Here are answers to Declutter 365 FAQs, with everything you need to know to get started decluttering your home using this program today.
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 (it's my gift to you, a $20 value).
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.
Whenever you're embarking on a big, life-changing journey, like getting your home decluttered, it's nice to have help. So along with following the Declutter 365 calendar, you can get more help and reminders about the daily missions directly from me, Taylor.
It's important to remember, each day, what your daily 15 minute mission is, so if you've got a U.S. based phone number, make sure to sign up for these daily reminders of Declutter 365 missions via text messages. They track the current year's calendar, reminding you the mission for the day. (You can click the link to read the article with more information about this product.)
Please note that the texting service only will text to U.S. based phone numbers, so only get this if you've got a U.S. based number.
If you live your life using a planner, like I do, you'll love these Declutter 365 planner stickers (click the link to read more information about this product).
This is a digital download formatted to allow you to print all 365 daily missions as daily to do stickers that you can stick right onto the pages of your planner. Then, each day you've got the daily task already listed in your planner, ready to incorporate into your daily to do list.
Both the dated version and an undated version of these planner stickers are available.
Along with daily reminders, getting support through motivation, encouragement, and help when you need it can make the process of decluttering your home much easier, and give you the tools to succeed.
To help with all these tasks I've created a private and exclusive Facebook group that you can join where I can help you with monthly group decluttering coaching through the missions and tasks, and where I provide more tips and ideas to help you declutter your home, organize what's left, as well as focus on the skills, habits and routines necessary to maintain your space from now on.
Do you want to get your home decluttered, but want to choose your own time frame and order to do it in? If so, I've got the perfect resource for you -- 33 printable decluttering checklists that are a comprehensive list of everything to declutter in your entire home.
When you get this printable pack you get 63 pages of decluttering checklists, and they can be used printed or you can check off the items on the list digitally with your PDF open on your tablet or other device.

Finally, join the public Declutter 365 Facebook group here, which as of the time of this writing has over 225,000 members.
