Mission Monday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Welcome to Mission Monday! It’s time to start our Holiday Missions, so we can baby-step our way through the Holidays and not burn ourselves out doing too much at once. If you have not downloaded my Holiday Mission e-book yet, sign up for my newsletter to the right. It has helpful pages for you to do your menu planning, grocery lists, gift lists, and a daily calendar for November, December, and January. I will also put the daily tips in my newsletter and on the blog. The e-book will just help you see the whole picture and give you forms to use.

Holiday Mission – Sweep the Front Porch and Decorate for Fall; Print address labels for your Christmas cards. Remember to update addresses for friends or family who have moved.

Now let’s move on to our daily missions this week:

This week we are in Zone 5 – The Front Porch, Entry Way, and Dining Room.

Monday – Sweep the front porch and declutter anything you do not need on the porch

Tuesday – Detail clean your entry way

Wednesday – Clear the flat surfaces in your dining room and detail dust (Remember to clean the windows and blinds.)

Thursday – Declutter anything you do not need in the entry way and dining room.

Friday – Chec k your holiday china and serving pieces for damage and clean them if needed.
