Taking Care of the Front of Your House

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

 

Dear Friends,
How does the front of your house look? It’s the first thing people see when they come into your driveway or drive down your street.
In the past few weeks, I cleaned out my bedroom, so I could paint it. That meant that a lot of stuff went into boxes. Those boxes ended up in my entryway. Over the weekend, I painted my room, so this week, I will spend a few minutes each day putting things away. This will clean up my entryway.
Your entryway is where people come into the house and drop things. It becomes a gathering place for clutter. You might have your launch pad area in the entryway, too. This is another clutter magnet.
Shoes, coats, hats, and bags end up in the entryway as people come into the house. If this happens in your home, make it easy for people to hang coats and put away their things.
What does your entryway look like right now?
Purpose to spend 15 minutes a day decluttering and putting things away. Remind your family to put their things away instead of dropping them when they walk into the house. If everyone just picked up behind themselves, it would make a big difference on how your home looked.
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter the Entryway.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash sheets.
My menu plan for Monday is hamburgers for the guys and grilled chicken for me.
Have a great day!
