I find these monthly checklists helpful in making sure I take care of important tasks around my home. I’m really looking forward to tackling this month’s list.
June Intentional Living Monthly Checklist
Review your mission statement
Set monthly goals
Going hand-in-hand with developing a mission statement, take some time this month to review your yearly goals. Then set some monthly goals to help you work toward achieving your goals for the year.

Determine books to read this month
I like to make a list of the books I want to read each month based on my yearly reading goals.
I talk a lot about books. Check out the following posts for book ideas to add to your list:
Update your budget
Put on your calendar one act of hospitality
Make a plan to have someone over this month! If you need some meal ideas check out these easy meals for hospitality or these 6 simple summer meals for hospitality. Don’t forget about your neighbors. Here are 20 ways to be intentional in your neighborhood!
Declutter and organize your kitchen
Store kids’ artwork and school memorabilia
The end of the school year always brings a pile of papers that I never know what to do with. I keep my child’s artwork and crafts in a big box under the coffee table throughout the year. Then at the end of the year I like to go through it and purge, store, repurpose, and file away the keepsakes.

Wash all bed pillows
I seriously had no idea you were supposed to do this! I recently did a little research and discovered that my pillows are gross.
So I’m adding this to our checklist for this month. I like Tidy Mom’s tutorial for washing your pillows. I will be sunning my pillows for a bit when they are done.
Plant seeds in vegetable garden
Frosts should be behind us now. Well, for most of us. I think our last frost isn’t until mid-June, but I’m taking my chances and getting my remaining seeds and starter plants into the ground.
Don’t forget to keep your vegetable garden watered!
Don’t have anywhere to plant a garden? Check out Apartment Gardening: A Practical Guide to Growing Vegetables in Small Spaces by Jami Balmet! My husband and I did apartment gardening one year. It was so fun!
Plan an outdoor family activity
Prepare for Father’s Day
Father’s Day always sneaks up on me, but it’s this month. So it’s on my list and I need to make a plan.
Check out my Gifts Board on Pinterest for ideas.
Make a plan for summer learning
Even though we’ll be taking a major break from anything organized this summer regarding learning time, I do want to be intentional to incorporate as much learning as I possibly can into our summer fun.
My three year old is still a sponge for knowledge. Therefore I want to be sure I incorporate lots of organic learning into our days. I would love for him to know all of his letters before we start preschool in the fall. He’s so close!
