I think you should to declutter your environment at least 4 times a year. It will keep the accumulation of things from taken over your home and help you to stay organized and enjoy homemaking.
You should consider decluttering a week before or after the new year which is in the winter time, spring time, summer time, and in the fall.
I believe every season brings new changes and new revelations. Plus, you accumulate things in each seasons. So getting rid of clutter is essential if you want homemaking and homeschooling to be easy for you.
Make it a habit to reflect over your life and goals in each season. Listen inwardly to hear if the Holy Spirit wants to reveal important information to you for the current season.
I also love changing out my fashion style with each new season as well. I always ask myself; “Is this item still working for you or do you need to get rid of it?”
I think each season should make you evaluate your life and homeschool. I think you should ask the questions is this working for my home and homeschool? If not; “Should I get rid if it and replace it with some different?”
You should also consider decluttering your schedule, your time and your focus so that you will have success where it really matters the most.
When you do your seasonal decluttering, there are items that can never take a back seat to be decluttered, because if these things are not monitored, they can get out of control.

Some people never get rid of things in their environment and it just accumulates. The less you have in your environment, the less you have to clean and maintain the upkeep of it all. The less you have in your environment, the bigger your space feels.
Unless you have someone that comes in and clean your home, what I found out is that, moms are always trying to stay on top of the cleaning, laundry, cooking, schedules and trying to keep things orderly. A lot of times we moms get frustrated and overwhelmed because we are trying to maintain the upkeep of the things we are constantly bringing in our homes for our families.
It is exhausting cleaning up the same old things you just cleaned up 2 hours ago.
When I get disorganized, the things I instantly want to tackle are the dishes, paper, trash, clothes, shoes, toys, laundry and homeschool materials. I have to constantly stay on top of those items.
When I tackle my seasonal decluttering, I make sure to get every single detail. I clean out every cabinet, every closet, I get rid of any clothes that have stains, rips and are too small. I get rid of furniture that is broken and is not working for the space. I get rid of any appliances that are broken and dishes that are chipped. I get rid of shoes that are to little and worn out.
I declutter homeschool material and papers, I clean out every drawer, I declutter linen, I get rid of toys that my children have lost interest in and are broken. I declutter medicine, I declutter food that is in the cabinets and refrigerator that have expired. I declutter books and I wipe down and clean everything; walls, doors, ceiling fans, light fixtures, carpet, furniture and floors.
Sometimes we try to hold on to seasons that have come and is now gone and God wants to do something new with our lives. If we are too attached to things and if our identity is wrapped up in them, we can become stuck in a formal season.
