Day 15 of 15/15 (15 days of 15-minute tasks)
Hooray! Day 15! While 15 minutes isn't a lot of time, I hope you noticed that at the end of these brief decluttering sessions, you felt a sense of accomplishment. There will always be another project to tackle, but you can handle each one a small step at a time.
Today, grab an empty bin or laundry basket and walk through a room picking up the things that belong in other rooms. Spend 5 or 6 minutes gathering items (you may be able to get through a few rooms in this time) and the rest of the time putting them away … or, at least, placing the items in the room where they belong.
Items that aren’t in the proper place clutter the space where they were left. You aren’t getting rid of these items but moving them to their home.
