Declutter and Detail Clean in the Kitchen

Getting Organized:

In your home and homeschool


Dear Friends,


This week we are going to declutter and detail clean in the kitchen. The kitchen is one of your most-used rooms in the house. Spend 15 minutes a day this week making it functional, less cluttered, and cleaner. The flat surfaces in your kitchen collect clutter quickly. It is the one area I deal with a Hot Spot every day.


Here are you missions for the week:


Zone 2 Missions: The Kitchen


Monday – Declutter & Wipe the Kitchen Counters

Tuesday – Declutter items from 1 kitchen drawer

Wednesday – Declutter leftovers from the fridge

Thursday – Declutter items from 1 kitchen cabinet

Friday – Wipe the stove top and microwave


Set your timers and then take a break when it goes off!


Have you started sorting and decluttering items from your school supplies and books. Many of us are wrapping up the school year this month. Start now with decluttering the items you are not using. Pull out the books your children have finished for the year. Make room for the new books you will be buying for next year. You just need to do a little bit at a time each week to get it done.

If you have some subjects that you know you want to make a curriculum change, start your research now. If you have a homeschool conference that is close to you, consider attending it.

This spring, I am speaking at two conferences. I will be speaking May 17-19, 2018, in Lansing, Michigan, at the INCH Conference.

Later in the month, I will be speaking at my home state conference in Winston-Salem, NC, at the NCHE Conference. It is May 31-June 2, 2018.

If you are close to either of these conferences, I would love to see you there!

Your Home Blessing for today is to wash the sheets.

Your Zone Mission for today is to declutter the counters and wipe down.

My menu plan for Monday is beef stew for the guys and salad for me.

Have a blessed day!
