Moving Furniture and Decluttering

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,
It’s the last day of the month, and it’s the last day in Zone 5. Today, I want you to move your living room furniture around and detail vacuum. If you have time, pull the cushions and vacuum the furniture. Enlist the help of your children for this mission, if they are big enough to help.
After you move the furniture around, look at the room and see if there is another way to arrange the furniture in your living room. This will give it a new look.
Sometimes you can move furniture or accessories from one room to another and give your room a make over. Staging rooms is a lot of fun, and as you declutter and use the things that you love the most, you will enjoy these missions more and more.
How many of you have Family Rooms and Living Rooms? When you have both, you can alternate your zone missions from month to month between the two rooms. If you can do the mission in both rooms in 15 minutes, that is another tatic for getting the missions done.
Tomorrow, we are going to spend 15 minutes in Zone 1, and that includes three areas. Keep that in mind as you are going about your day. Have a thought process on what you will focus on in Zone 1. I want you to see progress without burning yourself out trying to do too many things in a day.
How are you doing with your homeschool year? The winter sometimes seems long when you can’t get outside often and enjoy the outdoors. If you are feeling a little burned out with homeschooling, schedule a field trip soon.
Another way to re-energize yourself is to have an outing with some homeschool mom friends. Just talking to others who are in the trenches, too, will help. This year has been different for me, and I have not been able to participate in my local homeschool group like I have in the past. I miss it.
Did you release clutter from your home in February? That was our habit of the month, and hopefully, you have found a way to bless others with your excess.
Your Zone Mission today is to detail vacuum the Living Room or Family Room.
Your Home Blessing for today is to toss paper and magazines.
My menu plan for Thursday is BBQ, sides, and a salad.
Have a blessed day!
