Room Rescue Thursday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

 

As we are looking forward to the Holidays, we have been getting our homes ready for our family. Today, let’s do a 15-minute room rescue in the room of your choice. Pick a room. Set the timer and see what you can do in 15 minutes. You can do a 27-Fling Boogie. You can move and straighten the room. You can decorate it if you want. The point is that you want your home to be welcoming and peaceful for your family. Sometimes, we tend to look past some of the clutter in our homes, and this is your chance to look at a room with fresh eyes and make some changes.

Holiday Mission: Thursday

Put out the last of your Fall decor and light a candle. Enjoy the fruits of your labor in decorating.
