I might reread It's All Too Much and light that fire again. I think as far as decision-making, it would be easier to decide on a reasonable number of whatever and then choose favorites instead of choosing least favorites/undesirables. The problem with that is it involves dragging everything out to see at once and that requires time and space I rarely have.

I am decluttering as I do laundry. If it's stained, torn, stretched out, etc, I just chunk it. If it doesn't fit I put it in the donate pile or the box for Ezra to grow into.

Anyway, just need to get back to focusing on it. It's been very event-centric here the past 5 weeks with birthdays and holidays and weddings. Plus we were sick a lot. So I need to shake off that "what's coming up next" mentality and focus on daily progress.

As for things I can do in 5 min:
Unload the dishwasher
Clean out the sink
Start a load of laundry
Swish and swipe the front bathroom
Pick up in the hallway
Vacuum (if the floor is clear of debris)
Sweep (same)
Fill the Berkey
A clorox wipe's worth of wiping

10 min:
Fold a load of clothes
Make enough space to stamp on my table
Clear a kitchen counter
Swish and swipe my bathroom

15 min:
Pick up enough to vacuum
Or sweep
Declutter a drawer or box or small stack
