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 weeks mini missions reflect the decluttering missions I was working on last week. I was a bit all over the house so they will be varied if nothing else. As usual if you don’t have anything similar to declutter then make up your own substitute mini missions.
Monday – Advertise something for sale ~ I use ebay mostly but I also offer things to friends and post For Sale ads to a Facebook group I am involved in.
Tuesday – Take a load of items you have decluttered to the thrift store. I do this once a week when I go to my thrift store to do my volunteer shift. I haven’t been able to drive there for the last four weeks so there was a bit of a backlog.
Wednesday – Declutter something you have been undecided about for a while. I sometimes put items aside that I am procrastinating about but after a while I get tired of seeing them in the “maybe” pile and just bite the bullet and get rid of them. These are often the kinds of things I sell on ebay. Selling them makes me feel better about my decision.
Thursday – Declutter something you have an alternate for. I am finally getting rid of that artificial ivy I have mentioned here before. I own a glass fish bowl that I now fill with pruned greenery from the garden. With Spring on the way there will be no shortage of options to display in it. Thank you to whichever 365er gave me this idea.
Friday – Declutter storage containers that you no longer need due to your decluttering efforts. These are another thing that I move to the garage when emptied. Once I am sure that I don’t have a use for them I make the final decision to declutter them permanently. The more useful or versatile the container the longer it takes for me to come to this decision.
Saturday – Declutter excess gift wrapping supplies. Last week I took the bulk of what I had left ~ gift bags, ribbons and bows ~ to the thrift store. As I have adhered almost religiously to my “no material gifts” pledge I decided it was time to purge these “just in case” items. The bag of bows was sold before I finished my shift.
Sunday – Declutter excess serving bowls. I probably have too many nice serving bowls but one thing is for sure, I don’t need to keep the cheap plastic one. It tends to be the everyday use option while the good ones are saved for when I have guests but you know my opinion on that tactic so out it goes.
Good luck and happy decluttering
Today’s Declutter Item
Here are some items I listed and sold on ebay last week. I had got very little use out of them but there is aways the temptation to keep them “just in case”. Instead I removed the temptation and turned “just in case” into cash in my paypal account and that is something I will use for sure.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
My success on ebay over the weekend. 9 out of 10 auctions items sold and the one that didn’t I am going to give as a bonus to one buying who bought several items. Share the joy I say!
