Declutter Game $100 Prize! #LiveWithLess

Declutter Game

For those who haven’t been following along with our Live With Less series, we had a game last month and I think I can speak for everyone when I say that we really enjoyed it.  It was surprisingly fun and so freeing!  Congratulations, to Ashley M. our winner for February!

I had just planned on doing it one month but at the end of the month I looked around my house and I honestly couldn’t tell that I got rid of a thing!  I haven’t missed anything and my house is still cluttered.  Maybe some of you don’t have an extra 400 and some things to get rid of again this month but I know some of you do…and I hope some new faces will join us.

For those who participated last month, I’ll save you some reading and say that the rules are the same.  For those who are new, welcome!  All the details you need are below and feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Declutter game - $100 cash prize!

A game that will hopefully end with everyone owning less stuff and one winner walking away with a $100 in cash!

The game is a simple one.  For the month of March, you will need to get rid of one thing on the first day of the month.  On the second, two things.  On the third, three things….and so on.  Clothes, toys, tools, junk, decorations, etc.

This is your mission should you choose to accept it!  It starts off easy but it will soon get trickier.  You can do it!!

Because we’re already a little behind you can make them up at anytime through the 7th.

How will I choose a winner?  We’re all winners by getting rid of our unwanted belongings but I’ll choose a winner from the people who take pictures of their discarded items each day and do one of three things 1) Share them on social media and tag them #EmbracingHomemaking and #LiveWithLess, if you’re not active online 2) Email the pictures to me at or 3) Share them in our Live With Less Facebook group.


  • – If you skip a day are you disqualified? No, but you may only skip one day at a time.  Two consecutive skips will disqualify you from winning but you’re welcome to continue playing.
  • Can you work ahead?  Yes, try to only do one or two days ahead though.
  • – Can you track my shares on social media?  Yes, if you use the #EmbracingHomemaking and #LiveWithLess hashtag I can track them.
  • – How can I make sure my emails get delivered to you? Okay, so no one would really ask this but for my sanity, could you please put #LiveWithLess Day 1 in the subject line?  Thank you!
  • – How do I make up the days that have already passed?  Simply take a picture of one item by itself, two items by themselves, etc. until the 7th, when you should be caught up.  By then you should have a total of 28 items being trashed, donated, or set aside to sell.
  • – If I share pictures of my junk in the Live With Less Facebook group will all of my friends see it?  No, not unless they are in the group.
  • – Will you be sharing the items you’re getting rid of?  Yes!  I’ll be posting them in our Live With Less Facebook group daily.  Forgive the bad quality pics, this is going to be a quick thing every day.
  • – What if more than one person makes it to the 28th?  That would be wonderful and I would choose a winner at random using
  • – What if no one makes it to the 31st?  Then I’m keeping the money for myself and going to the spa! 😉

A Side Note:

Have you been selling some of your items that you’re tossing?  I’ve been selling some of my unwanted things online and have been shocked at the money I’ve made.  So far this year, I’ve pocketed just under $800!  ….and I haven’t missed anything I’ve sold!!!

Who’s ready to play?  I hope you’ll join me!  This is more fun with friends!
