Lovely Living Rooms – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

This week we are going to declutter and detail clean in our living rooms for 15 minutes a day. We want to have a peaceful and loving home, and it is possible to achieve this by doing small projects daily. Two of the biggest tips I have for keeping the home clean and peaceful besides consistency is to get rid of clutter and to train everyone to pick up behind themselves daily. If you are the one picking up behind your children, you need to stop. Even young children can pick up behind themselves. It is not our duty or job to pick up their toys behind them. Teach them to only get a few things out at a time and put them away when they are finished playing. Here are your missions for the week:
Zone Missions for the week:
Monday – Detail dust the Living Room
