Declutter Lesson Number 1 is the Five Minute Rule.
It’s so super easy and so effective you can’t not do it.
As with most of the Decluttering projects you will need a clip board, paper and pen.
How to do it?
Go around the house and compile a list of the niggly little decluttering jobs that need to be done that don’t involve going out of the house.
For example – sorting through old keys, collecting coins and putting them into one place, sorting through DVDs etc. etc.
Every time you have a spare 5 minutes do one of the jobs or start to do it. The Five Minute Rule.
I do this if I’m waiting for my food to cook or between adverts.
It’s so simple and super effective and I’ve got so much done already.
I also use the Five Minute Rule to assess if I should carry out a chore now or put it off until later. The rule is if I can do it within 5 minutes I do it there and then.
For example, emptying the dish washer, taking the rubbish out.
So as soon as I notice a chore that needs to be done, I ask myself, will this take less than 5 minutes? If yes I have to do it. If no it waits.
Sounds obvious, but it’s helped me immensely.
