Look around your living space, and imagine that half of your clutter were gone.
In one month, it will be. You’ll be living a beautiful, simple, clutter-free life.
Along with my friend Courtney Carver, I’ve created the Clutterfat Challenge — we challenge you to get rid of half your clutter in 30 days. Sign up today — it’s free!
It’s exactly like a bodyfat transformation challenge, where you might try to lose bodyfat in a month. But instead of getting rid of bodyfat, you’re getting rid of clutterfat. Trim off that excess clutter, and you’ll have a lovely streamlined living space.
Courtney and I have done this ourselves, and we’ve found incredible benefits:
- Life feels better when you live in uncluttered space.
- Having fewer possessions means easier cleaning and less maintenance, which means more free time.
- If you sell your possessions, you can make some extra money.
- If you donate or give away your possessions, you give them life with someone who needs them.
- You create space to breathe, to create, to contemplate, to read, to relax.
- Eventually you could move to a smaller space, saving you tons of money.
Sign up for the Clutterfat Challenge, and get started:
- Read the Welcome Page
- Register for free
- Use our clutterfat inventory recommendations and start counting your stuff, room by room.
- Add your starting clutterfat number and images
- Declutter by selling, donating and trashing your stuff
- Add your final clutterfat number and images at the end of the 30 days
At the end of the challenge, we’ll highlight some of the best transformations.
Update: Courtney has created a Facebook page for those who want to connect with each other during the Clutterfat Challenge.

To help you with the challenge, I’m holding a free live webinar on Thursday (Jan. 5, 2012) at 8 pm EST. I’ll talk about some of the best ways to tackle the challenge — how to tackle your mountains of stuff, how to deal with some of the tougher items, and so on. You’ll also be able to ask me questions live.
