Get ready, the Love Home Challenge starts next Sunday, September 15!
Years ago, I started the Declutter Challenge when I was at a personal low and I needed something to get me out of the funk. I outlined what I personally needed in a list. When I looked at the list I created, it was literally a 13 point bullet list of places in my house I wanted to declutter. My first pass through what would ease my stress directly became the program that has helped thousands of people declutter their homes and lives.
We think we are the only ones with our kinds of problems, but it turns out most of our problems are universal.
It is also universal that we all want homes that feel good. That’s going to look different for each of us, but the main goal is the same. We want to love our homes.
When I started designing this falls’ Love Home Challenge, which traditionally is about doing things to help us fall in love with our homes again, I was brainstorming what to focus on and nothing felt right.
When I flipped my thinking and brainstormed what would relieve stress in my home and life, the list came quickly and easily. So I’m going to take the same risk I did when I created the original 91 Day Declutter Challenge. I’m picking the things that will help me feel better in my home. Maybe you’ll relate? I think you will.
2019 Love Home Challenge
This year’s Love Home Challenge will be split into 4 different projects, each designed to ease a different kind of stress we may be feeling in our homes. The ultimate goal is to fall in love with our homes again.
We are going to take 2 weeks per project, because I’m definitely not in the mood to rush. (There are too many life things happening to go any faster than two weeks per project, am I right?!)
Here are the projects –
- Project #1: Refresh Master Suite (September 15)
- Project #2: Tidy Up the Garage (September 29)
- Project #3: Organize the Kitchen (October 13)
- Project #4: Manage Family Photos (October 27)
And for your convenience, I’ve created a little planning sheet that you can print and jot down your ideas. Turn your thoughts into goals, then your goals into a plan!

About the Love Home Challenge
This challenge will be group supported but the projects you choose will be the ones YOU need to do within the area of focus. I’ll give ideas and help at the start of each project period.
There is no printable to buy with this challenge. Project ideas will be on the blog and additional support will be in our Facebook Group.
Share with your friends! Involving friends and family in your efforts gives you backup and gives you more support to succeed!

Make specific goals that are accomplishable! Don’t say “organize all my photos that I’ve ever taken” – say “organize digital photos for 30 minutes a night” or “create an album for 2018.” Do you see the difference? We’ll keep reviewing goal-making, but start thinking about what you want to do and make notes on your planning page.
This challenge is not all about your kids and their spaces, though of course it will all benefit them anyway. Anytime you work on creating a less-chaotic home, your kids will feel it.
We are going to approach the areas that are either usually neglected or just get used so much that they need love several times a year! And there’s a good chance, these projects are going to help you fall in love with your home again.
From my home to yours,
