We Love This Low-Stress Decluttering Challenge

We Love This Low-Stress Decluttering Challenge

It’s rare that a new decluttering or organizing method comes along that feels like something new. But Christine Platt, the author of the forthcoming book The Afrominimalist’s Guide to Living With Less and the person behind @afrominimalist on Instagram, has our attention with her slow-and-steady decluttering challenge. Christine’s brand of minimalism looks very different from the one in our popular imagination—that of white rooms filled with the bare minimum of furnishings. It looks a lot more like what I’d call real life: In her home you’ll find colorful textiles, plenty of books, personal photos, and a cute (but small) collection of coffee mugs.

Christine’s approach to decluttering is also radical in its simplicity. Two years ago, she dreamed up the #1thing1day1year challenge. The idea came about after hearing from so many people who said they wanted to live a more minimalist lifestyle, but couldn't do it. Christine says, “I thought if it's just one thing a day, it would be a nice way to have people ease into it. Making it just one thing keeps it low-pressure.” But she also knows the infectious nature of clearing space out would get people to say goodbye to more than just one thing on some days.
