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.
Monday is here again, where do the weeks go? And as time flies the seasons change and thatÂ is a good time for decluttering. It has got decidedly cooler here at my end of the world and that means pack away the Summer clothes and out with the clothes for cooler climate. And time to let go of the clothes and things that at seasons end are looking a little shabby or weren’t used enough to warrant keeping. So lets see if I can come up with some good end of season mini missions.
Monday – Declutter those clothing items that didn’t get used through the closingÂ season and aren’t useful for the next.
Tuesday – Declutter any clothes from the closing season that have gotten to shabby to wear.
Wednesday – Declutter any season specific shoes that didn’t get used last season or aren’t likely to be used for the next or when the closing season returns next year.
Thursday – IdentifyÂ and start a use it up challenge on ingredients that are less likely to be used during the next season.
Friday – Declutter someÂ toys, sporting or recreation equipment that is unlikely to be used again next season or when the closing season returns.
Saturday – Do a quick perusal of yourÂ outdoor area and declutter a few things that won’t be used again after this season comes to a close.
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
