Are you ready? Project Simplify starts tomorrow!
I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and get to work on my home. We don’t have a lot of stuff, and I declutter regularly—but I still feel the need to get my game on every spring and refresh our living space. Up for joining me? Read more about Project Simplify.
Tomorrow we’re starting with kids’ stuff—clothes, toys, books, games, whatever. If you don’t have kids at home, no worries. Instead, focus on your own personal stuff—your wardrobe, your jewelry, or whatever you keep in your master bedroom.
How photo sharing will work
You’ll have four options for sharing your before and after photos on Friday and Saturday of each week:
1. Link up your own blog.
If you have a blog, share your process, your thoughts, and your before and after photos there. Then link to your post on my Friday posts—you’ll see where to link at the end. Sound confusing? Don’t worry; it’ll be clear what to do this next Friday.
2. Use Instagram.
On Instagram with your iPhone? Awesome; sharing your photos will be really easy. Simply upload your photos on Instagram, caption the photo to let us know if it’s a before or after shot, and—this is important—tag it with the hashtag #projectsimplify1. Or, if it’s week 2, use the hashtag #projectsimplify2, and so on. Don’t worry; I’ll remind you of the hashtag each week.
That’s it! It’ll show up on Friday’s post in a gallery.
3. Use Twitter.
If you’re on Twitter, upload your before and after photos in tweets, using the hashtag #projectsimplify1 for week 1 (and #projectsimplify2 for week 2, as mentioned above). That’s it as well! Your tweets will show up in the post.
4. Upload your photos directly.
No blog or Instagram? No worries. You’ll be able to upload your photos directly to the post. At the end of the post you’ll see a spot to upload your before and after shots. I’ll explain how on each post.
I’m looking forward to doing all this with you! Just think of the result—at the end of March, your home will be more peaceful. Sounds nice, no?
