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.
Just for something different, as I have never done this before, this week’s mini missions are based on what me and my family have been decluttering. This includes children and in-laws. It is always exciting to see those you love embracing int the idea of living with less. So here goes.
Monday – Declutter of CDs or DVDs. My son was doing this last week.
Tuesday – Declutter some craft supplies. Easy to guess who was doing this, me of course.
Wednesday – Declutter some items of jewellery you don’t like so much. My mother-in-law was doing this.
Thursday – Declutter some clutter in your home that once was someone else’s clutter. The jewellery mentioned above wasÂ just such clutter.
Friday – Declutter some wall art or empty picture frames you have never use. Another thing my son let go of last week.
Saturday – Declutter something you have been unsuccessfully been trying to sell. I did this with some items that have lingered too long in the art space where I sell my handmade cards.
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
