Your Bedroom is Your Sanctuary – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Your master bedroom is your place for peace and calm. It’s where you sleep. It shouldn’t be a storage place for laundry that needs to be folded. It shouldn’t be the catch all for stuff that needs a home. It should be happy, joyful, and restful. Let’s spend this week decluttering and detail cleaning, so our bedrooms are our sanctuaries. If you have children at home, give them daily missions for their bedrooms, too. If you get it detail cleaned this week it is very easy to maintain until next month when we come back through the zones. If you want to do a big closet project, please spread it out over several days. Don’t empty your closet in an attempt to organize it. Just work in a small section at a time each day for 5 to 15 minutes. A the season is changing, pull out any of your warm-weather clothes that you did not wear and put them in your donate bin. If you have clothes that don’t fit, pull them out as well. Don’t be a clothes hoarder.

We are practicing our Before Bed Routine for September. If you do not have a solid before bed routine, use the list below to help you get started. I start mine right after dinner each night.

You can have a clean home and homeschool, too. Have a wonderful day!
