Mini Mission ~ Wednesday 4OCT2017

Declutter, or start a use-it-up mission on, something that you constantly pass over to use a similar item instead. This might be a toiletry item such as a hair product, hand cream, body wash, purfume etc. Or maybe an ingredient in your kitchen, or a crafting medium, or even something as simple as a pen you don't like the flow of... I am sure you can think of such an item. I am going to set myself a challenge to use up some of the cardstocks in my craft stash that I never use. And maybe some embellishments too. To be honest, I suppose, I do this all the time because my whole craft stash is a Continue reading

Mini Mission ~ Tuesday 3OCT2017

Declutter something that requires too much maintenance than it is worth. Perhaps an item of clothing that requires dry-cleaning. Maybe a collection of knickknacks that you are tired of dusting. Or maybe some silly kitchen gadget that you spend more time, digging out of the back on the cupboard and the cleanup after use, than the time you save by using it. Continue reading

Mini Mission ~ Monday 2OCT2017

Declutter one of those obligation items. You know the ones, things you keep out of obligation. Maybe someone gifted it to you and that is the only reason you keep it. Maybe an item someone made for you, or anything that you keep because you feel you should regardless of the fact that you no longer want it. Continue reading

Declutter yet another item from your kitchen that is never or seldom used. There are so many items in most kitchens so there is usually something among them that can be decluttered. Continue reading

Mini Mission – Thursday 28Sep2017

Declutter an item from the season you have, or are still moving out of. Winter for us in the South and Summer for those in the North. It could be a clothing item or anything related to that season that you did not use this time around and doubt you will ever use in the future. Continue reading

Declutter some sort of carrying equipment. Perhaps on suitcase, backpack, handbag, tote... that you no longer favour. Continue reading

Mini Mission ~ Friday 22Sep2017

Declutter at least one textile item. This could be clothing, linens, towels, rugs, cushions, curtains... and the list goes on. I am continually doing a use it up challenge on yarn by knitting socks for anyone among my family or friends that would like them. Admittedly I am also buying yarn for such projects too but it keeps me amused and I refuse to allow my yarn stash to take up more than one small drawer. Some of my hand knitted socks are made purely from leftovers which helps clear out the drawer and makes for some interesting socks.   Continue reading

Mini Mission ~ Thursday 21Sep2017

Declutter something with type. This could be a book, old newspapers or magazines, paperwork you have been ignoring, those old university papers that are now so out of date that they really are of no use to you, or maybe use up some old notepaper by writing an old fashioned letter to a loved one. I am sure we can all easily find something to fit this category. Continue reading
