Decluttering will help you get organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool
            
Since our zone of the week is the Living Room (and/or Family Room), I want you to take a look around. Is there anything you want to do to change the look of it? Are Christmas presents still taking up residence in your living room? Let’s start with putting the new things away. Then, set the timer for 15 minutes. Gather any Holiday decorations that are left in the Living Room and put them away. Start thinking about moving the furniture around. You can change the look of a room by moving the furniture around. Tomorrow’s zone mission will be to clean under the furniture anyway, so start thinking today. Your goal is to declutter today and think.

 

Zone Mission: Declutter and put away decorations

Weekly Home Blessings of the Day: Quick Dust and Vacuum
