Dresser Declutter Wednesday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool
How does your dresser look? Do the drawers stuffed full? Today, I want you to pick just one drawer and declutter it. Toss the things that you have not worn in the last year. Toss anything that has holes that are not intended to be there. Toss or give away things that do not fit but would be okay for someone else to wear. Last month, I took one day for each of the drawers of my dresser and thinned out what I keep in my drawers. It has been so quick and easy to put away my folded laundry since I did that. If you have children at home, work your way through their dresser with them, one drawer at a time. When I did this, my husband was encouraged to work on his drawers, too. So we had a nice decluttering session with all of our dressers. It’s not too bad when you do it in small steps.
Zone Mission: Declutter one dresser drawer

Grocery Shopping and Errand Day – Take your list, pack snacks, and water bottles.

Home:
  • Make Your Bed (Do this as soon as you get up.)
  • Get Dressed Down to Your Shoes
  • Swish and Swipe
  • Start Your Laundry
  • Decide on Dinner
  • Check Your Calendar
  • Start the Day off with a Shiny Sink. Don’t leave the breakfast dishes sitting.

School: Are you doing a read aloud book for the whole family? If not, pick one out and read at lunch time or in the evening. It will bring a new dimension to your school day.


Afternoon Routine:
  • Eat Lunch
  • Clear off One Hot Spot
  • Reboot the Laundry
  • Declutter for 15 Minutes (Be sure to have your children declutter, too.)
  • Drink Your Water
  • Errand day: Make your plan for grocery shopping and errands. Pack water bottles and snacks for everyone. Pack up your library books that need to be turned in.
Family Fun: Plan a fun activity while you are out. I am in the habit of checking for free activities that are going on while we are out doing errands.
When you get home from doing errands, have everyone work together to unload and put away everything.

Before Bed: (This starts right after dinner.) 
  • Check the Calendar for Tomorrow
  • Lay out Your Clothes for Tomorrow (Have your children lay their clothes out, too.)
  • Put things at the Launch Pad that you will need first thing in the morning
  • Shine Your Sink
  • Clean Off a Hot Spot
  • Go to Bed at Decent Hour
