Make cleaning a family affair

Do you feel as if your home is in a constant state of chaos? I am so amazed by how quickly catalogs, newspapers, toys and clothes seem to multiply. Clearing clutter not only makes our homes look good, it can also make us feel better. Feng Shui believes that getting rid of clutter rids your home of negative stuck energy and allows space for positive energy to surge into all aspects of your life. Clearing clutter is very challenging specially if you have small kids who loves to play and a husband who is a pack rat. In our household each one has chores to do I call it "division of labor." DD is assigned to put back all the toys she played for the day, papers and books has to be put in the assigned boxes and she also has to give Lara (our cat) food and water. DH also has a box for all the junk mails and papers so it's easier for me to sort it out.

Clutter-busting strategies for families:

* Take gently used items to a resale shop.

* Use new, large pizza boxes to store children's art projects from school.

*Adopt an anti-clutter mentality- If you haven't used something in a year, chances are you won't use it again.
