Mini Mission – Friday20Oct2017

Go through a box of stuff you have had stored stored somewhere out of sight out of mind for a long time. Chances are, if you haven’t looked in it for an eon, then you don’t need to keep what is inside of it. Continue reading

Mini Mission – Thursday 19Oct2017

Declutter a potted plant that is not pleasing to the eye, whether it be real or fake. There is nothing pleasing about a live plant that looks sick or a fake one that has seen better days or is covered in dust and cobwebs. Alternately, do what you can to revive this plant and bring it back to its former glory. If you have no plants find a decorative item within your home that could do with decluttering or some sprucing up. Continue reading

Mini Mission – Thursday 12Oct2017

Declutter a couple of useless things from a kitchen cupboard or drawer. Possible to make room for something that usually resides on the cluttered bench top. It is difficult to keep a kitchen clean when there is stuff all over the benches. Alternately, if you are a person who has none kitchen related objects cluttering up your kitchen benches maybe it is time to clear them out and change this habit. Continue reading

Mini Mission- Tues & We’d 10&11Oct2017

Oops! Sorry folks I missed yesterday’s mission so there is an extra one today to make up for it. Do a quick declutter in your refrigerator. While you are at it give some thought to what items seem to go out of date without being used up. You may need to reconsider what quantities you buy them in, a better storage method, or if you should stop buying that item altogether. Some time ago I stopped buying salad dressings for just this reason. I always have vinegars, oils and frozen herbs which have a long shelf life and can be thrown together in an instant to create delicious dressing so why Continue reading

Mini Mission – Monday 9Oct2017

Declutter one small area that’s is easy to tackle in one short time frame. I think I will tackle my sewing drawer it is small but a little jumbled and most likely has at least one thing in it I can declutter. Continue reading

Mini Mission ~ Friday 7Oct2017

Declutter a technology item such as an old cell phone, redundant charging cords or other tech accessory that you no longer, or maybe never did, use. It is amazing how these items can accumulate. Earbuds with only one side working would be a fine example of this, or ones acquired free on aeroplanes during long haul flights, guided tours etc. So they can build up in drawers all over the house, or in the bottom of your handbag. We tend to bing them home whether we need them or not because we know they will end up straight in the trash otherwise. Young people are often good recipients of this Continue reading

Mini Mission ~ Thursday 6OCT2017

For this mission I would like you to do some investigation on how to donate a specific kind of item to a recipient that will most appreciate it. This is so that you have a resource for donating, perhaps unusual, items that you may fear will end up in landfill if simply sent to a thrift shop. Here is an example for you. On the weekend I went browsing around some yarn stores to investigate what yarns were out there and which shops held the best ranges. While chatting with one friendly staff member in an alpaca yarn store I found out that there is a thrift shop in Sydney that sells only Continue reading
