Mini Mission Monday ~ Ten minutes a day

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 seems to have been a while since I focused on the philosophy behind the 365 Less Things approach. I tend to take it for granted that we all know what that is, and we just get on with it. However this week that is going to be the theme for my posts. Even though my home contents Continue reading

The Social Networking/Surfing Dilemma by Deb J

The Social Networking/Surfing Dilemma A Guest Post by Deb J Even though I only check my email and Facebook 3 times a day, I am finding I spend more time than I would like on both.  I don’t spend much time “surfing the net.”  Texting is not a problem because I only use my cell phone for emergencies.  The emails are few and mostly have to do with business type things.  I have been able to get my name off most email lists other than for those like my doctors, Mom’s doctors, our bank, and my credit card. I really do not have a huge number of people I keep up with on Facebook, yet I find it Continue reading

The endless to-do list

Isn't it baffling that no matter how much you reduce your belongings and simplify your life, there still seems to always be an endless to-do list. I think it is highly possible, at least in my case, that while I am un-complicating one area of my life I am filling that void with something else. Actually as I write this, I am sure I published a post on this very subject not so long back. Nevertheless I am going to prattle on about it again today. If for no other reason than the fact that I obviously didn't listen to my own advice the last time.  Sometimes even the things we enjoy in life can Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Too much to move

It takes the guess work out of decluttering and makes it easy and "fun" for you to achieve some quick decluttering.

Mini Mission Monday ~ Why

Other than that we are sick of the clutter. This weeks missions are all about reasons for letting stuff go. So lets get started. Monday - Let something go that you have more than enough of. Tuesday - Let something go that Continue reading

See space. Fill that space … Not! by Nicole V

By Nicole V We said goodbye to an old friend yesterday. It was a hi-fi system that had served us faithfully for many years. I was with my then-boyfriend (now husband) when he purchased it and – as it was large and really heavy – I remember us taking a cab back to his place and watching him set it up in his room. After we got married, it moved with us to 3 different homes and brought us countless hours of enjoyment and relaxation (thank you, Old Faithful!). After working tirelessly for so long, it finally gave up the ghost and my husband dismantled it and it left our home soon after – I’m Continue reading

Mini Mission Monday ~ Three months or longer

It takes the guess work out of decluttering and makes it easy and "fun" for you to achieve some quick decluttering. I think the title certainly gives away the theme of this week's mini missions. We are going to search areas of our house for things that haven't been used in three months. Then hopefully we can convince ourselves to let them go. Monday - We'll make today easy. Find something in your kitchen that Continue reading
