Do you want to get your home decluttered with step by step directions, without feeling overwhelm, and without making a big mess as you go along?

If so, you're in the right place.

I'm Taylor Flanery, and I have designed these Declutter 365 missions to help you slowly, over the course of the year, declutter your entire house, 15 minutes at a time!

There is a 15 minute mission every single day of the year (hence the 365 part of the name) to help you get rid of all that clutter you've accumulated, so that you can enjoy your home again.

I've designed this page to give you all the information you'll need to get started using this program today to begin to declutter your home.

And while I feel confident the page contains links to everything you need to know to get started, I know this page only scratches the surface of all the information you'll learn as you DO the decluttering work.

The key is to jump in and get started now, and as you work on these missions you'll learn more and more, and develop a mindset of decluttering, as well as the habit of regular and consistent decluttering.

So, are you ready to dive in and take action today?

The first step, if you haven't already, is to get this year's FREE Declutter 365 printable calendar here, so you can participate with everyone else doing the daily missions.

To get the free printable year long calendar you'll need to subscribe to the FREE newsletter. Once you're receiving this newsletter it gives you the added benefit of regularly providing you with the relevant articles and links for the missions referenced in the calendar, so my newsletter is a great supplement to the calendar itself.

Once you have your calendar in hand, grab your timer, and look at today's mission, as listed in the calendar, and begin! Typically the missions are pretty self-explanatory, but if you want more information and instructions click the linked article, where available, on the PDF, to read more before you begin.

It's really as simple as that, but I know you may have more questions. We're all humans after all, and we want to make sure we're doing it "right."

Fortunately, you don't have to do the missions perfectly to see the progress and get the results you crave, because none of us are perfect. You'll sense a theme within these missions and on this site, which urges you to fight against perfectionism, and instead focus on progress and gradual improvement using small steps.

But I do have more answers for you below if you feel like you need more information at this time!

After all, I've been running these Declutter 365 missions for quite a while now (since 2012), and have had hundreds of thousands of people participate, so you can imagine I've gotten asked a lot of questions.

Here's my answers to many of these frequently asked questions, as well as additional lists of resources that can help you through your decluttering journey, following the steps in the Declutter 365 missions.
