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 we are going to do some digital decluttering. Some purely digital some in a more tangible form. You will understand what I mean as you read the daily missions.
Monday â€“ Today declutter any DVDs that you no long enjoy to watch or really donâ€™t watch enough to warrant keeping. Perhaps also ones your children have grown out of. This would be an example of tangible digital clutter.
Tuesday â€“ Today declutter some purely digital clutter. Perhaps clean out your email inbox, sent box and/or your email trash folder.
Wednesday â€“ Declutter CDs that you no longer listen to and perhaps are evenÂ embarrassedÂ you ever owned.
Thursday â€“ Take a look at your photo folders and delete poor quality pics or multiples of the same thing. One of them must be the best and there is not need to keep the rest.
Friday â€“ Declutter old computer games that you or your children haveÂ tired of or grown too old for.
Saturday â€“ Have a look through the folders on your computer that hold text documents. I bet there are many that are no longerÂ relevant.
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
