Have you been busy scrubbing the inside of your pantry or washing the walls of your garden shed? If you answered yes then you’re probably pregnant… or a much better housekeeper than I am! haha

You don’t want to waste all of your incredible pregnancy nesting energy on something like vacuuming out dresser drawers. If you’re anything like me, pregnancy is the only time you think of carrying out such odd jobs. It may be worthwhile to do these jobs since you may not ever consider them again, but you don’t want every day to be filled with tidying things that don’t amount to much help after baby arrives. The postpartum version of you will be mad when she realizes what went down! So put away your magic eraser- I know you’ve been using it since we last spoke– and listen up!

The Pregnancy Struggle Is Real.

Doing one task each day will help you complete the 30 decluttering challenges quickly, but don’t feel like you have to do one challenge every day in order to reach your goal. I was pregnant not too long ago and some days you just have to nap it out. You are creating a tiny human after all!
