Are you ready to let go of paper clutter this month?

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,
Happy October 1st! We are embarking on a new habit of the month starting today. We are going to declutter paper for a few minutes each day. As homeschoolers, we have a lot of paper in our homes. Really work on letting it go a little at a time.
Here are you missions for the week:
Zone 1 Missions: The Front Porch, Entryway, and Dining Room
Monday – Declutter Front Porch/Entryway
Tuesday – Sweep Front Porch/Entryway
Wednesday – Declutter in the Dining Room
Thursday – Declutter in the Interior Part of Your Entryway (Launch Pad)
Friday – Dust High and Low in the Dining Room
Set your timers and then take a break when it goes off!
The front portion of your home is seen by each person who enters your home. It is also the place where people drop things when they come in the door. The entryway is often your launch pad area, so it may need attention more than once a month. It might be a daily Hot Spot area that you have declutter.
If you do not have a formal dining room area, you can use the mission time on those days to organize your homeschool materials. Spend a few minutes on your homeschool materials regardless if you have a dining room or not. Homeschool materials can take over our homes, if we don’t stay on top of them.
Here’s your recap of the Weekly Zone Missions.
On Monday, declutter the front porch and entryway for 15 minutes. Take a trash bag with you to these areas. Toss, toss, toss.
On Tuesday, sweep the front porch, shake out your welcome mat and make it look beautiful. Sweep the entryway of your home while you are at it.
On Wednesday, declutter in the Dining Room for 15 minutes. Toss the things you don’t need. Check the corners. Put away the things you want to keep. If you have items that have been hanging out and waiting on you to make a decision, toss them or donate them.
On Thursday, declutter the interior area of your entryway. This may be your launch pad area, and it might get cluttered on a daily basis.
On Friday, dust high and low in the dining room. Use your feather duster and have fun while dusting. This is a great time to play music and dance around the room.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash the sheets.
Your Zone Mission for Monday is to declcutter the front porch and entryway.
My menu plan for Monday is round steak and a salad.
Have a blessed day!
