Week 4 – Break Week #1

It’s Week 4 of the 2024 Clever Girl Organizing Challenge! And, as promised, this is one of two breaks built into the schedule. Not going to overwhelm with anything (it is a BREAK, after all), but wanted to hand some guidance.

Use this week to: 

  • Keep organizing! Catch up on something you wanted to keep focusing on from weeks 1-3
  • Keep organizing! Look ahead at a project you think you want to get a head start on now
  • Keep organizing! Work on your #scaryspace or tackle a space or category that *isn’t* on the SCHEDULE AT A GLANCE
  • Switch Gears! Catch up on other life projects you’ve been neglecting whilst organizing
  • Make those #exit strategies happen! Whether it’s getting stuff out or scheduling some pickups for future week decluttering, make the stuff go away!
  • Okay, maybe take a breather 🙂 

Glancing ahead –  next week we’re working on our CLOTHES, so THIS week would be a good one to pay attention to catching up on laundry, and maybe even sending that long-neglected dry cleaning pile out so that you’re ready to review your full wardrobe next week.

Feel free to take a break from the Facebook Group this week, or stay just as involved and share some stories about your week! 

You can also use this week to post some #banda photos and they’ll count as part of your 9-of-11 weeks for a free hour of virtual consulting with me. I

Also – no live video this week (though I may pop in for a quick spot if I’m so moved.


Happy Organizing!
