Decluttering is always a challenge especially with children in the house. I find that if an item has a 'home' it has a much better chance of being put away. Most of our trouble is with items that we have not yet created a space for. They linger around and very quickly become clutter. If you have stuff but dont want to throw it away, consider freecycle.org - it is basically like a free craigs list. You post your stuff online and then the people that want it email you. You decide who to give it to and they come pick it up. I've given away tons of stuff including clothes, old TV's, plants, rusty old weights, etc. As they say, one man's junk . . . is another man's treasure. Just join the local group in your area. It always makes me feel much better to give something away instead of throwing it out and at times it has definately helped to declutter!

@Wendy Kibblewhite, I think that's actually the TV screen but I'm not sure!
