Zone Missions: Your Week at a Glance

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Dear Friends,
Last week I had a request to put your Weekly Zone Missions at the top of the Monday email. I thought that was a good idea to help you get a jump start on your week.
This week we are in Zone 2 – The Kitchen.
Monday – Declutter the counter tops and wipe down
Tuesday – Declutter items from 1 cabinet
Wednesday – Declutter items from the fridge
Thursday – Declutter items from one drawer
Friday – Wipe the stove top and microwave
As you are doing your Zone Missions this week think about the upcoming Holidays. Write down the items you notice are running low. Check expiration dates on the items in your pantry. You might be surprised at some of the out of date food you have in your pantry.
Last summer, I decluttered all of my out dated spices, and I replaced them. It was nice to see that I have Pumpkin Pie Spice and Apple Pie Spice on hand for my baking this month.
Remember that your canned food items can also expire. Check those, too. I do my best to rotate my canned food items. Since I usually have help putting away groceries, I can’t say that the new cans always go to the back of the shelf.
Just work on your pantry a little at a time. Don’t pull it all out at once.
Take a look at your homeschool calendar today. You have a few weeks until Thanksgiving, so review lesson plans to see if your children are on track. You may have a child who is struggling with a new concept and readjust your expectations on what you wanted accomplished. Or you might have a child who is going through a subject much faster than you anticipate.
If you are behind on grading, catch that up this week. I want you to have a nice Holiday break and not be thinking about school stuff.
How are you doing with your school year?
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter the counter tops and wipe down.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash sheets.
My menu plan for Monday is country fried steak and gravy for the guys. Chicken and a salad for me.
Have a great day!
