Zone 3 – The Main Bathroom – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Welcome to a new week! This week we are going to detail clean our main bathroom, and if you have extra helpers in your home, you can have everyone work together to detail clean all of the bathrooms in your home. We have three bathrooms, and we have 5 males in the house. So detail cleaning is a must for us. We do a quick daily swish and swipe, so the detail cleaning focuses on decluttering and wiping down other surfaces in the bathroom. You can find the weekly plan below, but let’s just focus on today for now.
Today, let’s declutter the tops of the bathroom counter and the cabinets. Spend 15 minutes or less on this. If you have a place for all of your toiletries, this can go very quickly. If you store your toiletries on your counter, this will take longer. Having a place for everything is a good thing. If you stuff things into your drawers, you need to work on stopping that habit. Clean out the drawers and organize the things you must have. Toss expired make-up and lotions. Toss old toothbrushes, even the one you kept for grout cleaning. Go head and get yourself a new toothbrush and relegate your current toothbrush to grout cleaning.
Here are your Zone Missions for the week for
