Letting go of your Excess

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
Today’s zone mission is designed to help you manage your clothes. Your mission might take place in your bedroom, but it may start in the laundry room or wherever you might have baskets of clean laundry.
You are going to work with your pile or basket of clothes today. You need to put your clean clothes away. If you do not have enough room for the clean clothes, you need to declutter some of the clothes you have in your closet and/or dresser.
Get a box that you can put donations in as you work. Set the timer for 15 minutes and start purging clothes. Many of you have three or four sizes of clothes. You might have maternity clothes or nursing tops, and your youngest child is over age 10. You need to bless someone with your excess clothes.
As many of you are entering warmer weather, really consider the winter clothes that have hung in your closet this year, and you have not worn them this season.
If you start to talk yourself into holding onto some of the clothes, don’t think too deeply about it. Make it your mission to really thin out the amount of clothes you and your children have.
A mission for your children today would be to ask them to bring you five things that they cannot wear or do not wear. Add these to your give away box.
If possible, fill up a box and donate it this week.
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter clothes and put away any clothes that are in piles.
Your Home Blessing for today is to dust and vacuum.
My menu plan for Tuesday is basalmic chicken.
Have a great day!
