Declutter Flat Surfaces in Living Room – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


You started the week off by decuttering the flat surfaces in your living room. Today, we are going to end the week cleaning off the flat surfaces in the living room. I assigned this mission twice in a week because I know how easily things get piled on the flat surfaces in our living rooms. If we have more than ourselves in the house, it happens usually as soon as a surface is cleaned. So today clean off those flat surfaces one more time, and over the next week, be intentional about maintaining these surfaces. Remind people to put things away instead of dropping them on the first available flat surface. Use your decorations and pictures to keep nice things displayed on the flat surfaces. Keep up the great work!


Have a great week-end!

Zone Mission: Declutter the flat surfaces in your living room (If they look good, pick another area in the house with cluttered surfaces.)
Menu Mission: My menu plan for today is Rotisserie Chicken because it’s grocery shopping day. I will serve it with a salad and fresh veggies.¬†
