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 I am going to give you some ideas on things to declutter based on the items I have admitted to myself that I rarely use and see no point in kidding myself they are worth the space they are taking up in my home. If you don’t have similar items chose some things you rarely use in your home to get rid of.
Monday – One set of crockery, my “good” set that is rarely used and not that good anyway. If my everyday set is good enough for me I guess it is good enough for those I invite to dine with me.
Tuesday – Some vases that are rarely used.
Wednesday – Shoes that I rarely wear that are too uncomfortable.
Thursday – Jewellery. Now that I don’t work and rarely dress up I don’t see any point in keeping so many of the pieces I made myself. The thrift store will benefit from the sale of these.
Friday – More craft items, also rarely used
Saturday – Now declutter unused sports gear. In my case the ski clothes we no longer use. It is a good time to put it all on eBay here in Australia as we are going into winter. We kept these in case we had the need for heavy coats but we haven’t done so in five years. If we do have a need in the future we will pick some up cheaply at the thrift store.
Sunday – Clothes that although I still like the style of and feel good in rarely get used because they don’t fit in with my lifestyle these days. There is no point in taking up space in my closet if they aren’t being used.
Good luck and happy decluttering
Today’s Declutter Item
Well, just about everyone guessed almost correctly for the “What an I” quiz on Saturday. It was a New York Yankees sun visor. This was a pile of baseball items my kids were willing to part with that I have since sold to a friend I work with at the thrift shop.
Something I Am Grateful For Today
The wonderful three weeks we just spent in the USA. It was a special treat to meet both Cindy, my wonderful Wednesday contributor (and her family) and Willow, one of my long time readers/commenters.
