Quick List Friday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized


Walk into a room in your house and make a quick list of 6 things you would like to do in the room to declutter, organize, or decorate. Set your timer and pick a number. Keep playing this game throughout the day until you have all 6 things finished.  The point is to make this a game ad help you get ready for Thanksgiving next week. Check your main bathroom one more time to see if there is anything else you need to do in there to clean or declutter.

Have you been working on a thankful list? Have each person in your home write down things he/she is thankful for. Share these next week as a family. This is one of our favorite things to do for Thanksgiving. If you have family who you will not see for Thanksgiving, write them a note and tell them what you are thankful for.
