Week Six: Tuesday

Do to others as you would have them do to you.
Luke 6:31

Today, you can either finish up on the kids’ rooms, guest room or tackle a playroom if you happen to have one.

The same rules that I listed above for toys apply to the playroom. At times, I’ve wished we had such a room, but I knew if we did then we would just have more stuff, especially toys. Maybe this describes you. I want to challenge you, just because you have the space, do you really need all that stuff/toys? Of course you don’t. All of those toys and stuff is taking time away from your life. You may not get it all done today, but start chipping away, you will be glad that you did.

The key with toys is having a home for them all to be easily put back when the kids are done playing. You don't need expensive storage solutions, I've found plastic bins and baskets to work great. 

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
Tuesday’s chore of cleaning the mirrors and glass around the house
