Detail Cleaning in the Bedroom – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Happy Monday! Welcome to a new week and a new Zone in your house. This week we will be working in the Master Bedroom. This is the room in the house that we use to stash things when we have company over. It is the room where things that need a place go. This week, we are going to declutter it.

If you homeschool, make sure you are current on paperwork you are legally obligated to maintain according to state laws. Don’t procrastinate if you have to provide a portfolio or other paperwork this spring.

If you have not filed your taxes, start collecting information this week and set your appointment to get your taxes filled out. April 15 will be here before you know it.
