Mini Mission Monday ~ One room

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 want you to choose a room in your home that has a clutter issue, and this room is going to be the focus of your mini missions this week. Make a vow to yourself that you are not going to add any extra clutter to this room. Anything you use from or in it during the week you are going to Continue reading

From the archives ~ The departure point

Today I have brought this little gem out of the archives to share with you. It may be an oldie but it is still a goodie. The departure point, the staging area, the sorting space... whatever you want to call it, having one certainly makes decluttering more organised. This is the space where your chosen ones, that is the items you want to get rid of are moved to prior to their final departure from your home. This makes the initial decision making precess easier without the complication of dealing with an immediate removal. The system works like this... Chose an item you no longer which Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Memorabilia

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 it is time again to go through those memorabilia items. We all have memorabilia items that we wouldn't want to part with and that is perfectly fine. But most of us also have similar items that we only keep out of habit because tradition dictates that we should view these things as Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Colour

It takes the guess work out of decluttering and makes it easy and "fun" for you to achieve some quick decluttering. Everyone enjoyed it the last time I had a set of mini missions based on colour, so I thought I would do that again this week. I have chosen a colour for each day and all you have to do is find something to declutter that is that colour. This is a very visual set of missions so that makes it quite Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Nooks & Crannies

It takes the guess work out of decluttering and makes it easy and "fun" for you to achieve some quick decluttering. This week, for our mini missions, we are going to visit little nooks and crannies around the house which may have, up until now, remained untouched by human hands, or the vacuum cleaner for that matter, during our previous decluttering efforts. I will list seven places I have thought of below, Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Containers

The idea behind this set of mini mission and all the great examples was brought to you by Peggy. Great and original idea Peggy, thank you. As you can guess by the title your mission this week is to declutter containers of all sorts. Bonus points for declutter the stuff in the container as Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Next to useless

It takes the guess work out of decluttering and makes it easy and "fun" for you to achieve some quick decluttering. So the idea behind this week's mini missions title is to have you getting rid of some stuff in your home that is next to useless to you. The "I might need it one day!" or the "I only use it maybe once a year but it is still useful!" .... kind of objects or items you avoid using for one reason or Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ In The Way

It takes the guess work out of decluttering and makes it easy and "fun" for you to achieve some quick decluttering. So this week the theme for our mini missions is "In The Way." I am sure we all have clutter that is getting in the way of life. Use these mission to identify a few and get them our of the way. It never ceases to amaze me how a few little tweaks can make such a large effect on efficiency. Monday Continue reading

The key to action is enjoyment

I received a comment from Bernadette on the 365 Less Things Facebook page this week that said... "I enjoy getting rid of things. It is so liberating. Got rid of a bunch of old photos today."  And that is a great example of the key to getting anything done, which is enjoying the process. If you can get yourself to that point, with any challenge, then how can you fail. After all, who won't do whatever they can to find some time in their day to do the things they enjoy doing. I have always enjoyed my decluttering which was what made it such a success for me. Even when it also required Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Easter

It takes the guess work out of decluttering and makes it easy and "fun" for you to achieve some quick decluttering. As I write this it is Easter Sunday so I thought I might Easter use that as todays theme for our mini missions. I will have to stretch the imagination to come up with descriptions of clutter that work in with the categories I have chosen. Each category is an Easter symbol of sorts. Good luck and Continue reading
