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 the mini missions are inspired by a Facebook post by a friend of my daughter. She had posted some clothing items for sale that still had the tags on. I am obviously not an avid shopper because when I do buyÂ a new item of clothing I am excited to wear it and do so quite quickly. That isn’t to say that occasionally I’ll buy something that, after wearing for a few times, turns out to be uncomfortable, falls out of shape or some other thing that deems it useless and has to be decluttered or returned to the store. And that is always a disappointment. Anyway here are you missions for today…
Monday – Declutter something you have never worn or will likely never wear again.
Tuesday -Â Declutter something you’ll never read again.
Wednesday -Â Declutter something you have never really liked.
Thursday -Â Declutter something you have never used enough to warrant wasting the space on.
Friday -Â Declutter something you have never enjoyed as much as you thought you would.
Saturday -Â Declutter something you have never felt comfortable in/with/about.
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.
