Mini Mission ~ Monday 18Sep2017

Declutter something that is metallic, either in colour or construction. It shouldn’t be too hard to spot such items at a quick glance and then all you have to do is decide whether you wish to declutter them or not. The kitchen drawers might be a good place to start.

  1. Hum! I’m stuck on this one. I’m not sure I have anything right now to declutter that is metallic.

    • Deb, you are SOOOooooooo decluttered now!!! You put us all to shame!!! Happy for you!

      • Brenda, we are all at different point in the decluttering game. Don’t feel put to shame. My parents weren’t hoarders just keepers. I grew up a declutterer because I couldn’t stand all the stuff even though neatly put away. Thag made it easier for me.

  2. I am decluttering a knife, a wire cup and saucer display rack , and one of my pretty aluminum compotes with lid, among other things.

  3. I decluttered a stained glass cross that is fashioned with metal framework.

  4. I decluttered a large, oval, gold-coloured basket and a bunch of metal s-hooks.

  5. I trashed 5 computer DVDs

    • Good reminder Pat…I still have a stack of old CD’s/DVD’s from work. I went through them a few years ago and trashed a stack, but I’m guessing I’d be willing to part with more now.

  6. Since I used the DVDs for the previous one I had to work at this one!

    Found a 3 ring binder full of Tupperware party ideas. The 3 rings are metallic. Going to a friend of a friend who recently became a Tupperware consultant. Hopefully some of these will be new to her.

  7. DVD’s, great idea! We are moving in 3 months & I’m packing up things we can live without for the time being. There are 2 big baskets full of DVD’s so I will go through them all & pack some & put the rest in the donation pile.

  8. I’m decluttering an old hose spray nozzle that we found buried in the yard. A friend found it with his metal detector while looking for my DH’s missing wedding ring. I have no idea why we kept the spray nozzle – it leaks! BTW, we found the wedding ring while planting tomatoes several months later.

  9. I am getting up my nerve to visit the coin dealer tomorrow to sell our coin collection. It was sat in the out pile for years!

  10. Pat, you’re really on a roll…encouraging!!

    • My plan is to add items to any of the past 5 days of Colleens’ postings. I will list amount item and location – a habit from the past 2 years of the Declutter game!

  11. Thanks Deanna – with my son away at college I have more free time.

    3 aluminum foil cookie trays back to my mother – she is the baker not me

  12. 6 CD’s with cases from closet.
