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.
Hello, it’s Monday again and we all know what that means. And what can we take care of with our mini missions this week.Â I think we might put a number on this weeks missions, and that number is five. Of course you can go over or under five if you discover you find you haveÂ fewer or more of an item when you check. But the more the better I always say. So go in search of the items I have mentioned below and see if you can come up with any. My husband took care of the cables on the weekend. We have no magazines, very few books and no excess of any of the other things listed. So it looks like I am going to have an easy week. How will you fare.
Monday – Declutter fiveÂ electrical cables that seem to multiply when you aren’t looking.
Tuesday – Declutter five food items that have been in your pantry for a while by making meals out of them this week.
Wednesday – Declutter five magazines that you hadÂ savedÂ to reference later but so have never have.
Thursday – Declutter five grooming items. Excess razor handles, unused hair brushes, worn out nail files, products…
Friday – Declutter five books from that over full bookcase.
Saturday – Declutter five dust collectors that you aren’t in love with.
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
