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.
Regardless of how much of an expert one things they have become at keeping the clutter at bay there are always things that build up when you aren’t looking. Little things mostly but it is clutter nonetheless and as we all know so much of our clutter is made up of little bits and pieces. These things also build up while you are in full swing trying to get rid of the bulk of your clutter. Therefore it is best to keep a close eye on the little devils. So this week we will find some of them to declutter.
Monday – Declutter receipts you have kept for warranty or return purposes that are now past their returnÂ by date.
Tuesday – Declutter small clothing itemsÂ that you kept just in case when you last purchased new ones. ~ Underwear, socks, t-shirts etc.
Wednesday – Declutter items you have kept for reuse that are building up. Plastic bags, jars, boxes…
Thursday – Check forÂ items in your pantry orÂ refrigerator that built up but need using up.
Friday -Â For the book lovers ~ Keep your collection in check by decluttering a couple of less loved books.
Saturday – IdentifyÂ your own unique build-up situation and unclutter some of it. Mine is craft and I’m working on it constantly.
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
