It's a new week in the New Year Cleaning Challenge: the Family Room takes center stage.
For many of us, the family room is the hard-working hub of daily life. It's where we meet, eat, watch television, do homework, read and relax.
To bring order to the family room, we'll declutter, deep-clean and organize it this week in the New Year Cleaning Challenge.
To limit collectible items like media, magazines or craft supplies, reach for the containment principle. Designate an appropriate container, shelf or cabinet for storage, then decide that you'll only keep as many items as the container will hold. When a new issue of Family Fun magazine arrives, remove the oldest issue from the magazine holder and recycle it--to keep clutter at bay!
