Detail Clean and Decorate Your Living Room – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


This week we will work in two zones. We will finish out the month of March detail cleaning and decorating our living rooms. On Friday, we will work in Zone 1 and make our entryway inviting to guests and our family. We want our homes to have peace and be welcoming to all who come in the door. That is not just for visitors, but our family members who live in the home are blessed when we take the time to detail clean and decorate. It’s spring now, and it is time to switch out our winter decorations and put out some spring flowers and decorations.

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.
