Are you ready to become more of a minimalist today?
1 // Clean out your purse [or, if a gentleman, wallet]
Take everything out of your purse. Toss what is not needed, such as old receipts. Analyze what is left, and decide what deserves a space in your purse.
Put these things back in your purse organized so that you know exactly where each thing is. Do not allow your purse to become the black whole it likes to be!
2 // Clean out your car
If it is not a duster, car insurance or registration ticket, or owners manual; remove it. Once everything is removed, wipe down the inside of the car.
If there are certain things you need to put back in place, such as a car organizer or car seat, do that now. Everything else goes back inside the home where it belongs.
3 // Clear off all counter tops & only add back what is absolutely necessary
Take everything off your counter tops and clean them. Replace what you have to keep on your counter tops, such as a microwave or coffee maker.
Sort through everything that remains and make decisions on what to do with it. You do not need decorations on your counter tops, as this will only encourage clutter.
4 // Cleaning Spree
Allow yourself 10-15 minutes to go through each room and grab everything that does not belong and return to its designated home.
5 // Sort through your mail pile
Yes, I can see into your home, and yes I can see your mail is piling up in a beautiful unorganized pile! [I used to be the same way!]
Sort into two stacks: important mail and junk mail. Recycle the junk mail, and deal with the important mail accordingly.
