This is the first in a series of Clutter-related articles geared specifically towards parents with young children at home.
The first thing I want to stress is that, if you are a parent, Clutter in your home is completely normal, and almost unavoidable.
Clutter in our home is way more common than most of us think. And, this is a shame. We tend to be embarrassed and very hard on ourselves if we are not able to keep on top of our clutter.
I am not a mother yet, but from my De-cluttering experience and through watching the flurry of activity in my Sister's home with a 5-yr old and a 3-yr old underfoot, I can fully appreciate the enormous amount of energy it takes to keep a home tidy.
Does this sound familiar? PILES of clothing and toys!!!!
And, as you tidy or organize these piles, your little ones are literally undoing your hard work right behind you. This is normal. Kids are busy. Kids grow tired of toys. Kids have re-kindled interest in toys that are tucked away. Kids grow out of clothes like wild-fire. And, so the cycle begins.
I will be updating this blog regularly with amazing tips, tricks, and techniques for parents that have helped my past clients tremendously in the daunting task of keeping a fairly un-cluttered and organized home.
Check back often, and feel free to shoot us any questions you may have!!
