From Chaos to Calm: Day 73
Scripture Memory: “But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.”
Getting your home organized so that it stays that way can be a real challenge. I hope that as the last few weeks have gone by that you have found your home feeling more peaceful and less chaotic!
If you are like me, there are certain places in your home that over time seem to just collect clutter! In our house there is the drawer in the butler’s pantry, the buffet in the dining room, my desk, the laundry room table… the coat closet…
Yes, clutter seems to be a real enemy of mine! Sometimes it feels like there is no way I will ever have a perfectly clutter free home. And that may be true. I may never completely conquer the clutter bug, but at least I can stay on top of it so that the little piles of clutter hidden away in drawers or closets never take over control of my home.
The 10 Minute Declutter is a perfect solution to taming those piles where ever they may be! Each morning or evening, or even more than once a day, set the timer for 10 minutes and tackle an area in your home that has collected clutter.
If you are just getting started decluttering, it may help for you to make a list of places in your home that need decluttering. Be sure, however that the 10 Minute Declutter list is only small spaces that can be accomplished in 10 minutes or less. The 10 Minute Declutter is not for major closet cleaning!
You’ll be amazed at how much clutter can be reduced in just that little bit of time—and you will feel good knowing you accomplished something productive!

Homemaking is so much more than cleaning a house, cooking food, and making sure your family has clothes to wear. Homemaking is about nurturing a spirit of warmth, comfort, and love in your home.
