There are no more toys in our kids' bedrooms. There are no more toys in the kitchen. There are no more toys in the living room. They have migrated on the winds of the Northern Wind called Mommy. Our toys have been relocated to one central location - the new "play room" in our basement/den area. One spot - not spread all over the house. It's amazing, I'll tell you. I was inspired by Large Family Logistics and Large Families on Purpose that bedrooms should be for sleeping and privacy. When I … [Read more...]

Post from Contributing Author Becky of Unabridged Becky This month, Stacy is inspiring us to clear out the clutter in our homes. I’ve been working alongside her decluttering my closet, sorting through my craft supplies and finally cleaning my basement. Y’all, my basement alone could be on an episode of Hoarders! It felt so good to sort through things and figure out what actually brought me joy. But as I cleaned things out, I found many things that brought me joy but I’d never used because I … [Read more...]

I was going to write about toys today - but then I changed my mind. I change my mind like I change underwear. And that's daily for those of you who are interested. I decided to write about how to declutter your home when you have little kids - because it seems to be a common question that I get. "Stacy! How can I do this if I have little kids?! I can't even go to the bathroom without someone being injured, much less declutter the pantry!"  Hey, I get it. Last night I got a total of 2 hours … [Read more...]

When I first read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and I started decluttering our entire home, Barry was 100% on board. I actually think he wanted me to start this process 12 years ago...when we got married. But then, there was Annie. Let me tell you about my Annie (age 6) - she's a firecracker, a smart cookie, an actress in the making....and a PACK RAT. She would save anything her little hands grabbed hold of: junk mail, broken toys, wormy chestnuts (yup), toilet paper tubes, empty … [Read more...]
