#TNTLFreshstart: Week 1 Challenges

The Nifty Thrifty Lady Fresh Start Challenge, A Challenge that helps you reach finanial goals while decluttering and creating systems that work

Are you ready for a Fresh Start in 2016? I know that many of us are and there are many of us that this may seem overwhelming too. If you fall in the latter category I would still encourage you to take on this challenge, because, I promise you it will not be overbearing and at the end you maybe pleasantly surprised at you now feel ready to take on bigger and better tasks!

So lets talk about what you need to do for week one!
The Objective of the Fresh Start Challenge: is to declutter your home to achieve a small financial goal and in the process create working systems that make your home more efficient.


Week Ones Tasks:
 This week you need to set a up a few dates. 
The first is a donation day each week that you can clear out the items you are going to donate.
The second is a checklist or chart to track the income have made from the clutter you are selling to reach the financial goal. You can read more about this in the Introduction.
This means you also have to set a financial goal. Make this realistic. If you don't have a lot of clutter but want to create better systems I would make your financial goal smaller. If you know you have a large amount of things to sell I would make the financial goal larger.

If you have not already done so make sure you print out the Daily #TNTLFRESHSTART calendar that will tell you the designated areas of your home to declutter on each designated day and will help keep you on track with the others joining this challenge.

This weeks areas are as follows:
Monday: Bedroom 1
Tuesday: Bedroom 2
Wednesday: Bedroom 3
Thursday: Bathroom
Friday: Bathroom
Saturday: Linen Closet
Sunday: Rest/Catch up day

The goal in each room is to clear clutter, straighten up the room, and create organization systems that help keep "Hotspots" clear. 

I will be posting my progress daily on Instagram and do my best to scope Monday-Friday.
Every Saturday I will be sharing my overall progress by Video on YouTube and on Sunday around 7pm I will share the new weekly challenge.
