Mini Mission Monday ~ This and that

mini-logoMini 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.

I have been informed that my Mother-in-law has been following my mini missions so this weeks missions have her in mind. I could be way off base because she has decluttered so much already but I am going to make some guesses as to what missions would work well for her. I hope they work well for all my readers too. So here goes.

Monday – Declutter a secondhand item that you purchased but haven’t really found a use for yet.

Tuesday – Declutter 5 craft items.

Wednesday – Choose ten items to donate to a charity of your choice and take them there this week.

Thursday – Donate some old toys that your children or grandchildren have long grown out of.

Friday – Declutter a gift you have never used but kept because a loved one gave it to you.

Saturday – Declutter some excess items from your or your partner’s wardrobe.

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
