Week Five: Friday

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
Colossians 3:17

Today, is your chance to tackle any other closets in your house. Whether that be a linen closet, craft closet, guest bedroom closet or a coat closet.

Let’s not over think this task. Work quickly. If you’re in the coat closet, are there coats that no one has worn in the last winter or two? Unless, they are for skiing or something specialized, then you can part with them.

If you’re going through the linen closet, do you have towels or sheets that are never needed or used and still in good condition? These could be given to someone in need and really bless them.

Are there things in your closets that are never used and just taking up space? Could that closet be utilized better for things that you need more frequently? For instance, just because a closet was designed as a linen closet doesn't mean you are limited to using it for linens. Our linen closet does store some bedding, but I also use it to house gift wrapping supplies and art supplies for the kids.

At this point, you have already seen how much easier you house is to clean without all of this stuff, so this should be a breeze for you. You are learning to let go of all that stuff! You are also seeing how being intentional about daily chores can simplify your life as well. You are on your way to having an intentional home!

Daily Chores: 
One load of laundry from start to finish
Make your bed
Unload the dishwasher in the morning, load and run it at night
Wipe down the kitchen counters and sink 

Wipe down the bathroom counters and sinks
