Keeping Toys in One Spot

Keeping Toys in One Spot

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.

How To Get Your Kids On Board With Decluttering

How To Get Your Kids On Board With Decluttering

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.
