Show Me Your Living Room

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 


Dear Friends,
How did you do with the Zone Missions this week? I want to see your progress in your living room. Email a picture to me at
Each week I want you to see progress in your home with these missions. I also want you to feel a shift in how you view caring for your home through these missions and Home Blessings. While you will always have things coming into your home, a few minutes of decluttering each day will help you tame the
clutter monster.
Look at clutter like balancing your checkbook. If you always bring stuff into the house, you need to keep a balance by getting rid of things you are not using any longer. If you bring in 5 new things, you need to get rid of 5 to 10 old things. You always want to get rid of the same amount of stuff or more.
If you are living with a lot of clutter and are frozen in your tracks, I want you to consider making a pact to not bring anything new into your house unless it is food or medically necessary. Just buy the things you truly NEED and not buy the things that you want for one month.
During that month, I want you to spend 5 to 10 minutes a day bagging things up to give away or trash. Some of you are holding onto “stuff” so you can have a yard sale. Yard sales are a lot of trouble, and I do not recommend you have them.
Many of you are holding onto stuff to give to just the right person. This stuff is taking up valuable space in your home. Spend a few minutes in each room in your home and pretend you are a real estate agent. You want to stage this house to get it ready to sell. What would you keep? What would you get rid of?
Take some pictures of your rooms and closets. What can you do to maximize your space and lose the cluttered feel?
The bottom line is that you need to get rid of stuff. You are holding onto things that no longer bless your family. You need to release these things and bless someone else with your abundance.
Send me some pictures of your living room or family room! How did you do with your zone missions this week?
Today’s Zone Mission is to do a Hot Spot Fire Drill in your Living Room.
Your Home Blessing for today is to empty the trash, sweep, and mop.
My menu plan for Friday is take out.
Have a wonderful weekend!
