Too Much Stuff!

I've been working on getting the house in order for Christmas - just in case we have company. Do you have any idea how hard it is to keep the house clean with these three little girls running around?! While cleaning, I have found several things to declutter: my minimal fitness equipment (a case of free weights in sets of 1, 3, and 5 pounds - I'm certainly not starting an exercise regimen for at least the next 6 months), some of the girls' outgrown clothing, excess toys (where do all those toys come from?), unused Christmas decorations, and much more.

It seems that no matter how much "stuff" I remove from my house, more moves in the very next day. How do you keep from accumulating too much stuff?

Hi R--this time of the year is such a wonderful time, I don't even mind de-cluttering the house (wink).

Putting up the tree is so much clutter in itself--boxes, bulbs, and so on--but gotta love it (smile)!

Good question. As Amanda says, "My house has been taken over by little people." -sho

Hi dear,

I have been very busy lately, but now on holiday a visit is due to all the ones I have met and is part of my life for some reason. Thank you very much for your lovely email. I wish you and to your family the best of the best, and that all your dreams come true.God is in control and His time is always right!

Be in peace.
