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.
Most clutter is annoying, mostly in a subtle way that is just niggling in the background. However some clutter is more annoying. So let us work on that more annoying clutter today. Hopefully in the attempt we will all identify some items that we will feel much better for getting rid of. So lets begin.
Monday – Declutter some items from an overcrowded area. Perhaps the utensil drawer, office desk drawer, bathroom cabinet, sock drawer, linen closet… . Being about to use these areas with the hassle of overflow will make your life that little more pleasant.
Tuesday – Declutter an item that is annoying because you just don’t like it. Perhaps an unwanted gift, something visually unappealing, or just something you lost interest in a long time ago.
Wednesday – Declutter something that is annoyingly inefficient, such as any items that don’t work properly or doesn’t do a good job of what it’s purpose is. Perhaps a kitchen gadget that isn’t time saving, an electronic item that has lost some of its function…
Thursday – Declutter an item of clothing that is annoyingly ill fitting.
Friday – Declutter something that may be causing you, or someone else in the household an allergy problem. Dust collectors would be a prime target for this mini mission, such as trinkets, fabric dÃ©cor items, old rugs, excessive cushions…
Saturday – Declutter something left behind by a previous member of the household. Check if they want it back and give them a deadline as to when it needs to be collected or out it goes.
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
