Step 1: Capture Before Pictures

To kick off your home transformation, grab your smartphone and take before pictures of each room. This step not only satisfies our desire for instant gratification but also helps uncover hidden clutter that we’ve grown accustomed to over time. These “before” snapshots will serve as a powerful motivator and a reference point for your progress.

Step 2: Gather Supplies

Before diving into the decluttering process, gather the necessary supplies. Besides standard cleaning items, make sure you have:
– Black trash bags (a must to prevent second-guessing your throw-away decisions).
– A cardboard box for donations (to avoid confusing donations with trash).
– Baskets and bins for organizing and relocating items within your home.

Pro tip: You don’t need to splurge on expensive baskets; dollar stores and thrift shops often offer affordable options.

Step 3: Tackle Visible Clutter

This month’s focus is on visible clutter rather than digging through drawers or emptying entire closets. By addressing what’s in plain sight, you’ll quickly transform your living space, making it comfortable and welcoming for guests during the holiday season.

Step 4: Set Overall Goals

In addition to decluttering and organizing, consider setting overall goals for the month. This could involve planning homeschool activities, scheduling reading time, hosting game nights, and dividing household chores. Don’t forget to include charitable work with your church and homeschool community. Choose activities that align with your family’s values and help your children grow into well-rounded individuals.

Step 5: Create a Thriving Home Environment

As homeschooling families, you spend a significant amount of time at home. Therefore, creating an environment that supports learning, relaxation, and entertainment is crucial. Allow your children the freedom to pursue their interests and avoid over-scheduling. The Organize-IT Planner is designed to help you strike a balance between organization and leisure, making your home a place of peace and value.
