Where will you declutter this week?

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
This week we are in Zone 3 – the Main Bathroom and one other area.
Where is your other area this week? The FlyLady’s missions this week give you ideas for decluttering in the guest room, but not all of us have a guest room. So I want to know where you will be decluttering besides the Main Bathroom.
Zone 3 Missions: The Main Bathroom and One Extra Room
Monday – 27 Fling Boogie in the Main Bathroom and one other area. This is the time to find things to throw away, put away, or give away.
Tuesday – Shine your tub/shower. Declutter in one other area.
Wednesday – Wash the bathroom rug, shower curtain, and any accessories. Detail dust one other area.
Thursday – Toss old cosmetics and perfumes. Do another 27 Fling Boogie somewhere else in the house.
Friday – Shine your bathroom sinks and counters. Relax for 15 minutes.
Set your timers and then take a break when it goes off!
This week we lead into a couple of Holidays. We have Flag Day on June 14. Have you ever talked to your children about our flag and the significance of it? Have you shown them earlier renditions of our flag and talked about why it was changed over the years?
How many patriotic songs do your children know? We hear our National Anthem regularly, but there are many more patriotic songs for our country. Look them up and share them with your children.
Next Sunday is Father’s Day. You can guide your children in making something for their Dad or take them shopping. Father’s Day is not nearly as popular as Mother’s Day in terms of cards and gifts. Plan a special lunch with your children to celebrate their dad. We do not like to go out to eat on Holidays because it is so busy, especially after church.
My children have made me breakfast in bed for Mother’s Day, and then they did the same thing for my husband for Father’s Day. It was a sweet thing for them to do, and it makes your loved one feel special.
When my children were little, we decorated a white t-shirt with their hand prints. It’s a special treasure to my husband now that our children are growing up and moving out.
If your father or grandfather live far away, go ahead and get a card in the mail as soon as possible. If possible, go see him, but if that is not possible, call him.
What are some ways you have celebrated Father’s Day?
