What you can achieve in 5 minutes will depend on the size of your various collections.
Step 1: Take a large box (or bag) to your bookshelves, or wherever you store your library. Moving quickly from top left to bottom right, put into the box:
Books you've read and won't re-read
Unread books you're never likely to read
Books that contain out-of-date information (that means most reference books, encyclopedias, etc)
Old textbooks - unless you graduated, like, this decade
Binders of seminar/course info (unless you really believe you'll refer to them)
Archived magazines (do you ever look back at them?)
Manuals for software or computers you no longer use
Software CDs for programs you no longer use
Computer games the kids (or you) have outgrown
CDs you no longer listen to
CDs ripped to your iPod and backed up on your computer (if you only want the CD booklet, just keep that)
DVDs you've seen and won't re-watch
DVDs the kids have outgrown
Unseen DVDs you're never likely to watch
Photo albums you never look at
Photo albums that have negative memories
Video or audio cassettes if you no longer have players for them.
In today's 5 minutes we're going to freshen up your crockery and glasswareThis one looked fun and was fun!
Step 4: If you need to replace any items, make a note on your shopping list.A) Because its that easy to simply run and buy more kitchen stuff *insert eyeroll* not to mention, ethically bad for the enviroment and B) Thats the reason WHY I have Mismatched Items - ROFL
And you're done!The 'Got an Extra 5 Minutes?' bit was a tad puzzling.
Decide to abandon your 'special occasion' stash.
If you have glasses, crockery or other items you only use for special occasions, consider abandoning this idea.
If the items are too delicate or not your taste, perhaps you could donate them?
If they're nice and usable, perhaps you could integrate them with your everyday stuff and get pleasure out of them more regularly? You'll also save yourself the trouble of packing them away after every use.
- In today's 5 minutes we're going to organize your noticeboard or household information area.As I have recently already done this, all that was required was a clean up and reshuffle of the current bills to the front and the older bills (and the unpaid ones - teehee) put away in the To Be Filed Box.
From the remaining items, put anything you really want to keep (really?) in a memory boxAs for everything else – chuck it (recycle, shred - do your bit people!!)
