In your Home and Homeschool
Today is the last day in our zone of the week. How does your Master Bedroom look today? Email a picture to me. I want to celebrate your progress with you. Email a picture to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our zone mission today is to declutter for 15 minutes and take out the trash. Use your timer for this mission. Do not dump a lot of stuff on your bed or floor. Have a box handy to put in items to donate and a trash bag for items you are tossing.
For years, the bedroom has been the recipient of your stash and dash items. It will take time for you to get through all of the clutter in your room. You can spend a couple of minutes each time you put away laundry to pull out things that you are not wearing.
If your children’s clothes are out of control, spend a few minutes a day with them decluttering the clothes that do not fit. If you have gently used clothes, set up a clothing swap with friends, or find a local domestic violence shelter to take the outgrown clothes.
If your children are like mine, they wear the same clothes over and over. Meanwhile, they have clothes that they are not wearing at all.
As I was picking up a cake and card for my son’s birthday, I noticed the large packs of underwear and socks are on sale now. Check your children’s sizes and make a list of their clothing needs.
During the summer, I don’t notice that the boys grow because they are in shorts all of the time. When the weather cools off, suddenly none of their jeans fit. It’s time to take an inventory and purge. Then, there will be room for the next size up in clothes.
Be ruthless in purging clothes. The majority of Americans have too many clothes. We accumulate them, and they take over our homes. Having too many clothes costs us a lot of energy in maintaining them and in washing them.
Finish up your missions and enjoy your weekend.
