Mini Mission – Friday 29Sep2017

Declutter yet another item from your kitchen that is never or seldom used. There are so many items in most kitchens so there is usually something among them that can be decluttered. Continue reading

Mini Mission – Thursday 28Sep2017

Declutter an item from the season you have, or are still moving out of. Winter for us in the South and Summer for those in the North. It could be a clothing item or anything related to that season that you did not use this time around and doubt you will ever use in the future. Continue reading

Declutter some sort of carrying equipment. Perhaps on suitcase, backpack, handbag, tote... that you no longer favour. Continue reading

Mini Mission ~ Friday 22Sep2017

Declutter at least one textile item. This could be clothing, linens, towels, rugs, cushions, curtains... and the list goes on. I am continually doing a use it up challenge on yarn by knitting socks for anyone among my family or friends that would like them.

Some of my hand knitted socks are made purely from leftovers which helps clear out the drawer and makes for some interesting socks.   Continue reading

Declutter something with type.

I am sure we can all easily find something to fit this category. Continue reading

It could also be a food item in your pantry that has been lingering for a while such as canned fruit or veggies, grain products or dried fruits. I could do a use it up challenge on some dried fruit for sure. Continue reading

Declutter something that requires more work than you have time to put into it. This may be a craft project, an item that needs repairing or perhaps a cooking implement that you never use because you just don't have time for cooking fancy recipes. In my case it could be make-up, because I couldn't be bothered with it for the most part but I only own the bare minimum so I will leave it as it is for now and look for something else.

Mini Mission ~ Monday 18Sep2017

Declutter something that is metallic, either in colour or construction. It shouldn't be too hard to spot such items at a quick glance and then all you have to do is decide whether you wish to declutter them or not. The kitchen drawers might be a good place to start. Continue reading
