    Thanks Lindsay, these are all great ideas put into action. Before I got to the ‘action’ stage I had a heart to heart with myself and the family. We decided that every 6 months or so we would examine the clutter that was new. Each member had a choice to either toss it, put it into short or long term storage or take it to their room.
    I was tired of de cluttering everytime we had a dinner party.
    The process has worked… not w/o some energetic discussions but it is a process. I remind myself that Rome was not built in a day.
