Decluttering the Dining Room and Special Meals

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,
Today we move our zone mission to the Dining Room. If you have a Dining Room and don’t use it often, it likely has clutter in it. It is a popular stash and dash place for things that need a place to be put.
Dining Rooms are wonderful and look great when you keep them clutter free and use them, even if it is only occasional use. My family enjoys it when I fix a special meal and use the good china. If you have not done that in a while, now is a good time to schedule one.
My house does not have a specific Dining Room, but I can set up my kitchen table with nice tablecloth and my good china. I can use candles and cloth napkins. It does not have to take a lot of extra effort, but it is nice to do this for your family once in a while, when it is not a holiday.
In order to do this, you might need to declutter and detail clean first. That would be step 1. Then, sit down with your family and plan a menu. Include your family in all stages of planning, shopping, and preparation. You do not have to cook the entire thing youself.
If the flowers are not blooing outside, consider buying a bouquet of flowers for your meal. Make this a special event for your family. If you don’t have a large family, that’s okay, too. Special meals can be for any size family from one person to many people.
So take that first step today and start decluttering and detail cleaning for 15 minutes.
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter in the Dining Room.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe windows and mirrors.
My menu plan for Wednesday is pasta.
Have a blessed day!
