Re: Practical Life and Care of Environment ideas

I've always assigned my middle and high school aged children the task of cleaning out closets and the pantry. The job involves making three piles - keep, donate, and throw out. I go through the piles with them and discuss why they made the choices they did, talk about the benefits of wise purchasing, and even discuss how much money I wasted buying things we obviously didn't need. They have learned a lot from this and are all now very organized and wise shoppers.

That's a great application for the keep, donate, and throw away process! Thank you for sharing!
