Creating Peace in Your Bedroom – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

   

The most peaceful room in your house should be your bedroom. (Your children should also have peaceful bedrooms, too.) The best way to do this is to declutter it. Your bedroom should not become a storage room, but that is where the stuff we don’t know where to put ends up. So this week, let’s concentrate on delcuttering and detail cleaning our master bedroom. We want to have a peaceful place to sleep at night. You can adapt most of these missions for your children to do in their rooms, too. Use your timer and turn on some fun music. When you are doing today’s missions, remember that anything you pile stuff on is a flat surface.

The Habit of the Month with The FlyLady is to get rid of paper clutter. Spend 2 minutes a day getting rid of paper clutter. You can do this!
