Don't ever forget the daily Declutter 365 mission again. Instead, sign up for these missions to be sent as text message reminders directly to your phone each day, from now through the end of 2020.
The concept behind the Declutter 365 missions is that you do one decluttering task each day, for all 365 days of the year.
That's because the key to success with the Declutter 365 program is small, consistent, daily actions, so you get the benefits from the gradual and continuous improvement that comes with slowly, but steadily, decluttering area after area of your home.
Remember, slow and steady wins the race.
The question becomes though, how do you remember what each day's task is, so you can do it?
Making sure everyone remembers what each day's task is in the Declutter 365 calendar is something I've been trying to address, as part of this program, since its inception.
First, I created the calendar itself, which you can print out and reference every single day.
Of course, this requires you to print it out, and also to remember to actually look at it daily.
For some people this works. I tell them to reference a calendar each day, and they do it. Of course, it's not that simple for many of us (and that's OK, that's part of human nature!)
After all, if for most of us building new habits like looking at a calendar each day, and remembering to be consistent were easy tasks, we probably wouldn't need some additional help with decluttering and organizing our home to begin with.
So, next I started posting the daily missions on various social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. (Remember the Declutter 365 program has been running for many years, so social media used to be newer technology than it seems like it is today.)
To a certain extent, posting the content each day to the various social media platforms worked well for participants, at least for a few years.
Assuming someone was already in the habit of checking whatever social media platform that I posted on, on a daily basis, and they followed my posts, they would see, at least most of the time, the day's mission and get their reminder.
However, that only worked if that participant in the program already was in the habit of checking social media daily, or could start that habit, and then, it only works when the social media platform shows the post to the person asking to see them. That was true about five years ago, it's not true anymore.
Unfortunately, these days, with the algorithms that these social media companies have in place, it's basically impossible to consistently be shown these reminders anymore, and I often see statements from people who finally, randomly see one of the posts, that says something like, "I haven't seen these missions in forever, I'd forgotten all about them!"
That's frustrating for everyone involved. But fortunately, I've come up with a good solution to fix these problems!
That's why I'm so excited that, for the second year, I'm offering you the chance to get the Declutter 365 missions, each day, sent to you via text message on your mobile phone.
This solves two problems at once, for a lot of us.
You may or may not be in the habit of checking a certain social media platform every single day, but many of us do check our texts daily, often within a few seconds to minutes after the ding that tells us we got a text.
Plus, when you sign up for the text messages, unless you tell them to stop (which you can do, by unsubscribing later), you'll actually be sent the messages. There is no algorithm that decides for you whether you'll actually see the thing you said you wanted to see! Instead, if you ask to see it, you will! An amazing concept, right?
The end result with receiving a reminder of each day's mission via text message is that you'll actually see these messages, actually get reminded what you need to do for the day, and then you've set yourself up for success to actually DO the mission for the day.
After all, you can't take action on the day's task if you don't know what the task is.
This is not a free service, but instead an add-on to the Declutter 365 program you can purchase, because these texts cost me money to send every single day, and doing so for free would be cost-prohibitive for me.
In addition, please note that the texting service that is being used only works for U.S. based phone numbers. If you have a non-U.S. number the texts will not work on your phone, so don't purchase these text reminders if you have a non-U.S. phone number!
To receive daily text messages, for each day's Declutter 365 mission from now, through December 31, 2020, costs $36.50, and can be purchased here.
Here's an example of one of the texts sent out as part of this service, so you can see what you receive each day.
It's short, sweet, to the point (it can only be 160 characters or less), and where applicable, includes a link you can click if you want more information.
The daily text is sent at approximately 8:00 a.m. EST each morning.
Here's what others, who've gotten the texts already, are saying about them, and why they are helping them with the Declutter 365 daily missions.
If you want to get each day's Declutter 365 mission texted to your phone throughout 2020, plus get an annual subscription for the Premium Facebook group, make sure to purchase the bundle of these two products together, instead of purchasing them separately.
When bought as the bundle you'll save $10.50!
1. What Do I Get When I Purchase From The Shopping Cart?
Once you've purchased this product you'll receive a PDF document from me which provides further instructions for how to opt-in to receive the daily text messages. Then, once you've opted in through your mobile phone you'll begin to receive the daily texts. The PDF document will go into more detail.
2. What Type Of Text Will I Receive Each Day?
Texts are typically very short, with 160 characters or less, that may include a link to my website for further instructions, if I’ve written an article about that particular day’s decluttering task. As always, it’s optional whether you read the linked article.
The daily texts you receive will correspond with the information on the 2020 Declutter 365 calendar, so on February 11th, 2020, for example, you will receive a text reminding you about the mission listed on the calendar for that day.
The texts are not set up to start from the beginning of January when you sign up, so if you receive your first text on February 11th, you will NOT receive January 1st through February 10th’s texts through the service. Instead, your first text will tell you the mission for February 11th.
You will receive one text per day, normally. It would be rare to receive more than one text from me per day, although it can happen for reasons such as a long description of the day’s mission, or because I need to make a correction to a text already sent out.
Your time and texting space are valuable, so my goal is to be brief and to the point.
3. How To Stop Receiving Texts If You Don’t Want Them Anymore
If, at any time, you decide you no longer want to receive these daily Declutter 365 mission texts, you can stop receiving them by replying to a text you’ve received with the term “STOP” (do not use the quotation marks).
However, once you’ve subscribed to the texts with your mobile phone number no refunds are available, even if you decide to cancel the texts later.
After unsubscribing, if you later change your mind, any time during the 2020 calendar year, and want to begin receiving the texts again you can re-subscribe, and then resume receipt of the texts at that time.
4. Standard Text And Messaging Rates May Apply
Everyone’s mobile phone contracts are different, including how you pay for texts. Please be aware that standard text and messaging rates may apply to these daily Declutter 365 mission texts, just as when you receive any other texts.
5. How Long Does This Subscription Last?
The subscription, once purchased, begins on the date of purchase (even if that starts in 2019!), and lasts through December 31, 2020. Therefore, to get the most value out of the subscription it is best to purchase and opt-in to receive your texts as early in the year as possible.
When it gets closer to 2021, assuming you want to continue receiving texts into the following year, a new subscription for that year will become available for your purchase.
6. Reminder Again: The Texting Service Only Works For U.S. Based Phone Numbers
The service I am useing to send out the texts only works for U.S. based phone numbers, so if you have a non-U.S. based number you will not be able to receive daily texts. Please don't purchase this product if you have a non-U.S. based phone number.
7. Special Instructions For Those Renewing Text Messages For 2020
If you purchased the 2019 version of the text messages, and are renewing for 2020, make sure to read the PDF document you'll receive upon purchase of your renewal subscription, so that you receive the requested texts without also receiving duplicates from your previous subscription!
