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.
So this week theÂ theme for our mini missions is “In The Way.” I am sure we all haveÂ clutter that is getting in the way of life. Use these mission to identify a few and get them our of the way. It never ceases to amaze me how a few little tweaks can make such a large effect on efficiency.
Monday – Declutter something that is in the way, resulting in adding an unwanted degree of difficulty whenÂ housecleaning.
Tuesday – Declutter something that is in the way making it difficult to shut a cupboard or drawer.
Wednesday – Declutter something that is constantly in the way when you are trying to get to something else more useful to you.
Thursday – Declutter a few of something that you have too many off causing decision making to get in the way of getting ready for the day. Like clothes, cosmetics, perfume, shoes, accessories…
Friday – Declutter something that is getting in the way of your happiness. Perhaps some obligation clutter.
Saturday – Rearrange a small area of your home where disorganisation is getting in the way of doing things efficiently. Perhaps you will find something to declutter in the process. Perhaps a shelf in your pantry or linen closet, a drawer in your kitchen, wardrobe or desk…
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.
Random Acts of MiscellaneousÂ Kindness
(Little thoughtful acts for no reason but to make a complete strangers life a little easier.)
Let a random strangerÂ go ahead of you at the register in a shop if you aren’t in a hurry or if they only have a couple of items to pay for when you have several.
