Making the Rules

Ok, so it looks as if I'll only have time to blog once a week.  But hey, I'm a single mom AND a teacher...I should have all the time in the world right? HA!!As you know, I'm trying to declutter my classroom and home and luckily I found a blog to help me on the classroom end. This weeks assignment over at
Clutter-Free Classroom
we are supposed to make a plan for decluttering and purging the stuff we don't need in our classroom.  I didn't think very long and hard about this but I did create this list as I was looking around my classroom and here is what I came up with: 

I decided to make it cutesy. :)

As I look at the list now, I think to myself "DUH! (insert face palm) Why haven't I done this myself a LONG time ago?"  Now all I need to do is make my apron and gather a few boxes (because I don't have any plastic tubs (I'm soooooo broke until payday) and I'll be on my way to begin my purging next week!! I can't wait....err...uh...yeah I can.  This. is. going. to. be. tough. if I don't spend enough time already up at my school.  This could add hours!!! :(  I'll be back to show the apron I make (hopefully before the weekend is up).  Have fun!


  1. love your rules & going to think of them when I am decluttering - thanks for sharing:) Oh, btw, I only have about once a week to post, too!! Better than none, right? :)
