I love Monday!

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,
How was your weekend? My family had a great weekend of fun and play, and today it’s time to get back to our decluttering and zone missions. I look forward to Monday mornings now because my house does not fall apart on the weekends, and I am ready to start decluttering in a new zone each Monday.
Several years ago, I did not feel this way about Monday morning. There may be some of you reading this who do not enjoy Monday morning very much for a variety of reasons. If you are in the season with small children in the home, they tend to pull stuff out on Sunday afternoon, and it is still sitting out on Monday morning.
If you find yourself with clutter this morning and are feeling down, I want you to turn on some music and set your timer for 15 minutes. Then zip through your house putting things way. Involve your children in picking up their things and play along with you.
Here are you missions for the week:
Zone 2 Missions: The Kitchen
Monday – dust along the tops of your kitchen walls, fixtures, and cabinets if they do not go all the way up to your ceiling.
Tuesday – wipe the outside of your cabinet doors.
Wednesday – toss leftovers from the fridge.
Thursday – declutter stuff from the tops of your kitchen counters.
Friday – sweep and mop the kitchen.
Set your timers for 15 minutes and then take a break when it goes off!
Weekly Menu Plan
Monday – Pasta and a Salad
Tuesday – Pork BBQ and Salad
Wednesday – Soup and Sandwiches
Thursday – Chicken and Salad
Friday – Take out
Enjoy your week! Keep your routines simple.
This week we are decluttering in the kitchen, and while you are doing your missions, I want you to carefully look at the items you have in the kitchen. Do you use all of your small appliances? If not, what can you donate?
We all have a tendency to collect kitchen items, and then we end up with more than we can use. It’s time to bless someone else with your excess in the kitchen.
Over a year ago, we did a kitchen makeover. I have a couple of boxes that have sat in the closet since then. I am going to go through them this week and get rid of most of it. It’s small kitchen stuff that I have not missed in a year.
Thank you to those who responded to my email regarding my Planner. If you have not seen it and would like to receive a PDF via email, just reply to this email, and I will send it to you. I would love more input on it.
If you want a print one, I have some of the 2018-19 printed planners left. Email me if you would like one for the cost of shipping. I would love to clear out the last of my inventory.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash the sheets.
Your Zone Mission for Monday is to dust along the tops of the kitchen walls, across the tops of your cabinets, and your fixtures.
My menu plan for Monday is pasta and salad.
Have a blessed day!
