Happy Labor Day! Here are your missions for the week.

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
Happy Labor Day! If you are taking today off from school to enjoy your family, just skim through this email. You will have some missions for today, but you can combine them with the missions later in the week, if you are having Family Fun Day today.
Here are you missions for the week:
Zone 1 and 2 Missions: The Front Porch, Entryway, Dining Room, and Kitchen
Monday - Deal with Hot Spots in Zone 1
Tuesday – Zone 2 – The Kitchen – Clean out under the sink
Wednesday – Declutter extra plastic containers and single lids
Thursday - Declutter in the Pantry
Friday – Declutter & Dust the top of the Fridge
Set your timers and then take a break when it goes off!
As we begin September, we will be practicing the habit of our Before Bed Routine. This is the most important routine in your day. Start it right after dinner and encourage your family to participate in laying out clothes and getting things ready at the launch pad for the next morning.
Here’s your recap of the Weekly Zone Missions.
On Monday, spend 15 minutes decluttering in Zone 1 – the front porch, entryway, and dining room. Involve your family if they are home today. Use your timer and some upbeat music. Just hit the hot spots.
On Tuesday, we are going to move on to Zone 2 – the kitchen. Keep this quick and simple. Toss and clutter that is residing under your kitchen sink. If you do this in 5 minutes, you will have a few extra minutes to spend on Zone 1, if needed.
On Wednesday, toss any plastic containers that do not have both parts. Toss the containers that have no lids and the single lids. It’s strange how that can happen, but it does.
On Thursday, spend 15 minutes decluttering in the pantry. Check expiration dates and move things to the front of the cabinet if they have a short amount of time before they expire.
On Friday, declutter the items from the top of your fridge and dust it.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash the sheets.
Your Zone Mission for Monday is to deal with the Hot Spots in zone 1.
My menu plan for Monday is a Labor Day cookout complete with hot dogs and hamburgers.
Have a blessed day!
