Thx Alison! I enjoy your writings. It makes me smile each time I hear you talk about the past and your family, since I remember you from LCS.

Regarding this article, I'm the minimalist and my husband the keeper. This is the love-tension. Have any thoughts on how to navigate that?

Something that bothers me is pillows on the bed. What do you do with the king size pillow shams that match the quilt? When it's time to go to sleep there are in the way. They are so big they take up too much room on the bed. I don't have any place to put them.
