Getting Organized Week 6 Day 5


We are wrapping up the last day of the week with Day 5 of Week 6 in the Getting Organized in your home and homeschool series. Please email me and tell me what you think of this series. Is it helping you?


Set your timer for 15 minutes for the Home Assignment and 15 minutes for the School Assignment



  • Make Your Bed (Do this as soon as you get up.)
  • Get Dressed Down to Your Shoes
  • Swish and Swipe
  • Start Your Laundry
  • Decide on Dinner
  • Check Your Calendar
  • Start the Day off with a Shiny Sink. Don’t leave the breakfast dishes sitting.



  • Have you thought about supplemental activities for the school year? You may want to look into co-ops or other opportunities for your children during the school year. My family has participated in weekly co-ops, and we enjoyed doing educational activities with others. We have also participated in our local 4-H clubs. You might want to look into that for your family.


Afternoon Routine:

  • Eat Lunch
  • Clear off One Hot Spot
  • Reboot the Laundry
  • Declutter for 15 Minutes (Be sure to have your children declutter, too.)
  • Drink Your Water
  • Zone Focus: Spend 15 minutes decluttering your kitchen counters. It will take daily practice to keep the hot spots on your counters tamed.


Family Fun: Go on a picnic. If you can’t go out for a picnic, then have one at home. Build a fort or set up a tent outside. Do something different that you have not done this summer.


Before Bed: (This starts right after dinner.) 

  • Check the Calendar for Tomorrow
  • Lay out Your Clothes for Tomorrow (Have your children lay their clothes out, too.)
  • Put things on your launch pad for the next day.
  • Shine Your Sink
  • Clean Off a Hot Spot
  • Go to Bed at Decent Hour

Enjoy your week-end! Plan a family activity for Saturday and rest on Sunday.
