Mini Mission – Monday 29jan2018

Well where did that month go. Actually where did last week go. Sorry I dropped off the radar, it was Thursday before I realised that I had forgotten about the mini missions. I hope you all managed to find things to declutter without my help. Today I would like to suggest you find an item in your closet that you haven’t worn for a while and make a point of wearing it this week. Or at least trying it on to see if you actually like it and if is worth keeping. If the answers to those questions is no then out it goes. Continue reading

Delay your next grocery shop by doing a use it up challenge from your fridge, freezer and pantry. Begin this Mission today. I started this just after Christmas and I have almost achieved an empty fridge and freezer. Granted I don’t store a lot in them anyway but using what is in there, and being inventive also with what is in the pantry, I am well on my way to clearing away all ingredients that won’t keep while I go travelling for six months very soon.
