30 Day Tidying Challenge • Day 28 • Cleaning Supplies & Pets

Welcome to Day 28 of the #30daytidyingchallenge! This challenge runs from February 18th to March 19th, and if you're tidying with me over the next 2 days, the plan is to be finished in time for the first day of spring on March 20th (or the March Equinox if you are located in the Southern Hemisphere). This tidying challenge is based on the KonMari method, and I was hugely inspired by these three resources: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and Spark Joy, and Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.

To help with the process, I put together this calendar, which shows all the different categories I'll be tidying during the 30 day challenge. Depending on your situation, you may want to tackle this project over a number of months, and that is totally ok too! You can still use the calendar--just follow the order, but take more time for each set of categories.

On Day 28, we'll be tidying cleaning supplies, laundry supplies, and pet supplies.

Some thoughts on Day 28:

1) I wasn't able to let go of my back-up products. Instead I stored them in a place where I can remember to access them. Marie Kondo advocates letting go on any items you have in excess (i.e., massive amounts of back-up items). I couldn't seem to do this, because I know I will use the Dr. Bronner's soap and other products I've stocked up on in the past. Instead of keeping these like items together though, I've decided to store the back-up items where I have storage space--in the many baskets at the top of the wall unit and in the locker. I'm going to put together some sort of inventory where I can keep track of these items so I don't forget about them in the future.

2) Certain categories are fun to tidy. Pet supplies is one of these categories for me! Truffle and Lulu bring me so much joy, and they are not picky about material things, so it was easy to determine what to keep and what to let go of. Truffle doesn't like toys, so his collection is already pretty paired down. Lulu only loves certain toys, so again, that made the tidying process rather straightforward. Overall, I really enjoyed tidying pet supplies, and I was in good spirits throughout the process!

Thank you for tuning into Day 28! If you're tidying alongside me, please let me know how you're doing. I would love to hear about your journey and if you have any tips or tricks to share. I'll see you tomorrow for Day 29.
