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 it is time again to go through thoseÂ memorabilia items. We all have memorabilia items that we wouldn’t want to part with and that is perfectly fine. But most of us also have similar items that we only keep out of habit because tradition dictates that we should view these things as important. But the truth is if they mean little to us why burden ourselves with them.
Monday â€“ Declutter those old greetingÂ cards from people who no longer mean anything to you or celebrate occasions that hold little significance.
Tuesday â€“ Â Declutter a family heirloom you possibly never really liked. Give it to another member of the family who enjoys preserving the family history.
Wednesday â€“Declutter a souvenir.
Thursday â€“Declutter a childhood or baby item of you or your children that doesn’t hold as much significance to you as it once did.
Friday â€“Declutter a diary or journal that is so embarrassing that you wouldn’t want it toÂ become part of your family history.
Saturday â€“Declutter aÂ memento that is boxed away somewhere where you rarely see it and don’t care enough to visit it often.
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.)
If you have an act that you think would be kind please share it with me via my contact page so I can share it with your fellow readers.Â Here is an idea for an act of kindness from a reader name Jean.
People enjoy finding money, it is sweet to drop a coin where children might walk and find it, or even a dollar for older folks. Everyone feels lucky when they find money, even a very small amount.
