Slow and Steady

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,
Happy Spring to you! Aren’t you glad I am not telling you it’s time to do a big spring clean at your house?
The awesome part about The FlyLady system using Zone Missions and Weekly Home Blessings is that you are deep cleaning your home in small steps all year long.
Think back to a time when you did the big, mega cleaning sessions. How fast did things fall back into the same mess? The problem with the mega cleaning session is that you burn out and don’t want any part of it for months.
When you do the small, detail missions, you feel energized and enjoy seeing the small progress. You also maintain the areas in small steps and don’t fall apart nearly as bad. Even with a lot of children at home, I was able to maintain areas once I started using the zone missions consistently.
Zone missions are so easy to implement. They are almost so easy that you don’t think they will make a difference. They absolutely do make a difference, and if you have been struggling with them, I want you to purpose to do your zone missions next week. You can start with today and build from there.
Each morning is a new start, and I don’t want you to try to do all of the missions at once. Only spend 15 minutes on a zone mission. If you missed one, then buck up, you can just move on to the next one or replace the next one with the one you missed.
Zone missions are designed to help you build the routine of daily detail cleaning and decluttering. They are not meant to be done in bulk.
Enjoy this beautiful new season and jump on into today’s mission!
Your Zone Mission today is declutter items from the top of your night stand.
Your Home Blessing for today is to toss paper and magazines.
My menu plan for Thursday is soup and sandwiches.
Have a blessed day!
