Clean Out Your Closet – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool
Hello! How are you today? Have you finished your school year? We are finished for the year with our homeschool. During the next two months, they will read and do some math pages. This will also allow me some extra time to devote to decluttering in the garage and storage area. It’s harder to get into those areas during the school year because I am balancing school and our routines.

Today we are going to declutter in the closet in our bedroom. Set the timer for 15 minutes and pull out anything that does not fit, or that you do not like. Put it in the basket of stuff to give away. Ask your kids to do the same thing. This will help you thin down what you have and bless someone else.
