Mini Mission Monday Template

Mini Mission Monday is about finding ten minutes a day to declutter. To make it easy for you, each Monday I set seven declutter missions, one for each day of the week for you to follow. It takes the guess work out of decluttering and makes it easy and "fun" for you to achieve some quick decluttering. This week the mini missions will have a two fold purpose, one to find something to declutter, as usual, and the other to force you to observe what you bring into your home. Sometimes we don't notice the little things we bring in that can, over time, build up into a whole lot more clutter. Monday Continue reading

Declutter for the person you are now.

Does your clutter say more about the person you aren’t than the person you are. Or perhaps the person you were, rather than the person you are now. First lets consider “the person you aren’t v. the person you are. Do you have outfits in your wardrobe that are the latest fashion but don’t really suit your taste or your body for that matter? Are there also pretty but uncomfortable shoes in there that you avoid using, and when you do it is torture. Do you have ingredients in your pantry, shelves of dusty cookbooks or files of unused recipe clippings, and a kitchen full of rarely used utensils, Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Annoying stuff

Mini Mission Monday is about finding ten minutes a day to declutter. To make it easy for you, each Monday I set seven declutter missions, one for each day of the week for you to follow. It takes the guess work out of decluttering and makes it easy and "fun" for you to achieve some quick decluttering. Most clutter is annoying, mostly in a subtle way that is just niggling in the background. However some clutter is more annoying. So let us work on that more annoying clutter today. Hopefully in the attempt we will all identify some items that we will feel much better for getting rid of. So lets Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Consider these items if you haven’t already

Mini Mission Monday is about finding ten minutes a day to declutter. To make it easy for you, each Monday I set seven declutter missions, one for each day of the week for you to follow. It takes the guess work out of decluttering and makes it easy and "fun" for you to achieve some quick decluttering. This week’s mini missions address items that you may not have considered decluttering in the past. You may not even consider the idea when you see what they are, but I thought I would make the suggestion anyway and allow you to give them some thought. I no longer have any of the items mentioned Continue reading

Freeing up space

I talk a lot about freeing up space in cupboards, closets, shelves and floors. No one ever seems to have questioned me as to what all this space is being freed up for. What is the point in having empty spaces on shelves or floor space that could hold furniture to store or organise all your stuff. Given that you don’t need to declutter anything if you don’t want to then I could understand why this would come into question. However you wouldn’t even be entertaining the thought of decluttering if being cluttered was working for you. One thing for sure, that I have mentioned before, is that Continue reading

My personal guidelines on document files.

Going through and decluttering your filing cabinet can be a nightmare when it has been neglected for a long time. So I have written a set of guidelines below that I use to declutter my files and to avoid paperwork buildup in the first place. Don't file anything you don't need to keep. By "need" I mean absolutely should keep. Don't allow anxiety to force you to keep documents that aren't really important. Only keep tax papers for the government prescribed length of time then declutter them. Switch to as many digital documents (bills, newsletters, school notes etc) as possible so the Continue reading
