! In today's digital society, it is completely possible to manage a home with very minimal paperwork involved.

But for some reason, our mailboxes are still bombarded with junk on a daily basis! We have enough clutter to deal with without worrying about the stuff that comes in the mail, too!

So this week, we're going to reduce the amount of mail that arrives in our mailboxes.

This is going to help set you up for success for the fall & upcoming school year!

READY TO TRANSFORM YOUR MAILBOX? HERE'S HOW TO GET STARTED:

  1. If you haven't yet, download the FREE challenge pack here.
  2. Follow the instructions for Week 8 (reduce mail).
  3. Spend 10-15 minutes each day completing the checklist for Week 8 (found in the FREE challenge pack).
  4. You should start noticing a lot less mail arriving at your home over the next few weeks!

In the FREE challenge pack, you'll find a checklist under Week 8 to help you keep track of all the places you can stop mail from.

SUBMIT YOUR PHOTOS!

If you're following along with the challenge this summer, please share your before & after pictures. Your photos will help inspire others on their decluttering journey.

As a thank you for sharing, you'll be entered into a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to the Simplicity Shop. Every week you submit photos, you'll receive one entry into the drawing. (Increase your odds of winning by submitting photos each week!)

To submit your pictures, simply reply to this e-mail or send them to celeste@simplicitystory.com. I'll draw a winner at the end of the summer challenge!

I can't wait to hear all about your progress this week, Reader!
