The weight that's always on your shoulders!

Published 11 months ago • 1 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 7 of the challenge! This week we're focusing on decluttering our purses & wallets!

Every time you leave the house, you carry a literal weight on your shoulders! This week, we're working on reducing the amount of stuff we carry around with us everywhere.

You'd be surprised how much weight just a few things can add to your purse!

So often, we feel the need to bring everything with us in our purses "just in case." But how many times have you actually used all of that "just in case" stuff?

Do yourself (and your back) a favor and remove the things you don't truly need and use whenever you leave the house. You'll be amazed at the difference it makes!

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

  1. If you haven't yet, download the FREE challenge pack here.
  2. Follow the instructions for Week 7 (purses & wallets).
  3. Spend 10-15 minutes each day completing the checklist for Week 7 (found in the FREE challenge pack).
  4. By the end of the week, you should have a lot less junk in your purse & wallet (and the most important part- you'll start creating a habit of decluttering).

In the FREE challenge pack, you'll find a worksheet under Week 7 to help you figure out exactly what items truly belong in your purse, and tips for creating an emergency kit .

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!
