How did you do with your Zone Missions this week?

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 main bathroom (or your home office). Email a picture to me at
Your Zone Missions this week took you into a couple of areas. You had missions in the main bathroom. My hope is that you like the way it looks now. If you do your daily swish and swipe, you should not have a lot of monthly maintenance when we come around to zone 3.
Then you will have more time to spend on zone missions in other areas of your home. I know that you want to declutter in your basement, garage, or attic. You can spend a few minutes each day during the third week of the month on these areas, and you will start to see change.
If your decluttering projects are large, break them down into smaller areas to focus on each month. You can also involve your family, especially if you are dealing with items that belong to them. One of my friends has been working with her children this summer to declutter their items that have been stored in the garage. They have made great progress.
Another friend has been assigning her children zone missions this summer in their bedrooms that follow the Student Control Journal. She has seen great improvement in her children’s rooms and in their daily routines.
As you see improvements around your home and with your routines, you should start feeling more relaxed and less stressed. As you declutter, you should find it easier to do your Home Blessings and Routines. You are doing these to love yourself and take care of you.
You will also have more time for fun with your family on the weekend as you spend time during the week on your decluttering projects. We all like to have fun with our families, and your missions around the house take away the guilt you feel when you have a messy house and want to do fun things with your family.
What are some areas where you have seen improvements in your home this summer?
Today’s Zone Mission is to wipe the bathroom baseboards and check your office supplies.
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!
