Peaceful Bedrooms – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

If you have been reading my emails or blog posts for long, you have probably realized that I like a peaceful home. There are many facets to having a peaceful home. One of the big ones for me is to have a decluttered home. That gives a sense of peace when other things seem to go awry. We all have outside things that we have to deal with, so when we go into our bedrooms at night, it should be peaceful and relaxing. It is not peaceful and relaxing if you have things piled everywhere in your bedroom. This week, let’s spend 15 minutes a day making our bedrooms peaceful. Remember that your children can do the same thing in their bedrooms this week. Everyone can work on these missions.

You can have a clean home and homeschool, too.
Zone Missions: Master Bedroom
Monday – Detail Dust the Master Bedroom
Tuesday – Declutter Flat Surfaces
Wednesday – Declutter in Your Closet

Menu Plan for Monday – Grilled Hamburgers and Side Salad (buns for the boys, and lettuce bun for mom)
