reminded and inspired.

3. Habit of the Day

Return something that is out of place each time
you go in the direction it belongs. Neat, organized
people owe a lot of their neatness to this habit.
--------------------------------------

4. Family Reminder of the Day

"NO BELONGING LEFT BEHIND"

Leave no trace. The scouts have a rule that when you
leave an area you should leave no trash showing you
have been in the area.

Sounds like a winner for around the house.

5. Quote of the Day

Simplicity is an exact medium between too little
and too much.

Sir Joshua Reynolds

7. From the Trenches - CHILDREN'S CLOTHES

I used to have a problem with the clothes, we have 2
daughters. I finally bought 2 huge tubs (not sure how
many gallons but about 3 ft long and 2 ft high).
One is for the oldest, one for the youngest. I store
them in my basement laundry room where they are accessible,
not in the attic (that is what I used to do). We have a
"fashion show" twice a year and try on things to see what
fits. I always pop in a long video during this time so they
don't get bored or start complaining.

The out of season clothes go in the tub and the in season
go in their closet and drawers. I only keep the very
cutest clothes and get rid of the rest. If the tub
starts to overflow, it's time to weed out the worn
or out-of-style. They don't need more clothes than
what can fit in the tub. If something doesn't fit
the oldest, I throw it in the youngest's tub for her
to grow into. If something doesn't fit the youngest,
I hand it down to a friend or get rid of it. My friend's
and I swap clothes twice a year when our kid's grow out of them.

If they grow out of something during the season, I stick
it in the youngest's tub (if it's the oldest's) or get
rid of it (if it's the youngest's). With the tub being
in the laundry room I have easy access.
