In your home and homeschool
This week we are going to work in our Master Bedroom. If you have children at home, you can also apply this to their bedrooms and give them daily zone assignments. The goal is to only do this for 15 minutes at a time. Some of these areas in your room might need longer than that. There is nothing wrong with stopping and going back to this at another time. I work my way through my master closet one section at a time each month. I work on the shelf, the right side, the left side, and the floor. This can be applied to your children’s closets as well. When I declutter dresser drawers, I do them one at a time. I only spend 15 minutes doing this, so if I only get one done, then I do another drawer on another day. This method really works over time. You just have to be patient and consistent. You have to let go of that urge to pull out everything. Dresser tops attract clutter, so work on those this week and see if you can maintain them until next month. Try to store minimal items under your bed. This will help you to be able to clean under it regularly. This week, look at your bedroom curtains and/or blinds. They may need to be washed or cleaned.
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.
