Detail Clean the Living Room – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

 

Hello! Welcome to a new week! We are going to spend some time decluttering and detail cleaning the Living Room this week. Last month, we only had one day in the Living Room, so let’s hit those areas we missed last month. Just take it one day at a time and one mission at a time. Make it fun when you do your missions. Turn on some fun music and make it a game. Encourage your children to help you and have fun with the missions.

Zone Missions: Living Room 
 
Monday – Declutter & Detail Dust Flat Surfaces
Tuesday – Detail Dust from Ceiling Down to the Baseboards
Wednesday – Vacuum Under Furniture
Thursday – Go Sofa Diving
Friday – Switch Out Throw Pillows and Blankets for Spring
 
I will be in Atlanta, GA, this week. Later, I will be in Sandusky, OH, and Winston-Salem, NC.
