Week 7 – Break Week #2

It’s Week 7 of the 2024 Clever Girl Organizing Challenge! This one aligns with Massachusetts public school vacation week, and I know many of you Challengers are either going away or home with kiddos and organizing work may just not be in the cards. 

Use this week to: 

  • Keep organizing! Catch up on something you wanted to keep focusing on from earlier weeks
  • 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 –  we’ve got some big weeks in the future, including memorabilia and things like hobbies or kids toys/games. If you’re feeling like those might be tough ones for you, maybe use this week to get a head start, even if it’s just in your HEAD — what’s your plan, what are you worried about, what would feel great at the end?

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!
