Zone 4: The Master Bedroom

This week we are working on Zone 4: The Master Bedroom. It also includes any bathroom you may have off the master bedroom, and whatever lurks in the bedroom closet. This will be an ongoing process. You may or may not get the entire room cleaned this week. That is not the objective. Any thing you do in this room now will be an improvement over the way it was last week. Next month you will focus on it again.

Your bedroom should be the cleanest room in your home. Many of you still use yours as a garbage/clutter disposal for the rest of the house. If your bedroom is clean and clutter free, then it becomes an inviting haven for building your relationship with your spouse. The best gift you can give your children is a strong marriage. This is true whether your children are 2 or 40 years old.

Flybabies: Your task is to declutter this area. Spend 15 minutes a day this week doing something, anything, in the master bedroom. It did not get dirty in a week and it will not get clean in a week, but you will be making head-way. It is a trend! Get in the habit of decluttering in small segments of time. Decide what time of day you are going to tackle this little job, set a timer for 15 minutes, and just do it.

If Zone 4 is already decluttered: (that means no more clutter – only the things you use and love!) Go on to the detailed cleaning list. You will be amazed at how easy it is to relax and sleep in this room when the clutter is gone!

Go to the launch pad to see your missions for the week!

Welcome to Zone 4- The Master Bedroom! Can you guess where we spend about 1/3 of our lives? If you guessed the bed, you’re right! With us spending so much of our life here, it makes sense that we want it to be a peaceful and restful oasis. And how do we do this? By removing the clutter!

I want us to spend just a few minutes today and remove some of the clutter under the bed. Get rid of the wrappers, lost socks, and dust bunnies that are hiding under there. You’ll feel relaxed and peaceful tonight just knowing there is less clutter beneath your head.
