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.
My husband and I attended an open house on the weekend. It was a quite lovely two bedroom apartment and considering the small size there was a good amount the storage space. But my oh my, the occupants sure did manage to fill all that storage space and more. As a result I am basing this weeks mini mission on areas in this home that stood out as over stocked.
Monday – Declutter two excess items from your choice of casual clothing.
Tuesday – Declutter two excess cooking or serving items in your kitchen.
Wednesday – Declutter two toiletry or beauty items.
Thursday – Declutter two excess items from your choice of professional clothing.
Friday – Declutter an item of furniture the is cluttering up your space.
Saturday – Declutter and neatly organise digital media items that are scattered around your living space.
Sunday - Sunday is reserved for contemplating one particular item, of your choice that is proving difficult for you to declutter. Whether that be for sentimental reasons, practical reasons, because the task is laborious or simply unpleasant, or because the items removal requires the cooperation of another person. That last category may mean that the item belongs to someone else who has to give their approval, it could also mean there is a joint decision to be made or it could mean that the task of removing it requires assistance from someone else. There is no need to act on this contemplation immediately, it is more about formulating a plan to act upon or simply making a decision one way or another.
Good luck and happy decluttering
Eco Tip for the Day
When shopping for groceries try to choose items that come in the least environmentally offensive packaging or preferably no packaging at all. I have mentioned this before regarding soap, I only buy soap loose or in a cardboard box. Individually packaged snack food such a chips and candy bars are also big offenders when it comes to this kind of excessive packaging.
It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when I’m slow
