This week we are focusing on the main bathroom and one extra room. The extra room may be a second, or third bathroom, a guest bedroom, a child’s bedroom, the office, or maybe the laundry room. Just pick one extra room and focus on it this week.
The bathroom: Do you live in fear that someone will actually see your bathroom? It is too easy to close our eyes to the mess that is hiding right behind the bathroom door. This week, we are going to open that door to the bathroom, and BabyStep, by BabyStep, we are going to conquer the CHAOS that is the main bathroom!
Your bathroom should give you sense of relaxation and joy when you enter. This is a place for you to pamper and take care of yourself. Treat the room with love and respect and it will bless you with comfort and peace.
FlyBabies: Remove the obvious clutter, take out the dirty laundry, and empty the garbage can.
If your bathroom is clean but still cluttered: Start decluttering (makeup, old towels, old medicine, hair supplies, shampoos, etc.). Check out Kelly’s missions, she usually sends out one during the week which concentrates on decluttering one small area of your bathroom.
If your bathroom is decluttered: (that means no more clutter — only the things you use and love) Go onto the detailed cleaning list. You will be amazed at how wonderful a 20-minute mini-vacation in a hot bath (complete with candles and bubbles) will feel when the CHAOS is gone from the bathroom. Enjoy!
Don’t forget to add the bathroom to your daily routines. A couple of minutes focusing on the bathroom each day will make a huge difference!
Zone 3: The Bathroom and One Extra Room. Take a few moments this week to
examine your towels and wash cloths. Do you have an adequate amount? If not, budget a little money each week to purchase a new towel or a couple of wash cloths. Are you embarrassed to let anyone see your thread bare and torn towels? Then you also need to budget a little money for new towels! You, your family, and guests deserve nice fluffy towels to enjoy after bathing. What to do with the worn towels? Offer them to your local animal shelter. They usually love donations of used linens so that the animals have something besides a cold concrete floor to sleep on!
