Where did you declutter this week?

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

    

Dear Friends,
How did you do with the Zone Missions this week? I want to see your progress in your kitchen. Email a picture to me at Tami@TamiFox.com.
Zone 3 is one of my favorite zones because I maintain my bathroom using the swish and swipe method, and I love being able to pick where I am going to declutter. This way, I can target an area that has clutter building, or I can work on a different area each day.
If you are not doing swish and swipe in your bathroom daily, I want you to start now. It’s simple, and it only takes a few minutes each day.
This is how I do mine:
After my daily shower, I wipe the shower walls down with a purple rag. Then I give the tub a quick wipe. Next, I wipe the bathroom counter and sinks. I take a look at the mirror to see if it needs a quick wipe, too. Next, I swish the toilet with a toilet brush and wipe the edge of the toilet with a piece of toilet paper.
This entire process takes me two minutes.
When we have our monthly decluttering and detail cleaning session, I don’t have to do a lot. I basically check supplies and see if I need to toss anything from the cabinets or drawers.
The boys do swish and swipe in their shared bathroom daily as well. I also use that bathroom at some point during the day, so I know if they are doing it or not.
We have hard water with iron in it, and while we filter our water, we still can have stains. Doing swish and swipe helps keep staining to a minimum.
How does your main bathroom look today? What other area did you declutter this week?
Today’s Zone Mission is to mop the bathroom and declutter one other area.
Your Home Blessing for today is to empty the trash, sweep, and mop.
My menu plan for Friday is BBQ.
Have a wonderful weekend!
