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.
Some items in our homes are plentiful and there is usually some among them that just aren’t necessary to keep. This weeks missions are designed to weed out those least used items from an otherwise useful bunch. Let’s see how honest you can be at letting go of the least useful of these groups.
Monday – Take out the three least used utensils in your kitchen. Really think why you bother to keep them. Declutter the least used item.
Tuesday – Take a look in your closet. Take out the three least used items of clothing. Declutter the least likely ever to be used again.
Wednesday – Take out yourÂ three least comfortable pairs shoes. Declutter the pair that you are least likely to wear.
Thursday – Choose three books from your book collection. Declutter the one least likely to be reread.
Friday – Retrieve the three least likely to be used linen items ftom your linen closet. Declutter the one of those that is used the least.
Saturday – Choose three items among your craft supplies. Be that tools or materials. Declutter the least likely ever to be used again.
Sunday -Â Sunday is reserved for contemplating one particular item, of your choice that is proving difficult for you to declutter. Whether that be for sentimental reasons, practical reasons, because the task is laborious or simply unpleasant, or because the items removal requires the cooperation of another person. That last category may mean that the item belongs to someone else who has to give their approval, it could also mean there is a joint decision to be made or it could mean that the task of removing it requires assistance from someone else. There is no need to act on this contemplation immediately, it is more about formulating a plan to act upon or simplyÂ making a decisionÂ one way or another.
Good luck and happy decluttering
Eco Tip for the Day
Share a meal at a cafe or restaurant. Large portions are best shared. For your waistline and for environmental sustainability.
It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when Iâ€™m slow
