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 are all about the act of actually getting your clutter off the premises. Choosing something to declutter is one thing but the mission is not complete until you actually take the final step to get it out of there. There are several ways to go about that ~ sell it, return it, transform it, donate it, recycle it or trash it. So here are your missions for the week.
Monday – List something for sale that you have been putting off for whatever reason.
Tuesday – Return something, whether that be to another person or to a store.
Wednesday – Repair something that has been sitting useless so it can become useful again.
Thursday – Choose a few items to declutter prior to tomorrows mission.
Friday – Deliver a load of decluttered but still useful items to a charity of your choice. Or if you have the option phone the charity to come and collect if from you.
Saturday – Declutter some items, that are no longer useful to anyone, by putting them immediately into the trash or the recycling bin.
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
