Getting Organized Week 3 Day 1

Welcome to the third week in this series. If you are just getting started, just jump in with us. You can read the previous weeks, but it is not necessary. I want to help you build small, attainable routines into your day. I don’t want you to get overwhelmed and burn out.

 

Monday – Set your timer for 15 minutes for the Home Assignment and 15 minutes for the School assignment.

 

Home:

  • Make your bed when you get up.
  • Brush your teeth and get dressed to the shoes.
  • Swish and swipe the bathroom.
  • Fill your water bottle.
  • Have a 2 minute Hot Spot Fire Drill.
  • Start a load of laundry.
  • Pamper yourself for 15 minutes.
  • Pick one stack of paper and purge for 2 minutes.

 

School: Go to your children’s rooms and purge their bookshelves. Start a new box of books to donate.

 

Family Fun:      Go on a nature walk and take a blank drawing journal for each of you, pencils, and colored pencils. Plan on spending 45 minutes to an hour outside observing nature and drawing what you see. This activity is fun for all ages from preschoolers to adults.

*** An alternate plan would be to go back to the library to get new books.
