The dining room is for dining. The dining room is for dining. The dining room is for dining.
Maybe we should make that our mantra for today since it’s so easy to forget that the real purpose of a dining room is for…say it with me…DINING!
Now, you may choose to use this space for homeschooling, crafting, sewing, scrapbooking, work projects, whatever. It’s your business how you want to use your dining room (even if it has nothing to do with dining).
But however you decide you want to use this room, you should be sure it is:
- Easily cleaned up
- Not a storage shed
- Available for dining, if desired
If you walk into your dining room and do anything other than smile, you need to spend some time decluttering and making the room work for you and your family.
Think about how you want to use this space and make it happen. If necessary, figure out ways to contain and conceal the projects that make their home near the dining room table. Consider how you can best enjoy the room.
And, as always, don’t worry if there’s too much work to accomplish it all in one day. Spread out your decluttering sessions over the course of several days. I promise that the decluttering police won’t show up at your door with trash bags and a stopwatch!
Just keep reminding yourself that doing something is always better than doing nothing. Ready? Set? Let’s go!
