Key #3 â€“ Get the entire household on board
I know it isnâ€™t always easy to accomplish this one because, lets face it, you have no control over it what so ever. If you canâ€™t verbally convince the other members of your household to comply maybe you can entice them with your success. Once they see how much more organised your spaces are and how happy it makes you, they may be more inclined to join in. When you tell them about your eBay successes and how your bank account is growing because of your retail restraint they may be convinced.
Today’s Mini Mission
Declutter your socks and underwear drawers ~ I don’t know about you but I tend to wear, wash and put these items back over and over and then when things start to wear out I avoid them and then they just languish in the drawer for months. So every now and again I do a little declutter. Some items I might replace but only if I don’t already have too many.
Today’s Declutter Item
I was given these beads by my mother but twelve months later I had not used them for a project. In my bid to reduce my craft space these were one of the things donated to the thrift shop.
Eco Tip For The Day
Use a microfibre mop to clean your floors. All you need is a little water, no harmful chemicals. Even green cleaners have to be manufactured so why use them if you don’t need to.
