This Sparked Me!

I have had success in reducing clutter this way. When I walk into a room and see something that does not belong there, or that is out of place I take care of it right then. It is easier for me than letting things pile up and then having to spend much more time returning items to their rightful places.

I think this habit has been developed by following the system for housework. There are a couple of teams here at spark for those who follow flylady.

    It's certainly a flylady secret :) But it's a great one to share, because it does work. And another flylady secret: you can do everything for 15 minutes! emoticon

    Does anyone have tips for dealing with a husband who "collects" just about everything? We've been married only 8 years (2nd time for both of us) and I love him dearly, but could definitely do without the boxes and boxes of old newspaper clippings, years and years of magazines, 1,000 + videotapes of things he's recorded but will never look at again... I think you get the picture. Suggestions very welcome!

    That's really the best way to do it. I AGREE WHOLE HEARTEDLY.
