Mini Mission Monday ~ When your clutter is a bother to others

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. Sorry folks I am late yet again. We have had a visitor and some more baby sitting due to a funeral of someone gone too young, and also getting ready for our departure tomorrow. No excuse is good enough for being so slack of late though and I apologise for that. Maybe this big break is just what I Continue reading

Getting the stuff out of your home

It has come to my attention, both through comments on my blog and through real life experience, that one of the issues people have with their clutter, once they finally decide to be rid of it, is getting it out of their homes. Clutter gets rounded up then put aside in the corner of a room or storage space and they build up and hang out there for, what seems like, forever. One reason is a lack of time, another a lack of knowing exactly what to do with it, while a lack of transport to get it to a thrift shop can also be a deterrent. Some folks spend too much time trying to find the perfect new Continue reading

You just never know.

Firstly I would just like to apologise for my recent extended absence from the blog this month. Unfortunately my mother took ill and I rushed off interstate to visit her in hospital and to take care of my dad while she couldn't. After she returned home from hospital it took a while for her to sufficiently recover enough for me to feel comfortable about leaving for home. Add that to the three week vacation immediately after Christmas and I have spent only about two weeks in my own home so far this year. With an eight week trip to New Zealand planned for not too far in the future I suppose I Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Overloaded

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. It is evident, in any home I spend more than a little time in, that there are a number of spaces that get the most cluttered. They seem to be the same ones no matter whose home it is. And there overloaded spaces become inefficient due to having to shuffle things around to get to what one needs. Continue reading

Cascade Cleaning

I made a mistake in my sudoku while having my morning cup of tea and needed my correction pen. One thing led to another resulting in a tidy bedside table and kitchen bench among other small achievements. Here is what transpired... I went to the bedroom to get the correction pen from my bedside table. There I found I'd left the floss last night, so I put it away. On the bedside table there was also last night's completed torn out page from my sudoku magazine. There was also a used tissue, and a white gel pen. So I took all four items to the kitchen where I put the trash in the bin Continue reading

Home again and on with the decluttering.

Hi folks, well all good things must come to and end and my vacation is one of those things. We had a lovely time in Japan but it is always nice to be home again. And now it is back to the decluttering. We arrived in Japan not long after Christmas and departed in mid January, and what a crazy time it is over there at that time of year. There are lots of New Year celebrations that, among other traditions, seem to involve the purchasing and, I assume, consumption of sweets. I have witnessed the shopping frenzy that goes on in Australia and the USA at this time of year but nothing compares to Continue reading
