Decluttering and Making Your Kitchen Shine

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,
How was your weekend? This week we are going to declutter and detail clean in the kitchen. This is a well-used room in your home, and it has a tendency to collect clutter on the flat surfaces.
Zone 2 Missions: The Kitchen
Monday – Clean your stovetop and decluter one area of your kitchen counters.
Tuesday – Clean the silverware holder and declutter a different portion of your counters.
Wednesday – Clean out leftovers from the fridge and declutter another portion of your counters.
Thursday – Declutter unnecessary items from the plastic wrap drawer and declutter another area in the kitchen.
Friday – Check your cleaning supplies under the sink and sweep and mop the kitchen floor.
Set your timers and then take a break when it goes off!
For those of you who homeschool, this is a great week to start going through your homeschool supplies and books. Pass items on to others who may need them.
Last week, I took several boxes of craft supplies to our local thrift store that uses proceeds for Safe Harbor. They have a community classroom where you can pay a nominal feel to make crafts and support the ministry.
If you are attending any homeschool conferences this spring, decluttering first helps you know what you need to purchase, and it helps you have space to put the books you buy.
