Using Games to Help You Declutter

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool


Dear Friends,
Today is anti-procrastination day. I thought I would do something different with you today. Let’s play a little BINGO game to help declutter some of the areas you have been meaning to clean.

First, write down 5 short things you would like to accomplish. If you have a big project, break it down into steps. Assign one of these things to each letter BINGO.

You will need a timer for this game. I want you to keep this short and sweet today. You will just work in 5 minute increments.
For the letter B, start your timer and do whatever you assigned to “B.” You can include the children in this, but the goal is for you to accomplish some things that you have been meaning to do.

When the timer goes off, get a sip of water. Check your list for the letter “I.” What do you have written down? Reset the timer for 5 minutes and get busy! You can do it!

Each time the timer goes off, move on to the next thing on your list. You may not finish what you started, but you started. That is the hardest step.

Once you got through all 5 letters, just stop for now. You can play this game daily. It will help you work through your small and big projects. If you play music, it will give you a nice tempo as you move through the house.

Tell me some fun ways you have found to play games and declutter your home.

Your Zone Mission today is to detail dust the Living Room.

Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe your windows and mirrors.

My menu plan for Wednesday is stir-fry chicken.

Have a great day!
