Declutter the Living Room – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Do you have people over to visit your home, or are you embarrassed at how your house looks? One area that we usually enjoy with visitors is our living room. Let’s work on making it clutter-free and company ready. It is also family ready then, too. Your family is your most loved of all the people you know, and they are worthy of your efforts to bless your home. If your living room is full of your family’s stuff, you can play a game and see who can put their things away the fastest. Use this week’s missions to spend 15 minutes day making your living room ready for your family and friends.

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!
