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 weeks missions reflect the kinds of thing that I have decluttered in the last week. Lets see if you can find some similar items to declutter.
Monday – Declutter a small piece of furniture or a storage container. I decluttered two bedside tables that had been storing DVDs.
Tuesday – Declutter some digital media, CDs, DVDs, CDRoms, old VHS tapes… . Due to the bedside table declutter some DVDs also were decluttered.
Wednesday – Declutter and item of clothing. I decluttered a dress, not because I wanted to it simply worn out. Split down the back worn out and not worth repairing because the fabric had worn so thin.
Thursday – Declutter an item of jewellery. I decluttered a necklace that I had put aside to deconstruct for craft purposes but never have.
Friday – Declutter a kitchen utensil or two. I decluttered two utensil holdersÂ that hadÂ served me well in the past.Â I’d kept them in the back of a cupboard for a while “just in case” but am now satisfied that I have no further need for them.
Saturday – Declutter a couple of toys. I let go ofÂ twoÂ largish plastic animals, once again kept for craft purposes. Due to the reshuffle that inspired the decluttering of the bedside tables someÂ things had to beÂ fitted in elsewhere. The obvious choice to look and use was my craft storage area, so some things had to go.
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
