clutter control



This is one of our methods for attempting to control some of the chaos around our home.  We call these the "stair bags".

The kids bedrooms are upstairs, the kitchen and living room are down, the kids like to play in the kitchen and living room....enough said.

During the day we keep these bags on the stairs, anything that belongs back upstairs goes into the bag.  At the end of each day the bags are carried upstairs and all the accumulated "stuff" is put away.

[This is all theoretical of course, in reality we only get the bags up and stuff put away about once a week.  Even so, "stuff" in the stair bags is a vast improvement over "stuff" on the floor and kitchen counter!  And we continue to work towards making it a daily habit.]
