Mini Mission – Tuesday 17Oct2017

Take a look in the place where you keep underwear and socks. Declutter any items you tend to avoid using. Continue reading

Mini Mission – Monday 16Oct2017

Declutter some some excess items for your linen closet. Most people have more of these items than are necessary. 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 While you are at it give some thought to what items seem to go out of date without being used up.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

Mini Mission ~ Wednesday 4OCT2017

Declutter, or start a use-it-up mission on, something that you constantly pass over to use a similar item instead. This might be a toiletry item such as a hair product, hand cream, body wash, purfume etc. Or maybe an ingredient in your kitchen, or a crafting medium, or even something as simple as a pen you don't like the flow of... I am sure you can think of such an item. I am going to set myself a challenge to use up some of the cardstocks in my craft stash that I never use. And maybe some embellishments too. To be honest, I suppose, I do this all the time because my whole craft stash is a Continue reading

Mini Mission ~ Tuesday 3OCT2017

Declutter something that requires too much maintenance than it is worth. Perhaps an item of clothing that requires dry-cleaning. Maybe a collection of knickknacks that you are tired of dusting. Or maybe some silly kitchen gadget that you spend more time, digging out of the back on the cupboard and the cleanup after use, than the time you save by using it. Continue reading

Mini Mission ~ Monday 2OCT2017

Declutter one of those obligation items. You know the ones, things you keep out of obligation. Maybe someone gifted it to you and that is the only reason you keep it. Maybe an item someone made for you, or anything that you keep because you feel you should regardless of the fact that you no longer want it. Continue reading
