Homeschoolers have so many reasons why our homes may become messy and stay messy. First off, we’ve got a bunch of bodies in our homes all day long. The typical family leaves for the day. I’m just going to be honest here and tell you that if three of us are at home, we are using that home space! The living room, the bathrooms, the kitchen, the dining room table. My house is definitely lived-in.
Secondly, (and this where this post comes in) I have a tendency to keep things because I think I might “need” that one day. “That” could be a cardboard box (science project or storage?), it could be three copies of Aesop’s Fables (what if three of us want to read it at the same time?), or it could be a small handful of acorn tops (we could use these to do crafts!)
The fact of the matter is that if I could just get rid of the clutter, my home could be a peaceful haven. And yours could be too. Here are instructions on how to do it in one weekend or less!
