Mini Mission Monday ~ 4JUL2011

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, since I am on vacation (sort of), I am going to take it easy on you as well. We will do some really quick mini missions that shouldn’t take long. Keep it simple is the theme of the day, just glance at each of the areas I set and declutter any obvious items that meet your gaze. If the exercise inspires you to do a thorough declutter of the area then good for you but it isn’t necessary so don’t blame me if you get carried away. You can give me credit for inspiration if you like though. 🙂

Monday – A shelf in the pantry.

Tuesday – Your junk drawer if you still have one after all my nagging.

Wednesday – Your bedside cabinet/table.

Thursday – Sock drawer, anyone’s will do.

Friday – The glove box of your car.

Saturday – A bathroom cabinet or drawer

Sunday – The shoe cupboard/box or wherever shoes congregate in your home. My son thinks this is the floor under my breakfast bar but he is ill-informed ~ actually he is constantly informed that this is not where they belong but he is reluctant to comply.

Good luck and happy decluttering

Today’s Declutter Item

As you know I travel light. I see no point in owning a box like this that takes up more space than the items meant to be kept in it. Yet another item for the thrift store.

Something I am Gratitude For

I am grateful for whatever divine intervention put the idea into my head to declutter one thing a day. This thought jumped into my head in a split second one day and I went with it and haven’t looked back.

It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when I’m slow.

  1. Colleen,

    I am still working on the “keepsake” box. I started going through the kids’ school stuff and there are five boxes worth. Once I started, I couldn’t stop and the stuff is now all over the kitchen and dining room tables!

    I think I will finish this task before starting anything else. LOL

  2. I too am grateful that you had the split second idea and that you ran with it and have shared it on the internet with us all. Through it, I have met some great friends, read helpful and interesting blogs and last but not least gained the encouragement and inspiration to keep on decluttering here. Thanks!

    OK, I can handle those mini missions this week 🙂 Maybe I’ll do them in a different order but I’ll get them done.
