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.
How many times have you kept something because you thought you might need it someday. Have you ever stopped to think maybe you never needed it in the first place. If it is an item that you might only need someday then chances are, if it is an item that only makes a job easier but you could manage without it ,then it isn’t worth the space it is taking up. So lets see what we can find this week that you really won’t need someday.
Monday – Declutter a kitchen gadget that you use rarely but could easily manage without.
Tuesday – Declutter a tool from the garage or shed that is use too rarely to allow to clutter up the space.
Wednesday – Declutter an item of clothing that is used rarely if ever.
Thursday – Declutter excess sheet and towels that would only be needed should you house a much larger number of people than maybe even your house wouldÂ allow comfortably.
Friday – Declutter crockery and cutlery that would only be required under the same circumstances as the Thursday mission.
Saturday – Declutter medication from your cabinet that you bought to have on handÂ when you needed them but now are out of date.
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
