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 week’s missions are unrelated, aside from all intended to achieve less clutter in your home. So use your imagination and see if you can find something for each mission.
Monday – Declutter something you only keep because you paid a lot for it.
Tuesday – Declutter something that you keep as a backup for something else but isn’t expensive to replace.
Wednesday – Â Return something that belongs to someone else.
Thursday – Declutter something from your past that doesn’t add any value to your life now.
Friday – Declutter something that you just haven’t used in a long time. Perhaps some sort of craft item that you imagined you could create something wonderful with but haven’t. Or perhaps a kitchen item that never was overly useful.
Saturday – Declutter something you received for free that isn’t beautiful or useful to you.
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
Don’t leave lights on when rooms are unoccupied. It takes but a flick of a switch to achieve illumination and you’ll cope in the dark until that can be achieved.
It matters not how fast I go, I hurry faster when Iâ€™m slow
