SK Simple Solutions’ The 12 Days of Christmas Organizing by Donating, Getting Rid of, or Keeping our Treasures in Just 12 Days!

12 hundred corks, 11 missing flip flops, 10 funny erasers, 9 piles of papers, 8 jars of dried goods, 7 old sharpeners, 6 Halloween tags, 5 paper bags, 4 shelves of linens, 3 snake skins, 2 festive pillows, and just 30 minutes organizing every day!

  • Set a specific goal: toys in playroom, shoes

  • Make 3 piles; donations, throw away, KEEP

  • Set the timer: 30 minutes

  • Go

Let’s look at the last 2 days, Day #11 & #12, of Christmas organizing.

On the eleventh day of Organizing

My organizer said to me

11 missing flip flops

Just 30 minutes to declutter every day!

Day #11

“I have too many shoes!” Said no one, ever!

Take a mental count right now and see if you can count the number of shoes you have. So how to store them. Clear the closet and under the bed. Do they all have a mate? Why are you keeping the shoes? Nostalgia? Let them go!

Sort by season, work/casual, sports etc. Use over the door holder, under the bed bins, flat shelves in the closet, or a hanging shoe organizer. Use an organizing tool that matches your style. Now that you have room from donating all those shoes….you open your closet and see all the shoes you have! Keep smiling.

On the twelfth day of Organizing

My organizer said to me

12 hundred corks

Just 30 minutes to declutter every day!

Day #12

Set a specific goal: 12 craft supplies

Make 3 piles; donations, throw away, KEEP

Set the timer: 30 minutes


Plan your craft room for the various types of crafting. Quilting, painting, vinyl, drawing etc. Then sort supplies by type. Remove dirty papers, crayons, dried paints, or supplies you don’t need anymore.

Plan your craft room floor plan. Use appropriate furniture to store supplies: cubbies, over the door hanging totes, desk, sewing table, closet.

How did you do these last 2 days of SK Simple Solutions’ 12 Days of Organizing? 30 minutes to declutter is feasible. Set a goal, sweaters, pans, sleeping bags only. Focus on that specific item. Use the 30 minutes to sort and evaluate what to donate, throw away, and KEEP. Put it all into a plastic bag, take it to the garage for donations, NOW!

We are on a journey to help change our client's clutter behavior by reducing what we buy, reusing what we have, and treasure & display our collectibles!
