Focus Unclutter Assignment:
Focus on uncluttering magazines! Here’s a new rule: Once you are finished with a magazine, remove the pages you like and store them in a binder, file folder, or electronically. Put the rest of the magazine in the recycle bin.

U-Choose Unclutter Assignment:
Pick an area each day this week to declutter. It can be a drawer, a closet, or a room–e.g. the dining room. Choose a day and time. Make your intentions to please Allah. Then set a timer for 15 minutes and get to work.

— DeCluttering & Cleaning Tips

  • make your intentions to please Allah
  • schedule time to clean; put it in your planner, calendar, or mobile device
  • spend 15 minutes at a time then take a break
  • use this Online-Stopwatch (click on Count Down) if you don’t have a kitchen timer
  • toss trash items into a plastic grocery store bag or trash bag

As you unclutter, sort items into: trash and “give away”. Toss trash into a plastic store bag or trash bag. Put “give away” items in a box or plastic bin. Label and find a handy place to keep it for now.
