The Uncluttered Project

my minimalist home

Hello and Welcome To The Uncluttered Project. We are so happy to have you here. This is broken up into pages so be sure to click on all of them. They will be updated often and more pages may be added as we continue this journey.

You’re obviously here because you want to improve the quality of your life through healthy cleaning and decluttering challenges. I’m so proud of you for making this step towards freedom. For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Victoria and I’ve been cleaning since I was 12 years old. When it was introduced to me, I felt like a slave. Forced to do chores that I didn’t like and if it wasn’t done properly, I sat there until it was. To this day, I dislike cleaning if it involves breaking my back, bruising my knees and causing some style of stress. None of us enjoy daunting tasks or feeling overwhelmed. As I grew older, I stopped doing it how I was taught and created monthly routines that helped with my anxiety, stress and overall well being. I learned how to take charge of my life through these healthy living habits and you are about to do the same!

The Uncluttered Project Is All About Healthy Living

Cluttered surroundings overload our senses causing levels of stress and anxiety that our bodies don’t need. These senses send off signals that are unhealthy and toxic. The only way to eliminate the toxins from our bodies is to remove whatever is causing the negative reaction. No. I’m not a doctor, just a lifestyle expert who focuses on minimalism, decluttering and stress free environments.

Imagine feeling helpless. Perhaps you already do. If there is no escape route, then we suffer a great deal of mental illnesses. So, how do we take back our sanity?

We get rid of everything that causes us anxiety, stress, anger. It’s people, places, and things. Toxins that we didn’t even know about.

Sounds, vibes…energy is how we fully function in the universe.

Ask yourself what bothers you? Is it a piece of clothing that you’ve had for decades that you’re just tired of seeing but never realized how easy it was to toss? Maybe it’s a closet of old memories that you just cannot let go of. Maybe, just maybe it’s someone who bothers you?

You’re Allowed To Ditch People Too

the uncluttered project is all about releasing the bad energy in our lives through mindset, decluttering, cleaning not only our homes but our brains as well

We are going to be breaking up these challenges into daily lifestyle changes and by doing this, it gives us the ability to feel less rushed, less stressed. No one wants to be rushed to do something because then it’s just a hot mess- Mama don’t got time for that! Do this at your own pace. You’ve got this. It’s a lifestyle; nothing more, nothing less.

In an effort to eliminate the things we can learn to live without, we experience value and purpose creating specific ways to tackle our homes that are ideal for our space.

This everyday commitment increases productivity and wealth in the home. You learn to do something small that gives you a big feeling. A feeling of goodness, power and success.

Intro Challenge- this is where you introduce yourself! Feel free to scroll to the comments section here titled ‘SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS’ and tell us who you are, what you’re looking to accomplish over the next six months, if you have any of your own helpful tips, success stories, goals, etc. You can also head to the group and write a post there titled, ‘INTRO CHALLENGE’ and then mark DONE in the GUIDES section!

THE UNCLUTTERED PROJECT- a new trend that gives you back your sanity!

Social Detox Challenge: this is an important step in your decluttering game! Part of a decluttering process is eliminating people that are toxic to our well beings. That includes internet friends. It doesn’t matter if they are family or lifelong friends. If they post things that give you an unsettling feeling, I want you to either –

  • unfriend them
  • or unfollow them
  • if it’s a page you follow, unlike it or unfollow

Each month I go through my liked pages and unlike if I don’t have any interaction with them. Engagement that doesn’t exist needs to be cleared out. Just like your emails. Go through and delete the unnecessary chaos.

After you’ve given yourself enough time to SOCIAL DETOX, go through old posts to delete any that you might be ashamed of posting. I’ve done it, you’ve done it, we’ve all posted or shared something that perhaps we shouldn’t have. Give yourself a day to go through social media posts and delete the old ones that don’t exactly portray who you are today!

How to social detox: a 15 day challenge that helps you unclutter your social media platforms. By doing this, you regain your strengths and visions for a brighter tomorrow.

