Stash and Dash Friday – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Do you know what a Stash and Dash is? It’s when you grab stuff and put it somewhere to deal with later. This happens a lot when you have company coming to your house. Where is your Stash and Dash? For most people, it is in their bedrooms. Yes. That’s right, I have one more mission for you this week in your bedroom. Breathe deep. Focus for 15 minutes. Go into your bedroom. Go to your Stash and Dash. Now start separating your stuff. You will likely have three piles. Throw Away. Give Away. Put Away. The goal is to do something with each item in your Stash and Dash and not leave it in your room, unless it absolutely belongs in your room. Your bedroom should not be a storage area for things that need a home. Find places to put your things or get rid of them. I want you to have a feeling of peace in your bedroom.

If you have any questions or tips, please email me. I enjoy hearing from my readers.
