Readers' Clutter Hacks: Five-Minute Clutter Relief
You suggested 10-minute clutter relief. I do it in five- minute spurts. Five-minute projects are clutter clearing that you can do while you're waiting on hold, waiting at appointments, waiting for the repairman, waiting for the meeting, waiting for the bus…well, you get the idea.
My list ranges from cleaning out my wallet and purse to sorting though magazines on the bedside table. I also file papers, do a quick check of e-mail, wipe off my computer screen and keyboard, and throw a load of laundry in the washer.
There is also emptying trash cans, throwing out UFOs from the refrigerator, watering the plants, wiping down the bathroom counters and sinks, picking up the dog toys and putting them in his basket, etc. (Can you tell I work at home)?
You'll be surprised how much you can get done in these 5 minute sessions. Give it a try!