  • Delete old friends and people you don’t ever talk to
  • Delete and unfollow groups and pages you no longer like
  • Go through your personal and business feeds to delete older posts that are no longer relevant to your niche
  • Delete the apps from your phone so that you don’t get the urge to scroll, post, etc IF YOU CANNOT DO ALL OF THEM AT LEAST TRY TO DO SOME!
  • Do not feel like you have to check in. You’re doing this for you and you must remember that
  • In place of social media you’ll find activities that spark interest and do them each day for the next 15 days

One day can be writing in a journal or on your blog. The following day can be snapping photos outdoors, so on and so forth.

  • Refrain from posting your progress until the 15 days are up
  • Record your daily activities that replace the time you would normally spend on your phones
  • Use this time to regain your sanity, self worth and creativity you’ve maybe lost overtime

HOW TO REGAIN YOUR SANITY THROUGH THE UNCLUTTERED PROJECT

When you’ve detoxed from FB + IG jump back on to create a new vibe for your feeds.


LET’S GET STARTED MAMA’S

Start extremely small – I want you to throw ONE old t-shirt or pair of pants you never wear anymore away right this second (I’ll wait while you go do that).

Fantastic! Whooohooo! I bet that felt incredible.

The next thing I want you to do is write a note on a piece of paper and stick it to the refrigerator. It will say, “I’m ready to unclutter my life, what shall I throw away today?”

You will keep this posted until you feel confident enough to do it without seeing the daily reminder. Once it becomes your subconscious you will feel renewed and enlightened.

Focused attention plays a crucial role in actually altering the structure of the brain. With repetition, these chemical links actually become stable changes in the brain’s structure. { VIA }

The more you remember to do something, the more you create a lifestyle that promotes wellness, healing and progress.

New mindset challenge-

What do you want your home, your life, your family and your surroundings to look like?

Envision this and then act upon it every single day you wake. A healthy life begins with a healthy mind, so when you have a negative thought; simply counter it with the vision you developed from the beginning. Remember that this alone is an EVERYDAY challenge and in order to CONQUER it you need to be mindful with everything you do from here on out.

a healthy mindset leads to an abundance of wealth
  • Wake up at the same time daily
  • Make your bed
  • Affirmations
  • Drink lemon water
  • Have at least 2 cups of coffee (or tea/juice) before you begin your day
  • Give yourself 2 hours to get ready each day before you leave the house
  • Do small tasks around the house slowly
  • Open blinds, take a shower and take on the day

The most important person that we can take care of is ourselves. If we don’t take care of ourselves first, we cannot take care of our loved ones-

When you’re done with the mindset challenge head over to our group and share your new journey with us.

Day Two – be ready to start discarding

Getting Used To The Idea Of DON’T THINK, JUST TOSS Challenge

Now that you have the mindset you desire I want you to get excited about tossing things. Turn off the phone and grab a bag. It can be a small recycled bag you have saved from the grocery store.

  • Head into the bathroom with your bag and open the drawers- look inside and see what needs to be tossed immediately and throw in the bag. Leave what you believe you need and close the drawer.
  • Open the shower and toss old bottles, things that have seen better days. The shower should have a limit to what it stores. Only keep the products you use daily in there.
  • Lastly open under the sink and toss any old things that you haven’t used in over a week. Expired medicine, dingy items and things that you’re tired of seeing/not using.

Food For Thought

How many times do you open the drawers in your kitchen? Or even the bathroom? The kitchen is the heart of the home and where we go often. So, open the drawers, not just to get a butter knife but to see what’s going on in there. And do this everyday. Do you like what you see? Is it too crammed. Too little in one and not the other. Looking crusty? The crumbs have you cornered? Take a look. Are they to your satisfaction? 

  • Place odd things in a small basket or zip lock bag until you can find a new home for them (if they need to be kept)
  • Simplifying your drawers to a count system : take the number of people in your household and X 2. That’s how many pieces of dinnerware, silverware you should own

Same in the bathrooms! The more you visually look into something that is closed, the more you’ll want to clean and clear them. So after you’ve gone through this challenge of TOSSING some things out of those drawers, repeat tomorrow—–> even if it’s just ONE thing. Repetition is everything.

Everyday Uncluttered

Tip Of The Day : Every item in the home has a home of it's own. FREE FOR ALL spaces are banned. That just means that you cannot just throw things into any drawer or closet to basically neglect it from having a real home.

Day 3-30 will be at your own pace following the challenges below that suite your home & lifestyle! You’ve got this……let’s go!
