I love a challenge.
Especially a short one.
This minimalist living challenge will help you declutter and live more simply and intentionally in 21 days. It's for people who need a little kickstart of inspiration and instruction to get started with simple living. It will get you focusing on what matters.
If you start now, it will end right before holiday gifts start pouring in.
But you can start it anytime you choose.
