I agree with Flylady at flylady.net She has wonderful ideas. She does talk alot about how wonderful her tools are: Many of them are good, but you don't have to buy anything ini order to use the system. Just use what you have.
I also like what Karrie said, and I have found it to be true. One thing I learned early on was to fix my bed: it is a lrge piece in the room, and if it's messy the whole room looks messy. I also like a sold cover, as one with many patterns just makes the place look overcrowded, especially if there's plenty of clutter already.
For clothes, what I do with my children is ask them: Do you like it? Does it fit? Will you wear it?
If the answer to any of those three questions is no, I get rid of it, by passing it to the next child or by giving it away usually. I do the same thing with my husband and myself, giving me leeway for pregnancies, etc. This has helped keep the clothes down, which in turn keeps the laundry down.
You can do it - you Can succeed! And Welcome!
