I’ve had other fires to attend to already this week

so haven’t chimed in much on this thread. But I’ve been watching and thinking “hmm, this 15-minutes-a-day stuff might work nicely here too. And Kathy you’re right. It’s very similar to the “change the mindset” involved with Oli. Once that habit is formed, and that mind-set has shifted, it’s easier to stay with it forever. I hate to take on yet another “new thing” this year already, but this one seems pretty worthy. And we certainly need it. Sigh. Where to spend my 15 minutes today?

I am on Day 2/365 of 15 min a day decluttering

Every morning between shuttling kids I have about 20-25 minutes. I used to spend it checking email. I’ve decided I’m going to spend it decluttering, and started with the home “office.”

I have let it go so long that you can barely tell I’ve made a dent, but I’ve gotten rid of a bag of trash, disposed of last year’s unnecessary mail and cleared a path so you can actually walk through it.

More importantly, I’m starting a habit and getting out from under the burden of STUFF just like I am developing the habit of getting out from under the burden of debt.
