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.
Sometimes my mini mission get a bit bigger than little. Sometimes they sound easier in print than they are in reality. So this week I am going to keep them simple to understand and simple to carry out. No thinking and not much effort involved.
Monday – Declutter a drawer anywhere in your house.
Tuesday – Declutter a small section of a cupboard anywhere in your home.
Wednesday – Declutter one thing that you know hasn’t been used in a very long time that really isn’t necessary.
Thursday – Declutter a clothing or footwear item.
Friday – Declutter something your kids have grown out of, physically or intellectually. If you don’t have children declutter and old souvenir or home décor item.
Saturday – Declutter one of a category that you know you have too many off. Kitchen items, toiletries, books, magazines, handbags, DVDs or CDs, fashion accessories, jewellery pieces…
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
If you make coffee or tea after a meal boil a little extra water to soak the baked on food from the bottoms of pans. This saves having to run the hot water until it is warm enough for soaking. Adding a little bicarb soda will also make clean up easier.
It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when I’m slow
