Mini Mission Monday ~ Dust collectors

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. People collect all sorts of things from beetles & baby teeth to Cars and everything in between. I used to have an elephant collection once, but the thought of moving that around the country, while married to a service man, didn't appeal to me and I let it go. But the one thing we all Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ One room

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 I want you to choose a room in your home that has a clutter issue, and this room is going to be the focus of your mini missions this week. Make a vow to yourself that you are not going to add any extra clutter to this room. Anything you use from or in it during the week you are going to Continue reading

From the archives ~ The departure point

Today I have brought this little gem out of the archives to share with you. It may be an oldie but it is still a goodie. The departure point, the staging area, the sorting space... whatever you want to call it, having one certainly makes decluttering more organised. This is the space where your chosen ones, that is the items you want to get rid of are moved to prior to their final departure from your home. This makes the initial decision making precess easier without the complication of dealing with an immediate removal. The system works like this... Chose an item you no longer which Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Memorabilia

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 it is time again to go through those memorabilia items. We all have memorabilia items that we wouldn't want to part with and that is perfectly fine. But most of us also have similar items that we only keep out of habit because tradition dictates that we should view these things as Continue reading

A previous life

How much space is taken up in your home with clutter from the person you once were. Do you still have… Sports equipment the will never be used again. Clothes that no longer fit. Musical instruments that you never really learned to play. College papers that are long out of date. Supplies for a hobby that you lost interest in some time ago. Music that you are embarrassed to say you once loved. Love letters from a faded romance. Books you read once and will never read again. Enough linen, crockery, cutlery etc to cater for your family of five when now it is just the Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Colour

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. Everyone enjoyed it the last time I had a set of mini missions based on colour, so I thought I would do that again this week. I have chosen a colour for each day and all you have to do is find something to declutter that is that colour. This is a very visual set of missions so that makes it quite Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Nooks & Crannies

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, for our mini missions, we are going to visit little nooks and crannies around the house which may have, up until now, remained untouched by human hands, or the vacuum cleaner for that matter, during our previous decluttering efforts. I will list seven places I have thought of below, Continue reading
