If you have kids you know all too well the constant battle of keeping your house tidy and picked up.
For the first year of parenthood I thought we did pretty good at keeping the toy chaos under control. Then came the first Christmas. And then the first birthday. And it was like the number of toys grew exponentially over night.
When I first decided that I wanted to declutter our home I was very overwhelmed! I knew my motivation for decluttering, that was the easy part. But the actual decluttering part was what got me.
