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
We are going to do a declutter tour of our houses this week and visit one room a day. While you are in each room do a little visual declutter. What I mean by that is, aside from the mini mission item you are removing you might spy an area or two that needs more attention later on. Make a list of these areas so you remember where and what they were for when you have a little extra time up your sleeve. I will leave the item up to you to choose but I want something removed from each room I mention each day.
If by some lucky chance you don’t have seven different rooms in your home and have a lot less housework than some, chose seven different function areas. Even in a small living space we designate spaces for paperwork, cooking, bathing, relaxing, sleeping, dining, storage etc so concentrate on each of these areas if you don’t have separate rooms.
Monday – Bathroom (Perhaps you have some old make up brushes you no longer use)
Tuesday – Dining Room (Perhaps you have some excess linen in the buffet)
Wednesday – Living/Lounge Room (Are there old magazine in your coffee table drawers)
Thursday – Bedroom One (There is nearly always old clothes that are hiding in the back of the closet)
Friday – Bedroom Two (Children’s old toys may be found here)
Saturday – Kitchen (There is always something lingering here, unused gadgets particularly)
Sunday – Laundry (Cleaning products that didn’t perform well or old cleaning rags are often found here)
Good luck and happy decluttering
Don’t forget to leave a comment telling us what you managed to achieve with your mini missions.
Today’s Declutter Item
These little plastic bottle held beads and hotel shampoo. I was saving them to put more beads in but have convinced myself that I need no more beads unless I use something else up. I will use the one in one out method to keep things under control in the craft room. So these bottles are useless to me and unfortunately they went in the bin because there is no recycle mark on them.
Things that made me happy, made me laugh, made me feel grateful, fascinated me or I thought were just plain awesome.
- I had fun at a surprise birthday party of a good friend. ~ It is so nice to be a part of the celebrations of life.
- I looked after a friends dog and she gave me a clutter free thank you gift of two plants for my garden.~ I needed a little inspiration to do some gardening now that the weather is colling down.
- Roast chicken dinner.
- The cooler nights of Autumn.
- Chatting with an old friend from America on Facebook ~ it was great to hear from her.
It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when I’m slow.
