Declutter Summer Decorations {15 Minute Mission}

Today's mission is to declutter summer decorations in and around your home, now that summer is just about over and autumn is coming quickly.

Christmas Decoration Storage & Organization Challenge
This mission is designed to accompany the Holiday Decoration Storage & Organization Challenge that we have on the site, as part of the 52 Week Organized Home Challenge.

However, instead of doing all of the holiday decoration decluttering and organizing at once, just at Christmas time for instance, we do the missions periodically, throughout the year, while working through the Declutter 365 missions. This helps you focus on only decorations for a particular holiday or season at once, as you get out and then put away various types of decorations.

We have missions for changes of the season as well as for certain larger holidays throughout the year that many people enjoy decorating for.

How to declutter summer decorations, including for Independence Day and more, to keep only the decorations you enjoy and use, but getting rid of the clutter {one of the #Declutter365 missions on Home Storage Solutions 101}use this Pin it button to save to Pinterest
Today's the day to deal with summer decorations.

These could be general seasonal decorations that you've put out to celebrate summer, or for particular summer holidays of whatever variety you celebrate, such as Independence Day (Fourth of July) in the United States or whatever else.

Some people have special tablecloths and napkins, or plates or dishes, potholders, mugs, wreaths, or any number of other types of celebratory decorations.

First, think what decorations you do have for this season and if you didn't even bother to get them out this year to put
them up around your home, ask yourself if you really should be keeping the decorations at all.

There's no point in having items like this unless you actually use them. If they're so buried amongst other clutter you didn't have time or energy to dig them out, but you do want to keep and use them in the future, take the time now to organize and store the decorations in a way that will make it easier for you in the future.

This could be, for example, designating one storage container that holds only these types of items, so it's easy to find them when you want them, instead of digging through many different boxes of decorations.

Second, for those decorations you did get out this year, it's at the least time to put them up now, since summer is just about over, and instead to get out your autumn decorations.

As you put away these decorations look at each one for wear and tear, and really think about whether you want to save it and put it out again next year, or not.

Get rid of excess and clutter, and keep only the best stuff.

Then, make sure you put away anything you are keeping in an organized fashion, so you can easily find it all for next year, easily.

Below I've got a photo from a reader who has already done this mission, to get you inspired to do it yourself.

Are You Ready To Declutter Seasonal Decorations?

One reader, Melinda, sent in this photo above when she did this mission as she also decluttered her junk drawer. She said, "I guess we're set for the 4th of July?"

You may find different types of decorations and items to help you celebrate various holidays as you declutter your home. Make a place for them now, so you can find them when the time is right and enjoy the things you've already purchased and spent money on!

As I mentioned earlier, there are additional seasonal decoration decluttering missions here on the site that you can work through, to make the process of decluttering and organizing your holiday decorations easier and less overwhelming.

Here are additional Declutter 365 missions we do about this topic:

Once you declutter one type of item in your home I bet you'll want to declutter some more. After all, decluttering gives you a great reward for even a small investment of time and energy.

The Declutter 365 system is designed to help you declutter, over the course of a year, your entire house, with just 15 minutes of decluttering each day!

Hundreds of thousands of people use this proven system to get rid of their clutter, and bring peace and calm back to their homes.

Declutter 365 works to guide you to clear the clutter without overwhelm, focusing on just one small area at a time, and without making a huge mess in the process, so you see consistent forward progress without all that "messy middle" that makes it even harder to function in your home than before you started.

In addition to building a daily decluttering habit, the Declutter 365 program, along with the accompanying 52 Week Organized Home Challenge, teaches you the skills, habits, routines, and mindsets necessary to maintain the clutter free and organized state of your home from now on, so it'll never be as messy and cluttered as it is right now, ever again.

If you haven't already, make sure to get your copy of this year's Declutter 365 annual calendar here (it's FREE!), find today's date, and do 15 minutes of decluttering on the day's mission. Then, repeat again tomorrow, and again and again. Over the course of the next year, if you do this 15 minutes per day, you'll declutter your whole house!
