Clean Out Your Closet Tuesday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Today let’s clean out some of the extra stuff in our closet. Set your timer and do a 27-Fling Boogie in your closet. Find 27 things you can throw away, put away, or give away. Our Master Bedroom closet can be a dumping grounds for extra stuff. So let’s clear that stuff out before Christmas. Then you will have room for that new Holiday dress and shoes. You can also ask your children to bring you anything from their closet that does not fit. You can decide what to do with the items after they bring them to you. Children grow quickly, so they likely have things in their closet that does not fit. You can extend it to them bringing you things they will not wear. Take a look at their dress clothes and make sure they have what they need for the Holidays.

Zone Mission: Tuesday – Master Bedroom Closet and Children’s Closets

Holiday Mission: Do any early baking today that you can freeze or refrigerate until Thanksgiving. I am going to make pumpkin pies today.
