Day 62: Decluttering Mindfully

As I’m such a busy bee, I tend to leave things by the back door to deal with when I get time. Some days I get time and some days I don’t.

An identified clutter habit area

Other family members may have added to this pile, although looking at the items they do all look like things that I have randomly placed there.

When I got in from work this evening, I spent twenty minutes or so doing the usual Monday night bins routine followed by dealing with all items by the back door until it was completely clear.

Clear space

So, I think I’ve identified another clutter habit area. This will now be another ‘daily checkpoint’ like the ottoman in my bedroom that I wrote about yesterday.

Being mindful of clutter

If I can mindfully keep these two areas clear, I will feel like I’m moving forward. I shall also be looking for other habits that can easily be resolved by focusing on them daily.

So much to do… but it’s all good stuff!

Until tomorrow…

  1. Clutter is in itself mindless, so if you pick up something think about where it should go and take care of it then if possible. Try not to handle items 2 or 3 times.

  2. Thank you, I will try
