Quick and easy bedroom missions

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
Are you ready for short and sweet decluttering missions that will help you make your Master Bedroom look and function better for you? You will be surprised at how you will love seeing your bedroom at the end of the week after you get rid of the clutter.
If you have children at home, use these same missions for them!
Here are you missions for the week:
Zone 4 Missions: The Master Bedroom
Monday – declutter for 15 minutes in the master bedroom. Turn on some music and set the timer. Then try to find 27 things to throw away, put away, or give away.
Tuesday – deal with the clothes pile in your bedroom (or the laundry basket that is full of clothes). Try to find some things to throw away or give away.
Wednesday – Today you are going to focus on the bottom of your closet. Pull out the things that you can either give away or. (Yes, some of you have shoes in there that just need to go in the trash.)
Thursday – Declutter the top surface items and straighten your night stand.
Friday – Declutter items from the top of your dresser and detail dust. Sweep or vacuum under your bed, too.
Set your timers for 15 minutes and then take a break when it goes off!
Weekly Menu Plan
Monday – Chopped Chicken and Walnut Salad
Tuesday – Basalmic Chicken
Wednesday – Mushroom Pasta
Thursday – Soup and Sandwich
Friday – Take out
Enjoy your week! Keep your routines simple.
Your Master Bedroom is your place of respite. It’s where you go to rest. You deserve a bedroom that is free of clutter and peaceful. Once you declutter and maintain your flat surfaces, you will see a difference in how you feel about your master bedroom.
Your children’s bedrooms might be problem areas. The best tip I have shared about children’s bedrooms is that you have to be specific when you give them a zone mission. You cannot simply tell them to go clean their rooms and expect that they will do what you are thinking in your mind.
This week as you do your missions in your bedroom, specifically tell your children what they need to do in their bedrooms. Some of them may need to start with the floor or a section of the floor. Some of them may need to go into their rooms and simply pull out trash for 15 minutes at a time.
Your children may be pack rats and have things shoved under their beds. This is not an easy mission, so I would recommend that you have a reward for the end of the week for them getting their missions accomplished in their bedrooms this week.
You also need a reward for dealing with the clutter in your bedroom. Let go of your perfectionism and the need to hold onto everything. Think of how you can bless someone else with your excess clothes or shoes that are in good condition.
Look for a ministry that is collecting clothes or shoes and take them a nice-size donation at the end of the week.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash the sheets.
Your Zone Mission for Monday is to declutter in the Master Bedroom.
My menu plan for Monday is chicken and salad.
Have a blessed day!
