Master Bedroom Monday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

 

Hello! Welcome to a new week! We are going to work in the Master Bedroom, and if you have children at home, you can use these missions daily to help focus their tasks in their bedrooms. I am finding that by keeping the number of clothing items my children have on hand greatly reduced, it is so much easier for them to keep their rooms cleaned. I can spend 15 minutes per child and purge in their closet once a month, and they are not living in CHAOS in their rooms. It has been very freeing to let go of the excess clothes in our home. My husband has even taken it upon himself to declutter in his closet over the weekend. He got a jump on the week! Today my youngest son was helping me fold laundry, and he put two clothing items of his in the give away box, and he tossed a t-shirt that was worn out. I did not prompt him to do this. He did it on his own. It’s been a blessing to see this fruit in my family. If you feel alone in the process, just hang in there and keep moving forward. It will make an impact on your family.
