Holiday Clean Up Missions

Holiday Clean Up Missions

HOLIDAY CLEAN-UP MISSION #1

The holidays are nearly over and our thoughts begin to turn to how to reclaim our homes LOL. For the next few days, I will be sending out Holiday Clean Up Missions. Our goal is to
have all of the holiday clean up done before the start of the second week in January.

Keep in mind that we have tried very hard to be sensitive to all religions during the Holidays and if we missed something, please adapt the Holiday clean up missions to fit your needs.

For today, put away all of the wrapping paper, bows, tags, tape etc. Don’t just stuff them somewhere! If they don’t have a home, then make a home for them. Throw away the scraps that you stuffed into a box and shoved into the closet right before the Holiday, don’t ask me how I know that, just trust me that I know!

Take 15 minutes to do this! You will feel great when this one thing is accomplished!

If you didn’t use a Holiday Control Journal this year, you can get a jump start on next year by downloading it now as you are cleaning up after the holidays. You will see lots of things to make notes about. Either use your old Holiday Control Journal or start with a new one.

Have fun and remember we are FLYing!

HOLIDAY CLEAN UP MISSION #2

Today you are to just spend 15 minutes putting away the new Holiday gifts that are still hanging around. If you have the empty boxes and directions to things still hanging around get rid of or put away what you need to save. Set your timer and work fast, then sit back and celebrate what you have done.

HOLIDAY CLEAN UP MISSION #3

Today spend 15 minutes going through some of the decorations that you did not put out this year. We all have those boxes of decorations that we don’t use all of. Take 15 minutes to toss out or give away the ones that you just don’t use anymore, don’t like or are no longer useful. Let’s make sure that this year we de-clutter our decorations and it can start with just 15 minutes!

For today you are to take 15 minutes and put away any decorations that you can. If you are leaving your tree up until the 6th that is fine, but put away what you can!! If you have knick knack type decorations, holiday candles etc., that can be put away, then help yourself out now to put some of them away.

HOLIDAY CLEAN UP MISSION #5

Today you need to take the time to clean up the Holiday leftovers. As in the Holiday food that is leftover in your kitchen that you just haven’t gotten rid of yet. It might be stale cookies or the little ziploc bag of turkey that has been pushed to the back of the refrigerator!! The last piece of pie that no one is going to eat or the mashed potatoes that are now on their way to becoming a science project. Take 15 minutes to get rid them!

OK – It is TIME! Those Holiday decorations are to be taken down and put away one BabyStep at a time! If you have already managed to get your Christmas trees taken down and decorations put away, congratulations!

If not, then spend 15 minutes every day this week getting holiday decorations put away. By this Friday, get the Tree either put away or out of the house! Whew!

This means lights, ornaments, tree, and all other decorations! We are going to party on Friday, and celebrate that we have successfully survived and enjoyed a stress free Holiday by FLYing!

HOLIDAY CLEAN UP MISSION #7

As I told you yesterday, we are focusing on spending 15 minutes each day this week taking down the holiday decorations. Now if your religion is such that this is not what you should be doing this week, then you can do these missions when your holiday time is over. We are celebrating this Friday. Give yourself the biggest gift you can give by having all holiday decorations put away by Friday.

PS – Remember that we have tried very hard to be sensitive to all religions during the Holidays and if we missed something, please adapt the Holiday clean up missions to fit your needs.

HOLIDAY CLEAN UP MISSION #10

You did it! Now take 15 minutes, put your feet up, and go through your Holiday Control Journal. Check to see if there is anything you missed. Make some notes about what worked for you and what didn’t work. Start your gift list for next year. Then keep the Holiday Control Journal in a safe place so you can refer to it when you need it. I keep mine in with my Regular Control Journal. Happy Holidays everyone.

You didn’t have a Holiday Control Journal, No problem
