It’s week 8 of the 2020 Home Organization Challenge. So far, we have completed the laundry room, home office, kitchen, pantry, master closet, master bedroom, and master bathroom. This week, we are clearing the clutter from the living room (or family room).

If you’re new to our challenge, be sure to print out the free challenge kit. It’s your guide for all 14 weeks. You can find it here. If you’re a visual person, you’ll want to get the challenge companion guide and cleaning book. Both of these are essential tools that will help you get your homes organized and cleaned from top to bottom. There are lots of pictures to help guide you through the challenges.

 
 

I cleared the clutter from my living room this week. I emptied everything from the baskets and drawers and purged things we no longer use. Take some time to do this. Once you do it, you will feel such relief.

 
 
 

I keep votives and candles in this basket. I emptied the other since we no longer used the things that were stored in it. The baskets are from TJ Maxx.

 
 

I have a chest of drawers to store “living room” items. The chest is from TJ Maxx.

 
 

The top drawer contains my essential oils.

 
 

I store candles in this drawer.

 
 

The final drawer contains family games & puzzles.

 
 

It’s completely fine to keep home decor in your space, as long as it doesn’t take over all visible surfaces. Get rid of trinkets that no longer bring you joy. Simplify as much as you can.

 
 
 

Use baskets to store throw blankets and kids toys. These baskets are from Home Goods.

 
 

Sources: My sofa is from Ikea. The chairs and coffee table are from Restoration Hardware. The curtains are from Pottery Barn. The wall color is Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams. The pillows and flowers are from TJ Maxx.

 
 
 

We have a cocktail cabinet that contains liquor, wine, & essentials that go with it. We have everything needed to make a mixed drink in this cabinet. It’s from TJ Maxx.

 
 
 

Concentrate on the living room this week, decluttering and purging things you no longer use. Give it a deep clean and move the furniture around (if you have time). It’s a great way to get those dust bunnies that are hiding.
