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.
I spent a few days, yet again, last week helping someone move house. As a result I am once again writing a set of missions that reflect the various groups of items in homes that tend to accumulate and expand over time. It is oftenÂ the same kinds of items in every home that are the objects ofÂ this problem. And that is all the more reason to harp on about it a bit. Because let me tell you, all that accumulation makes for a lot of unnecessary waste of timeÂ and cause ofÂ stress at an already very stressful time. I will elaborate on that in a post later in the week. So lets get started with our missions.
Monday – Declutter a fewÂ excess kitchen items. Crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, plastic containers, gadgets…
Tuesday – Declutter pantry ingredients that you never or rarely use and vow to keep them to a minimum in the future.
Wednesday – Declutter or use up some liquids that are sitting unused. That might be toiletries, cleaners, paint or other chemicals that were once used but then set aside wasting space and spoiling.
Thursday – Declutter someÂ nick nacks or novelty items that have lost their appeal.
Friday – Declutter some outdoor items ~ plant pots, timber, pet toys etc ~ littering up the yard.
Saturday – Declutter some unnecessary items cluttering up your garage. Boxes, leisure equipment, tools, car parts, rejects from inside the house…
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
