Decluttering is not one size fits all.

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,
Who needs to release some clutter from the Living Room or Family Room this week? Most of you should have your hand up for this one. We all have clutter. It resides in different places in our homes.
The first thing I want you to do for today’s mission is to gather your decluttering kit. A decluttering kit is simple. You need a box or bag for trash, donations, and things to put away.
Set your timer and spend 15 minutes gathering things that do not belong in your living room. If you put things in the donation box, take it out to the car when you finish today’s mission. Take the trash out. Put away the items that need to be put in other places in your home.
Make this fun with some music. Challenge your children to find things to put away. See how nice your living room looks with less clutter.
Zone 5 Missions: The Living Room
Monday – Declutter for 15 minutes in the Living Room
Tuesday – Check the sofa and chair for clutter
Wednesday – Spend 15 minutes decluttering in the Dining Room
Thursday – Declutter items from the entryway
Friday – Declutter in the Dining Room or sweep the Front Porch
Set your timers and then take a break when it goes off!
This week will bring us the end of one month and the beginning of a new month. We will have two days to declutter in the Living Room or Family Room. Use these days to get the clutter out of those areas.
When we transition to Zone 1, you may not have a dining room to declutter. You can adapt the missions to either spend a few more days decluttering other areas. The beauty of the FlyLady system is that you can adapt it. It’s not a one size fits all.
Your home is unique. Some homes have different rooms and different configurations. You just use the daily mission as your launch pad for the rooms in your home.

Monday – Shepherd Pie
Tuesday – Tacos
